Family legend told of a Tom Casey, orphaned prior to 1850, that became a Catholic Priest in New York. We are trying to track him down and see if the legend is true.

In doing some further research, it seems that the word Romysh might be an Old English word, used when the Church of England broke away from Rome. No idea why it would have been used in 1880 NY census unless the census taker was 'an old Englishman'?
