I am seeking data on Leo D Shasteen and his family. I have data below that shows Leo is a son of Otto W Shasteen who I think is the son of J B Shasteen b. 1844 AL. Any assistance would be appreciated. I am trying to find data that might link J B Shasteen to Jesse Shasteen b.1804 KY d. 15 Mar 1873 Franklin Co., TN. I am hoping that J B could be James Shasteen b. 1844 AL as found in Joy Q Gallagher's book.
I think Otto's father was J B Shasteen b. 1844 AL who I found in the 1880 Census in Pike, Stoddard, MO as a 36 year old farmer married to Sarah age 26 born in AR data as follows: J. B.
