While searching for genealogy information, I had an
opportunity to meet a cousin online. I
latter attended a family reunion and found a connection between the Brumfield and
the Caston families.Liddie (last name
unknown) was the mother of Brumfield and Caston children. Louis Brumfield was Liddie's first husband. I have been unable to locate Louis in census records or verify when he died. According to her death certificate she was born in Mississippi and parents are unknown. Her approximate date of birth is December, 1825 from the Federal 1900 census . She is thought to have been 93 years upon her death on July 5, 1916.
