Casey Lemuel burial


Lemuel Casey1,2,3,4 son of James Casey and Unknown Kirkland was born on Jan 26, 1813 in Rockingham, Richmond Co, NC. He was the oldest of eight known children.1,2,3,4,5,6,7

Lemuel Casey was listed in the household of James Casey in the census in 1830 in Richmond Co, NC. 1 male 15-20.8


The family of James Casey moved from Richmond Co, NC to Pike Co, AL in Feb, 1831. after the death of his wife. Lemuel later remembered that there were five families in the group and one was a Bryant family related to his mother's people. They were on the road three months and it rained twenty-one of those days without stopping.


Barbour Co AL was established on Dec 18 1832 from former Creek Indian lands and a portion of Pike County.



Lemuel Casey age 22 married Nancy Norris Cox age 15 daughter of Edward S Cox and Nancy Cox on Jan 20, 1836 in Barbour Co, AL.9


In 1837 Lemuel Casey served in the. Creek Indian War. Nancy's Creek pension application says that she doesn't remember his height, but that he had fair skin, light hair, and blue eyes.

Lemuel Casey was a Private in McInis's Company of the 42nd AL Militia during the Creek War. According to the widow's pension application papers filed in 1892 and 1893 by widow Nancy, Lemuel served in 1836 and 1837. He enlisted in May 1836 under Capt Faulk and did service at 'the Fort', then Ervington, now Eufaula, AL, also on Pea River and was not mustered out of service until May 1837. Serving with him were Henry Rizzell, Harrison Rizzell, Curtis Rizzell, AlladenThompson, Edward Byrd, Wright Faulk, Anthony Windhouse, and Jesse B.Garner. To Nancy's knowledge, Lemuel never applied for a land warrant based on his military service.

Government records said he enlisted on 16 May 1836 and served until 26 May 1836 in the Capt McInnis company. With 80 miles travel, he was officially credited with 14 days of service. According to the government records, he was listed on the payroll as 'Samuel Casey' and the payroll was so signed. (NOTE: In the 1870 census, it states that Lemuel could not read or write.)

The government had no record of Capt. Faulk's company. Therefore Nancy's pension application was rejected due to insufficient service. It is unknown if Nancy ever received a widow's pension.Some books show that a Samuel Casey purchased land in Township 9 Range 24 on 23 Nov 1836. This land is northwest of Clio. Could this be our Lemuel Casey who obtained land under the same name that he was officially listed under in the Indian Wars? Later Lemuel sold this same land. NOTE: Looking at the copy of the land grant on the Interior Department's web page, the name was Lemuel. In the scriptwriting style of the middle 1800's, Le and Sa appeared very similar and are often difficult to distinguish. When daughter Mary Casey was born in 1841, the Lemuel Casey family was living in Barbour Co AL about two miles west of Clio, AL. This location would be consistant with the land purchase in 1836 by 'Samuel' Casey that has been discussed earlier. For in Barbour Co, AL.10

Most of their children were born in Barbour Co. In 1851, the family moved down on the river at what is known as the 'old Gaines Place'. It was while the family lived here that Lemuel, who had never been sick, had 'bile trouble' caused partly by business troubles. (We would probably call it 'nervous tension' now.).

In 1852, Lemuel purchased land that had a little log house on the property that is now known as the 'old Phillips place'. This land was located about 7 miles directly south of Clio at what is now the junctions of routes 15 and 72. This line is partially in Dale Co and partially in Barbour Co.

In 1888 in Dale Co, AL, William Lemuel Casey sold Fox Daughtry. 200 acres. This land known as the Casey place is about 2 miles from Adauis Mill, once known as Leis Mill, east of Midland City AL.

She remembers that her father only had $195.00 and her mother sold a spinning wheel for $5.00 to make the $200. Lemuel Casey evidently sold or gave the land to his son William L Casey because there is a deed from Wm L Casey and wife Mary to Mr. Woodham in 1888. In 1944, the property was still in the Woodham family...
