The Ledfords, Callahans, Castles, Burkes & Salyers of VA TN Updated February 18, 2007
About Our Family Research
I am doing family history of the Ledfords & Callahans and Castle, Salyers & Burke of Virginia and Tennessee. My father was C.P. Harold Ledford who was born in Letcher County, KY on 23 January 1928 and died on 11 July 1953 in Bristol, Virginia. I have never been able to find a birth certificate and was told it could have been destroyed during a fire in KY.
My Grandfather from my Mother's side is George Washington Castle born in 01 December 1880 and died 09 December 1961. I am told his Mother was Josie Castle Sayler. Josie is buried at the Old Grassy Creek Church in Virginia. He married Nancy "Nannie(y)Ann Burke born 02 September 1889 and died 10 September 1982; a daughter of James Lemuel Burke and Melvinia Dean.
Am willing to share the information I have available alone these Family Names; my name list is extensive! I am currently living in California City, California 93505.
