  • Notes 
    • Royal Chastain (I) was born ca. 1792 in South Carolina. He was a miller by trade. It is not known what his wife's name was. Some researchers have thought he married first to Nancy _____ (born 1800 in Kentucky). Royal Chastain was located in Lincoln County, Tennessee, in the 1820 census and in the same county in the 1840 census. There is a marriage record in Rhea County, Tennessee, of Royal Chastain to Eleanor Hellems, 19 October 1838. In the 1850 census of Bledsoe County, Tennessee, Royal Chastain (age 58) is listed with Nancy (age 40), Royal (age 20), John (age 17), and Margaret C. Mathis (age 16). She may have been his third wife. He is not listed in Byron Sistler's Index to the 1860 Census of Tennessee. Elijah Leander Chastain stated: "Upon the death of Royal's first wife, the children were scattered and had to look out for themselves as he became unsettled. Elijah went to Georgia; William went to Illinois; and Stephen to Arkansas." By process of elimination and circumstance, it seems that Royal could be the male inhabitant of Rev. James Chastain's home in the 1800 and 1810 censuses whose birth was post 1790. Abraham Chastain (b. circa 1765-70) is also a potential candidate for his father. Abraham was not noted with a son of Royal's age but he was not recorded on the census records in 1800 and 1810, he could have had a child born in the early 1790's.
