Smith Casterline, served various terms in city government, and owned one of the first photographic galleries in Hartford City. The family members still own several of his tintypes, as proof of this ability. He also wrote religious songs, and set poetry to music and played a melodeon. He was very much involved in music, and played for the famous ‘square dances' that were held in the community. He kept a daily diary from youth to old age, recording the weather, and other items of interest. These are family heirlooms.
