CASSIUS E. BERRY. Among the rising young men and successful farmers is the subject of this sketch. He was born in Knox county, Ohio, Sept. 11, 1850. Moved to Indiana with his parents when very small, and then moved from there to Iowa and lived five years. He moved to Missouri in 1858, and was educated in Grundy county. Mr. Berry moved to Jasper county in 1866, locating in Lincoln township for seven years. In 1873 he left home and bought his present fine farm of 240 acres, all improved, having a good orchard. Deer Creek runs through the farm. He was married to Tillie Hall in 1873, daughter of Judge Hall, who was the judge of Jasper county for the past two years. By this union they have one child, Lillie A. Mr. Berry is a very enterprising man, and soon bids fair to become one of the substantial men of Jasper county. In politics he is a staunch Republican.
