About Casey Family Train Tree
Welcome: The Casey Family Tree

Since 2015, genealogy has become my new hobby.  I have really enjoyed researching my wife's family 
history and I knew I would one day want to discover more about the paternal and maternal sides of 
my family. Well that day has come. In December 2016, a friend asked me to participate in an Indiana 
University Genealogical Family Health study geared towards African-Americans. The study was to see 
how individuals communicate within their families regarding health concerns and other familial 
issues.  I didn’t have any knowledge of health concerns on my paternal side of my family. I made a 
few phone calls and found out that my Great Uncle Lawrence lived less than 10 miles away. I 
relocated to Indianapolis, Indiana about 12 years ago from Detroit, Michigan.

After reconnecting with other family members in January 2017. I started to and built an Family Tree and created a Closed Facebook Group Page called the Casey Family Train. My 
thought was the more people I can get involved in my search, the better off it would be.  They may 
have pictures of relatives that you do not have.  They may have stories to share or information to 
give.  These are things that cannot be replaced.  A picture, once lost, is gone forever.  In some 
cases, it can be all that anyone has to remember another person by.  We need to collect 
information, document it, verify it and digitized it. To share this documentation with future 

The Ancestry and Facebook collaboration in part was my attempt gather and collect the fruits from 
our many family trees at an effective low cost from duplicating for other searches by giving credit 
and citation for those who shared their findings and documents. This was my attempt to try to keep 
the cost down from the collecting of vital records information of Birth Certificates, Marriage 
Certificates, Death Certificates, census records, military records property , probate, photo’s, 
Bible forwards and funeral programs.

Here is my story:

I thought it would be a great Idea to research and document my paternal side of my family tree the 
Casey’s. After obtaining Ancestry DNA test results on me and my Great Uncle I thought that would 
try to connect and reconnect the first and second generation of Martha Casey my 4th Great 
Grandmother after talking with my Great Aunt Irma Pennington, Great Uncle and other Casey Family 
Historians. I presented my finding in my Genealogy Project called the Golden Spike at my first 
Casey Family Reunion in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. But what I am finding here on Ancestry is the 
many connections with my maternal side of my family tree. So I’m guessing that I better take 
advantage of this Ancestry journey opportunity as well.

I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. My mother’s grandparents were Simpson Gray and Hattie 
Maxwell (both of Warren County, Mississippi) and Samuel W Leslie (Chipley Georgia) and Leila 
Thornhill (Henning, Tennessee). My mother was named in honor of both of her grandmothers. My mother 
name is Lela Hattie Gray. Back in 1988 the GWC Family Reunion was in Detroit, Michigan. We all 
received a copy of our Family Tree Genealogy Booklet that had prepared by Mr. Louis (Skip) Gates 
and friend of my Uncle Samuel Simpson Gray. Last August at the annual GWC Family Reunion. I 
accepted the responsibility to host next year 2018 Family Reunion. The GWC is Gray-Williams-Casey 
branch of vast forest of our Family Tree.

Tribal Pages:

This is an invitation for you to join us here on Tribal Pages Casey Family Tree Page. It is nice 
for me as one of the family historian/genealogist to have other family members just go to the 
website to view and edit the many Family Trees. With one password for access and another for 
editing, I can freely allow others to view our family trees without worrying someone might feel the 
need to change our family history to fit their preferences. I had been looking for a webpage to 
help me and the many branches of my family trees to compare and share information.  My favorite 
feature of the website is the capability to access it in any location via the internet while still 
having it remain private and password protected. Another feature of the website is a calendar with 
all the living family members’ birthdays and anniversaries. 

Tribal Page will give us an opportunity to share and uplift one another from near and far. Tribal 
Pages will give us direct link and connection to nurture and grow our family trees. This will gives 
us a very unique way of communicating with one another for upcoming events, gatherings such as 
Family Reunions and Home-goings. I'm willing to help do my part and wishing that we all do.  So 
it’s time to step up our research here with Tribal Pages as it appears to be a cut above the rest. 
Tribal Pages offers family tree building tools, photo sharing features and search options to help 
you find (or find out about) family members. You can opt to receive updates on information and the 
site provides a real time smart match, making it quicker and easier to search for family members.
If you have any question or comments please contact me the Charles Louis Buddy Casey the 
Administrator of this site.  This is a Family based Genealogy webpage was goes live on Oct 1, 2017.


I'm really excited and looking forward to using Tribal Pages to help assist me and our family 
members in researching our Family Trees.
