GREETINGS:
THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPLY TO MY QUERY. UNFORTUNATELY I HAVE VERY LITTLE INFORMATION ON THIS FAMILY AND AM IN NEED OF ANYTHING I CAN GET.
I AM RELATED TO THE CASTER FAMILY THROUGH THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE MCCANDLESS FAMILY. ELI MCCANDLESS (SON OF JOHN MCCANDLESS AND JANE MASON) MARRIED SINA (CINA) CASTER (KASTER) IN HARDIN CO., KY. CINA WAS THE DAUGHTER OF CONRAD CASTER AND CINA HARRIS. ELI AND CINA MCCANDLESS HAD A SON NAMED CONRAD W. F. MCCANDLESS WHO WAS NAMED AFTER CINA'S FATHER CONRAD CASTER.
IN HARDIN CO., KY. I HAVE FOUND REFERENCES TO A WILL OR PROBATE RECORDS OF CONRAD CASTER WHO DIED PRIOR TO 1850. LISTED AS ONE OF THE CHILDREN WAS A CINA MCCANDLESS. I DO NOT HAVE A COPY OF ANY OF THESE RECORDS AND WOULD LIKE COPIES OR TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THE WILL SAID.
IF I CAN BE OF ANY HELP I WILL BE WILLING TO SHARE THE INFORMATION I HAVE ON THE FAMILY OF ELI AND CINA CASTER MCCANDLESS AND THEIR MOVE TO NORTHEAST ARKANSAS BETWEEN 1850 AND 1860.
ANY HELP THAT CAN BE GIVEN WOULD BE APPRECIATED TREMENDOUSLY.
THANKS!
DAVE
