Bio and Links
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.

Confirmed offspring:

Robert Shasteen est 1785-1825/27
..married Nancy Casky 7 Feb 1804
James Shasteen est 1785-1828/29
..believe married Martha
William Shasteen est 1786-after 1841
..Wife not known. Moved from
..Ross to Henry/Defiance Co OH 1821-1829
John Shasteen est 1790-1825/1827
..married Hannah Whitten 03 May 1815
Edmund/Edward Shasteen b 1787 d 1851
..married Susana Whitten 03 Jul 1823
..moved from Ross to Henry/Defiance Co.
Elizabeth Shasteen b 1784/1800
Frances Shasteen b 1784/1800
..married Nathaniel Holly 1818

Presumed offspring
Mary A. Shasteen b 1798 d aft 1860
..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!

Hi, you have requested a picture and wrote you'd like to know who she is buried next to. Would you also like pictures of each side of her headstone plus the ones in front and back? LC

RE: Leroy Grove
Greetings, Ray.
Thanks for the info. I did attempt some research a few years ago to build a family tree on, but quit when my trial ran out and I kept running into dead ends.
Leroy Edgar Grove was my grandfather on my maternal side, William Arthur was his father, and Benjamin was William's father, but that is where my trail ends.
According to my Aunts and uncles, who are the children of Leroy, there is no recollection of a Sampson Grove, or a connection to the Shasteen line. In your research is Sampson Benjamin's father?
You may have just given me another lead, my good sir.
Thank you!
