Miscellaneous Information Pertaining to this Family Group in Ohio
The Strange Estate of Johann Ulrich Albrecht - 1866 Receivables from this man's Yellowbud store list James C. Shasteen owing $13.00 and James Shasteen, Jr. owing $12.50 in notes and William Shasteen $2.95 and James Shasteen, Jr. owing $4.50 on account at the time of his death. In all likelihood, this is James b 1807 d 1866, his son James C. b 1834. But it could be Robert's brother James' son James b 1823 (although there is speculation he went on to Defiance/Henry county). All should have been in Yellowbud in 1866. The William may have been Robert's son William b 1814/1816 d 1902 or James b 1807 son William Henry Harrison Shasteen b 1841. No other likely candidates seem to be available.
