Captain Casey

Am seeking any info about a CAPTAIN CASEY (John?) who served as head of the Cheyenne Scouts at Ft. Keogh 1890s or so. Thank you!

Believe you are referencing LT Ned Casey that started an enlisted troop of Indians, mostly Cheyennes at Fort Keogh as troop L and know as Case'ys scouts. A very good source is the book PHOTOGRAPHER ON AN ARMY MULE. Sadly Casey was killed in the aftermath of the Wounded Knee affair in 1891 by being shot in the back by a young Indian, Plenty Horses.
