There must have been a wagon train of mostly-related families leave from Daviess Co. You stated your Caskey's came from DeKalb Co., TN to KY in 1868 - and the Mitchell/Riggs ties. This is strange. I know a little about McCaskey/McCluskey/Cuskey from KY/TN in TX < 1835.
Isaac C "Ike" was a witness in my gf Abraham Riggs (1791-1874?) 1812 bounty, restitution, and pension records.
Hannah Hill Riggs' father, Frederick J. Hill, enlisted in DeKalb Co, TN and was stationed at Ft. McLean, KY with the 5th TN Cav US. He had several brothers with him and cousins already in the Daviess/McLean area.
Post-CW, Fred'k went back to DeKalb Co, bought more land, then in 1868 he, with his family and m-i-l (Adeline Trammell Drewry, d/o Wm Baton Trammell and Annis Fisher of SC>TN) in tow...back to Daviess/McLean area. Adeline's bro Shadrack Trammell md Elizabeth McIntire d/o Archibald McIntire (KY>TN)& Elizabeth White, whose sis, I'm told, married a Mitchell. I think Fred'k Hill's sister md a Mitchell. Abram Riggs, s/o Abraham & Eliz Crabtree Riggs, md Hannah Hill (from DeKalb Co, TN) in Daviess Co. 1871.
Abram and Hannah are in old Sevier/Franklin Co, AR about 1877, as is Ike Riggs. Seems like Napoleon Riggs comes with them. 1892 they are in Cisco, Eastland Co, TX for ca 20 years-number of Mitchells there, then on to OK. I think Abram and Hannah Riggs' son William Riley Riggs was the first JP in Bethany, OK.
None of this may matter but it seems curious.
