James Casey - Ireland 1800's

My great great grandfather's name was James Casey. He was from Ireland may have been born around 1800, came to America on business in 1821. He was married in Ireland, his wife from there died. I do not know her name. He left their two daughters, Mary Casey (born 1830/31) and her sister Ann Casey, who were born in USA. he travelled back and forth from Ireland to America doing the family mercantile business (linen etc) and later brought his daughters here and had a mercantile business in downtown Manhattan, New York City. I know their business was in the NYC directory in 1856, but may have also been before that. Mary Casey was my great grandmother. I believe that James father's name was John Casey who was born in Ireland (don't know exact town for sure) around 1770. John Casey came to America on business in 1785, and made several voyages back and forth and I believe began the Casey's mercantile in downtown Manhattan. He died in 1821 as far as I can find out.
James' second wife here in usa was Kathy or Cathy Kinsella, an American.

So, please let me hear from you if any of these things about our James Casey seem familiar. I have other information too.

Thanks

Casey Family
