Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy for years and when I retired from TVA in 2004, I finally had the time to really get involved. I grew up in East Tennessee, but have lived in Ohio and Western KY also. My primary research has been on the Casteel, Long, Gay, Cardin, Cook, Lewis, Thompson, and Maxwell names. Also have researched my wife's family (Douthit). It is always interesting to find distant relatives spread across this vast country and share family information.

Robin Cyrier
Barney Casteel
Hello. My name is Robin Cyrier(Godden). My mother's name is Patricia Godden (Casteel-maiden name). Barney Casteel is my 3rd great grandfather. I am related to him through my grandfather Horace Casteel. Buried at Edgewood-Greenwood Cemetery in Apopka, FL. in Orange County. His father's name was James "General" "Gentile" Casteel. He had a couple of nicknames. On his grave it reads Gentile M Casteel. His son Willie's name also shares the headstone. They were buried in Apopka, FL at the Edgewood-Greenwood cemetery. A picture of the headstone can be found on James' father was Jasper Casteel and Jasper's father was Barney Casteel. You may already have this information. Please feel free to contact me at if you would like.

I must have hit back space, part of message got deleted. Mayo has a brother named Barney O Casteel. There is an infant buried there with name Barney A. Casteel and I don't have a connection so far.

Mayo Casteel's parents are, get this, Barney Osborn and Fannie Awilder Casteel buried at Zion baptist Church Cemetery. Mayo has a brother who is buried at eternal Hills memory Garden and his son is called Little Barney. If you find a connection I'll be happy to help. Happy hunting, Patricia

Noticed someone had recently sent you an email about Robert A. Casteel. If this is one buried at Lawnwood Memorial Park, he is my first cousin. I have not been able to locate Find A Grave Memorials for Mayo and Myrtle his parents. If you are related to this line could you help me out. I also have all of Mayo's brothers, sisters and parents. Mayo is my mother's brother.
Grateful for any info.

RE: John Billingsley (57617240)
Hi, Steve!
John Billingsley was my 4th great grandfather. Our Billingsley family is a very large one. My line from John is via his son, Judge Samuel W Billingsley > his son, Nathaniel Hale Billingsley > his son, John Franklin Billingsley > his daughter, Mary Jane Billingsley Brummett, my grandmother. I will make the link you requested but will keep the memorial for the time being.

Sorry to be so slow! I didn't see the request at my contributor site. (FYI, sending a suggestion generates an email and is usually more expeditious.)

BTW, it was such an honor to be able to perform Brother Casteel's Masonic Funeral. I didn't have the pleasure of knowing him, but I've no doubt he was a good man.

To be affiliated with such men, especially WW II Vets, is more honor than I deserve. I never take it lightly.

With Regards,

The Preacher's Kid

Well what a neat Easter find! I have linked up a TON of our family and am excited to see your connection. I know I have seen the Casteel name before. I will check my records tomorrow. So excited to "meet" you!

RE: J. M. Cardin
Hi - Pleased to meet you. I have transferred him to your management. I am descended from the Cardin/Carden family from this area. Do you know who his parents are?
