About James Chastain

Peter, Jr. was born in the Virginia Colony about 1707. Peter is the English form of the French Pierre. He was the son of Pierre and his second wife, Anne Soblet. Pierre's first wife died shortly after arriving in the new world. Peter inherited his father's home and 111 acres of land in 1728. However, Peter mortgaged the property the next year to cover some debts and subsequently deeded the land to the mortgager. Later, he owned a different tract of 400 acres. Peter apparently lived his entire life in Virginia.

His last child was born in 1753, so he lived until at least then.

I think there may be a MISSING Pierre Chastain here- there should be another generation, presumably with the same name. There is a 25-year age gap between this man and his supposed wife, and he was supposedly 49 when his son was born. This does not compute.
Pierre Jr, evidently had quite a gambling problem. He once lost his house gambling.
