Chastain, Rane

Chastain, Rane, a Baptist minister, was born in Powhatan County, Va., June 28, 1741, of French extraction. When quite young he removed to Buckingham County, where he remained during the rest of his life. When he was about thirty years of age he became a Christian, and soon after began to preach. He was chosen pastor of the Buckingham Church in April. 1772, and continued in office for fifty-three years. He also, at different times, supplied other churches, as his strength would permit. Although not an accomplished preacher, he was an excellent pastor, and greatly beloved by the churches to whom he ministered. He supported himself chiefly by his own labor on a farm. See Lives of Virginic Baptist Ministers, p. 190-192. (J. C. S.)
