Nancy Casky Shasteen married Robert Shasteen 7 February 1804 in Rockbridge Co., VA. Her father was Archibald Casky, deceased at the time of their wedding. They left Amherst and Rockbridge Counties VA sometime after 1810 and spent a couple years in Gallia County OH before settling in Yellowbud, Ross Co., OH shortly before the 1820 census. Robert apparently passed away circa 1827-1828 as their last known child was born in 1824. His burial site is not known at this time, but may be the Springbank Cemetery in Yellowbud, Ross Co., OH where many of his descendants are buried.

William est 1807/16-1902 married
..Elizabeth Sly Pritchard 22 Mar 1836
..& Martha A. Myton 10 Feb 1878

Probable son, not firm as several of Robert's
brothers migrated to Ohio at about the same
time and their families aren't clear. Abner
was living with Edward in 1860, and his
mother Nancy was living with Edward in 1850:

Abner 1813-1863

are still in the Yellowbud area.
