James Chittum, b. ca 1779 in VA (wife Sally?)

I have seen a variety of messages indicating that a James Chittum -- with a specific 1778 birth date -- married Sally Richardson in 1802 and had a clearly defined list of children, including the Sally Chittum who married Joshua Householder in Rockbridge Co. VA on 1 Aug 1816.

Is anyone aware of what specific records there are that actually document this family -- or is just this one of those e-genealogies that seem to come into being on their own?

I am most interested in learning what actual evidence there is for this particular node in the Chittum families. Is there a James Chittum/Sally Richardson marriage record somewhere?

There certainly is a Sally Chittum/Joshua Householder record in Rockbridge, and that record shows a father named James for Sally. Does anyone know what the evidence is that the 1778 James Chittum is THE James Chittum (the same James Chittum) named as father of Sally -- and what evidence there is to show a fuller child list for the known father James Chittum?

Thanks! --Carl
