I am a student trying to research my family history. My deceased grandfather was Ernest O. Casto, who married Mary Ayers. His father was William Monroe Casto, who married Mary Metilda Westfall.Most of the family was from the Jackson Co. West Virginia area. Now many of my immediate family resides in Wood County, WV, around Parkersburg. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ruby,
My family today is in the Parkersburg/Rockport areas in Wood COunty, WV. In the past I believe them to be more from the Jackson County and ripley/ravenswood areas. But I know we have family pretty much everywhere, so I wouldn't just naroow it down to one location!
