  • Notes 


    • His will proved Apr. 17, 1748, and recorded in Philadelphia, Will Book 6, page 246, #I85. It provided for his mother Catrin who was still living "1/3 of his wheat, ray, indencorn, and buckwheat, and 1/2 of ye seyder." His children were all still minors at the time of his death. The oldest, Richard, to have the lands and tenaments, the other sons six pounds each and be 'put to traids when seventeen years old', daughters also to receive six pounds each. For his widow "and she keeps unmarried shall have her mentenence and a room in ye house."

      Paul used the spelling Castleberry, but his son reverted back to Casselberry. He is found on the 1734 tax list for Providence Twp. , the same neighborhood as brother Derrick and mother Catherine. Paul was baptized Sept. 1742 at St. Peters of the Great Valley, a church served by the rector of St. James Episcopal, per Mr. Bean, Historian of that church. He was one of the signers of a petition sent to England in 1736 requesting a minister from the Society for Propagating of the Gospel. There is also an account of his baptism at the Great Valley Baptist Church. His wife's step-mother Alse (Withers) Addams was a member of that Baptist church. Paul and Margaret had children Richard, [BO:Jacob:BO], Benjamin, Catrin, Elizabeth, and Ann. Benjamin and Richard served in the Revolution.
