casey family auckland area
« on: Monday 01 January 18 00:03 GMT (UK) »
In early 2000's was in contact with a Ros McMullen from Oz re a Casey family from NZ.Ros was researching family and sent me data which I lost due to computer failure.Lost contact as Ros has since died.The family in question came from county Limerick in Ireland and emigrated to Auckland area c 1879 on ship May Queen-Michael Casey and wife Mary Anne Meade.They had a son with unusual name of Adalbert Basil Casey who married in 1916.There were descendants and I hope to reconnect with them.Michael Casey was a brother of My grgrm Mary Casey Hanly.
