Paul: Thank you for responding. I have more on the Casteels than Atheys. I do not concur with you on the following items 1.Do not find Edward CASTEEL, a brother to Shadrack &Lucy. 2.Shadrack C. b abt 1735. Do you know of Thomas TUBS, b ca 1819 PA or his wife Elizabeth b ca 1810 PA? The 1850 census of Franklin Twp., Des Moines Co.,IA p 372B, listed in the household of William A. ROBERTS (my husband's gr-grandfather);his wife Delia (CASTEEL?); a Sarah CASTEEL, 90, born VA;and Louisa A., 60, born PA. There appears to be a connection between the CASTEEL and ROBERTS' families. William A. ROBERTS, Sr., born ca 1802 was the father of Wm.A.,Jr., also Marcus A. ROBERTS. I'm wondering if the initial "A" is for ATHEY. Wm. Sr.was born in ME as were his parents.
Still hope to find a Delia CASTEEL born ca 1811 MD. She died 24 Jun 1869 Des Moines Co., IA, bur Loper Cem.,Des Moines Co., IA. Any assistance appreciated. Barb
