      James M. Caskey was born in Green county, Ala., Nov. 14, 1837, and died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. W. L. Moore, in Harlan township, Feb. 17, 1920 aged 82 years 3 months and 3 days. He was the sons of James and Catherine Caskey and was one of a family of ten children; two of whom survive him - Mrs. Mary Pollock of Clarinda and Joseph Caskey of Sterling, Kans. The family left the South in 1852 on account of the sin of slavery and moved to Cook county, Ill., remaining there until 1856 when they came to Page county, Iowa. The late Mr. Caskey was married to Ellen Moore March 21, 1871. To this union there were forn four children; John C. of Huron, S. Dak.; James A., who died April 13, 1890; William A. of Denison, Kans., and Elizabeth E., of Clarinda. The mother died Jan. 17, 1911. He united with the Reformed Presbyterian church of Clarinda, when a young man, where he remained a faithful member until his death. He leaves an example of firm faith and reliance in his Savior who he served.
      "We do not mourn as those who have no hope for we are persuaded that for him to depart and be with Christ is far better."
      The preceding obituary of the late Mr. Caskey was read by Dr. W. C. Williamson at the funeral which was held at the Reformed Presbyterian church Friday afternoon. Short prayer was offered by Dr. Williamson at the house before the remains were taken to the church where Dr. Williamson conducted the services. There was congregational singing. Interment was in the cemetery at the church.
