It's been forever since I posted that question and know lots more now. David Castleman is my 7th great-grandfather. What I know about his line is that it goes back to at least 1643 in Germany. From David to me is: David Castleman William Castleman William Castleman Eloisa Castleman Green Laura Virginia Green Leache Caleb Lytton Leache Corrie Leah Leache Henderson my grandfather my father me! Through Andreas Castleman (david's dad)mom, we are related to Mackenzie Bowell, Prime Minister of Canada in the 1890's. I am related to George Washington however, he's my 2nd cousin 11 times removed, but not through the Castelman family.
