Tandy Young Casey was the son of Hiram and Catherine Depriest Casey. Hiram was born in Green County GA and died in Hardeman Co., TN. Catherine Depriest was also born in GA and died in Mountain Home, Baxter Co., AR.
Tandy Young Casey, who was named for a close friend of the family, Col. Tandy Young, was a big handsome man. He weighed 226 and was 6' 4" when he was 21. He moved to Izard Co.,AR, about 1853 with his widowed mother. After his marriage to Malinda Jane Wolf, daughter of Major Jacob and Elizabeth Lantz Sanders Wolf, he located near the mouth of the Northfork River. He enlisted in the Confederate Army in 1861. He served as Quartermaster in Freeman's Brigade and also with General Price in his raid in Missouri. After the war, he re-opened his store and farmed. Two of his sons were medical doctors: Dr. Andrew Jackson Casey of Marcella, AR and Dr. Zadock Casey last known living in Temple, TX. One son, Samuel M. Casey, a lawyer, was also buried in this same cemetery. Sons, Hiram and Tandy Jr. were businessmen.
Tandy's first wife, Malinda Jane Wolf Casey and his daughter Laura Kate Casey Acre are buried in the Mountain View, AR Cemetery. Nothing is found for the child, George A. Casey b. 1859 and shown as female on 1860 census, but is not on the 1870 census with the family - so perhaps this child died before 1870 and if so might be buried in the Wolf Cemetery near Norfork as that is where the family was living at that time. Tandy Young Casey Jr. lived his adult life in Pecos, TX and is buried there. Hiram DePriest Casey died before he was 30 and is buried in the Mountain View Cemetery. He and his wife Amanda Grigsby did have one daughter Mande L. Casey. The son Zadock Casey is buried with his wife and two children in the Hillcrest Cemetery in Temple, Bell Co., TX. There could have been a daughter Ann, but if so she was born after the 1880 census with no other information available.
After Malinda's death, Tandy moved to Batesville where one of his sons and many members of the Wolf family resided. I did not find him for the 1900 census though I know he should have been listed. He married for a second time to Victoria V. Adrain Casey. There are no known children from this second marraige.
