Descendants of Pierre Chastain:
Children of Valentine Chastain and Mary Robbins are:
+ 54 i. Rebecca7 Chastain, born Abt. 1794 in Franklin County, Virginia; died Bet. 1870 - 1871 in Scott County, Indiana, USA.
55 ii. Martin Chastain, born Abt. 1795 in Franklin Co., Virginia, USA; died September 17, 1845 in Scott Co., Indiana.
56 iii. Frances ? Chastain, born Abt. 1796.
Frances is marked as dead in Church Book ending January 1845.
57 iv. Harmon Chastain, born Abt. 1798 in Franklin County, Virginia; died Abt. 1877 in Scott County, Indiana.
58 v. Daughter Chastain, born Bet. 1800 - 1805.
Probably born circa 1800 to 1805. Tradition in Scott County says that Valentine Chastain had a daughter named Sarah Jane. This is probably Sary Shasteen who died in 1847 and is buried at Scaffold Lick, near the road in what seems to be a grave for for a fully grown person.
59 vi. Elizabeth Chastain, born Abt. 1801 in Virginia; died November 20, 1878 in Scott County, Indiana, USA. She married Nathaniel Robbins November 19, 1826; died 1874. He was Church Clerk at Scaffold Lick from July 1830 to March 1847.
60 vii. Mary Chastain, born Abt. 1806 in Kentucky, USA; died Abt. 1838 in Scott County, Indiana, USA. She married Nathaniel Chastain March 16, 1825.
Valentine Chastain performed the marriage between Mary and Nathaniel.. Nathaniel Chastain was probably a son of John and Anner Chastain despite being being listed as an heir of Valentine in 1847. This is based partly on the fact that Anner Chastain was living with Nathaniel in 1850. He is probably named as an heir of Valentine for the estate rights of his children by Mary.
+ 61 viii. Valentine Jr. Chastain, born April 03, 1808 in Shelby County, Kentucky; died Abt. 1866 in Scott County, Indiana, USA.

Current thought is that Monmouth County, New Jersey may have been mistakingly recorded as Monmouthshire, Wales in many, many references.

In Reply to: VALENTINE ROBBINS IN WASHINGTON CO, IN. by Marie Bayles of 3206
The parents of Valentine Robbins (1813-1849) were reportedly Richard Robbins (c1790-betw. 1850-58) and Rebecca ("Betsy") Chastain (c1794-c1871). Richard, in turn, was the son of Richard and Catherine Robbins, and Richard (Sr.) is said to be the son of Nathaniel and Ann Robbins. Little is documented so far. Nathaniel was born c1740, prob. in Monmouthshire, Wales and died c1800, prob. in Shelby Co., Kentucky. He came as a child with his family to the Rowan/Guilford/Randolph Co., North Carolina area; moved to the Franklin & Montgomery Co., Virginia area, and then on to Shelby Co., Kentucky. Other Robbins lived in Henry Co., Kentucky; many went on to Decatur, Jennings, Scott, and Washington counties, Indiana. Nathaniel, by the way, was a brother of Jacob Robbins, who married Mary (said to be Wells, but, again, unproven).

In Reply to: Sylvester Robbins/ Scott Co., IN/ 1859 by Donna Forney Clark of 4099
My information on Sylvester (Robbins), albeit of uncertain documentation, is that he was the son of William Martin Robbins and Nancy Chasteen. William Martin (1821-aft. 1880) was the son of Richard Robbins Jr. (c1790-betw. 1850/1858) and Rebecca Chastain. Richard Jr. was the son of Richard Robbins Sr. (c. 1760 in Guilford (now Randolph) Co., NC d. after 1814 in Kentucky) and Catherine or Mary [--?--]. Rebecca Chastain was the daughter of Valentine Chastain (c1768-1843) and Mary Robbins (c1774-1844) - this Mary was the daughter of Jacob and Mary [--?--] Robbins. Richard Sr. may have been (documentation is lacking here), the son of Nathaniel and Ann Robbins.
Rebecca Chastain, b. abt 1795, was the daughter of Valentine Chastain and Mary Robbins.
