Contact requested with Irish Type III cluster members

I would like to make contact with all Caseys who are of the Irish Type III cluster.
see http://au.geocities.com/t120r61/index.htm
Of particular interest is the close connections of most of the Caseys on the phylogram chart.
The bulk form one group with a Hanvey showing his close relationship with this group, but there are two Caseys, while still part of the Irish Type III cluster, are quite seperate form the other Caseys.

I am presently in contact with Kit Numbers:-
29956
34073
45068
51924
53484
77349
And I would like to contact Kit numbers:-

Incomplete postings

I would like to request that donors complete the information concerning their oldest known ancestor. Some submissions have nothing at all, and some have no dates or locations. With the repetitive naming that the Caseys used, it it difficult enought to keep them all straight even with complete info. But, with mimimal or no data, it makes for a difficult anaysis. Please! If you have gone to the trouble to submit DNA, finish the process and share enough information so that the rest of us can try to figure out where each donor falls within the family. Thanks!

Unassigned submissions

I am wondering why DNA test #54166 is listed in the results grouping as Unassigned, when it is plainly identified as a descendant of Pleasant Casey of Tennessee. Why is it not grouped with the SC-TN Casey grouping?

Update in progress

Upon the urgings of Robert Casey, I have notified FTDNA to upgrade my original 25 marker test to the more sophisticated 67 marker test. BTW it was only $148 additional dollars and didn't seem to require another sample...

Just thought I'd let y'all know!

Casey's in County Tipperary

The Casey PlotOn a recent trip to Ireland I tracked down some Casey's in two different graveyards in the vicinity of Newport, County Tipperary; Rockvale Cemetery and Ballymackeogh Graveyard. I'm working still to establish my own connection to any of them. I took photos of each Casey headstone we found in each of them and you can find those photos in my Flickr album. And there's a pretty good story in my blog on how we found them.

Below are the transcriptions from three of the headstones in Ballymackeogh.

New DNA Results for Daniel Casey, RWS

A second set of DNA test results just received have validated the bloodline for Daniel Casey, RWS. He was born ca 1760, lived in Virginia, then moved to Georgia about 1785 where he resided in Wilkes, later Elbert County. His son John Casey married Elizabeth Pace, dau. of Barnabas Pace. Two of John and Elizabeth's sons, Wiley Casey b 23 May 1802 in GA, and Barnabas, b 3 Apr 1816 in GA, are represented by male descendants who submitted DNA for the Casey project. The identity of this Daniel Casey's father is currently unknown or unproven, but he seems to have close ties with one Roger Casey of Virginia who eventually lived in Lincoln Co., GA close to the SC border.

Hanvey Casey connection

Kit 51924 reflecting Pleasant Casey has just been upgraded to 67 markers. While the results continue to match Caseys from TN and SC, the only PERFECT match is with one Samuel Hanvey from Ulster (County Down). The Hanvey family arrived in SC about 1766 and lived in all the same places as the Caseys, intermarrying with them over the years. It may be wise to observe this family as we do our Casey research. Perhaps a Hanvey took in an orphaned Casey boy at some point? Perhaps a Casey gem of information is hidden in some of the Hanvey records. If some of you have already made this connection,

Ireland Travel Stories

Hello Fellow Casey Hunters! This year, at long last, I'm taking my first trip to Ireland. My family history leads to Parish Murroe in County Limerick, and so my travel plans will be to fly into Dublin and depart from Shannon, with the week in between covering ground between the two. I'm interested to know if anyone has stories to share about their travels to Ireland. Did you have any breakthroughs on your family tree hunt? Meet any Caseys? Any favorite places to share? I'd love to hear about it. Feel free to post as a comment or send email directly to me at chris@casey.com.

New Year, New Results Chart

Happy New Year Casey cousins! We received some new results today and our results chart has been updated with two new members added to Group #1. Is there agreement taht we should rename 'Group #1' to 'TN & SC Caseys' as suggested by Robert? Are there any placements in our sub-groupings that look wrong? Let me know your thoughts with a comment.
