David D. (JDDC) Castleman Jr.

David Jr. (I am not sure if the title Jr. is appropriate in this case because as far as I have discovered his father did not have the middle initial D. and was probably named Johannes David) was a Major in the Virginia Militia in 1813 and later became Sheriff of Frederick Co., VA. He was a prominent businessman, founder and partner in the firm of McCormick & Castleman of Frederick County, Virginia.
