Walter Chisholm survey on Lincoln Co Va land grant

Walter Chisholm survey on Lincoln Co Va land grant

(Note: As seen in the survey, the land was originally warranted to Walter Chisholm. Walter Chisholm assigned this land warrant to William Chisholm (who appears to be his brother). William Chisholm must have sold the rights to this land – as neither William or Walter has any record of ever moving to Kentucky, or leaving Virginia)

(Note: It appears that William Chisholm of Albemarle Co, Va would occasionally speculate on land with is brother Walter Chisholm Jr – see the below deed in 1799 related to Wilkes County, Georgia – another deed where there is no evidence that either William or Walter ever moved to or lived in Georgia or Kentucky – they both appear to have lived their lives until death in the Hanover/Louisa/Albemarle County, Virginia areas).

(Note: The Broad River runs along the southern border of Elbert County, Georgia dividing it from Wilkes County, Georgia. There is no evidence that this William Chisholm is the same as the William Chisolm who lived in Elbert County, Georgia. While the Elbert County Chisolms continued living in that county and State – William Chisholm of Albemarle/Hanover/Louisa Co, Va continued living in Virginia. It appears that William Chisholm of Albemarle Co, Va would occasionally speculate on land with is brother Walter Chisholm Jr – see the above deed in 1792 related to Lincoln County, Kentucky – another deed where there is no evidence that either William or Walter ever moved to or lived in Kentucky).
