      A note from Shirley Chasteen at her site above reads: "I could find no proof of William and Sary as being the parents of Valentine Sr. Pierre Chastain only had three known sons, Jean Adam, Rene Sr, and Peter Jr. Both Jean (John) and Rene left wills and William was not named in either of these wills, it has always been the concensus of the researchers of this particular Chastain line, that William was a son of Peter Jr. there is no absolute proof of this because of the loss of the Buckingham Co., Va early records. Gerre Bulands reminded me that, Robert Leishman who published our book in 1996, whose wife descended from Robert Ranson Chastain, didn't even put a question mark about the link of William to Peter Jr. I will list him this way also. As further proof that William and Sary are the parents of Valentine, see p 182 "Little Otter..." They signed for them to be married.
      Sources for the infomation on William and Sary and their family came from "Little Otter to Lost River." World Family Tree Vo.l 2 "
