José Cassiano (1791-1862), born Giuseppe Cassini, was born in San Reno, Italy and came to America as a young merchant in New Orleans. Cassiano moved to San Antonio where he operated a store providing supplies to Texan forces during the Texas Revolution and was active in local government and business.
Business and personal papers generated and acquired by members of the Cassiano and Pérez families provide a record of activity in San Antonio that stretches over several generations.
