I am searching for the parents of Vincent Castle. New York census give the year of his birth as 1770 and the state as CT. I know his wife was Rebecca Fonda and I believe her to be his second wife because the info in the 1860 census would place her birth around 1793. The Fondas' were a big family here in Rennselear County so it is likely they were married here in New York. Another reason to suggest the second marriage is a reference to Vincent in the History of Rennselear County. It states that Vincent and his sons were one of the early settlers around the region of Poestenkill,N.Y. His sons names were John b.1789, Eli b.1793, Joseph b. 1802, and Simeon b. around 1810. Two daughters were named Julia and Huldah. I can't seem to find any info on Vincent prior to his arrival to N.Y. If anyone out there has anything - please help. Maybe one of the names strikes a cord, I know names flip flop in generations, Grandfather/son/Grandson etc... please help! I know alot of Castles originated from Litchfield,CT. Hopefully some can help. Thank you ahead of time for you help! Wm. David Castle
