Indiana Chastains

Pierre Chastain settled in Virginia Colony in 1700, and for much of the next century Virginia was home to most American Chastains. About the time of the American Revolution, the Chastain families began migrating, and by 1840 there were only two families left in Virginia.

They did not spread themselves evenly among the states. Georgia, Indiana, and South Carolina were important Chastain states early on. After the initial migration, Indiana contained the second largest concentration of Chastains after Georgia.

Some notable Indiana Chastains include:

Burrell Chastain, restaurateur
David Chasteen, military
Chalmer Chastain, medical doctor
Rev. Gordon Chastain, Episcopal priest
Hollace Chastain, police officer and UFO sighter
Hollace A. Chastain, restaurateur
Jacob Chastain, church musician
Judy K. Chastain, mayor of Salem, Indiana
Katie Chastain, musician and recording artist
Lowell Burrell Chastain, genealogist
Morris "Butch" Chastain, mayor of Mitchell, Indiana
Nellotie Chastain, author
Maj. Gen. Richard Chastain, Major General
Terry Lee Chasteen, murder victim
Tom Chastain, racing enthusiast
Claude Cook, genealogist
