      James Newel to Susan Casto, 6/28/1832 --a second marriage????

      John A House: 'Pioneers of Jackson County':
      pg 136
      William Casto married Susie Rollins, a daugher of Elijah J Rollins. He lived at the first place up Tug Fork. William Casto was found dead in the woods, having been shot.
      The body was lying by a log, and the supposition was that he had been sitting on the log, imitating the call of the wild turkey, to attract the attention of those birds, when some other hunter, hearing him and not fairly seeing him, mistook him for a turkey and shot him, He lived where Holly Staats does now.
      He probably moved out to Mill Creek not long after 1816, and was from Buckhannon River settlement.
      He left five children, one of whom, John Casto, married Elizabeth Reynolds, and lived at the mouth of Bear Tree Run, in 1839. He died leaving only one child. It is said he was killed by a handspike at a logrolling.
