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. It is possible that John Chisholm of this page had a brother named Adam Chisholm who is the father of one or more of the below men. That seems to be the concensus of most trees – but I have found no actual documents naming children of either Adam Chisholm the Jacobite, or of John Chisholm d. 1766 in Hanover, Va. Best practice in my opinion is to acknowledge this is not confirmed and that it is “possible” one of these men was the father of one or more of the children listed below).

1766 death of John Chisholm of Hanover County, Virginia – The collection includes account books from Hanover and York counties, Va., 1727-1775, and from Frederick’s Hall Plantation in Louisa County, Va., 1849-1862. The relationship, if any, between the former and the latter is unclear. There is also a letter copybook, 1757-1775, of Major John Snelson, probably a descendant of Elizabeth Snelson (fl. 1727-1728). Snelson wrote chiefly to Edward Harford, Jr., of England about tobacco shipments and imported merchandise. The relationship between this volume and the others is also unclear. Colonial-era merchants represented in ledgers include Colonel John Chisolm (d. 1766), A. Gordon (fl. 1750-1751), and William Montgomery (fl. 1751), all of Hanover County. Activities documented in these ledgers include tobacco sales and mining and mineral export, the daily work of merchants, and importing operations. Activities documented in the antebellum ledgers from Frederick’s Hall include lumber production, manufacture and sale of shoes, tobacco production and trade, and merchandizing. There is also some information on wages for slaves and free laborers. Sheet music for an 1854 polka is also included. Note: This collection was originally divided into parts A and B. The collection has been rearranged chronologically.
