Nancy (Hardesty) Casteel died February 1860 in Ringgold County, Iowa. This information was located in the Mortality Index of 1860. I have seen many posts and online family trees that show Isom as the son of Robert and Phoebe (Harty) Casteel; however, I believe that he was the son of John and Nancy (Cooper) Casteel. I support this with the facts that I have been able to document for Isom. Isom was in Fountain County and Delaware County, Indiana at the same time that John was there. His location in Iowa in 1850 was directly across the state line from where John died.

The only connection that I see with the Shipley surname is through Nancy Casteel Zook's granddaughter who married Dwight Merle Shipley. Since I do not follow the Robert and Phoebe Casteel connection (I think the John and Nancy connection is stronger), I may be missing an earlier connection with the Casteels.
