CASTLE, and ELBERT S. CASTLE. All of their children were born in the Copper Creek area of Russell County, Virginia, where Zachariah was documented consistently from the time of their marriage. Though many of Catherine's family members moved to Lancaster County, Kentucky, Zachariah and Catherine stayed on in Russell County, Virginia.
In 1813 ZACHARIAH CASTLE first appeared on the Personal Property Tax List for Russell County, Virginia, indicating that he had attained age 16 and was now an individual Tithe, making the most accurate date for his birth as 1797.
