  • 3i. William Castleberry: b 1737, d. in Jackson County, GA Jul 1813 was the oldest son of William and Margaret; fought against the Regulators at the Battle of Alamauc in 1771. He m. (1)Sarah Martin and, after her death, m. (2)Lucretia unknown. His will was probated in Jackson County, GA, in 1813 before William Nesbit (the half-brother of Elizabeth Carroll). He is probably the grandfather of James Castleberry. His first wife, Sarah Martin, was daughter of Ralph Martin of Londoun County, VA; This William bought land in Richmond County, VA, in 1769 (north side of Germany Creek). He had three children, according to the land grant. His will in 1813 was witnessed by Odean, probably a son, and by Mark, probably a nephew raised by William after Mark's father, John, was killed by Tories. This will was probated in Jackson County, GA, before Justice of the Peace William Nesbit, the half-brother of Elizabeth Carroll (wife of James Castleberry).


  1. Lucretia Castleberry's maiden name is unknown. She was born in 1775 and died after 1850 in McNairy County, TN. She married William Castleberry ca 1800 and was his second wife. He died in Jackson County, GA, in 1813 at the age of 76. Not long after his death Lucretia and her children migrated to Lawrence County, AL, which is in the north central part of the state. She is listed there in the 1820 census with six children in her household, four males and two females. Four of these were: Odum b. ca 1800, d. ca 1838, Mark b. 1803 d. ?, Lucretia b. 1811 d. ?, and Issac b. 1814 d. ?. Living near by Lucretia and her family in 1820 is William Castleberry with a wife and three children, two males and one female. This William may be the brother of James Castleberry [1]. If so he would be Lucretia' step grandson. He undoubtly had quite a lot to do with Lucretia' move to Lawrence County, AL, having arrived earlier or perhaps migrating from Georgia with her.


William and Sarah were wed in 1755.
