Six Degrees of Separation Caston & Brumfield Families Part2


Where's the proof?  The Census


I have been searching for information to support the early relationship of the Caston and Brumfield families. Liddie born in 1825 was the mother of Caston and Brumfield children. Her first husband was Louis Brumfield and second Calvin Caston. What documents are available substantiate the whole story of this blended family? The 1870 census is the first census that freeman or former slaves are listed. In the 1870 census, all of the children of Liddie and Calvin surname are listed as Caston. An additional child not previously mentioned in the blog Elvira Caston, is also listed in this census. She may have been a Brumfield.
