Susan (Underwood) Casteel of Macoupin Co., TN

Finally, I located an obituary for  Susan Underwood Casteel, wife of James M. Casteel, daughter of Benjamin and Mary Underwood.  Found in the historic newspapers collection, this article gives us a few new pieces information.  From census records, we knew she was born in May 1816 in Tennessee, but now we have a more specific date and the county in TN where her she was born.
