Captain John Smith, founded the first English Colony at Jamestown,
Virginia in 1607. The following are some (1,033) Early Virginia

book. The Muster is a fine example of the work of the often maligned
Captain John Harvey. It tells us who was living where in the numerous
small settlements in and around Jamestown Island, often the names and
dates of arrival of the ships which brought them to Virginia, and
sometimes the ages of the persons listed. Copies of the Muster other
than Hotness give us the amount of supplies and arms on hand at each
plantation. Of greatest interest for the student of today is that among
those listed in the Muster are found the names of ancestors whose
descendants generations later performed great service to the Old
Dominion and to the Nation.

among the founders of Rhode Islands shipping industry.

A Samuel Casey who lived in Essex County, Mass., died there in 1670, and
an entry in the records of the Probate Court of April 28th in that year
says:

In at least fifteen States of the Union there are families named Casey,
all
descended from Thomas Casey, a settler at Newport, Rhode Island, as
early as 1658. From a short history of the Casey family,The Casey Family
of East
Greenwich, R. I., published in 1927 in connection with the celebration
of the
250th anniversary of the founding of the town. Written by Edward Perch
Casey, we learn that Thomas Casey was born in Ireland about 1637. And
according to a tradition handed down in the successive generations of
the family, Thomas Casey's parents were killed during the Irish
insurrection in 1641. The orphan child was carried by his nurse to
England, whence he emigrated to this country at the age of twenty-one
and located at Newport, of which community he became one of the leading
business men and is mentioned as occupying a place of considerable
social importance for many years. With other citizens

of Rhode Island, including the Charles McCarthy before mentioned, he was
one of the founders of the town of East Greenwich in 1677, and
twenty-five years later he was listed as one of the proprietors of the
common lands in Newport. He died in 1711, leaving three sons, Thomas
(born 1663), Adam (born 1667) and Samuel (born 1675).Austins
Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island.38 Thomas Casey (2) remained in
Newport, where he inherited his fathers estate, but Adam and Samuel
struck out for themselves, settling at Warwick and Kingston, R. I.,
respectively, and these three were the ancestors of several Rhode Island
families of the name. Thomas Casey (2) and his wife, Rebecca, had sons,
John and Edmund, and daughters, Rebecca and Sarah, born at Newport
between 1695 and 1704; Adam Casey and his wife, Mary, had Thomas, Sills,
Edward, Mary and Sarah, born between 1706 and 1718, and Samuel Casey was
the father of Thomas, John, Samuel and Widen, whose births were recorded
between 1716 and 1726.Vital Records of Rhode Island.39

In many ways, the Casey's were a remarkable family, and in town books,
probate and land records, parish registers, tax lists, military rolls
and other public records, representatives of successive generations of
Casey's appear for two hundred and fifty years after the original
immigrant came to this country.
Several of the Casey's are mentioned as successful merchants and
shipping
masters in command of vessels trading with Southern ports and the West
Indies. Indeed, we are told that Thomas Casey was one of those famous
ship owners of Narragansett Bay whose enterprise laid the foundations of
Rhode Islands industrial history.The Casey Family of East Greenwich, by
Edward Perch Casey.40 They well preserved the record of the Fighting
Race, for in every generation of the Casey's there have been officers of
the name in the army and the navy, beginning with the Indian war in the

eighteenth century and down even to the present day. One of them, Sills
Casey, born at East Greenwich in 1807, was a distinguished American
soldier. He served with the United States Army in numerous Indian
conflicts on the western frontiers, the Seminal War in Florida, the
Mexican and the Civil Wars, and in two campaigns against the Indians on
the Pacific Coast. It was he who led the forlorn hope at the storming of
Chapultepec, in which he was severely wounded, and he gallantly defended
with his division his position at Fair Oaks, Virginia. He retired in
1868, after forty-two years military service, with the rank of Major
General. Colonel Thomas Lincoln Casey, also a distinguished officer in
the Civil War, Captain Sills Casey of the Navy and Edward P. Casey,
architect of one of the handsomest public buildings in the United
States, the Library of Congress at Washington, were also of this family.
Much more can be said to show what an important American family the
Casey's were, but one searches in vain in New England histories for any
mention of the fact that their immigrant ancestor was an Exile from
Erin, as far back as 279 years ago!

Daniel McGinnis served under Captain Thomas Wheeler in the Three County
Troop in the defence of Brook field in August, 1675, and down to June,
1676, Daniel McKennys, as well as Richard Brian, John Casey, Hugh
Cologne or Gollihu and James Welsh, served under Captain Samuel Mosey.
On December 19, 1675, these men took part in the Great Swamp Fight,
where the Narragansett Indians made a determined stand against the
united forces of the Massachusetts Bay, Connecticut and Plymouth
colonies.Suffolk County Deeds, Lib. 3, fools. 491 and 502-504.63
McGinnis was corporal and at one time Clerk of Moseys company. In
September, 1676, Daniel Megan was in Captain Daniel Henchman's company,

South Carolina was the eighth state to ratify the federal Constitution,
on May 23, 1788. To mollify Piedmont settlers, who demanded increased
representation, the General Assembly agreed in 1786 to move the
capital. Columbia was established as the new seat of government. In
the first federal census of 1790, South Carolina's population of 249,073
ranked 7th. Non whites accounted for 43.7% of the total and were
concentrated
in the low country around Charleston.

Note: Abler Casey is the only Casey listed here.

Abler was not listed in the Petite Juror for the Parish of Prince George

There are Green's and Brooks in the 1624 census of Jamestown. Maybe no
connection but would make a nice story.
