Jess Caster

interviewed 3 August 1977
Jess Caster (born 1884) was born on the same farm where his father was born, and he lived in the county all his life. He remembers the good and bad in Montgomery Country during the Depression, including the Klan ("They never done nothing but lots of people join them, you know. Of course, it was $10.00 to get in. I didn't pay much attention to them.")
