"More certainty attaches to the Chastangs of Chastang Station, who are said to have the blood Dr. Jean Chastang. While he was in Mobile the doctor lived on Spira and Pincus' corner, but he afterwards moved to the bluff named for him. The Chastang patois is French, but much corrupted by African and English. The settlement is a very interesting one..."
