|I am a direct descendant of James Shasteen and Phoebe Padgett whose children migrated from Amherst & Rockbridge Counties VA circa 1812-1819. Robert, James & John settled in Yellowbud, Ross County OH by 1820 and Edmund & William, in Henry & Defiance Counties OH by 1830. |

..married Nancy Casky 7 Feb 1804
James Shasteen est 1785-1828/29

..Wife not known. Moved from
..Ross to Henry/Defiance Co OH 1821-1829
John Shasteen est 1790-1825/1827

Edmund/Edward Shasteen b 1787 d 1851

Elizabeth Shasteen b 1784/1800

..married Andrew Ewing 23 Jun 1826
Rosanna Shasteen b 1799 d 1869
..believe not married, raped in Indian attack
..produced Andrew Jackson Shasteen
I am particularly interested in connecting together the Shasteen lines that came off not only James and Phoebe, but also those that came off another James and his brother Jesse who were contemporaries of James and Phoebe. Undoubtedly, all three of these men are related to the Pierre Chastain line, but unfortunately, there has yet to be evidence to document how they are related to one another and to the Pierre Chastain line. In the 1780's and before these three men lived in the same part of Amherst Co. VA with an older James Shasteen (various spellings) who would be the key to connecting them together and to the Pierre Chastain line.
Only time will tell, or maybe not. Please feel free to contact me for more information on this line, especially if you stumble across any pertinent 1740-1780 information!

I'd first like to state I am not a member of this family. But I was wondering in what year did Amber Shasteen and her husband get married?

My mistake William's middle name is Franklin. I had never heard of him called Saw though. Curious if anyone knows how that came about. Thanks!

I am related to the Shasteen's buried in Wauseon. I am wondering about William Shasteen. He is listed as William Franklin "Saw" Shasteen here. I am wonder where the "Franklin and Saw" come from. I know his middle name is Allen.

James was from Londonderry County, Ireland and Peggy was from Tyrone County. They owned linen mills and barely escaped with their lives. They settled around Natural Bridge, Rockbridge County, Virginia. I don't know his father's name or anything else really. My father's has an old chest in the basement with all kinds of information, I am going to get it out and see if I can find any information. My father was born on the Caskey homestead. If I obtained any more information, I will let you know.

My great x3 grandfather was old Jim Caskey of Rockbridge County, Virginia. His son, Rev. James Caskey lived in Ripley. We had been told that he was buried in the Old Ripley cemetery but never able to find his stone. Did not add information concerning him because never sure he was really buried there. Do not have any information concerning James Caskey when he lived in Rockbridge County, Virginia. My information started when he left there and came to Adams County, Ohio. I do have move information on Rev. James Caskey. Did not know his middle initial was J. Where were you able to gain that information?

Sorry, I was typing and hit a button so I don't know if you received the information I sent or not. If not let me know and I will resend.

|Frances Beckstrom Helmintoller||RE: Henry Brown Cemetery|
Can't be any more specific than the directions I gave on the cemetery description. The jeep trail is overgrown a little on the road and this is where you leave your vehicle and start walking. The walk is no difficult, it's finding the trail that's hard. I went by it several times before I found it by asking a nearby resident (he was a relative) where it was. The cemetery is not kept and very overgrown. Wear shoes, a 5' black racer and I parted company when I nearly put my nose on him.
|Jean Fremion McKibben||John Yeager 27177394|
Am researching John Yeager, Find A Grave #27177394, buried at Pierce Witmer Cemetery in LaGrange County, Indiana. I am searching for his specific military service in the War of 1812 (regiment, etc.) and am having difficulty finding any John Yeager who enlisted from Beaver or Butler counties - as well as there are several John Yeagers! The Veterans' Headstone Project wishes to add a supplemental marker at his grave site highlighting his military service - any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Jean
Do you have documentation showing his middle name as David? Only thing I found was Davis.

Both are buried in Greenhill Cemetery. I will go take a photo for you. I walked this cemetery for the Moultrie Country Historical Society & updated their book. I only live a mile away. The Shasteen's are all in my line. You transferred some to me. Send me a note with the ones you want photos of. I may have them on my computer.
