Casey, James Joseph (1870–1924)

After ailing for six months, Mr. James Joseph Casey, one of the most prominent and popular men in the Orange district, died last night, at the age of 54 years.

A native of Hill-street, where he died, he received his early education at St. Stanislaus' College, Bathurst, and finished it at St. Ignatius College, Riverview. When a young man, he entered the office of his uncle, the late Mr. James Dalton, and he remained there throughout, acting for several years past as secretary of Dalton's Estate, Ltd., a position which he held until illness overtook him.

He had evinced a keen interest in public affairs, and was one of the leading workers on the hospital committee; he was also a prominent member of the Orange Civic and Bowling clubs. He has left a widow, three daughters, and one son.

His mother, Mrs. Michael Casey one of the oldest of the local identities, survives him; also Mr. Thomas Casey, a brother, of Orange; and Mother Teresa, of Mayfield Convent, Sydney, a sister.
