I would very much like to get in touch with T. Casteel as we have many family names in common. Our family also came from Sagul or as we called it Segenthau.

This is pretty interesting...I actually found this blog from a google image search by googling my name, I'm a photographer so was just curious what would be at the top of the search and I saw a photo from your blog at some point in the search and clicked on it, read a few of the posts. My family also immigrated from Romania, as well as Austria and their last name while still in Europe was Stoss, but changed it to Stosz when they came to the US sometime around WWII. I believe they came to New York first but eventually settled in Amherst, Massachusetts where they started a farm with a lot of land which is now broken up into plots where my grand parents, uncles and other extended families have built homes. I just think it's interesting that your ancestors that you have written about here also immigrated from the same region and same time and seemed to have changed their names to Stosz from Stoss upon immigrating. Curious if it is the same family as mine.
