“Hello, kit number 398997 - We are in the Casey project in the group that recommended to order an SNF, we did and the results are back today. I am interested in seeing what that means to our placement in the Casey project. The most recent relative is a great grandfather John Joseph Casey born 1862 in Ireland and immigrated to Philadelphia, Pa. I would be interested to know if anyone in the group has Casey relatives from Philadelphia, Pa. Thank you.”

Hello everyone. I have been on a life long quest to find my biological family. I know who my biological mother is but have no idea who my biological father is. I was born to a single German mother (who would not reveal the father) and adopted as a baby by an American military couple. This all has led me to DNA in the hopes of discovering more. My Y-DNA test shows my connection to the Casey family and name but that is all I have to go on so far and am not at all understanding of DNA. I have been going on the assumption that my biological father was an American military man stationed in Germany around 1957. Any assistance or direction you could provide would be appreciated.

Mary Agnes Casey was my great grandmother. Born abt 1853. And rumor has the family in County Cork. She married my great grandfather George Hedden Osborn of Newark New Jersey. She was either in New Jersey or in New York. she claims on several documents that she was born in Brooklyn.

Welcome - Casey/B88577 who has tested to 67 markers. According the NevGen predictor tool, he appears to be U106 (one of his matches is also tested U106 as well). So I assigned him to the U106 grouping.

I am very new to the DNA aspects of genealogy but my test kit # is 296182 and I had my son's DNA tested. His name is Brian Smith. I am specifically looking for information on the Alphin family from Randolph, AR and for the Denman family from Attala, MS.

I am a descendant of the Caseys from South Carolina and specifically John Abner Casey. Also Abner Brooks Casey who was married to Harriet Green. I have a note that says Abner Casey lived in Roanoke and married a Welch woman, Hettie Green. In 1760 the family moved to Spartanburg, SC. His children were: Jesse, John, Christopher, Randolph, James, Moses, Levi, Nancy, and Benjamin.

The information I just posted came from Tim Casey, a descendent of Christopher Casey. Source was John Kent Family Tree.

Hello everyone! Well, my earliest known Casey was named Uriah, born 1815 in Ohio. He married Ellenorah Leiter who was born in 1820 Maryland. The Leiter's appear to be Dutch. Uriah Casey, I am not sure at this point, although I suspect he is of Northern Ireland heritage. The Casey's had some unusual names for their daughters, Emerilla (Emma), Scenia, Maudilla and Electia. The sons were named Calvin and Austin. They lived in Crawford County, OH. Emma married Sullivan Ross, my GG Grandfather from Hardin County, OH. Sullivan was a Railroad Engineer before leaving for Mercer County, MO where they arrived by 1870 with his brother's family, George H. Ross. I know there was at least one Uriah Casey born in Spartansburg, SC and one from Johnson County, AR. Uriah died in 1893. The 1880 did not list where his parents were born. Some believe his parents were Daniel CASE and Nancy FRANCIS, however, I have not seen any documentation.

I posted here quite a while back about my great great grandfather James Samuel Casey. My kit number is 477812. I recently upgraded to the 67 markers. What we know is that James immigrated to the U.S. around 1871 served in the Union army and showed up in Dallas, Texas in the 1880s. He's buried in Dallas. He married Margaret Kiely possibly in Dallas or maybe New York. I'd love to find more information about his family in Ireland. Do you have any other suggestions?
