There’s a story about my great-grandfather Ed Caswell in this week’s Cochrane Times-Post. The story begins:
As we mark the centennial of Cochrane’s incorporation this year, there are many builders, business leaders, parents, and politicians who could be celebrated and cited as critical to the town’s creation and endurance. When we recognize that the town’s survival through the gritty early years was really a function of the collective efforts of many seemingly ordinary people, it becomes particularly difficult to point to a single hero. There were many. But if we had to pick one exemplary fellow to represent the group, Ed Caswell would be a good choice.
