     Birth:      Jun. 21, 1861, Georgia, USA
     Death:      Dec. 11, 1939, Dallas, Dallas County, Texas, USA
     CIVIL WAR REFUGEE, WHO FLED WEST IN COVERED WAGON, DIES: The end of a covered wagon trail that started seventy-one years ago when Mrs. Emily Castleman was bungled up by her parents and brought to Cedar Hill from the old homestead in Georgia after it felt the wrath of Sherman's march to the sea came Monday when the pioneer resident died in a Dallas hospital. Mrs. Castleman, 77, had lived in Cedar Hill and surrounding territory since she was 6 years old.
     Too young to remember the terrors of Sherman's march to the sea that laid waste to much of the South, Mrs. Castleman often recalled stories her father told her of some of the harsh days that befell the Confederacy. William Bryant Sr., Mrs. Castleman's father, often told her of the effort he made to save one of his finest horses from the Union soldiers when they were sweeping through the South. He took the horse and tethered it in a thicket away from the other stock, but while the bluecoats were on the farm the horse neighed and was found and confiscated. The soldiers then took all her father's wheat out of the barn, scattered it along the rail fence and set it afire.
     In 1868, Mr. Bryant took his family in three covered wagons, put their life savings in an iron pot tied beneath one of the frames and set out for Texas. They crossed the Trinity River on a ferry and when the caravan reached Cedar Hill, Mrs. Bryant became ill and they stopped at Penn Springs on the W.B. Hamilton farm 200 yards south of Ten Mile Creek. The country pleased them and they settled there.
     Mrs. Castleman's first husband was James K. Polk Wilson, born 24 April 1848 and died 13 May 1896. They had one son, D.V. Wilson.
     Survivors include her second husband, Absalom T. Castleman of Cedar Hill, two sons, D. V. Wilson, radio technician with WRR and KVP of Dallas and R. W. Castleman of Cedar Hill.
     Funeral will be held at 2 pm Tuesday in the Lamar & Smith Chapel with the Rev. J.L. Hines of Sunset Church of Christ officiating. Burial will be in Little Bethel Memoral Park Cemetery at Cedar Hill. Pallbearers will be Neal Newton, Joe Wilson, W.B. Wylie, R. M. Turner, Duncan Cox, and Maurice Carr. SOURCE: Dallas Morning News.

     "Churchhill dated his will on November 8, 1710, and died about two weeks later. Lieutenant Governor Alexander Spotswood reported on December 15 that Churchhill had by then been dead for about three weeks. Churchhill's will directed that he be buried without conspicuous ceremony. If his fatal illness, which he may have contracted while attending Council meetings in the capital, prevented him from returning home, he may have been buried in Williamsburg; otherwise he was probably buried at his residence in Middlesex County. At the beginning of his will and also in the body Churchhill quoted 2 Kings 20:1: "Set thine house in Order for thou Shall Dye and not Live."

Per Dabney Family of Early VA (Susannah's page):
     "Susannah Dabney was born to George Dabney I and Elizabeth (__) Dabney circa 1702 in King William County, Virginia.
     "She was probably the Susannah Dabney who married Francis Thornton Strother of Hanover County in 1720. Some older genealogies have stated that her parents were Corneliius Dabney II and Sarah Jennings, which is impossible because Susannah’s son, John Dabney Strother was born in 1721, the year that Cornelius and Sarah were married. Other Dabney histories have claimed that she was the daughter of an unknown John Dabney and another Sarah Jennings or a Sarah Winston without offering evidence of their existence. On the other hand, Susannah’s father, George Dabney I, lived in King William County on the Pamunkey River which forms the eastern border of Hanover County and had numerous relatives in Hanover. The closeness of Francis and Susannah’s ages and the proximity of their residences makes it very probable that Susannah, daughter of George Dabney I was Francis’s wife. Although John is a fairly common name in later Dabney generations, this writer has never encountered evidence for a John Dabney born early enough to have been Susannah’s father.
     "Francis Strother was born in Richmond County, now King George County, in 1700. He was living in Hanover County when his eldest son, John, was born in 1721. He was still living there in 1727 when his mother deeded slaves to him. Francis and Susannah had eleven children: John Dabney, Margaret, William, Robert, Anthony, George, Francis, Mary, Behethland, Susannah, Elizabeth.
     "In 1745, Francis Strother of St. Martin’s Parish, Hanover County, purchased 583 acres in St. Mark’s Parish, Orange County and moved there. When Culpeper County was created from Orange County in 1749, his area was included in the new county, where he died in 1752. His will was dated April 17, 1751 and is recorded in Culpeper Will Book A, p. 57. [4, 5, 6, 7, 8]

This daughter married Joseph Crenshaw. The source of these children is found in several Louisa County, Virginia Chancery Court Case papers beginning with Case 1804-011 styled "William Trice vs Charles Crenshaw, Exer of Joseph Crenshaw, dec'd." William Trice [son of John and grandson of James] says he was the only son and only child of his father, John, who died under age [21?] intestate (James Trice Administrator, James died and Joseph Crenshaw was Exec).
     In this case James Trice of King William County, Virginia died in early 1769 or late 1768 since his estate was appraised 22nd Feb 1769 signed by Thos Crenshaw, George Dabney Junr, Thos Baker. At a court held for King William County April 1769 this inventory was returned and ordered to be recorded by the court. Joseph Crenshaw was Administrator of this estate. In one of these cases Joseph Crenshaw states he inherits "one moiety" (one half) of James Trice's estate by virtue of his wife, though Crenshaw does not name his wife.

Per Dabney Family of Early Virginia:
     "Dorothy Dabney was the fourth child of Cornelius Dabney I and the first child of his second wife, Susannah. According to one estimate, she was probably born about 1680 in the part of New Kent County that is now Hanover County.
     "She was married to Capt. William Anderson of King William County between June, 1699, and April, 1701. In 1701, they received a land patent for 179.5 acres in King Wiliam County, recently formed from Pamunkey Neck, previously part of King and Queen County. The patent adjoined three patents awarded at the same time to her half-brothers James and George Dabney and her half-sister Sarah (Dabney) Winston . The patents were awarded because their deceased father, Cornelius Dabney, had a lease or leases in Pamunkey Neck (later King William County) for 600 or 700 acres from the Pamunkey tribe before his death in 1694.
     "Dorothy and William had at least eight children. Their eldest son was William, who was living in 1720 when his mother deeded two slaves to him and in 1722 when his grandmother Susanna Dabney Anderson included him in her will, but died before reaching full majority. His brother, Dabney Anderson reached adulthood and died about 1734/35. There were six daughters: Elizabeth, Susannah, Sarah, Mary, Judith, and Ann, concerning whom nothing has been found by this writer.
     "William Anderson’s activities in King William County included service as a witness for deeds in 1704 and 1707. On June 20, 1707, he bought a half-acre lot in the recently surveyed village of Delaware Town (now West Point at the southern end of King William County). He was appointed Justice of the Peace in 1710 and sheriff in 1711 and 1712. He died in 1716/17. A copy of the inventory and appraisement of his estate made June 25. 1719 was filed in Louisa County Chancery Suit 1804-006 available in the Library of Virginia’s Chancery Record Index.
     "Dorothy remarried to James Trice Jr., probably of neighboring Caroline County, between 1720 and 1722. His father may have been the James Trice who received a land grant of 226 acres in 1673 in New Kent County and was charged with 350 acres in the 1704 Quit Rent Roll in King and Queen County, but in both cases probably in the area that later became Caroline County. James Trice Jr. was a road supervisor in 1733, executor for the estate of his step-son Dabney Anderson in 1735, guardian for Tabitha Booth in 1751, and a juror on five different panels.
     "Dorothy died about 1732. James Trice Jr, probably died about 1768, since the appraisal of his estate was dated February 22, 1769. [2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17]
