Bio and Links
I have just started researching my French/Casteel Family history. This has quickly become one of the most exciting and frustrating things I have done in years. To help in my research I took photos of headstones as a way to remember names and dates. Then, thanks to Frank Irons, Sr., he suggested I do this as well. I use to have a lot of other hobbies: Transferring home videos to DVD, sewing, woodworking, and knitting.
All of those other things have quickly gone to the wayside. This is now an addiction. Somebody HELP!!!

Thanks for Find A Grave Correction: Sallie Scott
Hi, Rita! Thanks for your note with Sally Percy's parents. I did know of them, but when I made this entry, I wasn't doing bios (yet). Sally is my gr-gr-grmo. Are you related? I had not heard that Isham's first name was John, and it isn't on his marker; I added his link to Sally. I have some burial information for Ann Obenchain, but don't actually know where's she's buried. Do you know if she's buried in the same cemetery with Isham, i.e. Presbyterian Cem., Lynchburg, VA? Thanks again for taking to time to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you again. Best, Trink

Joseph Selby Fenwick
Are you related to this Joseph Selby Fenwick. I am descended from mother Mary Bridget Welch Fenwick, she is my great aunt.
Looking for photos of Aunt Bridget, she was one of nine girls of James H. Welch and Mary Isabelle Grant, and we have very few photos of her.
Thanks. Julia Mitchel 46905166

Barnabas VanZant
Hello, am interested in the Barnabas VanZant tombstone. I cannot read it in the photo online and wonder if you can give me any more info about what is stated on the birth and date dates. Also interested in the location of the tombstone and maybe other pics of the area (it is a lot but I am excited about this find!). Thanks!

RE: Barnabus Cahoom
Hi Rita

I think you are correct about the father of Catherine being Barnabus Van Zandt. I also think that a Felix Van Zandt was a son of Barnabus, although others have him as a son of a Van Zandt who died in Tennessee. Naming patterns and the fact that Barnabus Van Zandt died in Ashe County seem add more evidence that Barnabus is her father. I believe I have seen a picture of his headstone, but don't know where. I would love a downloaded copy if you are able to send me one.

Barnabus "Barney" Calhoun is my great-grandfather.

Thanks very much - Steve Peters

Hi,

I received your note to add his parents, but instead I am transferring him to you, since he is family.
