St. Clair, James in Virginia

Jean & other VA researchers:

While doing a net search, I found this following marriage record.  Believe
this could be my James & Elizabeth (at least I think they're mine!).

Lawhorn, Phebe m. Archibald Gunno 13 SEP 1834, Giles Co. VA.  Phebe is
stepdaughter of James St. Clair.  He and Elizabeth his wife gave consent.
Witnesses:  Samuel Hunt and Daniel Gol.  Minister William Garreston.

Not only is this very intriguing, but also adds to the suspicion that I've
had that the Gunno family & St. Clair family were very close friends.  Here
is support that they were in fact related.  I'm pretty sure I have somewhere
that Archibold Gunno lived next door to James St. Clair in Wyoming Co. VA/WV
in the mid-18th century.

This gives me a time frame and also a new county to search in.  I know that
they were in Logan Co. VA by 1840 but didn't know where they were before
that.  I wonder how good Giles Co. VA birth records are?  Any one know?
