Your posting looking for Jesse needed additional information not posted:

Looking at your family tree in another postings:
re: Jesse Benjamin Caskey, posed 1/26/2009, identifies Jesse was born 17 March 1883 in Ohio. Married 1904 in Council Bluffs, IA.
--it also identified Bertha Jane Boggs/Caskey was born 18 Oct 1882 in Nebraska, and died 18 June 1914 in Council Bluffs, IA
-----Was this a typo or for this query did you believe she died in Council Bluffs, Iowa?
--Elsie "Pearl", the daughter was born 1912 in Omaha, Nebraska.

re: Jesse Benjamin Caskey, posted 1/26/2009 in the Caskey Family name, I see "George Washington Caskey" born about 1852 in Indiana, died about 1917 in Warren Co, Iowa, married to Harriet "Hattie" Heacock. Jessie (as spelled) was his son.

You also posted in 1901, Jesse, Amza and their father moved to WA State.

The Bureau of Land Management has an online database of Homestead Act claims:
--It shows on 6/3/1907, he obtained 160 acres of land located in Township 3-N, Range 11-E, Section 26. The land was in the North half of the NE corner; the South East corner of the NE corner; and the NE corner of the SE Corner of that Section.

If you are not aware of this land or know where it was, I can provide instructions to find it in a topographic map online. The 1910 Census shows George and Amza in Fruit Valley, Klickitat Co. I looked at the image for any name close to Jess, without success.

Now, based on your information, this George left this farm and returned to Iowa prior to his death in 1917? Any idea on what he did with his land? Sell? give to family?

The Washington Digital Archives:
has Elizabeth Caskey marriage to Lawrence K. Mays on 3/9/1931 in Clark County. Witness A.O. Caskey of Salmon Creek. Image available.
---A.O. Caskey Jr. married Dorothy F. Jordan March 29, 1941 in Clark Co. Witness was George Caskey.
---George P. Caskey married Mildred Ensley on 5/29/1939.

----------------Bertha Caskey----------
The Mountain View Cemetery, Davenport, Lincoln County, has a record book (only) entry for her:

The Washington Death Certificate Index:
Bertha J. Caskey, died 28 June 1914 in Lincoln County, WA at age 31 years 8 months. Father was Thomas Boggs, Mother Elizabeth Kesler. While this strongly appears to be the person you have identified. But, this is not "PROOF" that was where they were living.

Now for my research, I looked for:
Clarence Elliot, his father Emmett Elliot
Elsie or Pearl Caskey
Bertha Boggs, her father and mother Thomas and Elizabeth
Jess* Caskey/Cass*/Cask*
Except for the below, I found none of them in the US Census of 1900 to 1930. Did I just miss them, or were they just missed in the enumerations?

Harriet Heacock was in the 1870 Census in Iowa

Jessie B. Caskey in the 1900 Census living in Election District 16, Carbon County, Wyoming. He was born March 1883 in Missouri to father born in Indiana, mother in Iowa. He was a farm laborer, an employee of Henry Beckman, born in Germany.

Difficult to find these people
