Ancestors of Plummer Emanuel Gastineau






Generation One

1. Plummer Emanuel1 Gastineau (Levi, #2]. Born 27 April 1867 in Greene County, Indiana. Married Agnes Cronin, daughter of Morgan Cronin and Johannah Hayes, 5 February 1894 in Indianapolis, Indiana [Works Progress Administration, Indiana, Index to Supplemental Records, Marriage Transcript, Marion County, Indiana, 1882-1906 (np: Indiana WPA, 1939), Bk. 4, p. 255]. Died 25 April 1928 of diabetes at St. Vincent's Hospital, Indianapolis, Indiana [Indiana Death Certificate]. Buried in St. Joseph's Cemetery, Indianapolis, Indiana (Lot 158 N. 1/2, Sec. D Vault Gr. 2].

Plummer was employed as a railroad engineer by 1896, when he resided at 840 E. Market St, Indianapolis. By 1908, he was a passenger conductor with the Indianapolis & Vincennes Railroad [Biographical Memoirs of Greene County, Indiana (Indianapolis: B.F. Bowen, 1908), p. 1172]. Later, he was a passenger conductor with the Pennsylvania Railroad and a cameo of his portrait appeared on the front of the dining car menu.

I have an unattributed clipping from an unknown Indianapolis newspaper, circa 1903:

FLEE FROM BURNING HOUSE IN "NIGHTIES"

Mrs. Gastineau and Four Sons Have Narrow Escape from Death by Fire

        Mrs. Plummer A. Gastineau and her four little sons had a narrow escape from death in flames that destroyed their home, 16 Hamilton avenue, yesterday morning.

        Gathering her little ones about her, Mrs. Gastineau barely had time to escape with her life, going to the home of a relative in her night clothes. All of their wearing apparel was burned, and the mother and the children wore borrowed clothes yesterday.

        The home was a complete wreck. The mother returned home, yesterday, and learned that the piano and a few pictures and a little bedding had been saved. Everything else was gone and the downpouring rain dripped through the charred rafters into every room in the house.

        Frank Gastineau, eight years of age, had not been well and the mother was caring for him. She fell asleep beside him. He awoke and asked for a drink. The mother smelled smoke and hurried toward the dining room. When she opened the dining room door she was met by the flames.

        Slamming the door, the mother gathered her children about her and fled.

        The watchman in the courthouse tower discovered the fire sooner than the occupants of the house, and the firemen were on the way to the fire when the mother and her children escaped.

        The loss was about $1,500 and was partially covered by insurance.

NOTE: My grandfather, Frederick Emanuel Gastineau (b. 1896) was was the next-younger son of Plummer after Frank, mentioned above. Though I've been limiting these posted lineages to my great-grandparents and earlier (in the interests of the privacy of those still living), I happen to own a really neat picture of Fred when he was about 16 years old (c.1912) and a member of one of the local sponsored football teams in Indianapolis. Fred is the glowering one sitting at the far right. (Note that the monogram on his shirt differs from all the others. All his Cronin aunts were seamstresses. . . .):

2. Levi2 Gastineau (James, #4]. Born 10 January 1833 in Greene County, Indiana.

Lasalle 11 October 1885 at Greene County, Indiana [Greene County, Indiana, Marriage records, Book M, p. 71]. (Was Mary some relation of his mother's 2nd husband, William Laselle?) In 1900 he was living in Shawswick Township, Lawrence County, Indiana.

  • George appears on the 1900 census in Shawswick Twp, Lawrence County, Indiana, ED 75, p. 4:

    He wrote a will on 10 March 1892 Greene County, Indiana [Greene County, Indiana, Will Books, Book 3, p. 217): Gastineau. 10 March 1892; recorded 13 April 1894. Wife Sarah Gastineau to have everything. Exec: Sarah Gastineau. Wits: Albert Atkinson, D.J. Terhune. The will was probated 13 April 1894 Greene County, Indiana.

  •    x. Patience Gastineau; born 18 October 1865 in Greene County, Indiana; married George Price 11 July 1887 in Greene County, Indiana [Greene County, Indiana, Marriage records, Book M, p. 291].

  • 1 xi. Plummer Emanuel Gastineau.

  •    xii. Levi Grant Gastineau; born 9 December 1868 in Greene County, Indiana; married Ida McCombs 28 March 1894 in Greene County, Indiana [Greene County, Indiana, Marriage records, Book O, p. 32]. He was known as "Grant." In 1908, he was a farmer "near Palestine," Crawford County, Illinois [Biographical Memoirs of Greene County, Indiana, p. 1172].

  •    xiii. Henry Gastineau; born 4 December 1870 in Stockton Township, Greene County, Indiana; married 1st Sarah McKig 13 April 1897 in Greene County, Indiana (her 2nd husband — see Jeremiah, above) [Greene County, Indiana, Marriage records, Bk O, p. 449.); married 2nd Nettie A. Jeffers 1902 in Greene County, Indiana [Biographical Memoirs of Greene County, Indiana, p. 1173].

    He worked on the family farm until he was 24. In 1894, he moved to Linton, where he engaged in general merchandising for two years. He was a member of the Baptist Church and was politically active, though he never held public office. He was also an active member of Woodmen of the World, Knights of Pythias, and Knights & Ladies of Honor [Biographical Memoirs of Greene County, Indiana, p. 1172-73].

    He appeared on the census of 1900 Stockton Twp, Greene County, Indiana, ED 37, p. 218:

        Gastineau, Henry, b. December 1870 Indiana (parents, b. Indiana), Capitalist, Widowed

    By 1904, he was engaged in real estate and built the "Gastineau block" on West Vincennes St., Linton. He also owned several business buildings [Biographical Memoirs of Greene County, Indiana, p. 1172-73].

  •    xiv. Rachel C. Gastineau; born 26 May 1872 in Greene County, Indiana; married John Brawand 15 August 1897 in Greene County, Indiana [Greene County, Indiana, Marriage records, Book O, p. 501].







3. Rachel2 Hatfield (George, #6]. Born 1 June 1833 in Greene County, Indiana. Married 1st Levi Gastineau (see #2]. Married 2nd William Laselle 25 September 1883 in Greene County, Indiana [Greene County, Indiana, Marriage records, Book L, p. 451]. Died 6 June 1892 in Greene County, Indiana, and was buried in Old Linton Cemetery, Linton, Greene County, Indiana [Loraine E. Kraus, Cemeteries of Western Greene County, Indiana (Decorah, IA: Amundsen Publishing Co, nd), vol. 2].

Her headstone reads: "Rachel Lasselle / 1 June 1833–6 June 1892, aged 59 yrs 5 days. Widow of Levi Gastineau, widow of Wm. Lasselle."

In the June term of court 1876, she was the defendant in a lawsuit as administratrix of the estate of her late husband, Levi Gastineau. The plaintiff, James H. Quillen, received a judgment of $40 — but I don't know for what, as the original case file is apparently missing (Greene County, Indiana, Probate order books, Book 9, p. 87].

She appeared as head of household in the 1880 census in Stockton Township, Greene County, Indiana, ED 299, p. 7:

    Gastenue, Rachel, 42 yrs, b. Indiana, Keeping House, Cannot read/write
                      Martha, dau, 22 yrs, b. Indiana
                      James, son, 20 yrs, b. Indiana, Works on farm
                      Washington, son, 20 yrs, b. Indiana, Works on farm
                      Elabeth, dau, 18 yrs, b. Indiana
                      Jerry, son, 16 yrs, b. Indiana
                      Patience, dau, 14 yrs, b. Indiana
                      Plummer M., son, 13 yrs, b. Indiana
                      Levi Grant, son, 11 yrs, b. Indiana
                      Henry, son, 9 yrs, b. Indiana
                      Rachel C., dau, 8 yrs, b. Indiana

I have not yet been able to locate a will or a probate file for Rachel, but I suspect that one exists (or used to).







Generation Three

4. James3 Gastineau (George, #8]. Born 2 December 1801 in Virginia. Married Patience Morrow (see #5), daughter of Samuel Morrow, 27 December 1821 in Pulaski County, Kentucky. Died 15 February 1880 in Greene County, Indiana. Buried in the Old German Cemetery, Linton, Greene County, Indiana.

He gave bond for his marriage to Patience Morrow, 24 December 1821; Bond: William Hubble. Consent of father, George Gastineau, and of Samuel Morrow [whom I presume to be her father, though he may not be . . .]. Witnesses: Levi Hubble, Robert W. Pall? [Ruth M. Slevin (comp), Pulaski County, Kentucky Marriage Bonds, 1787-1860 (Indianpolis: The Author, 1956), p. 68].

The marriage record is taken from the personal records kept by Rev. Malachi Cooper of Pulaski County; James appears in Cooper's list as James Gastin, which could be taken as evidence that "Gastineau" was sometimes recorded as Gaskin or Gaskins. It may also mean that the Rev. Cooper didn't know how to spell the French ending of the name, and simply stopped writing after the part he was sure of. [See below, under George Gastineau.]

James appears on the 1830 census in Lawrence County, Indiana, p. 116:

    Gastineu, James       Males: under 5 - 2                    Females: under 5 - 1
                                                  5-10 - 1                                          20-30 - 1
                                                  20-30 - 1

He appears on the 1840 census in Greene County, Indiana, p. 194:

    Gastineau, James     Males: 10-15 - 2                       Females: under 5 - 2
                                                  15-20 - 1                                        5-10 - 2
                                                  30-40 - 1                                        10-15 - 1
                                                                                                         30-40 - 1

He appears on the 1850 census in Stockton Twp, Greene County, Indiana, p. 359:

    Gastineau, James, 48 yrs, b. [?], Farmer (value of real estate = $1,500)
                       Patience, wife, 46 yrs, b. Kentucky
                       Adam, son, 20 yrs, b. Indiana
                       Polly H., 17 yrs, b. Indiana
                       Emily J., dau, 12 yrs, b. Indiana
                       Nancy, dau, 12 yrs, b. Indiana
                       Margaret, dau, 10 yrs, b. Indiana
                       Martha, dau, 7 yrs, b. Indiana

He appears on the 1860 census in Stockton Twp, Greene County, Indiana, p. 509:

    Gastinan, James, 58 yrs, b. Virginia, Farmer (real estate = $4,000; personal estate = $1,928)
                     Patience, wife, 56 yrs, b. Kentucky
                     Andrew, son, 37 yrs, b. Kentucky, School teacher
                     Margaret Ann, dau, 19 yrs, b. Indiana
                     Martha, dau, 17 yrs, b. Indiana

Finally, he appears on the 1870 census in Stockton Twp, Greene County, Indiana, p. 438:

    Gastinean, James    68 yrs, b. Virginia, Retired Farmer (real estate = $500; personal estate = $3,000)
                       Patience, wife, 66 yrs, b. Kentucky

James wrote a will on 30 July 1877 in Greene County, Indiana [Greene County, Indiana, Will Books, Book 2, pp. 449-501): "Gastineau. 30 July 1877; recorded 21 February 1880.  Wits: Joseph H. Usrey, Martin T. Walker." [This is from the abstract; the original will appears to be missing.] The will was probated 16 April 1880 Greene County, Indiana [Greene County, Indiana, Probate order books, Book 12, p. 483): 23rd day March term 1880 / April 16, 1880.

Comes now Daniel H. Fields one of the Executors named in the last Will and Testamednt of James Gastineau, deceased, and files his petition for letters testamentary. Wherefore it is ordered by the Court that said Daniel H. Fields as Executor execute and file his bond as such in the penalty of Eight Thousand dollars ($8000.00) with surety to the approval of the Court which bond is now filed by said Executor in the penalty aforesaid with Samuel S. Sharp, Joseph W. Visey[?], Thomas Rigely, and David Lynn as sureties and is by the Court approved.

Children of James3 Gastineau and Patience Morrow (see #5), all born in Greene County, Indiana, were as follows:

  •    i. Nancy J.2 Gastineau; born 1822-1826?; married 1st William L. Wakefield 2 September 1858 in Greene County, Indiana (his 2nd wife) [Greene County, Indiana, Marriage records, Book F, p. 422); married 2nd Daniel H. Fields 1885? in Greene County, Indiana (his 2nd wife].

  •    ii. Andrew Jackson Gastineau; born 1823? In the 1870 census, he was living with his sister, Margaret.

    Andrew J. appears on the 1850 census in Stockton Twp, Greene County, Indiana, p. 359:

        Gastineau, Andrew, 27 yrs, b. Kentucky, Farmer (value of real estate = $800)
                          Levi, brother, 22 yrs, b. Kentucky

    NOTE: Several errors here. Both of them actually were born in Greene County. In 1850, they were living on and working some land just down the road from the family farm.

    He also appears on the 1870 census in Greene County, p. 359, living with his sister, Margaret.

  •    iii. Elizabeth Gastineau; born 1827; married George Dye 19 October 1849 in Kentucky (his 1st wife) [Greene County, Indiana, Marriage records, Book E, p. 64].

  •    iv. Adam Gastineau; born 14 February 1830; married Elizabeth Nantz 26 September 1850 in Greene County, Indiana [Greene County, Indiana, Marriage records, Book E, p. 206); died 1 December 1864 at near Linton, Greene County, Indiana. He moved to Shelby County, Illinois, between 1853 and 1857.

    Adam enlisted 15 August 1862 in the Shelbyville Volunteers, which became Company D, 35th Illinois Volunteer Infantry. He was wounded in the face and neck at Chickamauga; he went home on furlough to recover and died of smallpox while visiting his parents. (A bit of irony there. . . .)

  •    v. Mary H. Gastineau; born September 1832; married James Brice Baughn 13 September 1855 in Greene County, Indiana (his 2nd wife) [Greene County, Indiana, Marriage records, Book F, p. 119); died 25 May 1875 at Pawnee City, Pawnee County, Nebraska.

  • 2 viii. Levi Gastineau.

  •    vi. Emily J. Gastineau; born 19 July 1835; married Daniel H. Fields 17 October 1854 in Greene County, Indiana (his 1st wife) [Greene County, Indiana, Marriage records, Book F, p. 43); died 26 January 1886 in Greene County, Indiana.

  •    viii. Martha A. Gastineau; born 25 December 1842; married 1st Samuel Alexander Bynum 20 September 1863 in Greene County, Indiana [Greene County, Indiana, Marriage records, Book G, p. 306); married 2nd James Brice Baughn 25 July 1878 at Greene County, Indiana (his 3rd wife); died 28 October 1885 in Greene County, Indiana.

  • 5. Patience3 Morrow (Samuel, #10]. Born 4 April 1804 in Kentucky. Died 21 September 1872 in Greene County, Indiana. Buried in Old German Cemetery, Linton, Greene County, Indiana.

    She was almost certainly related to Cerelda Morrow, but how? Aunt/neice . . . ?







    6. George Washington3 Hatfield (Ale, #12]. Born 16 January 1812 probably in Anderson County, Tennessee. Married Elizabeth Snyder (see #7), daughter of Christopher Snyder and Frances —(?)—, 1832? in Greene County, Indiana. Died 31 May 1884 in Greene County, Indiana. He was buried in Greene County, Indiana. The grave is located in Section 23, Jackson Twp, in the northeast corner of the section, south off County Road 500S, 1-1/2 miles east of Sexson Spring (on George W.'s property]. It's a very isolated spot, a single grave with a good quality headstone.

    He also was known as "Wash," and was a member of the Christian Church. He was, at various times, a farrier and a gunsmith, in addition to the usual farming.

    Children of George Washington3 Hatfield and Elizabeth Snyder (see #7), all born in Greene County, Indiana, were as follows:

    • 3 i. Rachel2 Hatfield.

    •    ii. Nancy Hatfield; born 22 March 1838 [Bloomfield [Indiana] News, 26 April 1917, vol. 41, no. 23, p. 4); married Hiram Lamb Sr. 3 August 1855 in Greene County, Indiana [Ibid]. Died 20 April 1917 Greene County, Indiana. Buried in Dishman Cemetery, Greene County, Indiana.

              OBITUARY. Mrs. Nancy (Hatfield) Lamb was born March 22, 1838, and died April 20, 1917, aged seventy-nine years and twenty-eight days. She was the daughter of Washington and Elizabeth Hatfield, one of a family of nine brothers and three sisters. She was married to Hiram Lamb, Sr., August 3, 1855, in her eighteenth year. To them were born three daughters, Abbie, now the wife of Helmer Holmes; Patsey, the deceased wife of Harve Jackson, of Owensburg; and Linea, the wife of Lon Strosnider, of Owensburg. She had twenty-one grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. Four brothers and one sister survive her. She remained at the old home in Jackson Township for about two years, but finally gave it up and made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Holmes, in Washington Township, where she died.
              She was a member of the church at Bethel, in Jackson Township, for fifty-seven years. She prepared the loaf for the communion service for forty years, ceasing when she was no longer able. She was a woman of humble pretensions, but faithful and true, and helpful to her family and her neighbors. Those who knew her long and well say "Aunt Nancy was a good woman" — say it without being asked. Funeral services in the home where she died, last Saturday afternoon, and interment in the Dishman cemetery, in Jackson Township, on the day following, largely attended at both places. In hope of the resurrection, "Let her sleep." [Ibid.]

    •    iii. Joel Hatfield; born 8 February 1841; married Dolly Brown, daughter of Jehu(?) Brown and Rachel —(?)—, 11 September 1865 in Greene County, Indiana [Bloomfield [Indiana] News, 8 August 1912, Vol. 35, no. 38, p. 5); died 1 August 1912 at Greene County, Indiana; buried in Owensburg Cemetery, Greene County, Indiana. [Ibid.]

              OBITUARY. Joel Hatfield died at his home near Owensburg, Aug. 1, 1912, aged seventy-one years, five months and twenty-three days.
              He was a soldier in the Civil War, having enlisted at Bedford in Company B, Eighteenth Indiana Regiment in 1861. While stationed at Indianapolis his first service was guard duty. An incident of his faithfulness was brought out once when he was on guard duty at the arsenal. Gov. O.P. Morton approached the arsenal, carrying a lighted cigar. He was unknown to young Hatfield at that time and as he approached, the young soldier commanded him to lay aside his cigar. He responded that he was Gov. Morton, but regardless of his official importance, Mr. Hatfield refused to allow the Governor to proceed until he had thrown away the cigar. This act made him much admired by the famous war governor.
              His regiment left Indianpolis for the scene of the war in Missouri the same time Gen. Lyon was killed in the battle at Wilson Creek, Mo. The regiment landed at St. Louis and engaged in all the hard marches and skirmishes in northern Missouri and was in the army of Gen. Fremont when he marched to Springfield, Mo., at which place Fremont was superseded and the army ordered to fall back to Otterville, Mo. At this place the health of the deceased failed and after spending the winter there he was honorably discharged by reason of disability.
              After his return from the war he was married to Miss Dollie Brown. To this happy union were born seven children, two of whom died in infancy. The otehr five, four sons, Hiram, Kiah, Noah, and Jesse (Hatfield) and one daughtrer, Mrs. Coral Lamb, with the widow and four brothers and two sisters — namely Jerry, John, James, and Martin (Hatfield) and Mrs. Nancy Lamb and Martha Jackson, out of his father's family of twelve children — remain to mourn his death, together with a host of relatives, neighbors and friends.
              Early in life he united with the Baptist church at Owensburg, later changing his membership to the Chirstian church. He lived a consistent Christian life and died in hope of eternal life, beloved by all who knew him.
              "Farewell soldier, brother, mate, loved citizen and friend, rest here from toil, thy goal is won, in blood of the atoning One; while sweet remembrance of the just shall 'ere cling round thy mortal dust, thy kindly virtues to command."
              The funeral was largely attended. Two of his comrades of Co. B, namely Capt. John D. Alexander, of Owensburg, F. M. Dugger, of Bloomfield, and Col. Vinson V. Williams, of Bedford, with other soldiers, were present, and suggested the data from which the greater part of this biography was written.
              The undersighed made a short talk at the home and cemetery. The burial was at the Owensburg cemetery Saturday noon.

      Generation Four

      8. George4 Gastineau. Born 1775? probably in Virginia.  Married 1st —(?)—. Married 2nd Mary ("Polly") Roper, daughter of David Roper, 1811 in Pulaski County, Kentucky. Died 1860-1870 in Pulaski County, Kentucky.

      NOTE: In family tradition, George is supposed to have married 1st Sally Carraway (see #9), 9 June 1791, in Lynhaven Parish, Princess Anne County, Virginia. However, this depends on his name having been recorded as Gasking. There was, in fact, a "George Gasking" in Lynhaven who married Sally Carraway on the date noted — but this was NOT George Gastineau. Both the Gaskings and the Carraways are thoroughly-researched families in Princess Anne County, and neither of them has any documented connection of any kind to the Gastineau family. A supposed marriage to Sally Carraway is wishful thinking and the identity of his first wife (my ancestor) is still unknown.

      ALSO NOTE: Research in the dozen years by Janie Budd & her father has uncovered a George Lewis Gastineau in Maryland who left a will and whose descent from one of the many Huguenot Gastineau families in England in the 18th and 19th centuries can be documented. George Lewis is of an age to be my George's grandfather. And among George Lewis's children is Job Gastineau Sr., probably a Revolutionary veteran and the progenitor of the senior Gastineau line in this country. Since Job Sr. and my George both moved from Virginia to Pulaski County, Kentucky at about the same time, and were known to be in close association there, it seems more and more likely that my George is a grandson of George Lewis, the son either of Job Sr. (and his apparent 1st wife, Elizabeth Nutterwell) or of one of George Lewis's other sons, as follows:

      • (1) Both lived close together in Virginia and Kentucky and were obviously related in some way.

      • (2) Their apparent birth dates (now that Job Sr.'s probable birthdate has been established more clearly) are a generation apart. They could be brothers, but that would be on the very edge of possibility.

      • (3) Job Sr. is almost certainly not George's uncle, since his own father, George Lewis, had no brothers who could have been George's father.

      Now, if I could only firmly document these deductions one way or the other! But since George Lewis seems very likely now to be my ancestor — through whichever of his sons — I will assume, for now, that he is my George's grandfather and will track his ancestry farther in this report.

      In 1807, George brought his first wife and children from Virginia (county unknown) to Pulaski County, Kentucky. The earliest deed on record for him is dated 29 July 1811; he and his first wife are buried on that farm. An early news clipping, now lost, says he died at age 98 — but he has not been found in the 1870 census.

      He appeared on the 1808 tax list of Pulaski County, and on all the tax lists between 1810 & 1815 and between 1818 & 1829.

      George appears on the 1810 census in Pulaski County, Kentucky, p. 147:

          Gastinue, George               Males: under 10 - 2                       Females: 10-16 - 1
                                                                 26-45 - 1                                             26-45 - 1
                                                      Others (exc. Indians & slaves) - 1

      He appears on the 1820 census in Pulaski County, Kentucky, p. 48:

          Gastineau, George             Males: under 10 - 1                          Females: under 10 - 1
                                                                 16-18 - 1                                               10-16 - 1
                                                                 16-26 - 1                                               16-26 - 1
                                                                 over 45 - 1

      He appears on the 1830 census in Pulaski County, Kentucky, p. 14:

          Gastineu, George               Males: under 5 - 1                            Females: under 5 - 1
                                                                 5-10 - 1                                                 10-15 - 1
                                                                 50-60 - 1                                               30-40 - 1

      On 27 February 1833, George received a land grant of 50 A. on the Rockcastle River [Book R-2, p. 119)  [Jillson, Willard Rouse, The Kentucky Land Grants; a Systematic Index to All of the Land Grants Recorded in the State Land Office at Frankfort, Kentucky, 1782-1924 [Louisville, KY: Standard Printing Co, 1925), Kentucky Land Warrants (1816-1873), p. 559]. On 28 February 1833, he received another grant of 25 A. on Buck Creek [Book R-2, p. 118) [Ibid].

      He appears on the 1840 census in Pulaski County, Kentucky, p. 302:

          Gastinew, George               Males: 10-15 - 1                              Females: under 5 - 1
          (agriculture - 2)                               60-70 - 1                                              5-10 - 1
                                                                                                                              10-15 - 1
                                                                                                                              40-50 - 1

      "On June 18, 1849, Green McAlister deeded to John Cundiff, Willie Eastham, and George Gastineau a plot of ground one and one-half miles from Somerset on the Crab Orchard Road. On this lot was built the Caney Fork Christian Church. This building was destroyed by a storm" on 18 June 1849 [Pulaski County [Kentucky] Historical Research (np: npub, nd), Book 2, p. 111].

      He appears on the 1850 census in Pulaski County, Kentucky, p. 61:

          Gastinew, George, 73 yrs, b. Virginia, Farmer (value of real estate = $600)
                           Polly, wife, 55 yrs, b. North Carolina [probably wrong . . .]
                           Elizabeth, dau, 12 yrs, b. Kentucky

      On 27 March 1854, George received another land grant of 11 A. on Buck Creek (Book 42, p. 224]. On 13 November 1859, he received a grant of 11 A. on Flat Lick Creek (Book 58, p. 475].

      He appears on the 1860 census in Pulaski County, Kentucky, p. 303:

          Gastinue, George, 84 yrs, b. Virginia, Farmer (value of real estate = $1,000)
                           Mary, wife, 65 yrs, b. Kentucky [definitely wrong!]

      No will or probate file has been located for George . . . which seems unlikely, given all the separate parcels of land he owned.

      Known children of George4 Gastineau and Sally Carraway (see #9) all born in Virginia, were as follows:

      •    i. Anna3 Gastineau; born c1797; married Thomas Clare 11 June 1816 in Pulaski County, Kentucky.

      • 4 ii. James Gastineau.

      •    iii. William Flint Gastineau; born 6 December 1803 [Pulaski County Historical Society, Pulaski County, Kentucky, Cemetery Records (Somerset, KY: Pulaski County Historical Society, 1976); married Anna Claunch 12 August 1832 [date from Ancestral File — the only source I've found] in Pulaski County, Kentucky; died 8 September 1897 in Pulaski County, Kentucky; buried in the Gastineau-Gilliland Cemetery, Pulaski County, Kentucky [Pulaski County Historical Society, Pulaski County, Kentucky, Cemetery Records]. Known in the family as "Billy Flint."

      •    iv. Jane Gastineau; born 1804; married Abel Gilliland 4 February 1822 in Pulaski County, Kentucky; died 19 September 1848 near Mark, Pulaski County, Kentucky.







      9. —(?)—4. Born probably c1775, probably in Virginia. Died 1810? in Pulaski County, Kentucky.







      10. Samuel4 Morrow. Born before 1765 (according to the 1810 census) or 1775-1785 (according to the 1820 census), probably in Virginia.

      Samuel appears on the Pulaski County, Kentucky tax list for 1800 with 150 A. on Buck Creek (originally entered by James Sears), plus 1 white male 21+, and 5 horses [Pulaski County, Kentucky Tax Lists, Part 3]. He appears on all subsequent tax lists through1808, and on the lists of 1811-1812, 1814-1816, 1818, and 1820-1820. (The omitted years are probably inadvertant as there is no indication that he ever left Pulaski County.)

      Samuel appears on the 1810 census in Pulaski County, Kentucky [pages unnumbered]:

          Morrow, Samuel           Males: 10-16 - 1                       Females: under 10 - 1
                                                          over 45 - 1                                   10-16 - 1
                                                                                                               over 45 - 1

      He appears on the 1820 census in Pulaski County, Kentucky, p. 40:

          Morrow, Samuel           Males: 26-45 - 1                       Females: 10-15 - 1
                                                                                                               26-45 - 1

      NOTE: Because of the discrepancies in ages between the two censuses, it's possible that the "Samuel Morrow" listed in 1820 was actually a son; likewise for the later tax lists.

      Known children of Samuel4 Morrow were:







      12. Ale4 Hatfield (Joseph, #24]. Born 29 October 1779 probably in Washington County, Virginia [date taken from his headstone, erected by his son, Armistead]. Married 1st Milly Gibson, daughter of George Gibson and Margaret Locke, c1798 in Virginia; they were separated for 25 years and finally were divorced 4 April 1836 in Greene County, Indiana. (Milly traveled up from Kentucky to do it]. Married 2nd Elizabeth Young (see #13) 7 April 1836 in Greene County, Indiana, with whom he had been living and producing children since c1811. Died 10 November 1841 in Greene County, Indiana. Buried in a separate enclosure near the Armistead Hatfield Cemetery, Owensburg, Greene County, Indiana.

      NOTE: No one seems to agree on how to pronounce Ale's name. My best guess, based on various onomastic sources, is A-LEE, with a long 'A'. It may be a corruption of Eli or Ely in an earlier generation.

      Ale appears on the 1810 census in Wayne County, Kentucky, p. 354:

          Hatfield, Eli               Males: under 10 - 2                       Females: 16-26 - 1
                                                       36-45 - 1

      He appears on the 1820 census in Wayne County, Kentucky, p. 101:

          Hatfield, Ale               Males: under 10 - 2                       Females: under 10 - 2
                                                        10-15 - 2                                            26-44 - 1
                                                        26-44 - 1

      He appears on the 1830 census in Fentress County, Tennessee, p. 15:

          Hatfield, Ale Sen.       Males: 10-15 - 1                           Females: under 5 - 1
                                                        15-20 - 1                                           10-15 - 1
                                                        50-60 - 1                                           15-20 - 1
                                                                                                                  40-50 - 1

      Ale migrated with his family to to Jackson Twp, Greene County, Indiana, in 1831 [History of Greene and Sullivan Counties, State of Indiana (Chicago: npub, 1884), p. 344].

      He appears on the 1840 census in Greene County, Indiana, p. 218:

      Hatfield, Ali                     Males: 60-70 - 1                           Females: 10-15 - 1
                                                                                                                  60-70 - 1

      Ale's will was probated (in part) 18 February 1843 Greene County, Indiana [Greene County, Indiana, Probate order books, Book C, p. 9):

      Ale Hatfield Estate.
             Comes now John R. Stone administrator of the estate of said decedent and acknowledges himself chargable to said estate by inventories, sale bill & cash received in the sum of one hundred and sixty four dollars and ninety one cents and now said administrator filed the following receipts to wit (vouchers):

And upon motion of said Admst. ordered that this case be continued to next Term of this Court. Ordered that Court adjourn till tomorrow morning 9 o'clock.

             Record signed February the 18th day A.D. 1843.

              NOTE: There was obviously an earlier accounting from the previous December term of court, but this is the only record surviving.

      Children of Ale4 Hatfield and Elizabeth Young (see #13) were as follows:

      •    i. Emanuel3 Hatfield; born 22 December 1805 in Campbell County, Tennessee; married 1st Nancy Anderson, daughter of William Anderson, 21 January 1826 in Wayne County, Kentucky [June Baldwin Bork (comp), Wayne County, Kentucky Marriages and Vital Records, 1801-1860 (Huntington Beach, CA: The Author, 1972-73), p. __.); married 2nd Mary Edwards 1850-1860 in Greene County, Indiana (no children); died 1 January 1892 in Greene County, Indiana; buried in the Emanuel Hatfield Cemetery, near Owensburg, Greene County, Indiana.

        Emanuel was widely regarded as (and obviously considered himself as) a "mighty hunter." His memoirs, Stories of Hatfield the Pioneer (first published 1890; reprinted 1978), of which I have a copy, are concerned mostly with detailed descriptions of his hunting prowess in Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois. He supplies some genealogical data only incidentally . . . and not much of it, either.

        Emanuel appears on the 1830 census in Campbell County, Tennessee, p. 236:

            Hatfield, Emanuel               Males: under 5 - 2                  Females: 20-30 - 1
                                                                20-30 - 1

        He migrated to Greene County, Indiana, in 1831 and appears on the 1840 census in Greene County, Indiana, p. 218:

            Hatfield, Manuel                  Males: 5-10 - 2                       Females: under 5 - 3
                (agriculture - 4)                          10-15 - 2                                     5-10 - 1
                                                                30-40 - 1                                     30-40 - 1

        In 1843, Emanuel and his brothers were engaged in a lawsuit against the administrator of their father's estate [also see above, under Joseph Hatfield] [Greene County, Indiana, Probate order books, Book B, p. 473-74):

        Amanuel Hatfield \ In Apt $12.00 Preference Claim
                      vs.
        John R. Stone administrator of the estate of Ale Hatfield dec'd

                  Comes now the plaintiff by Cavins his agent and files his account as his cause of action herein, and comes also the defendant in his own proper person and by agreement process is waived and this cause is now submitted to the Court for trial and all _____ at law are hereby released and the Court being fully advised in the premises and all things touching the same.
                  It is therefore considered that the plaintiff recover of the defendant the sum of twelve dollars damages together with his costgs in his behalf expended, to be levied of the goods and chattels which were of the said Ale Hatfield at the time of his death and in the hands of the defendant ad administrator aforesaid.

            [In a different hand] February 17th 1843. Received of the defendant twelve dollars seventy two cents the above judgment.

        He appears on the 1850 census in Jackson Twp, Greene County, Indiana, p. 600:

        He appears on the 1870 census of Jackson Twp, Greene County, Indiana, p. 353:

        Finally, he appears on the 1880 census of Jackson Twp, Greene County, Indiana, ED 306, p. 1:

            Hatfield, Emanuel, 74 yrs, b. Tennessee (parents, b. Virginia). Farmer
                         Mary, wife, 75 yrs, b. North Carolina (parents, b. North Carolina)

      •    ii. Ale C. Hatfield; born c1808 probably in Campbell County, Tennessee; married Mary E. Records, daughter of Josiah Records and Jane —(?)—, c1829 in Tennessee; died before 1900 in Greene County, Indiana.

        He appears on the 1850 census of Jackson Twp, Gree County, Indiana, p. 607:

            Hatfield, Ale, 20 yrs, b. Indiana, Farmer (value of real estate = $400)
                         Mary E., wife, 18 yrs, b. Kentucky

      •    ix. Joseph Hatfield; born c1827 in Tennessee; married Elizabeth(?) Quillan 18 July 1849 in Greene County, Indiana.

      In the photo below, Emanuel Hatfield is on the left, his younger brother Armstead is on the right. This picture was taken c.1880. The way the brothers have self-consciously decked themselves out in antique hunting gear and weapons is evidence of Emanuel's well-documented sense of play and and love of frontier-style bragging.








      13. Elizabeth4 Young. Born 1789? in Virginia. Died 15 March 1852 in Greene County, Indiana. Buried in the Armistead Hatfield Cemetery, Owensburg, Greene County, Indiana.







      14. Christopher4 Snyder.  Born c1785 Kentucky? Married Frances —(?)— (see #15) [NOTE: These names and this relationship come entirely from Ancestral File, and may be entirely erroneous . . . but I'll accept it as a starting point.]

      The only known child of Christopher4 Snyder and Frances —(?)— was:

      16. Job5 Gastineau Sr. (George, #32); born 1745-1750 probably in Maryland [Janice Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau]. Married 1st Elizabeth Nutterwell (see #17), daughter of Robert Nutterwell and Mary —(?)— circa 1770 probably in Maryland [Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau]. Married 2nd Elizabeth Mercer Brown, daughter of John Brown and Elizabeth Mercer, circa 1781 also probably in Maryland [Tibbals, History of Pulaski County, Kentucky, pp. 39-41; Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau]. Married 3rd Hannah Rogers, daughter of Edward Rogers and Hannah Borden, 8 November 1812 Pulaski County, Kentucky (marriage license obtained 30 October 1812; her 2nd husband) [Tibbals, History of Pulaski County, Kentucky, pp. 39-41; Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau]. He died circa 1826 Pulaski County, Kentucky [Tibbals, History of Pulaski County, Kentucky, pp. 39-41].

      According to family histories, Job served in the Virginia militia from 2 January 1777 Middlebrook, Augusta County, Virginia. The DAR records list him as follows: "GASTINEAU, Job: b. 1760, d. 1856. m. Elizabeth Mercer Brown. Pvt., Virginia" [DAR Patriot Index, Centennial edition (Washington, DC: National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, 1994), p. 261].

      However, the Revolutionary service record is for Job Gaskins, who enlisted at Middle Brook, Augusta County, Virginia, on 2 January 1777 for a term of 3 years (but served only until the end of December 1779). There is absolutely no indication, contemporary or otherwise, that "Gaskins" can be accepted here as the equivalent of "Gastineau".

      Another record cites military service for Job Gastineau on 30 November 1778 in Virginia. Mrs. S. A. Frye of Somerset, Kentucky contends that Job's Revolutionary War service record is taken from Saffell's Virginia Soldiers (p. 267): Job Gastineau, Private, 12th Virginia Co., November 30, 1778, under Capt. John Gregory, in Col. Daniel Moran's Co.

      However, John W. Dudley, Asst. Archivist, Virginia State Library (Richmond), states that "An examination of W. T. R. Saffell's Records of the Revolutionary War reveals that the references on p. 267 pertain [again] to one Job Gaskins rather than to Job Gastineau."

      Dr. John E. Manahan, Prof. of History at Virginia State Univ (and a reliable genealogist) says the name Gastineau had never been spelled Gaskins, as he himself is of the Gaskins lineage and is familiar with their pedigree.

      Job worked at one point as a surveyor and recorded a survey of 316 acres, south side of Middle Fork, Holston River on 17 February 1790 Washington County, Virginia [Lewis Preston Summers, History of Southwest Virginia, 1746-1786; Washington County, 1777-1870 Richmond, VA: J. L. Hill Printing Co, 1903), p. 1219].

      He received a grant of 279 A. on Neil Branch, Middle Fork, Holston River, Washington County, Virginia. Witnessed by [his son?] George Gastineau. Originally granted (5 June 1774) to John Hopton, later sold to James Anderson, then inherited by his son, William Anderson on 19 October 1799 Washington County, Virginia [Summers, History of Southwest Virginia, p. 812].

      From Job and Elizabeth Gaskenew to James Grimes, 175 A. (Washington County, Virginia, Deed Book 3, p. 120) in 1803 Washington County, Virginia. Also: Job and Elizabeth Gastinian to William Stalcup, 125 A. (Washington County, Virginia, Deed Book 4, p. 64) in 1807 Washington County, Virginia.

      He migrated to Pulaski County, Kentucky, between 1808 and 1810.

      Job appears on the 1810 census of Pulaski County, Kentucky:

         Gastineau, Job           Males: 16-26 - 1               Females: 10-16 - 1                                                  
                                                       over 45 - 1                            over 45 - 1

      Only known child of Job5 Gastineau Sr. and Elizabeth Nutterwell (see #17) was:







      17. Elizabeth5 Nutterwell (Robert, #34); married Job Gastineau Sr. (see #16), son of George Lewis Gastineau and Mary Marvel (?), circa 1770 probably in Maryland (his 1st wife) [Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau].

      Mary's father may have been Thomas Marvel, who gave Job Gastineau a horse in the division of his property, 1753. Job, then, would have been Thomas's grandson.







      24. Joseph5 Hatfield. Born c1739 in Virginia. Married 1st Elizabeth Vance (see #25), daughter of Ephraim Vance, c1760 probably in Washington County, Virginia (now Russell County]. Married 2nd Rachel Smith, daughter of Ericus Smith and Brigett Andersdatter, 28 October 1779 in Washington County, Virginia. Died 29 August 1832 in Campbell County, Tennessee.

      Joseph served in the Revolution before 1779 as a private soldier and as an Indian scout & spy in the Virginia militia under Col. Chrisman for two terms of six months each. He also served later on the western frontier under Capt. Thompson, also as an Indian spy. [In fact, I originally got into the SAR on his service, though I've added several other ancestors since then.]

      He moved to East Tennessee before 1790 and appears on the 1830 census of Campbell County, Tennessee, p. 236:

          Hatfield, Joseph               Males: 80-90 - 1
                                                Females: 70-80 - 1

      Known children of Joseph5 Hatfield and Elizabeth Vance (see #25) were as follows:

      •      i. Ephraim4 Hatfield; married 1st Mary Goff (her 2nd husband); born c1765 in Washington County, Virginia; married 2nd Anne (McKinney) Musick 1795? probably in Pike County, Kentucky (her 2nd husband; she was the widow of David Musick, killed by Indians in a famous incident); died 16 June 1855 on Blackberry Creek, Pike County, Kentucky. Ephraim moved to Blackberry Creek (which is not far from Matewan) shortly after his 2nd marriage.

        He appears on the 1820 census in Overton County, Tennessee, p. 15:

            Hatfield, Ephriam               Males: 16-26 - 1               Females: 16-26 - 1
                                                                         26-45 - 1

      •      ii. Mary Hatfield; born c1768 in Virginia.

      •      iii. Valentine Hatfield; born c1767 in Virginia; died 1840. Valentine surveyed 66-1/4 A. on the middle fork of the Wolf River. Recorded 12 May 1808, Overton County, Tennessee [Willis Hutcherson (comp), Tennessee Homesteaders and Landowners; Fourth Surveyors District: Anderson, Bledsoe, Campbell, Overton, Rhea, and Roane Counties. [Abstracts of Survey Book 1808-1810 & Entry Book 1814-1815) (np: The Author, 1964), p. 27].

        Valentine appears on the 1820 census in Overton County, Tennessee, p. 15:

            Hatfield, Valentine Sr.           Males: under 10 - 2           Females: 16-26 - 1
                                                                            26-45 - 1                                   over 45 - 1

        He appears on the 1830 census in Roane County, Tennessee, p. 11:

            Hatfield, Valentine                 Males: under 5 - 1              Females: 30-40 - 1
                                                                           5-10 - 1                                      70-80 - 1
                                                                           10-15 - 2
                                                                           50-60 - 1

      •      iv. George Hatfield; born c1770 in Virginia; married Sarah Ellis.

      •      v. Joseph Hatfield; born c1777 in Virginia; married Susan —(?)— (his 2nd wife) [1st wife's name not known]; died after 1820? probably in Missouri.

      • 12 vi. Ale Hatfield.

      Joseph had a whole second family by Rachel Smith, from which the more famous branch of the family descends — the feuding Hatfields of the Tug River. His father-in-law, Ericus Smith, was apparently a Swedish-ized German miner who came to Wilmington, Delaware, and became a Deacon in the Old Swedes Church there. Though I don't descend from this second wife's line, it's an interesting family and I intend to add details later.







      25. Elizabeth5 Vance (Ephraim, #50]. Born c1735 reportedly in Isle of Wight County, Virginia. Died December 1778 in Washington County, Virginia.







      26. William5 Young. Born c1763 in Virginia? Married Elizabeth —(?)— in Virginia. [Again, all this information comes from Ancestral File and is automatically suspect until supporting evidence turns up.]

      Only known child of William5 Young and Elizabeth —(?)— was:







      Generation Six

      32. George Lewis6 Gastineau (Mathurin, #64). Born 3 November 1717 London, England ["Registers of the Church Known as La Patente in Spittlefields from 1689 to 1785," Publications of The Huguenot Society of London (London: Huguenot Society of London, 1898)]. Baptized 17 November 1717 La Patente, Spitalfields, London, England ["Registers of the Church Known as La Patente . . . 1689 to 1785"].
             Another supposed birth date is February 1715 Spitalfields, London, England [Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau, p. 4], but I don't know where Mr. Budd got this date. Married Mary Marvel (?) (see #33) [E-mail message from Janie Budd, 9 April 1999]. Died between 15 October and 13 December 1768 Somerset County, Maryland [Maryland Calendar of Wills (Westminster, MD: Family Line Publications, 1993), Vol. 14 (1767-1772), p. 60].

      He first appeared on the 1738 tax list in Somerset County, Maryland [E-mail message from John C. Lyon, 22 November 1998].

      George Lewis apparently fought for Great Britain the War of Jenkins Ear in 1740 — a colonial war in the Caribbean with a fascinating origin! (Though it's not at all clear how he got from the Caribbean to Virginia or Maryland.) If not for war, however, he probably would have stayed in London, and I wouldn't be here. [E-mail message from Janie Budd, 9 April 1999].

      On 24 November 1753 in Somerset County, Maryland, he witnessed the will of Samuel Melson, a planter (together with Morgan & Bridget Corderi) [Maryland Calendar of Wills, Vol. 11 (1753-1760), p. 116].

      He was mentioned in Gilbert Huffington's patent before 1762 for the adjacent tract, "Stoppage" at "Gastineau's Landing," on the south side of Barren Creek, Somerset County, Maryland (Barren Creek is opposite present day Mardela Springs, in what is now Wicomico) [E-mail message from John C. Lyon, 22 November 1998].

      In August 1766, Somerset County, Maryland, he was sued for a £50 debt by George Brown in the August session of court [E-mail message from John C. Lyon, 22 November 1998].

      He wrote his will 4 October 1768 Somerset County, Maryland [Fol. 63, no. 601; Maryland Calendar of Wills, Vol. 14 (1767-1772), p. 60], in which he names his children: "Jno." [i.e., listed elsewhere as "Job"], Elizabeth, Mary, Tabitha Messick, and Jane Russell. He also mentions his plantation tract: "Chance". Executrix: Wife, Mary Gastineau. Witnesses: John Stanford, John & Sarah Read.

      His will was probated 14 December 1768 Somerset County, Maryland.

      Children of George Lewis6 Gastineau and Mary Marvel (?) (see #33) were as follows:

      • i. Jane5 Gastineau; married —(?)— Russell [E-mail message from Janie Budd, 9 April 1999].

      • ii. Tabitha Gastineau; married —(?)— Messick [E-mail message from Janie Budd, 9 April 1999].

      • 16 iii. Job Gastineau Sr..

      • iv. Elizabeth Gastineau.

      • v. Mary Gastineau.







      33. Mary6 Marvel (?); married George Lewis Gastineau (see #32), son of Mathurin Gastineau and Jeanne Chabousant [E-mail message from Janie Budd, 9 April 1999].

      Mary was possibly the daughter of Thomas Marvel, who gave Job Gastineau (George Lewis's son) a horse in the division of his property, 1753. Job would, then, have been Thomas's grandson. [Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau, p. 4].







      34. Robert6 Nutterwell. Married Mary —(?)— (see #35) [Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau]. Apparently died 1746 Dorchester County, Maryland [Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau, p. 4].

      However, his will was probated in 1775 in Pulaski County, Kentucky. Is this when and where Robert died? Or is this simply a long-delayed resolution to his estate. . . ? The inventory of his estate was approved by his "kinsmen," Job & Eliz. Gastineau [Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau].

      Only known child of Robert6 Nutterwell and Mary —(?)— (see #35) was:







      35. Mary6 —(?)—. Married Robert Nutterwell (see #34) [Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau].







      50. Ephraim6 Vance. Born before 1715? in Virginia.

      Only known child of Ephraim6 Vance was:







      Generation Seven

      64. Mathurin7 Gastineau (Pierre, #128). Born 23 July 1666 Lusignan, Vienne, Poitou, France ["Registers of the Church Known as La Patente . . . 1689 to 1785", Marriage Record; Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau, p. 5]. He was apparently a Protestant and fled to England as a young man (along with thousands of other Huguenots) because he married Jeanne Chabousant (see #65), daughter of Jean Chaboussant and Catherine Bellet, 8 November 1692 La Patente, Spitalfields, London, England ["Registers of the Church Known as La Patente . . . 1689 to 1785", Marriage Record; Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau, p. 4]. Died between 17 November 1747 and 1 February 1749 Spitalfields, London, England [Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau, p. 4].

      Maturin also appears in the La Patente registers as Gatino, Gatineau, and Gattineau ["Registers of the Church Known as La Patente . . . 1689 to 1785"].

      He was admitted to the Weavers Company on 15 July 1693 as a "foreign master" on payment of a £5 fine and was employed as Master weaver in 1694 in London ["Registers of the Church Known as La Patente . . . 1689 to 1785"].

      He lived in December 1698 and in February 1700 at Little Pearl Street, Stepney, Middlesex, England. In July 1701, he is recorded at Win Court, Stepney, but in September 1702 he was back in Pearl Street. He is also there in January 1704, March 1709, July 1712, and February 1715 ["Registers of the Church Known as La Patente . . . 1689 to 1785"].

      In December 1707, London, he and his wife are described in a baptismal record as "refugees living in Spittlefields" or "living in refuge in Spittlefields" — implying that both were born in France.

      He was naturalized in 1709 in London ["Letters of Denization and Acts of Naturalization for Aliens in England & Ireland, 1701-1800," Publications of the Huguenot Society of London (London: Huguenot Society of London, 1923), Oath roll ("Skin") 5].

      He is recorded as being a Master Weaver in July 1712 in London ["Registers of the Church Known as La Patente . . . 1689 to 1785"].

      His will is dated 16 November 1747 London and was probated on 3 February 1749 London [Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau, p. 4].

      Children of Mathurin7 Gastineau and Jeanne Chabousant (see #65) were as follows:

      • i. Louise6 Gastineau; born 18 October 1694 Spitalfields, London, England; baptized 22 October 1694 La Patente, Spitalfields, London, England ["Registers of the Church Known as La Patente . . . 1689 to 1785"].

        Mathurin Jr. immigrated before 1730 to Wicomico Hundred, Virginia, probably arriving as an indentured servant, because he first appears in that year as "Matthew Gastinew" in the household of Joseph Cottman. He lived in 1735 at Nanicoke Hundred, Virginia (in the household of John Hovington). In 1736, he apparently had a separate household at Nanicoke Hundred, Virginia (which included Joseph Allphew) [Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau, p. 5].

        He bought 100 A. from Edward Kellam on the north side of Barren Creek in 1757 Somerset County, Maryland [Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau, p. 5].

        He wrote a will in 1765, naming no heirs (i.e., no surviving children. . .?), but naming his brother, George Lewis, as executor [E-mail message from Janie Budd, 9 April 1999; Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau, p. 4].

      • vii. Charles Gastineau; born 9 September 1702 London, England; baptized 16 September 1702 La Patente, Spitalfields, London, England ["Registers of the Church Known as La Patente . . . 1689 to 1785"]; died 1780 London? [Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau, p. 4].

      • xii. Jeanne Gastineau; born 14 March 1709 London, England; baptized 16 March 1709 La Patente, Spitalfields, London, England (her sponsor was her uncle, "Lewis" Gastineau) ["Registers of the Church Known as La Patente . . . 1689 to 1785"; Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau, p. 4].

        He may have been the "Jacob Gastine" recruited as an indentured servant, 18 April 1726, by Samuel Gloynes of Pennsylvania. ["Emigrants to America: Indentured Servant Recruits in London, 1718–1733"].

      • xiv. Abraham Gastineau; born 4 July 1712 London, England; baptized 5 July 1712 La Patente, Spitalfields, London, England ["Registers of the Church Known as La Patente . . . 1689 to 1785"].

      65. Jeanne7 Chabousant (Jean Chaboussant, #130). Born before 1673 Pamproux, Deux-Sevres, Poitou, France (Pamproux is located about 18 miles east of Niort; west-southwest of Rauille and northeast of La Mothe-St. Heraye — presently just south of the east-west railway line between Rauille and St. Maxient) ["Registers of the Church Known as La Patente . . . 1689 to 1785", Marriage Record; Budd, Ancestors of George (Sr.) Gastineau, p. 4].
