Biography of Albert Casey

Source: The History of Holt and Atchison Counties, Missouri. National Historical Co., St. Joseph, MO., 1882, pp. 877-8.

Albert Casey, section 35, was born in Nova Scotia, in August, 1836. His father, Edward Casey, came to Missouri and settled in this county near Phelps, in 1849. He bought a claim and improved a farm, and the boys although young, worked hard with their father to make a good home. Mrs. Casey was formerly Jeanette Hunter, a sister of Uncle Billy and Jimmy Hunter, who were among the oldest settlers here. They were married in Nova Scotia, in 1835, and had 15 children, six now living: Albert, Levi, Lafayette, Miram, Annie, Mary (now Mrs. James M. Scammon). Hiram, a young man, was killed in a well. In 1868, Albert married Miss Lydia Tate, the daughter of Judge Samuel B. Tate, who was from Kentucky. He settled in the county in 1849. He married Miss Jane Sloan, in Kentucky: they had 11 children, six of whom are living: Cecelia, James and Samuel (twins), Charles, Mary, Margaret and Lydia. Mr. and Mrs. Casey have but one child: Don Guy, born June 19, 1871. Mr. Casey subsequently moved upon his farm of eighty acres, which he improved: it is easy to work and sure of crop, and it is situated on the old bed of the Missouri: very little of it washes. Mr. Casey is a general favorite with everybody and is candid and reliable. Fifty yards from his door is the landing, where steamboats used to stop for wood, and now what was once the bed of the immense Missouri River, is a pasture for stock. He enlisted in the Confederate Army, State Guards, Second Regiment, during the war, and was with General Price for 11 months, when he entered the battery service. He lost an eye at the Battle of Three Creeks in Arkansas. He is a member of the M. E. Church, south, and is Democratic in his political views. In 1853, Mr. Casey went to California and was engaged for some time in the mines, and in herding cattle. This was his first trip from home and he experienced a severe time in the cold winter, crossing the mountains.
