Notes
a. Note:   BRADLEY JOHN CASTLE is the son of THOMAS ALFRED CASTLE and LOUISA JANE RUSSELL. THOMAS ALFRRED CASTLE is the son of WILLIAM ALFRED CASTLE and his wife, ELIZABETH "BETHENA" CARTER/CARTER/MCCARTY. ZACHARIAH CASTLE was born to JACOB CASTLE JR. and his wife, MARY SHANE, at Russell County, Virginia, in 1797. ZACHARIAH was one-half Pekowi Shawnee - Wyandot - Metis, thus making WILLIAM one-quarter Pekowi Shawnee - Wyandot Metis, thus making THOMAS ALFRED CASLTE one eighth Pekowi Shawnee-Wyandot Metis, thus making BRADLEY JOHN CASTLE one-sixteenth Pekowi Shawnee - Wyandot Metis. It is also possible that Louisa Jane Russell carried Native American blood in her family tree.
Bradley J. Castle, was a highly respected man who lived most of his life on a farm in Stickleyville, Lee County, Virginia. He raised tobacco, corn, a large vegetable garden, a few cows, hogs, chickens and mules. He raised a family of seven children and his granddaughter, Brenda Keck Reed (researcher of this genealogy). During the depression he owned and operated a General Store along the main highway above his farm. Unfortunately his generosity of spirit soon resulted in his closing his store as he would never pursue anyone who could not afford to pay up on their bills. In his later years he experienced a religious conversion and joined the Mountain View Baptist Church where he regularly prayed for his children's peace and happiness. He was a decorated Army veteran in World War I and a member of the American Legion in Pennington Gap. He had a gift for story telling and regaled his granddaughter, Brenda, with Irishman's tales every evening before bedtime. He was known as a hard worker and a man of his word. He had spirit of generosity and often extended a helping hand to his neighbors who may have fallen on hard times. He enjoyed taking an occasional break to sit around the wood stove at Stout's Store and "swap lies" with his cronies. As his granddaughter, I can tell you one thing for sure -- Brad Castle was a good, decent and fair man.
Brad is believed to be a direct descendant of Jacob Castle the first white man to settle in Castles Woods in Russell County, Virginia in the mid-1700's. His grand father, William Castle, lived in Russell County and Scott County during his lifetime. His father, Alford Castle, spent most of his life in Scott County, Virginia. Brad lived with his mother and father in early childhood on a farm near Pattonsville in Powell Valley, Scott County, Virginia. When his father married secondly to Martha Tipton, he lived with various other family members.
Scott County Cemetery Records record that Brad's mother, Louisa Russell Castle, died of typhoid on September 16, 1896. Louisa left Alford with three small children to raise: Ida, age eight; Allie, age five; and Bradley, age four.
The first record found for Bradley Castle is in the 1900 Census Records for Scott County, Virginia. Bradley is the youngest of three children of Alfred Castle, a widower. According to this record Bradley was born November 1892 in Virginia. His father, Alford Castle, was born May 1862 in Virginia, with parents born in Virginia. His sister, Ida, was twelve years old, born December 1889 in Virginia; and sister Allie was nine years old, born June 1892 in Virginia. On 1 June 1900 as ALFERD CASTLE, Thomas Alfred Castle and his family were enumerated at the Powell District, Scott County, Virginia at Household #7/7. ALFERD CASTLE was born May 1862 in Virginia with parents born in Virginia, age 38, a widower. Daughter, IDA CASTLE, was age 12, born December 1887, born in Virginia, parents both born in Virginia; Daughter ALLIE CASTLE, age 9, born June 1891, Virginia; son BRADLEY CASTLE, age 7, born November 1892 in Virginia.
On January 26, 1901 Alford Castle married for a second time. According to family legend Albord's second wife, Martha Tipton, did not want to see to the three motherless children of Louisa Castle and "put the children out." Martha Tipton earned a reputation as being a hard task-maker and mean to her step-children. Alford's unwillingness or inability to stand up to Martha earned him the enmity of his son, Bradley.
Census records confirm that young Bradley did not live with his father, Alford and his wife Martha in 1910. On 28 April 1910 Bradley James Castle was enumerated at Rocky Station District in Lee County, Virginia with his cousin William Castle. Bradley was age fifteen; he and his parents were shown as being born in Virginia. He worked as a farm laborer and could read and write. He lived with William and his five motherless children: Allie M., Rosie B., Lawrence H., Christie A., and Bonnie A.
In 1916 Brad Castle, guitar in hand, went "courting" Pearl Ward who lived up Dry Creek with her father, John E. Ward and step-mother, Louelia Satterfield. The legend is that he walked up the path to her house strumming his guitar and singing to Pearl. On October 14, 1916 Pearl and Brad were married in Lee County, Virginia. On 5 June 1917 Brad Castle registered for the draft in the United States Army and was shipped sometime later to France to fight the Germans in the trenches during World War I. After being injured from mustard gas, Brad returned to Lee County where he and Pearl settled down and raised seven children and a granddaughter. On 8 February 1918 Bradley and Pearl welcomed their first-born child, James Bradley Castle, into the world -- just eight months after Brad had registered to serve in the war.
