HARRY D. CASKET, son of M. C. and Eliza L. (Thayer) Caskey, was born at Great Valley, N. Y., January 5, 1862. He received his education at the Chamberlain Institute, Randolph, N. Y., and entered the office of the Courant at that place as an apprentice, in 1878. Remaining three years, he moved to Warren, Penn., and worked in various offices in Western Pennsylvania and Western New York until 1883, when he puchased the office of the Cherry Creek (N. Y.) Monitor, and in partnership with John Ackley, conducted that paper until the close of the year, when he returned to Randolph. In the summer of 1884 he moved to Butte, Mont., and entered the Miner office. In 1885-86 he traveled through the West, and, returning to Pennsylvania, resumed work, establishing the Sharon Leader and Ceres Courant. After a term of fifteen months, he moved to Austin, September 1, 1887, and with the editor of the Reporter established the Austin Autograph. In April, 1888, he sold the office to Snyder & Co., who in turn, sold to W. H. Sullivan in November, 1888. In April, 1889, the latter sold to D. W. Butterworth, but in September of that year Mr. Sullivan resumed possession of the office, and immediately turned it over to Mr. Caskey, who has been editor since its establishment here. His marriage with Miss Katie Brock, took place November 1, 1887, at Ceres, N. Y. Mr. Caskey has always been a Democrat, and his journal is strongly favorable to that party.
