Casey/Tasey/Tessier-Canada/New York

I happen to be one very confused Tessier descendant, I think! My gggrandfather was a Mike Casey or so he said. He served in the Civil War in the New York State Militia. He was born depending on the record in either 1837 or 1845. I have yet to find a death certificate for him. However, his wife Ann Elizabeth had the name Tasey on her death certificate. Information provided by her daughter Nora MacIntosh of Niagara Falls, New York. The story that has come down in our family is that whoever changed their name to Casey when they came to the US as they were in trouble with the law in Canada due to some sort of shady fur dealings. Does anyone have a clue? It seems the mystique in this family is of phenomenal proportions. Where are the facts? Just the facts?
