On July 24, 1953, a ceremony was held at Vaughan, where more than 3, 000 persons gathered to witness the unveiling of a bronze marker at the spot where Casey met his fate.
In attendance were Sim Webb, Casey ’ s fireman, and Janie Jones, Casey ’ s widow.
Beneath Casey ’ s name, the following legend appeared: “ A famous ballad, the folklore of American railroading, and a postage stamp commemorate the colorful and courageous engineer who was killed in a wreck here in 1900.
