Castlewood, Virginia Historical Events

Early 1800's
Jacob "The Hunter" Cassel, Sr.
Jacob Cassel/Castle, had at least eight wives all Cherokee except Sowege, who was his first wife. Sowege was a Shawnee Indian from PA and the mother of his first born Jacob, Jr.. Jacob was known as "The Hunter". He was one of the Earliest Pioneers in Southwest Virginia and the area called Castlewoods, VA is named for him. During the French and Indian War, Jacob was accused of Treason by siding with the Indians, but he was acquitted, though accounts say it was probablly true since he had strong ties to the Cherokee and Shawnee Tribes. Jacob is mentioned in the Chronicles of Southwest, VA as well as his son Jacob, Jr.
