Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 14, 1763
Morristown
Morris County
New Jersey, USA
Death: Dec. 14, 1835
Steuben County
New York, USA

Loammi was born in Morristown, NJ, and died in Steuben County, New York. He married Elizabeth Charlotta (called Charlotte) Fairchild. She was the daughter of Phineas & Sarah Fairchild. They were married in Morristown, NJ, in 1786, a fact on record at the Presbyterian Church in Morristown.

Loammi enlisted, in 1778, in the army as a private in Captain Robert Young's company, Colonel Wind's regiment, New Jersey troops, at age 18, as a substitute for his uncle Joseph, and later served a second enlistment. He was in the New York militia. On 3-4-1831, he applied for a war pension -- $23.33!

During the severe winter of 1779 and 1780, following the Battle of Trenton, the troops suffered almost as severely as at Valley Forge. George Washington's headquarters were at Morristown NJ, and George and Martha Washington that winter made their home with Phineas & Sarah Fairchild. Mr. Fairchild, a prominent businessman in that community, hauled wood with a team of 6 horses for the army. (Elizabeth) Charlotta Fairchild, a daughter, looked after the cooking much of the time for General Washington. It was at this time that Mr. Casterline met and later married Charlotta Fairchild.

They were the parents of 11 children, all born in New Jersey. At the end of the war most of the Casterline family moved to Steuben County, New York, or points farther west.

After Loammi's death in 1835, in Steuben County, New York Charlotta moved to Indiana to spend the rest of her days with her children. No one knows for sure where she is buried, but probably in the Baptist Church Cemetery in Hartford, Indiana, northeast corner.
