RE: 47457430
That would be great to have some information on the Caskey family. I don't know anything about that side of my family. My grandfather was an only child and he died when he was in his 60s. When you have the time, I'd love to see pics and hear what you have. Thanks.

Yes, my great-grandfather was Guy Ammon Caskey and my great, great grandfather was Pink D. Caskey. I would love any information that you have.

RE: 133072437
Sorry about the middle initial, that was an error I have now corrected.

The article was quite interesting and I included almost all of it, with a source link.

Unfortunately for me, all the info I need is in Rockbridge. I did go thru all the rockbridge personal property tax and posted on my website at if you would like to see.

It throws into question when your James came to Rockbridge as I have found a James all the way back to 1788. The progression thru the years has a James thru 1810.

The Archibald I am interested in shows up first in 1791 as a McCaskey of all things. Archibald is the one I am primarily interested in as he is the father of Nancy Casky who married my Robert Shasteen, a ggggrandfather. When you get back this far, you are lucky to tie folks in.

Believe Archibald came from PA, but have to go back now and look for a McCaskey there and am not too optimistic.

Will let you know if I am able to clarify Rockbridge any further. Guess my only question is if you know if your James had any relatives that followed him to Rockbridge. Suppose Archibald, James and John could all be related thru that period of time. Any chance your James might have started as a McCaskey? Could just be that the clerk took some latitude in 1791-97 and added the Mc periodically.

Also trying to tie in family to Caskey's and found info on James the reverend and added up.

Do you have further info on other Caskey's in Rockbridge Co VA?

Particularly interested in Archibald b circa 1750 PA,
assumed son Archibald b circa 1786, proven daughters Nancy b 1787, Elizabeth abt 1790 and Patsy pre 1797
potential son Thomas b abt 1787
potential son John b abt 1798 (m/b son of Thomas)
potential dau Sarah b abt 1782

Would like to share if interested

Caskey Family
I was searching for some of my ancestors on this site and found you have lots of information about the Caskey family. My grandfather was Guy Eugene Caskey. Are you also on by any chance with a public tree so I can see your source for the information you have?

(Benjamin) Finley Kane, son of Thomas
The information on this Memorial re Thomas Kane's son is somewhat incorrect. Finley Kane (as he was known in Colorado) did join a vigilence committee known as the Committee of Safety. He was shot in January 1875 when he joined more than a dozen members of the Committee who tried to set fire to the home of Elijah Gibbs. Gibbs had been tried and acquitted of the murder of George Harrington but was still suspected by some. When the fire was being lit, Gibbs opened fire. Two men were shot in the legs, Finley Kane, David Boon and his brother Samuel Boon were fatally wounded, taken to a neaby cabin where they died over the course of the following 3 days. In some accounts, Finley Kane is identified as perhaps being an uncle of Sam and David Boon. This is his Findagrave memorial
Finlay B. Kane
Death Date: 1875
Burial Place: Poncha Springs, Chaffee County, Colorado, USA
and this column by Ed Quillen

This is a good short essay about the ensuing troubles--known as the Lake County War --

Thanks for the pictures. I am descended from Samuel Wiley Jr, brother to John Wiley. I would be happy to share any Wiley information with other researchers.

RE: Bert Glasgow
Hi - so glad to meet a 5th cousin in the Glasgow family. I tried tracking our relations (which I did understand as you described them) in my Ancestry page, but haven't got it sorted out yet. I don't have your line filled in, so I'll have to spend some time with the Faris book.

I'm new to being a contributor (have used f.a.g for several years), so am excited about the connections. And people have been very responsive. It seems to be a good group. I just want to focus on my mother and father's families and on my husband's families. I'm not ready to work on strangers' graves, but I live a block from a huge old cemetery (Mountain View, Oakland, Calif), which I love and will probably get into recording in future years.

If I run into any roadblocks with your family line, I'll be in touch. Thanks, Janet Glasgow Mulshine
