Decendents of Jacob Castle (View posts)
Posted: 945976213000
I am a decendent of Jacob Castle, Sr., Joseph, Sarah Castle-Salyer, Anna Salyer Castle, Henry, Jasper, Henry, James "Jim" Cassell??, my father Henry F.Castle to ME.
Which of Jacob's sibs do you hit? Drop a line, Cuz, and let's get into the befuddled lineage. Castles and Salyers mixed and mingled a lot. I have a Salyer Book with much Castle/Salyer scoop. Including Jacob.
Merry CHRISTmas!!

from reading all the e-mails I think it is safe to say that I am related to most of you.My line is through Jacob Cassel. I am looking for any inforamtion on him and his wife Sowege.From reading the other e-mails it looks like he had a few wives. Please let me know if you have any other inforamtion. Also I was wondering if that was the only Indian Heritage that we have?
I would like to hear about any other stories on the Castles also. Hope to hear from you soon.

Greetings, Cuz! Glad to know you're getting into the roots. Apparently Jacob had at least one Indian wife (and possibly another). Records for half-breeds weren't kept or recorded at that time and what I have found out comes from old records and passed-on scoop. Relative to Indian blood, in my line my ggrandfather Henry was married to a Cherokee first. They had four sibs and she died of heart failure. He remarried a white Robinson and they had six more sibs. I don't know which line you hailed from...share if you will. About two generations prior to my ggf Henry, Joseph Castle had a daughter Sarah who married a Samuel Salyer. Another dau of Joseph married a John Stapleton. These two daughters of Joseph were 1/2 Cherokee also as Joseph's wife was Cherokee. Waiting to hear from you.

According to my digs, Zachariah Castle was a son of Jacob Castle, Jr. His children were Henry-b1775, Jacob III-b1784, Valentine-b1810, Zedekiah-b1788, Benjamin-b1790, Joseph-b1791, John-b1792, Lydia-b1796, ZACHARIAH-b1797, Elijah-b1798, William-b1799, Nathan-b1800, Inman-b1801, and James-b1802. All were born in VA but Nathan, Inman, Zedekiah and Benjamin died in KY. The others died in VA. Appears we are cousins, Phillip. Where were your born and live? I was born in Russell Co., VA and moved to SC in '64. Within my family both spellings of the Surname are used Castle/Cassell. That had always been a contention until we began our research. Seems that after Yelles Kessel, Johannes, Arnold and Peter used Cassel; Jacob Sr. and all his sibs used Castle. Share some scoop with me at

I made two mistakes in my first reply--used your name as sender and gave the wrong birthdate for Valentine. It should be 1786.
