Hi,

I'm up for a good mystery! I thought a place to start might be the marriage of the stepmother to Mr. Chastain. I searched the Williamson County Marriages from 1849 - 1901 and did not find any grooms with the last name of Chastain or any other spelling variation of the name.

The census records don't show any Chastain's in the county until 1900's (spelling Chastine).

Perhaps they moved after William's birth. West is a long way for an injured kid to travel from Williamson county. If you have any other thoughts let me know. I'm happy to research what I can.
