Franklin James Casteel

I am looking for information regarding Franklin James or James Franklin Casteel. It is said that he served in Ballinger's Camden County VMM. He was born in 1834 in Tennessee. It is believed he died of snake bite about 1900 possibly in Oklahoma.

Also his father Joseph Marion Casteel is said to have served in the State Militia in Camden County.

Neither received a pension however.
