(NOTES:  Which David Chisholm is this? This question leads to clues about Adam Chisholm of Union Co, SC)

First, David Chisholm Sr, from Hanover Co, Va, dies in 1805 according to Louisa County, Va Chancery Court records – see 1805 transactions below on this page. So this is not David Chisholm Sr. 

David Chisholm Jr, from Hanover Co, Va is alive and well after 1792 and involved in many land transactions in Louisa Co, Va – see this page below. David Chisholm Jr – son of David Chisholm Sr – moves to Chester County, South Carolina and dies there in 1815 (see transactions below) according to his probate paperwork. So this is not either one of those two David Chisholms. 

I believe this David Chisholm is a son of Adam Chisholm. He has a brother in 1792 that is not 10 years old yet, and he makes his distributions hold until Samuel Chisholm reaches the age of 10 – which appear to happen in 1797, meaning Samuel Chisholm was born in 1787. Additionally, this David Chisholm’s will indicates he has 1 sister (singular). Adam Chisholm has one daughter – Nancy Chisholm. 

Most of the distributions appear to go through Adam Chisholm – even though he is not a named executor. The executors of David Chisholm’s estate go through Adam Chisholm in most of these transactions. It is possible that Adam Chisholm gave his older children their share of his estate before he died – when it appears some may have moved out of the area.  This may have been what led to the confusion of the executors of Adam Chisholm’s estate when they did not distribute Nancy Chisholm’s share of her estate to her.  They may have assumed she had already received her part of Adam Chisholm’s estate.  This division of older and younger children leads me to believe Adam Chisholm had a 2d wife – leading to the division in ages of his children. The older children may have received an inheritance from their mother’s side of the family upon her death – and Adam Chisholm may have given them their share of the estate early as they married and started their own families.

The distributions from the David Chisholm estate starting in 1797 plus Adam Chisholm’s estate in 1817 indicate he has the following children: William Chisholm, David Chisholm, The’s W. Chisholm, who all predecease their father Adam Chisholm – his children alive when Adam dies are named in his estate in 1817 – John Chisholm, Nancy Chisholm, Obediah Chisholm, and Samuel Chisholm. 

In the 1791 will, David Chisholm states his brother, Samuel Chisholm, in 1791, is not yet 10 years of age, and that the will distributions are not to be devised until his brother Samuel Chisholm reaches the age of 10. The distributions occur in 1797 – meaning Samuel Chisholm, brother of David Chisholm was born in 1787. This is the same age as the Samuel Chisholm that is the son of Adam Chisholm – and Adam Chisholm’s estate names Samuel Chisholm as Adam’s son in 1817. 

Additionally, David Chisholm’s will indicates the distribution is to be among his brothers and “sister” – singular – meaning he only has one sister.  Adam Chisholm’s estate shows him to have one daughter – Nancy Chisholm.  

David Chisholm’s will names 2 brothers – Samuel Chisholm b. abt 1787 (meaning he is about 4 years old when David Chisholm dies), and William Chisholm, who is an adult that is to be an executor in the will.  

In 1794-1797 there are several transaction related to slaves that appear related to Adam Chisholm.  Watson Chisholm and Adam Chisholm appear to both purchase the same slave named “Adam” within a few days of eachother from a Fields Blacky. John Watson is the person who purchased the 400 acres on Grindal Shoals with Adam Chisholm. Watson Chisholm appears may be a child of Adam Chisholm, and his first name a hint at who his wife may have been. He appears to have purchased the land with an in-law, and one of his children is named after the Watson family. John Watson Sr appears to be a father-in-law or a brother-in-law of Adam Chisholm.  

Another clue as to a family relationship is the naming of one of Adam Chisholm’s sons as Obediah Chisholm. “Obediah” does not appear to be a family name from the Chisholm side, but Obediah Trimmier is an executor in David Chisholm’s estate. There is likely a family relationship – possibly Obediah Trimmier has married into either the Watson or Chisholm family. Obediah Trimmier’s records seem to show him to be born in the 1760s – so he is younger than Adam Chisholm – but the Trimmier (Trimmyear also) family may also be related to the Chisholm’s by marriage. It appears Adam Chisholm may have named his son after Obadiah Trimmier – as I see no other Obadiah’s in this line of Chisholms.  

In 1797 Adam Chisholm sells a slave to a Watson Chisholm. The sale is witnessed by the executors of David Chisholm’s estate – Obadiah Trimmier and William Chisholm. 

In 1797 the executors of the estate of David Chisholm decd, convey the slave named Fanny to The’s W. Chisholm – this is pursuant to David Chisholm decd’s estate. The’s W. Chisholm is Theophilus Watson Chisholm (same as Watson Chisholm) a sibling of David’s, and as such, appears to be a son of Adam Chisholm.

In 1797 a slave out of David Chisholm’s estate is conveyed to Nancy Chisholm, daughter of Adam Chisholm – she is still a minor at this time.

This also calls into question the commonly listed age of this Adam Chisholm. He appears to be older than what is listed by most researchers – meaning he may be a brother of David Chisholm Sr – not his son – continued research may uncover additional clues).

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.

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.
