1822 – James P Martin etal v William Smith etal, discovery & relief, 1822, No 16
State of South Carolina, York District}
In Equity
To the Honorable Judges of the Court of Equity
… Orators James P Martin, Joseph G Martin, and Julius M Martin. … John Martin late of the District and State afsd was … at the time of his death devised and possessed of a large real and personal estate constituting of different tracts of land and between 20 and 30 negroes, besides other valuable property in bonds, notes, and a large stock of horses, cows, and so forth … John Martin departed this life intestate on or about the 8th day of June 1802 leaving a widow Elizabeth Martin and 4 children as his only heirs and next of kin … 3 of which children your orators the 4th John F R Martin died intestate and whilst quite and infant. … shortly after his death administration … the goods and chattels, rights and credits which were of the said John Martin decd was granted by the ordinary in and for the Dist and that … his widow and relict Elizabeth Martin, James Martin, and Joseph Palmer. That the said administratrix and administrators by virtue of their letter of admin became possessed of the whole personal estate … and as your orators are informed and believe sold a considerable part therof to an amount considerably more than sufficient to pay all the debt of the estate and defray the expenses of administration.
Your orators further shew … that a certain Andrew Bodan instituted a suit in the Court of Common Pleas at York Court House in for the Dist and State afsd against Joseph Palmer and Elizabeth Martin administrator and administratrix as afsd for the purpose of recovering the sum of 120 dollars 42 cents secured to be paid by a common promissory note … given by the confession of the said Defendants and was entered up and enrolled against them as admin and admstx afsd for the sum of 170 and 42 cents debt and 20 dollars 11 cents cost all which will more fully appear ref being had to a certified copy of the said record herewith filed as a part of this Bill and marked Exhibit B.
… Your orators further shew unto your Honors that Richard Sadler Esqr then Sher of York Dist on the 4th day of Oct 1808 … by virtue of some pretended or supposed authority devised from or under the said judgment sold a tract of land which the said John Martin decd … possessed containing 300 acres … in the Dist and State afsd on the waters of Bullocks Creek adjoining the lands of Elnathan Davis deceased of William Smith and others, at which sale so made was afsd one of the Defts William Smith became the purchaser at the price and for the sum of 1000 dollars or thereabouts …. your orators are informed obtained titles for the same … your orators charge that said tract of land was at that time well worth and would have sold for seven or eight thousand dollars if the same had been legally and fairly exposed to sale. And they further shew unto your Honors that the said William Smith has held possession of the said tract of land ever since his purchase until very lately when he as your orator is informed and believe sold and conveyed away the same to Robert Latta of the Dist and State afsd and that while in his possession the said tract was very much injured and exhausted by cutting down the timber clearing and cultivation, that the large and abundant crops he raised on the afsd tract of land since his afsd purchase up the the time of his above mentioned sale have been sources of income, wealth, and profit to the said Deft. The annual rent of which tract of land one year with another your orators charge to be well worth 500 dollars per annum.
… your orators further shew unto your Honors that notwithstanding all three of the said administrators were jointly entrusted in and charged with the administration of the said estate, yet the said Elizabeth Martin performed few or now acts as administratrix as afsd. But being confined with the care and troubles of a then helpless and infant family, trusted the whole management of the estate either to the said Joseph Palmer or the said James Martin or to both of them jointly.
And they further shew that throughout the whole course of admin upon the said estate the said admins acted under the counsel, advice, direction and superintendence of the said William Smith who was at that time and for a consideration after an iminent counsil and practicing lawyer in the Courts of this State residing at York Court House.
… your orators further … unto your honors that they … charge that the sale by the said Richard Sadler as Sher afsd of the said tract of land, and the purchase by the said William Smith are absolutely null and void in as much as the said admins at the time of the sale afsd had assets of the personal estate in their hands more than sufficient to have paid off the said judgment and inasmuch as the sheriff had no legal authority to sell the said tract of land.
… further shew unto your Honors that the said tract of land although it was represented at the time of the said sale as containing only 300 acres. Yet in fact your orators charge that it contained a third more and would have sold for a considerably greater sum of the real quantity had been known.
… your orators further shew unto your Honors that the said tract of land so purchased by the said William Smith was by far the most valuable and susceptible of improvement and increase of value of not only of all the several tracts of land of which the said John Martin decd seized and possessed, but was also more valuable and capable of improvement than any part of the personal estate of the said intestate.
… your orators further shew unto your honor that there was no necessity for sacrificing the said tract of land for cash at Sher sale, but the same was advised and procured and had and made under the express direction of the said William Smith who as your orators are informed and believe some short time previous to the sale afsd by the Sher afsd went upon and secured the said tract of land with an intention of having it sold and becoming a purchaser himself.
… they further shew unto your Honors that the said admins were ignorant that it was both illegal and unjust that the said tract of land should be sold by the authority for purposes and in the manner above set forth and depended entirely upon the counsel and advice of the said William Smith as their attorney as above state and that it was by means of the capacity in which the said William stood in relation to the said admins and the estate that he became acquainted with the value of the said tract of land and the affairs of the estate.

That he entered the service of the United States under the following named officers and served as herein stated. He was drafted in York District South Carolina for three months under Capt. Robt. McA’Fee [Robert McAfee] and was marched under him and Col. Thomas Neal1 to Oconee river in Georgia thence to Ogeechee near Phillips’ Fort where they staid about a month thence was marched home and was discharged by Capt. McA’fee having served as a private horseman finding his own horse three months. This to the best of his knowledge recollection was in the Autumn of 1776.
In the Spring of 1779 he volunteered at York aforesaid under Capt. McCullough [most likely William McCullough or McCulloch] & was marched under him & Major Ross [Francis or Frank Ross] to Savannah River opposite to Augusta Georgia, and there joined General. Williams [Andrew Williamson] __ also a Regiment of Regulars but does not recollect the names of the officers except Thomas Prince a Lieutenant who was afterwards wounded at Stono & died, was marched from there to Briar Creek in Georgia where he joined Genl.

Thomas Neel 1730-1779, commanded the New Acquisition (York Co., S.C.) militia regiment. He was killed at the Battle of Stono June 20, 1779.
“Phillips Fort” could either refer to Joel Phillips’ or Zachariah Phillips’ Fort, both frontier forts in Wilkes County (now Elbert County), Georgia, and built by former North Carolinians Joel and Zachariah Phillips, respectively, Colonel Samuel Elbert visited one or both of these forts in 1777. Joel Phillips’ Fort probably stood near Kettle Creek on the north side of the Little River, while Zachariah Phillips’ Fort probably stood at the mouth of Lick Creek on the south side of the Little River. Indians destroyed Zachariah’s fort in 1780. For sources see Davidson, Wilkes County, I, II, 17. “Order Book of Samuel Elbert …” Collections of the Georgia Historical Society (Savannah, 1902), V. pt.

NOTES – SMITH FAMILY RECORDS IN UNION CO, SC: 

(Note: Drury B. Goyen/Going married Elizabeth Smith (her father was John Smith (son of Abraham Smith) and mother Nancy Chisholm (daughter of Adam Chisholm). Drury is in my direct line, so I had to do the research to sort out who was who. The documents/records I have sorted through are listed below for me to sort through all the John Smiths in the area, these include the records I have transcribed – or plan on transcribing – that are listed below.

The John Smith who married Nancy Chisholm is the John Smith that lived on/had land on Thickety Creek and Gilkeys Creek – this is the area where his father Abraham Smith had purchased land.  Nancy Chisholm’s father, Adam Chisholm, moved from Virginia with a John Watson and together purchased 430 acres of land from John Grindol in or around 1786 on both sides of the Pacolate River in nearby Grindol Shoals).

… these Defendants state that in time that Adam Chisholm died many years ago having the four children enumerated in the will … the Defendant did not know whether he died intestated.
The Defendant Wm B Nott says that his father ___ Nott, under whom he claims, as he is informed bought ___ of the land which he supposes the complts refer to, from the late Henry Farnandis and the Defendant Elizabeth Farnandis states that her late husband, the said Henry, having purchased, claimed the whole of the tract while he held the whole & the half after he divided with Judge Nott, adversely to the claim of the complainants.
The Defendants plead that they and them under whom they claim have had an adverse and ___ possession of the land, example the complainants claims for about ? and claim the complt of the statute of limitations.
The Defendant Wm B Nott states that he is informed by his father, that some years before he bought any part of the land, and while John Chisholme lived on it, he (John Chisholm) offered to sell it to him and showed him a deed which his father Adam Chisholm had made him of it.
And the Defendant Farnandis states, that in the division of her husbands estate, that part of the land in question which he retained was assigned to their daughter Catherine Farnandis now the wife of Jos L Lines as whose guardian Deft held it until her ward attained majority. When she ____ it to her and this ____
That the partition of her husbands estate was by ____ in the court of equity in this district, open and public, and no counter claim was put ___ states that some years ago, in her husband’s lifetime, the said complainants as she is informed brought suit against him for the land, which suit they abandoned & let drop & that her husband has been dead now within about 4 months of 6 years.
1829 June 20 … And the said defendants in answer to the complainants amendment, or so much thereof as they are advised is material for them to answer, state that they have never considered themselves as tenants in common with the complainants, but on the contrary they and them under whom they claim have set up an adverse claim to the complainants, as they have stated in their answer to the original bill.
These defendants state, that of their own knowledge they know but little of the case, or the manner of acquiring title by the complainants or them under whom they claim and they therefor require the complainants to make out their case by strict proof. … Defendants insist upon the matters of defense as contained in their original answer which they consider as fully meeting complainants amendment and pray to be dismissed with their costs etc.

1820 March 7 – Obediah Chisholm to Henry Fernandez bk Q, p 313 Union Co, SC
… I Obediah Chisholm of Union District and State aforesaid in consideration of 250 dollars to me in hand paid by Henry Farnandis of the District and State aforesaid … sell and release unto the said Henry Farnandis all my right and title to that tract of land whereon my Father Adam Chisholm decd formerly lived on Pacolet River …

John H Farnandis appeared personally before me and made oath that he saw Obediah Chisholm sign and acknowledge the within deeds to Henry Farnandiz for the use and purpose within mentioned and that himself and Clabourn Lawrence. Feb 12, 1821.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-C34J-RS42-F?i=458&cat=340217

(NOTE: These deeds plus the testimony of William B. Nott – son of Judge Nott – indicate that Genl. Dawkins, Henry Farnandis, and Judge Nott had purchased the land owned by Adam Chisholm from three of the heirs of Adam Chisholm decd – Judge Nott had purchased John Chisholm’s deed, Genl. Dawkins purchased John Chisholm’s rights in his father’s land, and Henry Farnandis had purchased Obediah Chisholm’s rights in his father’s land, and Samuel Chisholm had been paid cash for his part of his father’s estate according to the accounting that was eventually filed by General Dawkins). 

(NOTE: It appears the administrator forgot to pay one of the legatees – Nancy Chisholm daughter of Adam Chisholm, decd. Nancy Chisholm had married John Smith – John & Nancy Smith filed suit in 1823, then Henry Farnandis dies. John Smith and wife allow the lawsuit to be dropped afterwards. They then refile in 1829. John Smith and Nancy Chisholm Smith eventually appear to have moved to Alabama by 1834 and the lawsuit is then dropped again. 

My take on what happened is the administrator Genl. Elijah Dawkins realized he messed up. It appears that either Genl. Dawkins or Henry Farnandis – who was a prominent lawyer in the area when he was alive – sold a portion of Adam Chisholm’s land to Judge Nott. So you have General Dawkins, Judge Nott, and Henry Farnandis Esqr all who have or have had possession of the land of Adam Chisholm decd’s estate where the title is is not clear. They cannot admit they messed up like this (a General, a Judge, and lawyer) – so they likely were looking to gather the money to settle Nancy Chisholm Smith’s case – which is what appears happened according to a later lawsuit in Mississippi. 

Remember, the Equity case says John Smith in 1829 is poor – based on the land transactions of brothers John Smith, Joseph Smith, and Moses Smith, it appears they were attempting to form some kind of company/organization, and they each took out thousands of dollars in several loans – secured by their inheritance rights in their father’s land – the economy must have gone wrong somewhere along the line and suddenly you see several lawsuits against brothers John Smith and Joseph Smith – I don’t think they were “poor” in the literal sense, but they were in debt due to some bad business outcomes – so Nancy’s claim that her husband was “poor” in her filings just states his current condition considering all the lawsuits he had against him at that time.

Some time between 1824 to 1827 Elizabeth Smith, daughter of John Smith and Nancy Smith, marries Drury Goyen (Going). In 1839 Drury Goyen is involved in litigation in Lowndes County, MS. In one of his pleadings he indicates that his wife Elizabeth had received slaves from her father via John Fernandis of Union Co, SC who had purchased the slaves for her, and she had later sold them in a series of transactions making around $2000 and that this is all she has left from her father John Smith’s gift to her.

This gives the appearance that John Farnandis – son of Henry Farnandis – purchased and delivered the slave(s) as part of a settlement of Nancy’s lawsuit regarding her inheritance rights.  John Smith and wife Nancy then move to Alabama by the Fall of 1833 – (this is where Drury Goyen moves to with Elizabeth, receiving several land grants between 1837-39 in Pickens Co, AL).  John Smith and wife Nancy let the lawsuit in Union Co, SC die out. It appears John Farnandis purchased the slave(s) for Elizabeth Smith, daughter of Nancy Chisholm Smith, as part of a settlement and having settled the case, they no longer pursue it. This way there is no judgment on record showing that Genl. Dawkins, Judge Nott, and Henry Farnandis had made any mistake, and Nancy Chisholm Smith gets her inheritance which she passes on at least part of her inheritance to her daughter Elizabeth Smith Goyen. This series of transactions and filings give the appearance that the case was settled with no admission of guilt being filed in court).

(NOTE:

(NOTE: It appears the administrator forgot to pay one of the legatees – Nancy Chisholm daughter of Adam Chisholm, decd. Nancy Chisholm had married John Smith – John & Nancy Smith filed suit in 1823, then Henry Farnandis dies. John Smith and wife allow the lawsuit to be dropped afterwards. They then refile in 1829. John Smith and Nancy Chisholm Smith eventually appear to have moved to Alabama by 1834 and the lawsuit is then dropped again. 

My take on what happened is the administrator Genl. Elijah Dawkins realized he messed up. It appears that either Genl. Dawkins or Henry Farnandis – who was a prominent lawyer in the area when he was alive – sold a portion of Adam Chisholm’s land to Judge Nott. So you have General Dawkins, Judge Nott, and Henry Farnandis Esqr all who have or have had possession of the land of Adam Chisholm decd’s estate where the title is is not clear. They cannot admit they messed up like this (a General, a Judge, and lawyer) – so they likely were looking to gather the money to settle Nancy Chisholm Smith’s case – which is what appears happened according to a later lawsuit in Mississippi. 

Remember, the Equity case says John Smith in 1829 is poor. Some time between 1827 to 1829 Elizabeth Smith, daughter of John Smith and Nancy Smith, marries a Drury Goyen (Going). In 1839 Drury Goyen is involved in litigation in Lowndes County, MS. In one of his pleadings he indicates that his wife Elizabeth had received slaves from her father via John Fernandis of Union Co, SC who had purchased the slaves for her, and she had later sold them in a series of transactions making around $2000 and that this is all she has left from her father John Smith.

This gives the appearance that John Farnandis – son of Henry Farnandis – purchased and delivered the slave(s) as a settlement.  John Smith and wife Nancy then move to Alabama by 1833-34 – (this is where Drury Goyen moves to with Elizabeth, receiving several land grants between 1837-39 in Pickens Co, AL).  John Smith and wife Nancy let the lawsuit in Union Co, SC die out. It appears John Farnandis purchased the slave(s) for Elizabeth Smith, daughter of Nancy Chisholm Smith, as part of a settlement and having settled the case, they no longer pursue it. This way there is no judgment on record showing that Genl. Dawkins, Judge Nott, and Henry Farnandis had made any mistake, and Nancy Chisholm Smith gets her inheritance which she passes on at least part of her inheritance to her daughter Elizabeth Smith Goyen. This series of transactions and filings give the appearance that the case was settled with no admission of guilt being filed in court).

Includes NotesNotes for David Chisholme:
ID: I0194
Name: David CHISHOLME
Sex: M
Birth: 1728 in Hanover County, Virginia
Death: 1809 in Louisa County, Virginia
Note:
Copied from the book “THE CHISZ” A HISTORY OF THE CHISHOLME/CHISM FAMILY” by John D. Chism, Jr. Library of Congress Catalog Card Number 89-83324. Copyright 1989.
David Chisholme, as far as can be determined, was the second living son of Adam Chisholme of Hanover County, Virginia. David was born in Hanover County circa 1728, about twelve years after his father’s arrival as a Jacobite prisoner. He lived in Hanover and Louisa Counties all his life and very near his brother, Walter. Walter lived ONLY in Hanover County for he so stated in his war records. When Walter applied for a pension on his Revolutionary War service he stated in the application that he was born in Hanover County in 1732 and that he had lived there all his life. The records that are still in existence in Hanover and Louisa Counties confirm that these two men were brothers. Both of these men lived to a ripe old age. While David was approximately eighty at the time of his death, Walter lived for more than one hundred years.
At first, David lived in that portion of Hanover that was very near the Hanover and Louisa County line and very near his brother, Walter. He later sold this estate and moved across the line into Louisa County. This was 1786. After the move, he was still relatively close to his brother as the records and their activities will verify. Not only were the brothers very close in their relationships but so were their children. There is no wonder that the blood clustering characteristic proved so effective in tracing their family members. Their family members shared many of their activities together. These close family ties are exemplified time and again through the Chisholm family history.
By the time David moved into Louisa County, his older children, ‘Blind’ John, Mary and Adam had already married and had migrated to South Carolina. Walter also had a son named John. However, Walter’s son remained in Hanover County. He lived near St. Martin’s Jumping Swamp, apart of the Taylor’s Creek Community and near his father and their close friend Mr. John Anderson. He was there in 1790 while David’s Son, John, was in Spartanburg County, South Carolina. As a matter of fact, in 1786 the year that David moved from Hanover to Louisa County, his son, Adam, moved from Halifax County, near David’s brother, William, to Union County, South Carolina. This move was made with a close friend, John Watson. At the conclusion of this move Adam and his older brother, ‘Blind’ John, formed a blood cluster in the Grindal Shoals area of Union and Spartanburg Counties and there lived for twenty years within ten miles of each other. In the meantime, their sister, Mary, and her husband, James Lee, lived approximately twenty-five miles away in Rutherford County, North Carolina.
David’s younger children, Thomas, David Jr., and Ann remained in the home or very near their father until after his death about 1806-1807 in Louisa County. After the death of their father the sons, Thomas and David Jr. immediately moved to South Carolina, also. David Jr. was in South Carolina by 1809 and “baby sitted” Thomas’ children while Thomas made the move in 1810. When these two younger sons moved to South Carolina, they located in Chester County approximately 30 miles east of their older brothers, ‘Blind’ John and Adam. At the time these two brothers made their move or shortly thereafter, they were joined by Suprey Chisholme, a cousin. He was a grandson of Walter. Suprey was not only a cousin. He was also Thomas’ son-in-law. All three of these relatives remained in Chester, South Carolina and died there. The blood cluster that these three formed was later joined by several other relatives from Virginia specifically Walter’s descendants and Thomas’ son and son-in-law.
Chester County is bordered to the north by York County where the older brother, ‘Blind’ John, lived for several years, about fifteen years to be exact, and where half of his twelve children were born before he moved to Spartanburg County and the Grindal Shoals community near Adam. The west side of Chester County is bordered by Union County where Adam settled after moving from Halifax County, Virginia in 1786, and where Adam died in 1816.
In the deeds of Augusta County, Virginia: “November 25, 1775 – William Graves conveys to David Chisholm of Hanover County, Virginia, 400 acres on both sides of Goochland Road and branches of Beaver Dam Fork of Muchunk Creek”. This was when David purchased his new estate in Louisa County just across the Hanover/Louisa County line. He, however, never moved onto this estate until some ten years later. It was about 1786 before he actually moved into Louisa County.
Goochland Road led south to Goochland County which bordered Hanover and Louisa Counties to the south. Goochland County, keep this county in mind for it appears again in the chapter dealing with Thomas’ family.
In the 1782 census for Hanover County, Virginia, David Chisholm is recorded with (7) whites and (8) slaves. The whites are: David, Ann (his wife), his sons, Thomas and David Jr., and his daughter Ann. The other two at this time are not accounted for. They, however, are more than likely his grandchildren. They are very likely the smaller children of his son, Adam, who about this time, was moving from Hanover County into Halifax County near the blood cluster of David’s older brother, William.

The above power of attorney confirms the fact that David by May 3, 1787 had already moved into Louisa County. It also proves the fact that life was lived at a much slower pace. David wrote this affidavit on May 3, 1787 and gave it to his brother, possibly sometime later, to be filed in the Hanover County courts. However, Walter did not have this affidavit recorded and filed until some ten months later on March 7, 1788.
From the Louisa County records, Thomas Chisholm is recorded as having married Miss Sarah Dabney (Darbney) in 1787. Thomas is the last of David’s sons to marry. From all available records, David Jr. never married (NOTE: deed records show he married a Rachel – who must have died prior to David’s death, and must not have had any issue as no heirs are mentioned). His will further confirms this. In his will, there is no mention of any wife or children. Furthermore, he leaves all his possessions to his cousin, Suprey, his sister, Ann Colley (the Ann below), his brother, Thomas, who executed his will and to his niece, Patsey Dabney Chisholme, who he described as being “the youngest daughter of Thomas by his first marriage”. Thomas’ second wife’s name was Elizabeth M.
We have often spoken of the old Scottish tradition of naming the offsprings for “Traceability”. The young lady here is a classic example and proof of that tradition. Miss Patsey Dabney Chisholme was the last of Thomas’ children by his first wife, Miss Sarah Dabney. Examples of this “traceability” will be seen many times before this book is complete.
From the Virginia State Archives, Louisa County records:
Appraisement of the estate of Ann Chisholm, 9th December 1800 by Joseph Isbell, John Burnley, J. Sharp. Recorded 12th day of January 1801.
This appraisal of Ann’s only consisted of eight to ten items which were household and personal effects. They were most definitely items that Ann valued and set apart as being solely hers. This appraisal also affirms the fact that Ann, David’s wife, died around November of 1800. This proof of her death definitely put her out of contention as being the Ann that witnessed and proved the following will. The Ann who proved the following will of Mr. Anderson on Wednesday the 17th of December 1800 is the daughter of David and his wife, Ann. This daughter, Ann, was then unmarried and was most likely David’s youngest child. She is the Ann Colley that her brother, David, named in his will which he wrote in Chester County, South Carolina.

The two brothers, Walter and David, and all their younger children are executing and witnessing the will of Mr. Anderson: Thomas, David Jr., and Ann the three youngest children of David’s and Walter’s youngest children Sally and Walter Jr. A close study of this will reflects in part the affluence of the Chisholm family as was discussed earlier. Mr. John Anderson who called himself a friend of the Chisholm’s was a close neighbor to Walter, keep in mind David had already moved several miles away into Louisa County, and a man of considerable means as his will verifies even though his estate was not appraised. Secondly, the two brothers are men of statue in the community and well respected as the title (Esq.) affords. Their age could possibly contribute to this title. Also, in signing the will, there was not a mark {X} of the illiterate placed on it not even by the women.
Again, this verifies the fact that these two brothers lived close to each other even though they lived in two different counties and maintained a very close relationship. Ann, had to have spent the night with her uncle, Walter, the day before she and her cousins, Sally and Walter Jr. made the trip to the county seat to “prove” the will in court. Also, she and her cousins had to have spent the night in the town of Hanover after “proving” the will for it would not have been possible for them to have made the approximate forty mile round trip to Hanover and back the same day.
There is one item the spelling of David and Walter’s name that should be noted. The writer of the will spelled their name CHISHOLM. However, the younger members signed and spelled their name CHISHOLME. They used the indicative “E” at the end. The writer of the will definitely knew how both the younger and the older generations spelled the name. In the chapter dealing with David Jr. we will see who actually wrote the will. Even the Clerk of Court recorded the younger ones’ name as CHISHOLM when Ann, Sally, and Walter Jr. proved the will. This indicates it was they who signed their names and not the person who wrote the will. Some members of this third generation carried the CHISHOLME spelling into Chester County, South Carolina while some of the older third generation members used the CHISHOLM spelling in Union and Spartanburg Counties.
One fact that may help to clarify the location as to where David lived concerns a court case in 1803 in which he was the defendant. He paid his two younger sons, Thomas and David Jr. in addition to several other people for their expense to travel “twenty miles” to Louisa, the county seat, to testify for him. In checking the map, twenty miles from the city of Louisa would place David’s place of residence very near the Louisa and Hanover County line. It would very possibly place him within three miles of the line depending how far north or south he lived.

From these two estate sales, can be seen the camaraderie and closeness of this Chisholm family. In what can be considered a social/business climate, the children of Walter and David are circulating about the community picking up on the latest gossip and a few bargains. These younger children of both David and Walter, who have already been established as such, can be seen together at an estate sale. However, Hugh Chisholm is a new one. This Hugh Chisholm is also the son of Walter. This was proved by the 1830 census. In that census, Hugh is recorded in Hanover County and in the household with him is his father, Walter. In the home with him was an older male between the years of 90-100. Even though Walter is recorded in this census as merely a statistic there is no denying the fact that it was him. Walter is the only male Chisholm of this era and very likely the only male in the entire county of Hanover to attain such an age.
ALBEMARLE COUNTY CENSUS 1800:
William Chisholm, Isham Chisholm, Mulkins Chisholm, Brice Chisholm and Hugh Chisholm were living in Albemarle County at the time the 1800 census was recorded. These Chisholm’s were all sons of Walter Chisholm. Mukins was the father of Suprey who migrated to South Carolina with Thomas and David Jr. in 1809-1810. Walter’s children will be dealt with in more detail later in this book.
