Editor's Note: I couldn't find Caskey Hill but it could be east from Frewsburg. There were Caskeys living towards Cattaraugus in the mid 1800s so it could be the hill took the family's name. Halloween was not a big deal at all it would seem. I guess I knew trick or treating as we know it is a relatively modern tradition but I thought there would have been a party or two. I'm sure he mentioned a jack o lantern party before.
