Levi Casey
Birth: c. 1752
South Carolina, USA
Death: Feb. 3, 1807
Washington
District of Columbia
District Of Columbia, USA

US Congressman. Elected as a Democratic-Republican to the Eighth and Ninth Congresses, he served from 1803 until his death. Casey was a South Carolina native but very little is known of his early life. During the Revolutionary War he was commissioned a Captain in the Continental Army and fought with distinction at the Siege of Savannah (1779) and at the battles of Rocky Mount (1780), Hanging Rock (1780), and Cowpens (1781). At the end of the conflict he was a Colonel in command of South Carolina's Little River Regiment, and subsequently became a Brigadier General of the State Militia. He was a five-term member of the State Senate (1781 and 1782, 1800 to 1802) and served nine terms in the State House of Representatives (1786 to 1788, 1792 to 1795, 1798 to 1799), prior to his election to the US House. Casey was reelected to a third term but died before taking his seat in the Tenth Congress. Originally buried in a cemetery outside the Washington city limits, he was reinterred with honors at Congressional Cemetery in 1832. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
