About Mary Chastain

John married Mary O'Bryan (ca 1765-ca 1797) from Ireland around 1763, and they had 11 children who survived to adulthood. After Mary O'Bryan died, John married Mary Robertson (ca 1759-1847).

John died in Pendleton District (later Pickens County), South Carolina in 1805. According to PCD, he is buried next to his first wife, Mary O'Bryan. The site is west of Greenville, Couth Carolina, three miles south of Table Rock and two miles north of Pumpkintown. Their graves are 200 yards west of the mill on Carricks Creek which flows south into the Oolenoy River.

In the early nineteenth century, many of John's descendents and collateral relatives occupied the Cherokee lands of North Georgia, abandoned when the Cherokees were forced to march to Oklahoma. There has been a high concentration of Chastains in this area since that time.
