Mrs. Rhoda Going Kilpatrick applied to the Union District Court of Common Pleas February 19, 1806 for a peace bond to be placed on her husband Adam Kilpatrick to protect her from “bodily harm” at his hands, according to court records researched by Louis B. Wood.

The 1800 census of Union District enumerates the household of Adam Kilpatrick:

“Kilpatrick, Adam white male 26-45
white female 45 & up
white male 0-10
white female 0-10
white female 0-10”

Adam Kilpatrick is shown in the census in the following order: five households above–James Spillars, Frederic Isen, Joseph Howard, Isaac Hawkins and George Boren–then Adam Kilpatrick, then 5 below–Alexander McDonald, John Bogan, John Eubanks, James Martin and William Comer.

In the 1810 census of Union District Adam Kilpatrick is incorrectly shown as “Robin” Kilpatrick in the index. By looking at the actual record, I determined it was really Adam but the transcriber put down “Robin” [perhaps Robin was a middle name.]:

Kilpatrick, Robin white male over 45
white female 26-45
white male 16-26
white male 10-16
white female 10-16
white male 10-16
white female 10-16
white male 0-10
white male 0-10
white female 0-10
white male 0-10

He and his neighbors were shown in the following order: Jacob Harrison, William Harrison, Samuel Henry, Charles Humphrey and Jesse Hughes—Kilpatrick—then Anthony Leek, John Roger and Paul Maze.

In the 1820 census of Jasper County, Georgia Adam Kilpat-rick and wife are shown with one young son, under 10.

In 1824 Adam Kilpatrick was married to Jane Smith in New-ton County, Georgia.

In the 1830 census of Newton County Adam Kilpatrick is enumerated as:

“Kilpatrick, Adam white male 80-90
white female 40-50 [Jane Smith]
white male 15-20”

In the 1840 census of Newton County, Adam Kilpatrick is enumerated as:

“Kilpatrick, Adam white male 80-90
white female 40-50”

In 1850 the household was enumerated as:

“Kilpatrick, Adam 105, pauper, born in Ireland
Jane 70, born in GA

It is suggested that Adam Kilpatrick h Adam Kilpatrick Notes.

1800 Union Co census shows Adam Kilpatrick (26 to 45), 1 female (45 and up), 1 male under 10, 2 females under 10. He is shown in the following order, 5 above James Spillars, Frederic Isen, Joseph Howard, Isaac Hawkins, George Borer?, then Adam Kilpatrick, then 5 below, Alexander McDonald, John Bogan, John Eubanks, James Martin, William Comer.

In 1810 Union Co Adam is incorrectly shown as “Robin” Kilpatrick in the index. By looking at the actual record I determined it was really Adam but the transcriber put down Robin – due to bad writing, hard to read etc on the census record. In 1810 Adam is shown as age 45 and up, and now there is a female age 26 to 45. There are also 3 males under 10, 2 males 10 to 16, 1 male 16 to 26, 1 female under 10, and 2 females 10 to 16. He is shown in the following order Jacob Harrison, William Harrison, Samuel Henry, Charles Humphrey, Jesse Hughes, Adam Kilpatrick, Anthony Leek, John Roger, Paul Maze??, end of page. Further up the page there are 3 Haney families, 2 Gregory’s and 2 Garretts.

In 1820 Adam and wife are shown in Jasper Co Ga with one young son, under 10. In 1824 Adam married Jane Smith in Newton Co GA. (need to recheck this)

In 1830 Adam is shown in Newton Co GA age 80 to 90 with wife Jane Smith age 40 to 50, and one male age 15 to 20, probably the same young male shown in the 1820 Jasper Co census. (need to recheck the ages)

In 1840 Newton Co GA Adam and Jane Smith are shown age 80 to 90 and 40 to 50 respectively with no other people in the household.

In 1850 Newton Co GA, Adam is shown age 105 pauper born in Ireland, and wife Jane Smith is age 70 born in GA.

So maybe Adam had his first 3 children by Elizabeth Bogan, 1 male, and 2 females all born between 1790 and 1800, and these are the older children on the 1810 census. Then there are an additional 5 sons and an additional 2 daughters on the 1810 census, maybe by Rhoda Going. This would make a total of 6 sons and 3 daughters. Of course Adam could have had more children by previous wives in Ireland.

From a website on the family of John Bogan:
The last will of John Bogan was dated 28 November 1803 and was proved in Union County SC on 21 Dec 1805. The will implies there may be additional daughters who are not named in the will but following relationships are:

Wife or widow not mentioned so presumed dead
Son: Isaac Bogan
Daughters and deceased daughters
Elizabeth Kilpatrick’s minors
Granddaughter: Elizabeth Craddock
Grandson: Valentine Bogan
Others, relationship not stated:
Nevil Holcomb
Adam Kilpatrick
Executor: John Bell
Witnesses: Solomon Sparm, William Rountree
When her father, John Bogan, wrote his will on 28 Novembe 1803, Elizabeth Bogan Kilpatrick was deceased, leaving minor children, who were not named in John Bogan’s will. Adam Kilpatrick was mentioned but his relationship was not defined. (NOTE: maybe this Adam is Adam Jr., a grandson of John Bogan. Per the 1800 census for Adam Kilpatrick, there was 1 male under 10, 2 females under 10, 1 male 26 t0 45, 1 female 45 and up.)

Adam Kilpatrick Notes (South Carolina) (“UN” indicates files or microfilm reels at SC archives for Union County)

UN 35 – the naturalization petition of Adam Kilpatrick in 1812, states he was a native of Ireland and had been in this “country” since June 1790. Note – the petition itself has the date 1786 crossed out. From looking at records he was in Union County by June 1790 – he had almost immediate dealings there almost since the day he supposedly arrived in this country. And he could hardly land in Charleston, the closest port in June 1790, and be somewhat established in Union County several days later. Therefore I think maybe he arrived several years earlier and lived in Union “County” not “this Country” from June 1790 til he petitioned for naturalization in 1812. Need to check records for War of 1812.

UN 21 – court of common pleas index shows a “Kilpatrick Iss’s? exer Thomas Gilham” – looks like a Thomas Gilham admistered the estate of a Kilpatrick, but could not make out the name. This was from the index. When I requested the file itself they could not find it and stated they knew some of their files were lost or missing. That’s too bad, this one might have really helped.

UN 21 – other references which may or may not mean anything. Index shows Samuel Chandler and John Tomblain. The Chandler and Tomblin surnames later show up in GA. Thomas Kirkpatrick and Fleming Harris, and Kirkpatrick, Hall and Co and A W Thomson. These Kirkpatricks appear later on in the 1800s in the Union SC records and may not have any connection to the early Kilpatricks. Actually Adam and his family appear to be the only Klpatricks in early Union Records.

There are lots of Bogan records in Union Distr. Adam Kilpatrick married a Bogan.

UN 2 – Deed Index
– Benjamin Holcomb to Nevil Holcomb – 1794 (Nevil Holcomb is mentioned in John Bogan’s will, father of Elizabeth Bogan Kilpatrick)
– Jesse Holcomb to Adam Kilpatrick – 1806
– Jesse Holcomb to an Edwards – 1820 (the “Edwards” name is interesting in that the land Thomas Kilpatrick got in Newton Co Ga was originally drawn by a Wm. Edwards of Jones Co GA, and Thomas apparently lost some land in St. Clair Co AL to a Mr. Edwards) – 1820
– Nevil Holcomb to H.H. Holcomb – 1828
– Jesse “ to Jesse “ Jr. – 1831
– Adam Kilpatrick to Hannah Heath – 1794
– Adam Kilpatrick & Alexander McDonald – 1797
– Adam Kilpatrick & Samuel Chandler – 1815
– Adam Kilpatrick & William Tomblin – 1822
– John Kirkpatrick & John Thomas – 1828 (could this be John Davis Kilpatrick?)
– John Kirkpatrick and I McIver – 1828

UN 7 – Deed Index
– Adam Kilpatrick & Avery Holcomb and wife – 1806
– Adam Kilpatrick & Jesse Holcomb – 1806
– James Kirkpatrick & James Anderson – 1828
– James Kirkpatrick & James Thomson – 1828
– James Kirkpatrick & Thomas McIver – 1831 (both James and John Kirkpatrick had dealings with McIvers, see above, so possible connection here)

UN 23 – Adam Kilpatrick, disposition/peace warrant, 1806.

Feb 8, 1815 Adam Kilpatrick of County of Putnam, State of GA, for $100 from Samuel Chandler of Union Dist.SC, sold 100 acres in Union District on the waters of Fair Forest, Ress Edward’s line, Mr. Smith’s Corner, adjoining Tomlin’s land to Jesse Clark’s line. Witnessed by Theophilus Goodyear. (NOTE: this may be Adam Kilpatrick Jr., the one who later married Mary Johnson in Putnam Co in 1824. Adam Sr. married Jane Smith in Newton Co in 1824. The Adam in this deed may be the son of Adam and Elizabeth Bogan).

21 Dec, 1822 – Deed says Adam Kilpatrick of Union SC (indicates the older Adam stayed in SC longer and left for GA later than Adam Jr) sells to William Tomblin for $100 50 acres where he now lives – corner of Jesse Clark through Ress Edward’s line, witnessed by Thomas O’Neal and Jesse Clark. This deed was recorded in 1822, although it was dated 2 Nov 1815. So maybe Adam Jr. left for GA in Feb 1815, and Adam Sr. left in Nov 1815? This older Adam appears in the 1820 Jasper Co GA census, however I have never found the younger Adam and Mary Johnson in any censuses of GA, so maybe they left GA and went west. Jasper Co GA is also where many of the Bogans from Union District went, as well as some McJunkins.

When her father, John Bogan, wrote his will on 28 Novembe 1803, Elizabeth Bogan Kilpatrick was deceased, leaving minor children, who were not named in John Bogan’s will. Adam Kilpatrick was mentioned but his relationship was not defined. (NOTE: maybe this Adam is Adam Jr., a grandson of John Bogan. Per the 1800 census for Adam Kilpatrick, there was 1 male under 10, 2 females under 10, 1 male 26 t0 45, 1 female 45 and up.)

Adam Kilpatrick Notes (South Carolina) (“UN” indicates files or microfilm reels at SC archives for Union County)

UN 35 – the naturalization petition of Adam Kilpatrick in 1812, states he was a native of Ireland and had been in this “country” since June 1790. Note – the petition itself has the date 1786 crossed out. From looking at records he was in Union County by June 1790 – he had almost immediate dealings there almost since the day he supposedly arrived in this country. And he could hardly land in Charleston, the closest port in June 1790, and be somewhat established in Union County several days later. Therefore I think maybe he arrived several years earlier and lived in Union “County” not “this Country” from June 1790 til he petitioned for naturalization in 1812. Need to check records for War of 1812.

UN 21 – court of common pleas index shows a “Kilpatrick Iss’s? exer Thomas Gilham” – looks like a Thomas Gilham admistered the estate of a Kilpatrick, but could not make out the name. This was from the index. When I requested the file itself they could not find it and stated they knew some of their files were lost or missing. That’s too bad, this one might have really helped.

UN 21 – other references which may or may not mean anything. Index shows Samuel Chandler and John Tomblain. The Chandler and Tomblin surnames later show up in GA. Thomas Kirkpatrick and Fleming Harris, and Kirkpatrick, Hall and Co and A W Thomson. These Kirkpatricks appear later on in the 1800s in the Union SC records and may not have any connection to the early Kilpatricks. Actually Adam and his family appear to be the only Klpatricks in early Union Records.

There are lots of Bogan records in Union Distr. Adam Kilpatrick married a Bogan.

UN 23 – Adam Kilpatrick, disposition/peace warrant, 1806.

Feb 8, 1815 Adam Kilpatrick of County of Putnam, State of GA, for $100 from Samuel Chandler of Union Dist.SC, sold 100 acres in Union District on the waters of Fair Forest, Ress Edward’s line, Mr. Smith’s Corner, adjoining Tomlin’s land to Jesse Clark’s line. Witnessed by Theophilus Goodyear. (NOTE: this may be Adam Kilpatrick Jr., the one who later married Mary Johnson in Putnam Co in 1824. Adam Sr. married Jane Smith in Newton Co in 1824. The Adam in this deed may be the son of Adam and Elizabeth Bogan).

21 Dec, 1822 – Deed says Adam Kilpatrick of Union SC (indicates the older Adam stayed in SC longer and left for GA later than Adam Jr) sells to William Tomblin for $100 50 acres where he now lives – corner of Jesse Clark through Ress Edward’s line, witnessed by Thomas O’Neal and Jesse Clark. This deed was recorded in 1822, although it was dated 2 Nov 1815. So maybe Adam Jr. left for GA in Feb 1815, and Adam Sr. left in Nov 1815? This older Adam appears in the 1820 Jasper Co GA census, however I have never found the younger Adam and Mary Johnson in any censuses of GA, so maybe they left GA and went west. Jasper Co GA is also where many of the Bogans from Union District went, as well as some McJunkins.

1800 Union Co census shows Adam Kilpatrick (26 to 45), 1 female (45 and up), 1 male under 10, 2 females under 10. He is shown in the following order, 5 above James Spillars, Frederic Isen, Joseph Howard, Isaac Hawkins, George Borer?, then Adam Kilpatrick, then 5 below, Alexander McDonald, John Bogan, John Eubanks, James Martin, William Comer.

In 1810 Union Co Adam is incorrectly shown as “Robin” Kilpatrick in the index. By looking at the actual record I determined it was really Adam but the transcriber put down Robin – due to bad writing, hard to read etc on the census record. In 1810 Adam is shown as age 45 and up, and now there is a female age 26 to 45. There are also 3 males under 10, 2 males 10 to 16, 1 male 16 to 26, 1 female under 10, and 2 females 10 to 16. He is shown in the following order Jacob Harrison, William Harrison, Samuel Henry, Charles Humphrey, Jesse Hughes, Adam Kilpatrick, Anthony Leek, John Roger, Paul Maze??, end of page. Further up the page there are 3 Haney families, 2 Gregory’s and 2 Garretts.

In 1820 Adam and wife are shown in Jasper Co Ga with one young son, under 10. In 1824 Adam married Jane Smith in Newton Co GA. (need to recheck this)

In 1830 Adam is shown in Newton Co GA age 80 to 90 with wife Jane Smith age 40 to 50, and one male age 15 to 20, probably the same young male shown in the 1820 Jasper Co census. (need to recheck the ages)

In 1840 Newton Co GA Adam and Jane Smith are shown age 80 to 90 and 40 to 50 respectively with no other people in the household.

In 1850 Newton Co GA, Adam is shown age 105 pauper born in Ireland, and wife Jane Smith is age 70 born in GA.

So maybe Adam had his first 3 children by Elizabeth Bogan, 1 male, and 2 females all born between 1790 and 1800, and these are the older children on the 1810 census. Then there are an additional 5 sons and an additional 2 daughters on the 1810 census, maybe by Rhoda Going. This would make a total of 6 sons and 3 daughters. Of course Adam could have had more children by previous wives in Ireland.

From a website on the family of John Bogan:
The last will of John Bogan was dated 28 November 1803 and was proved in Union County SC on 21 Dec 1805. The will implies there may be additional daughters who are not named in the will but following relationships are:

Wife or widow not mentioned so presumed dead
Son: Isaac Bogan
Daughters and deceased daughters
Elizabeth Kilpatrick’s minors
Granddaughter: Elizabeth Craddock
Grandson: Valentine Bogan
Others, relationship not stated:
Nevil Holcomb
Adam Kilpatrick
Executor: John Bell
Witnesses: Solomon Sparm, William Rountree

ad his first 3 children by Elizabeth Bogan, one male, and two females all born between 1790 and 1800. These are regarded as the older children on the 1810 census.

Elizabeth Bogan Kilpatrick was deceased at the time of the will, leaving minor children, who were not named in John Bogan’s will. Adam Kilpatrick, possibly Adam, Jr, was men-tioned but his relationship was not defined.

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 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.

… 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 …
Signed: Obadiah Chisholm
Wit: J H Farnandiz, Clabourn Lawrence
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.). 

(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).

(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).

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.
From the Virginia State Archives & Hanover County records:
“I do here Constitute and appoint Nathaniel Pope my attorney in Fact and do hereby direct and authorize him to Execute an appeal Bond or Bonds and my own name thereto, to assign and affix and to seal and Deliver the same to the Executors of John Robinson decd. when ever the Executors may obtain a judgement against Parke Goodall and myself the said suit is depending in Hanover County Court in Confirmation whereof I, David Chisholm have here-unto set my Hand & seal this third day of May 1787”.

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. 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.
Hanover County records 1800:
“In the name of God Amen. I, John Anderson, of Hanover County (Taylor’s Creek) being in perfect health and memory of mind yet considering brevity of this frail and transitory life, the certainty of death, and the uncertainty of the manner do make and ordain this to be my last Will and Testament in manner and form following:
Imrimis I give my Soul to God that gave it hoping through the merits of my redeemer Jesus to receive full pardon for all my sins Amen, Blessed be to God. Next I commit my body to earth from whence it was taken in full assurance of its resurrection from thence and as to my burial I desire that it may be in the same manner as my beloved wife was and as to my estate both real and personal, I dispose of it in manner and form following:

I also lend her during her being in a single state the two room being in the west end of my dwelling house called the hall and, study, also the use of all my other houses, also the use of one fourth part of the fruit arising from my orchards of every kind, also one square walnut table and two chairs also her choice of as much land as she may think proper to occupy for cultivation and pasture not exceeding one fourth the enclosed land, with liberty to cut fire wood and timber for repair on the land. I also lend to her the use of Shadroch during her being in single state, but should she marry or die, then my will and desire is Shadroch shall be at liberty and fully free in the same manner that free person are. My further will and desire is that if she should die leaving no child, that the estate before given should return unto my estate and be divided as hereafter mentioned viz: amongst all my children but should she leave living child or children then the estate shall be heired by him or them as the case may be.
Item: I give to my son John B. Anderson the land and plantation whereon I now live (not affecting the interest of Patsey A. Anderson herein before mentioned) also the following negroes viz: Pocon, Fanny and her present and future increases, together with one desk, one folding Table and my couch to him and his heirs forever.

Test: Tho. Pollard DCHC
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.
Louisa County records:

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.
