Mr. Casey died Sunday. He was born Jan. 28, 1902, the son of Columbus D. Casey and Sydney Fry Casey. Feb 4, 1934, he married Clara Milville in Ladonia.
Survivors include his wife of Ladonia: nephews William C. Casey of Copperas Cove, Donald Casey Foster of DeSoto, Dale Foster of Orange Grove and Elmo Foster of Santa Maria, Calif.; and his niece Delma [obit ends here although there was obviously more and her surname was apparently KYLE - see the Greeville Herald Banner below.]
Note: I can identify William C. Casey, as a son of Columbus D. Casey Jr. Donald, Dale, & Elmo Foster were sons of John's sister Myrtle. Delma Kyle was likely a great niece, a granddaughter of Myrtle's because her oldest daughter Anna married a Delma [or Delmar] Kyle.

Casey (John G., 79 y, 28 Jan 1902-20 Dec 1981)
this obit has been abstracted but gives the same data with the exception that it lists Delma as Delma Kyle.
I believe that Clara Melville that married John Gilbert Casey and Vada Melville that married his brother Columbus were sisters. James A. Melville took his own life when he was age 72 and his obit names two daughters married to Caseys. See Vada's notes for more information.
