GUEST,mick Origins: tune of Vigilante Man (Woody Guthrie) (17) RE: Vigilante Man, Woody Guthrie, Tune? 22 Mar 05

The Preacher Casey mentioned in the lyric is presumably the same man that "vigillante thugs" shoot in Guthrie's Grapes of Wrath inspired ballad ,Tom Joad . Does anybody know whether the preacher is based on a historical character ?
Sorry if this is creeping a bit off thread.
