Transcribed Bible Pages
of William Casto (1717-1778)

The copy of the bible pages which I have has this typed note at the bottom:  "The original bible is now owned by David Casto, of Redwood City, Calif.  It was handed down from Thomas Johnson Casto (son of Firmon) to his step-son John Wheaton Wiltsie (son of Ida Susie Wheaton by her first husband, General Lewis Wiltsie).  Young John took the name Casto after his mother's marriage to Thomas.  Late in life, in 1940, John married Lura Morgonson, a widow with two sons; he died in 1950.  Lura, living temporarily in Long Beach, Calif., in 1950, was contacted by David when he noticed her name (Casto) in the phone book; she offered him the bible to make it available to those of more direct Casto lineage.

The bible contains these names:
