I need some help finding out about my Castleman family. My greatgrand father Thomas Andrew Castleman was born in Commanche Co. TX Aug 28, 1856. I have a copy of his death cert. He died in Mason Co. But had lived in Menard for awhile. His father is listed as Jim and mother unknown. He had 4 offspring by his first wife ?(?Crawford?). One of these was my grandfather Ed Castleman. Thomas Andrew then married Rhoda Owens and they had 9 offspring. I had never met my greatgrand father or my grandfather. Now I have 5 grandkids of my own, I would like to be able to show them our family history. Thomas Andrew's 4 children were; Pearl DoB uk; Mattie Beatrice 1880; Thomas Jefferson 11-19-1882 and Ed 2-13-1890. My grandfather was adopted by the James Doddy family. I have a copy of the 1900 San Saba Co census showing this. My grand father marreid Elise Esttle Simmons and had 4 offspring. Lawerence Edgar (1918); my father David Earl(1920); Ida Esttle(1923) and Velma May(1925). Wanting to find info on my greatgrand mother (?CrawforD?) and my greatgreatgrand father Jim. Where they came from. Any help would be greatly appreciated. May God Bless.
