He was a storekeeper at Washington Co., MissouriG.3 
These two families sailed together to America, and Andrew and George are probably cousins.
1. Andrew, of Glanworth according to his grave marker, was married to Ellen (ship's register and marriage record of their daughter Mary Ann). Ellen's family name was possibly Walsh, as given in the St. Joachim Cemetery records published by Washington Co. Missouri GenWeb (presumably from Church records). This same source gives her origin as Fermay C. Ireland, i.e. Fermoy, Co. Cork, a village about 10 km southeast of Glansworth.
2. George is almost certainly George Casey, named with his wife Catherine, née Harrington, in the Andrew Casey Probate record (1895-1897) as the decedent's paternal uncle and maternal aunt; George is named as the brother of John, Andrew, Francis, Mary and Ellen Casey, and Catherine as the sister of Mary Harrington, who married, first, Murphy, and second, O'Hanlon. Vital records give the origin of John Casey, Andrew Casey and Catherine Harrington as Mitchelstown, Co. Cork, which is about 15 km northeast of Glanworth and 20 km north of Fermoy.2
