Can anyone identify the father of John Chittum/Cheatham?It's believed that he may have been a Cheatham.Records in Goochland Co. Va. sometimes show the name as Cheatham and at other times as Chittum.Also, some of this family when they moved to Tennessee reacquired the Cheatham name.
If anyone needs help on their Chittum lineage, feel free to contact me.
