THE CASTEEL FAMILY....

                       By CHARLES E. HOYE

ThOMAS CASTEEL OF THE BLOOMlNG ROSE

       One of the pioneer settlers of what is now Garrett County, Maryland, was Thomas Casteel, son of Shadrack and Laurena.  He was born in Prince George's County, Maryland, and settled first in Valley Township, Bedford County, Pennsylvania, where he and his brother, Archibald, served in Captain Evan Cessna's company of Bedford militia during the Revolutionary War.
       In the census of 1790, Thomas Casteel is listed as head of a family of five in Bedford County.
       Prior to 1798, Thomas Casteel migrated to Maryland. He is said to
have resided for a time on part of the "Blooming Rose" tract near the Friend settlement, now the Thomas Fike farm, but in 1814 Nathaniel Wallace, for
$100, deeded him 73 1/2 acres of "Black Oak Ridge" and  39 3/4 acres of
"Narrow Escape," which became the Casteel home near the James McMullen
settlement, about two miles southwest of Friendsville, Maryland. On the
assessment roll of 1798, Thomas Casteel was assessed with two horses, nine
cattle, etc., valued at =A354:15s~but no land. In the cansus of 1800 he was
listed in the same neighborhood, in Sandy Creek Hundred, as head of a family
of ten. The pioneer Thomas Casteel and his wife are probably buried in the old Hall graveyard on Blooming Rose,
       Among their children were:
       (a) Thomas, who appears to have served in a Pennsylvania artillery
cornpany in 1813;

CASTEEL ANCESTRY
(The following account of the ancestry of the Casteel family of Maryland and West Virginia is a condensation of the fenilly history as published in the
Boston Transcript, 1938, written by Attorney W. Blake Metheny, of Preston
County, West Virginia).
CAPTAIN EDMOND du CHASTEL de BLANGERVAL, member of a distinguished Flemish
family, was the immigrant ancestor of the Casteel family in America. He arrived in  Philadelphia and took the oath of allegiance to the
proprietor, William Penn on Septernber 10, 1683. The founder of the du Chastcl, or van der Casteel family, was Gilles du Chastel, conseiller to Lous, Count of Flandcrs. Gilles died in 1493 [1403?].
     Captain Edmond du Chastel appears to have married Christian Boude or
Boone in 1693.  She was the daughter of a Swedish immigrant.
     Captain Chastel became a wealthy merchant in Philadelphia. He also
engaged in the lucrative business of privateering and during Queen Anne's War in 1707, and was given command of the sloop "Resolution", under letters of
marque to prey upon French and Spanish commerce. By his will, "proved" at
Philadelphia March 25, 1712-13, Captain du Chastel left all his property to
his widow, Christian. Her will, proved Nevember 25, 1714, devised property
to her sons, Samuel and Edmund Castell, and to ber daughter, Christian, who
married James Allen.
EDMUND CASTEEL, son of the Captain, moved from Philadelphia to Piscataway
Creek in Prince George's County, Maryland.  In 1713 he therc surveyed
"Casteel," 300 acres, which he patented Decernber 10, 1715. Two of the
children of Edmund and Johanna Casteel were  Edmund 3d  and Meshack Casteel.
EDMUND CASTEEL 3d, of Casteel plantation, Piscataway Parish, left a will,
proved March 24, 1772, by which he bequeathed his estate to his widow,
Rebecca Casteel, and to their children, Shadrack, Abednego, Francis, Lucy
(Athey), and Kezia (Mitchell).
SHADRACH   CASTEEL   moved to Prince George's County prior to 1773 to
Flintstone Creek, in Bedford County, Pennsyivania. He died there and by his
will, proved December 10,  l795, left his farm to his son, Archibald. The
will refers to his wife, Laurena Casteel. and to their children, Thomas,
Archibald, Ezedock, Jesse and Elizabeth (Whitecar).
Our Garrett County pioneer, Thomas Casteel,  probably moved from Bedford
County to the Blooming Rose neighborhood in what was then Allegany County, Maryland, about the time of the death of his father in 1795.
ARMS AND CREST
The Flemish  form of our modern name Casteel is "van den Casteel", and the
French is "du Chastel" or "du Chatel,", meaning "of the Castle." The ARMS
of the du Chastel de Blangerval family are:  Azure, a chevron between three
crosses croslct fitchy, or. CREST- A castle with three towers, domed and
Avaned; that of the center and higher than the others.

Two years later in May and June of 1794 he was sent to the frontiers of Lincoln Co. to guard against Indians and for two months of service he was paid a sum slightly more than $10 as compensation. The nuncupative will of James was proved, December 22, 1805 in Madison Co., Ky. The will was committed to writing by James Colyer, Jr. and showed money deposited for the benefit of his children. He may have been the father of Rev. Stephen Collier and Rev. Richard Collier,, ministers in the Baptist Church, who were intimate friends and close relatives of Mrs. Hart's (author of Richard Calloway Family, Kansas City Library) family. She was never able to establish for sure in Stephen and Richard were James' sons and therefore cousins of he grandfather, John Colyer, Jr. but they often visited their family.

Occupation: Baptist Minister
Census: 1850 Pulaski Co. KY AHO Humphrey/ Mary Colyer

Possibly well-known minister.

History of Kentucky Baptists, pg. 620 says:

"RICHARD COLLIER was the most distinguished preacher in this fraternity, and was, for about fifty years, a very useful minister in old Cumberland River Assoc. He was born in East Tennessee, about the year 1783, and migrated to Pulaski Co., Ky. while a young man. Soon after his settling in Kentucky, he commenced exhorting, and was ordained to the ministry, at Mt. Pleasant church in Pulaski Co., about 1811, by Elijah Barnes, and, probably Stephen Collier, who was his first cousin. He was a moderate preacher, but a zealous, faithful laborer; and he did much in building up the early churches in Pulaski Co. His popularity was evidenced in his being chosen Moderator of Cumberland River Association, about 20 years. He was also Moderator of the body now under consideration, at its first session. He rested from his labors in April, 1865."

Quote from Pulaski County Cemetery Record Book (BiCentennial Edition 1776-1976) "Joined Baptist Church 1804. Lived member of same for 60 years. Was Minister of gospel 54 years. Age about 86 years."

Revolutionary War soldier. Enlisted 9-4-1791 in the Virginia Continental Line.
Fought at Valley Forge, Braddock's Defeat. Private, Virginia 7th Regiment.

Fought in Capt. Thomas Hill's Co., 7th Virginia Regiment under the command of Col. McClenahan, Revolutionary War.

"He enlisted February 13, 1777 to serve for three years or until the end of the War. His name is borne on the rolls to November, 1779, which later contained no further information relative to his service." Signed by Brigadier General Wahl, Acting Adj. General.

The part of the Revolutionary War about which John Collier spoke most frequently to his children and grandchildren was the terrible winter at Valley Forge, where he was a private in the 7th Virginia Regiment (Capt. Thomas Hill) The following is quoted along the line of this matter from "Valley Forge" (1910) by Rev. James W. Riddle, of Philadelphia:
"The troops arrived at Valley Forge, twenty-one miles from Philadelphia, December 19, 1777 with nothing but tents to withstand the rigors of a very severe winter. The soldiers were at once put to work to build log huts, 14 X 16 feet. Each hut accomodated twelve privates. Officers were not so crowded. The huts were laid out in streets. Straw supported by poles was used for roofs. Straw also was used for bedding for the soldier's bunks.
At first 11,089 men were encamped at Valley Forge. Camp fever broke out. Small-pox became epidemic. Sickness and death and desertion reduced the number to 5,012.
June 18, 1778 the men heard the British were evacuating Philadelphia. Washington broke camp and pushed toward Philadelphia, arriving there as the last of the British were crossing the Delaware. June 28, 1778 Washington and his men attacked Clinton at Monmouth in New Jersey.
Whenever John Collier noticed that his children or grandchildren showed the least indication of wastefulness, he at once would reprimand them, telling them of the suffering at Valley Forge, how he had seen soldiers fight for a kernel of corn; how he and others lacked shoes and sox to keep their feet warm, and as they walked in the snow, would leave the marks of blood from their tender, frost-bitten feet; how some of the soldiers had so little clothing that, when they stepped out of their huts, they had to throw their bedding around them. He well remembered Baron VonSteuben, whose striking personality made an indeliable impression upon all the privates. VonSteuben spoke English only brokenly, but he spoke it or some other language very forcibly. No one could misunderstand his meaning, for his adjectives were strong and pointed. He saw the men hungry, illy clothed. suffering every privation, yet most of them were unwilling to leave and give up the cause of independence so dear to them. Nearby in Philadlephia, where the British and their American Tory friends were stationed, there was plenty of food, plenty of clothing, there was dancing and music and happy times for all, while in this cold and isolated spot a few men were trying to achieve independence for a forlorn cause. While VonSteuben regarded them with admiration and said no cause could fail with such men as that, he yet saw the imperative need of better drilled soldiers and better guns, and he did his part to that end; so well indeed did he aid that Congress recognized his efforts and gave him vast land grants in his old age.
Although the services of John Collier in the war, as shown on old Revolutionary rolls, appears to be limited to two years and nine months, unquestionabley it covered a period much longer than that, extending indeed to the very close of the struggle. Several times he was wounded. Some of the bullets he carried in his body to the grave. Other bullets were placed in the coffin when he was buried. He was present at the Battle of the Brandywine and also at Monmouth, N.J., besides various other battles, the names of which are not now known. One of the stories he told his grandchildren was that, when two warring armies were lying on opposite sides of a river (presumably the Delaware) he and some other soldiers floated down the river on driftwood in such a manner as to draw near the opposite shore, where they took possession of a boatload of provisions belonging to the enemy. Using great caution, they managed to work the boat over to the American side, where their comrades were in great need of supplies. Once in battle he was struck by a bullet that he at first thought had finished him. When he recovered from the shock and hunted out the damage, he found that the bullet had struck squarely on the front of the large silver coin that he wore as a top botton on the fly of his trousers. there was no damage beyond the heavy blow. He told his children that he was present at the dissolution of the army. He recalled how the veterans showed very deep emotion. Their tears run freely down over unshaved faced to lodge on ragged, dirty shirts.
(Story continued under Grizelda's notes)
After his discharge from the Army at the close of the Revolutionary War, John attempted to find his wife and children. He joined a group of discharged soldiers who made their way over the Alleghanies and then down the Ohio River by boat to Kentucky. There he fell ill and for some time he was in a serious condition at Bryant's Station (near the present site of Lexington). On his recovery he started back along the Boone trail, to join his family in Powell's Valley. Meanwhile some traveler from Kentucky had returned to Virginia and en route had stopped to tell Grizelda that her husband was nigh unto deather at Bryant's Station. Hastily she put her children out among neighbors and joined a group of armed emigrants going into Kentucky by a different road. When she finally reached Bryant's Station, it was only to be told that her husband had recovered and started for Powell's Valley. She was obliged to remain at Bryant's Station nearly three months before she found an opportunity to join an armed party going back over the dangerous road to her starting point. The husband and wife were finally reunited. For some years after the War they lived in Virginia, where their son Charles was born in 1786. Shortly after this they moved to Kentucky and settled in what is now Rockcastle County. From there he went north in 1791 as a volunteer in Indian warfare.
It was a proof of the patriotism of John Collier that, when almost fifty years of age, he left his Kentucky home to again aid his country as a soldier. In 1791 he served as a sergeant in Capt. Jacob Tipton's Co., Col. William Darke's First Regiment of U. S. Levies, in General St. Clair's army and took part in the battle of St. Clair's Defeat.(Many more details of the battle and John's "after-the-war" life are told in the Calloway publication.)
By way of explanation, Mrs. A. E. Hart, complier of "The Calloway Family of Virginia" states: "My mother stated that her grandmother (Grizelda Taylor Colyer) said that she was married at Belle Haven in the Episcopal Church". Many details of the wedding day are in the article also.


Pension File is recorded....
Volume 34, Abstracts of Revolutionary War Pension Applications, Page 97 (excerpt follows)

(W8634, Pa and Va service and agency. Cert. issued 4 Sept 1791, 7 Apr 1814, 27 Aug. 1821 at $8 per mo. )
He was granted a pension 4 Sept. 1791 for service as Sgt. under Capt. James Tipton in Col. Wm. Darke's 1st Reg. of U. S. Levies in 1791; he was in the battle of St. Clair's defeat and served against the Indians in 1790.
This is to certify that it appears from a list in this office of such officers and soldiers of the Virginia Continental Line, during the Revolutionary War as settled their accounts and received certificates for the balance of their full pay, according to the Act of Assembly passed the November session 1781, that a certificate issued on the 2nd day of Aug 1782, in the name of John Collier, as a soldier of infantry; for lb.12.0.0, which cert. that appears to have been delivered to John Shackleford and was given for services prior to Jan 1, 1782 (p. 110)
Given under my hand at the Auditor's office, Richmond, Nov. 22 1844.

(Another certificate was issued 21 Feb. 1783 to John Collier, sol. of Infantry (see Rev. War records, Vol. 1, Brumbaugh, 1936 Invalid Pensioners, 1835, gives him as a soldier in the Virginia line (res. in Va.)

From John Beardsley - World Connect:

John Collier was a large man, around 180 pounds. He had a good education, and was a Whig. He was a Sergeant in the revolution in Capt. Jacob Lipton's Company of the Virginia Line. "A tradition has it that he was at St. Clair's (?) defeat and was wounded. He crawled off into the wilderness and saved his life by killing a rattlesnake and eating it and dressing his wounds with whisky
from a canteen that was in the family until destroyed by fire in 1888. It is also related that he made it a point to never give anything away that he did not wish himself." - Marietta D. Beardsley
The DAR has him born in 1744.

Father: Robert Meredith; Mother: Unknown; Spouse: Margaret


Meredith is an old Virginia name, and in Wales the family, of which the Virginia branch is an offshoot, claims descent from Eunydd Gwerengwy, a chieftain of North Wales and head of one of the fifteen tribes.  Rowland Meredith of "Alington" who lived early in the fifteenth century, was one of the first to assume the name.

Julian, Walter and Philip Meredith were in Virginia in 1635, and there was a land grant to Thomas in New Kent Co. in 1656 and in Lancaster Co. to John in 1652.
