Francis Churchill Wiatt was born on 1 Sep 1818 in Virginia, probably in Gloucester or Norfolk County.
According to the bible of John & Caroline Wiatt, Francis was born on 1 Sep 1818.
According to the bible of Rev James Maury Fontaine, Francis was born 1 Sep 1818, and died in Norfolk in Feb 1858.
Francis is buried at Cedar Grove Cemetery, Norfolk, Virginia and the dates on Francis' headstone are 1820 – 15 Feb 1858. His headstone says that he died of consumption.
Via www.familysearch.com, one death record for Francis has these dates: 1818 - 08 Feb 1856. Another death record for Francis has these dates: 1819 - 08 Feb 1857.
Francis Churchill Wiatt and Virginia James Leigh married. The marriage date of 5 Nov 1850 came from "The Wiatt Family of Virginia" by Alexander Lloyd Wiatt (1980). I have not seen this date anywhere else.
The infant Virginius is buried with his father, Francis Churchill Wiatt, at Cedar Grove cemetery in Norfolk, next to Edgar Wiatt/Wyatt. I can't find it right now but I have something that suggests that the widow of Francis was something other than Virginia James Leigh.
I am thinking that possibly Francis had a wife in Gloucester (Virginia James Leigh) and a wife in Norfolk. Virginius is the son of Francis Churchill Wiatt but it is possible that Virginius' mother was not Virginia James Leigh.

Much of the information on the descendants of the Rev. James Maury Fontaine came from his bible which was in the possession of our family for over 200 years. A few years ago a cousin of mine donated it to the Gloucester Genealogical Society of Virginia.
I completed a transcription of this bible on 14 March 2010.
