Thanks for the response. Actually, in 1850, James is the only child who was listed as having been born in NC, which I've always found interesting, because Elijah and Patience were married in McMinn County in 1827, and both appear to have been born in TN. Of course, it's only a hop, skip, and a jump over to NC from McMinn County. The 1860 census notes James' birthplace as TN. It's also interesting that the census-taker lists James as "farmer", not "laborer".

You have confused the two contemporary Elijah Casteels, which seems to be a common error. The Elijah Casteel who was the son of Francis and Mary Peck Casteel was married to Margaret Criss and Sally Fairchild. They were from Knox Co TN and migrated to southern Illinois. The Elijah Casteel whom I'm interested in was married to Patience Taber/Tabor and lived in McMinn County until the 1860 census, when they appear in Murray County Georgia. By 1870, Elijah is missing from the census and Patience is living with her daughter and son-in-law, the McCurdys.
