Charles W. Caskey - Architect

Surnames: Caskey, Hunt, Moon
Charles W. Caskey built the Grand Hotel on Makinak Island, Michigan and is my G. G. grandfather. He married Edith Eleanor Hunt 5 Jul 1872. His father is James WIlliam Caskey, SR b. 7 Jan 1822 Glasgow, Scotland, d. 21 Apr 1904 in Harbor Spring, MI. Mother was Lucy Ann Moon, b. 9 Apr 1820 in Ellery, Chautaugua, NY, d. 25 Aug 1918 in Petoskey, MI.

According to the "Biographical HIstory of Northern Michigan Illustrated 1905" Charles W. Caskey and his wife Edith Hunt were living in Seattle, WA at this time operating a saw and planing mill. There is some discussion that he might have built some houses on Lake Washington in Seattle.

So far I've been stuck trying to find out if he died in Seattle or not, or any trace of him in Seattle. I have no details on his ultimate whereabouts nor do we know anything about who Edith Hunt's parents are and what her ultimate located ended up being.

Interested if anyone knows of the famous Charles who built the hotel.

I believe Charles W. Caskey was my great uncle?? My grandmother (still living) tells me he was her grandfather. I have all the records in storage and would be glad to share them with you in a few weeks when I unpack. Please contact me at the hotmail address listed.
