  of 47

I am looking for information on James Howard CASTLEBERRY m Keturah PIERCE in St Clair Co AL and had land in southern Talladega Co AL. The 1850 Census shows he was born in GA, and was age 46.

Their son Thomas Howard (shown as Howard T in 1900CR) WILLIAMS m sister of my grandfather, Mary Ella WILLIAMS of Talladega AL. Mary Ella WILLIAMS was dau of P S WILLIAMS and Mary Alice WORTHINGTON of Talladega.

Alabama Deaths:

Is there anything in the Castleberry book about this family? I feel that the HOWARD name used in subsequent generations could be a family name. Was there a CASTLEBERRY married to a HOWARD who had a son James Howard CASTLEBERRY?

Thanks anyone who can help.
