Casey history:

Here is a history page for Casey.

Casey was founded on 12 January 1869 by an Irish Railroad foreman. The town was first used as a waiting place for those who wanted to live in the new, but not officially designated, county seat, Dalmanutha. But Dalmanutha never really got off the ground and Casey grew rapidly to over a 1,000 residents. Gradually, the boom subsided, but Casey continued to be a stable community with a caring group of residents.

"seven miles west of Casey, a train was robbed by the notorious Jesse James, a villain known widely for his consistent train robberies. A little known fact involving the Jesse James robbery is that he and his crew actually purchased the rope they used to derail the train at Valentine's Hardware in Casey. In addition to buying an item used in the robbery, the "gang" requested services from a local blacksmith livery stable to care for their horses." (excerpt from the above history page)
