Children: (Unknown the exact relationship of the following individuals – they do appear to be related – but it is unknown if they were brothers or cousins, or what their exact relationship was.

  • Adam Chisholm 1739–1816  (Best guess is they were brothers – this Adam Chisholm is disputed whether he descends from the Hanover County, Va Chisholms or the Amelia/Halifax County, Virginia Chisums – there is no clear answer currently – I place him in this line as a “best guess”)

Siblings: (The following “siblings” is a guess – not confirmed)
