Long Description:
Our surname is Casey and this marker is in tribute to my husband's 3rd Great grandfather, John Austin Casey, who lived here during the Civil War.

It's interesting if you notice the street names around this area, you will find Mauldin Street, a neighbor of John Casey.

One of John Casey's brothers, Elisha L. Casey, married Francis Allen in 1850. Looking at the map, you can note the intersection of 'Francis' and 'Ellen' Streets. In present day Marietta, at this intersection is a house built on Land Lot 222.

While visiting Atlanta a few years back I went to see this house. A cornerstone in the short wall leading up to the house had 'ALLEN' etched into it. While I have no proof (yet), I believe that somehow this is all connected to Francis Allen.
