What's interesting is there is no Caroline Chinn in 1870.
And the only dividing county is Fauquier. William - where ever he was - obviously visited often enough for there to be quite a few little Chinn's, but would not necessarily have been allowed to stay with Elizabeth if she was working in service.

I'd take a closer look at him.
