Hello, we are researching our Castleton family history and have run across the name Shively. We are stuck and unsure now if this was a first or last name in our family... Just hoping that someone may find something in this post that sounds familiar... We trying to trace Shively, Castleton, Cox, Brown link really unsure on these. Our ancestor went by the name of Pearl A. Castleton or Pierre Castleton or P. A. Castleton, possibly born in France family from England. His father may have been Shively Castleton or possible his fathers last name was Shively. His mother is listed as Martha. we are not sure if Castleton is maiden or married name. He did have a brother Arthur and sister Hila Arella; After the parents deaths she may have been raised by a family with the last name of Crabtree or Greentree in Pagosa Springs, CO. At one point they are said to have lived on a ranch in Edith CO. He married Vada Nolan and is said to have been fluent in different languages and played the piano. He moved to New Orleans and the other parts of La married had children and at one time lived in Gray, Texas; but the last known of him was 1932 in Louisiana. . Any information would be appreciated.

Hi, Thank you for your response. He is quite the mystery, but according to our notes his birthday may have been September 1882; Some of our records indicate that he was born in Paris, France and on one note we have show his parents possibly coming from London and Liverpool, England, but another possibility is that they also were born in Paris, France.
We even thought that maybe his mother was actually Martha Castleton married to a surname Shively, another possible road to travel down. But, he does list his father as Shively Castleton. Please let me know if you run across anything.

Agreed. For the original posting (but note that he has not made any further posts since 1999!)

Marriage:
28 Aug 1910, St. Matthew's Church, Fulham, London, England
William Edwards Castleton, 23, of Wandsworth Bridge Road, s/o George Alexander Castleton
Rose Emma Jane Gower, 25, of Wandsworth Bridge Road, d/o William James Gower (dec'd)

Birth:
William Edward Castleton, 20 Oct 1886, Lambeth, London, England

Baptised 31 Aug 1890 at St. Mary's Church, Lambeth, London, England
William Edwards Castleton, s/o George Alexander & Mary Ann (Wools), of Jonathan Street, Lambeth.
(siblings Edith Margaret, George Thomas, Louisa also baptised)

Later of Barton Street, East Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Married Alice Bumby in 1925.

So he was definitely English, not Welsh!

But ... is this the same person as the one in your tree????
