Decendants Report
Descendents of Richard Castree

Richard Castree is my G3 Grandfather on my mother's side of the family. My mother's father was John F. Castree.

This descendents report details 8 generations of the direct descendents of Richard Castree (abt 1791-?). Richard was born and raised in Ireland and was married to Margaret Stonay Buchanan. Richard and his wife came to the United States when their first child was just a baby.

Many thanks to Alec Sutherland for his research on the Castree family tree. And I would also like to thank William Knox for additional details on this interesting line. It turns out that there were some several successful NYC bankers in this line.
