That when the revolutionary war broke out he was Ensign in Capt Anderson’s Company of Hanover Militia. That he was very frequently drafted and never hired a substitute except once [James Hall, pension application S6946].

He recollects being in no battle.
That to the best of his recollection he served at least six tours and that he was always an Ensign and his service continued at least eight months. That he had a commission but does not recollect by whome it was signed or what has become of it and has no documentary evidence – that he knows of no person whose testimony he can procure to any part of his services and that he cannot procure a clergyman to made the usual certificate.
…….
And that he would refer for his character and reputation to Charles Thompson Jun’r. and James Underwood Esquires.
He hereby relinquishes all claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any state or Teritory.

I have none [record of his age]
To Question 3d
I have always lived in the same neighbourhood
To Question 4th

NOTE: Regarding Hugh Chisholm – brick mason and plasterer who worked for Thomas Jefferson: 

Hugh Chisholm was a hired white workman, a jack of all trades, employed at Monticello from 1796 to 1797 and from 1801 to 1814.  Jefferson “paid Chisolm for plaistering &c.,” as well as for masonry, carpentry, bricklaying, and “20.D. to pay for digging.”  Sometimes working with his brother, bricklayer John, he “moulded and burnt” clay to make bricks and with “2 apprentices … [could] lay 1600. bricks a day.”  Chisholm worked on Monticello II (1796-1809), the dependencies, cisterns , and the South Pavilion. He may have renovated the workmen’s house on Mulberry Row when it was converted from dwelling to textile workshop. Chisholm owned a slave, Lewis, to whom Jefferson paid small sums for occasional odd jobs, such as “Chisolm’s Lewis gratuity for cistern 1.D.” in 1821.  https://www.monticello.org/slavery/landscape-of-slavery-mulberry-row-at-monticello/meet-people/hugh-chisholm/

Monticello is located in Albemarle County, Virginia – and Poplar Forest is located in Bedford County, Virginia.  Hugh Chisholm was hired by Thomas Jefferson to do work on his plantations in both locations from 1796-1814.

Correspondence between Jefferson  & Chisholm:

Monticello Sep. 7. 06.Sir
It occurred to me after leaving Poplar forest that there ought to be some more doors of communication in the rooms of the house below, than what I had marked in the plan given you. I therefore sketched them with a pencil & sent the sketch to you by mr Griffin. I now send you a sketch in ink, wherein you will find the following alterations.

1. 4 doors of communication between the rooms below.

2. 2 do. between the rooms above.

3. the two porches which I told you I should add.

4. two stairways necessary for communication between the upper and lower floors without going from under cover.

the porticos & stairways will require some more digging: you must make the space between window & window, on the East & West sides, exactly 10. f. so that the stairway may be placed between without blocking up the windows.   every thing is drawn so plainly that no further explanation is necessary. take care of the drawings as they will be necessary for mr Perry, & I do not reserve another copy for him. Accept my best wishes.

Washington June 5. 07.

Sir

I recieved last night your letter of the 1st. inst. and now inclose you 30. D. your order in favor of mr Kelly for 75. D. 87 cents is also paid by this post. It would certainly be agreeable to me that you should, by fixing up a bed for yourself, give mr Griffin’s family as little trouble as possible: and therefore if you will purchase oznabrigs for a straw bed & 2. pair of sheets, and striped blankets and put them into my account I will pay for them. when you are done work at Poplar forest, you can send them to Monticello where they will be always useful. indeed if you could fix yourself a snug lodging place in the barn, I should think it would be more agreeable to yourselves & the family—I hope you will have finished at Poplar Forest in time to work at Monticello in Aug. & Sep. where I wish some work done—under my own eye. I shall be at Poplar Forest about the end of July or beginning of August. with respect to door frames, you should recollect that I never have any in my buildings. you are to work up the proper opening for them which you will find in your instructions. & if the window frames are ready it is better to put them up & work the wall to them. but if not ready, they are not to be waited for. they can be put in afterwards, tho’ with more trouble. I salute you with my best wishes.

Th: Jefferson

P.S. we are in great distress for Jerry’s waggon at Monticello. I pray you therefore to press the finishing what is for him to do at Poplar forest. still I do not mean that you should send him away till he has compleetly done every thing necessary for the building so as not to interrupt the plantation for any thing about that. if you would engage the negroes to dig and remove the earth South of the house, 90. feet wide, down to a foot below the lower floor, & descending from thence due South 1. inch in every 10.f. till it gets clear out of the ground, I would gladly pay them for it, but it is only with their own free will & undertaking to do it in their own time. the digging & removing is worth a bit a cubic yard. you might lay off separate slipes from the house South till it clears the hill and of such widths as each person or gang chose to undertake, & mr Perry may make wheelbarrows sufficient for them, & charge them to me.

I arrived here yesterday, having been detained at Washington longer than I expected by the extraordinary occurrences in the Chesapeake. a post comes here to me every day to inform me of the daily proceedings of the British, so that I am tied here, as it were, and am altogether uncertain when I can proceed to Poplar forest. I shall want you to do some work here some time next month, and shall be glad you will inform me of the progress & state of your work & the carpenter’s work at the Forest that I may know when it would suit the work there best to call you here. a principal article here is to put in some cast iron semicircular sashes in the windows of the covered ways, which sashes are not yet arrived, but expected daily.

Sir

As I am anxious to get my South pavilion done early in Spring, and see no likelihood of procuring bricks otherwise, I conclude to make them. having some further purposes in view which will require bricks, I propose that we shall make a kiln at once which may be relied on to yield 40,000. good well burnt bricks. they are to be as follows:

8,000  .circular bricks on a radius of 42 I. headers & stretchers

8,000  .circular bricks on a radius of 7. f. headers & stretchers.

24,000  bricks of our usual size of the neatest make

40,000  be pleased therefore to prepare for this, by having the earth well dug & cleaned of stone, at the former brickyard, as soon as mr Bacon can possibly spare the time, in order that it may be well pulverised by frost. about midwinter it should be turned over a second time & again well cleansed of stone. on shewing this letter to mr Bacon, he will consider it as intended for his government. you & he must combine your convenience as well as you can for the work. as soon as the spring will possibly permit, we must have the bricks moulded & burnt, and the South pavilion done before you go to Bedford. Accept my best wishes.

I approve of your carrying on the brickmaking at Poplar Forest at the same time as at Monticello. I shall be anxious that the South pavilion be in readiness when I come home in April, because I have as many trunks of books now arrived at Monticello as will fill it, and which must be opened when I come home. I wish you to take every possible care not to injure the floor; for this purpose 2 courses of waste plank should be laid on it, breaking joints so that no lumps of brick may get in to scratch it. I hope mr Dinsmore will have his part ready, towit, doors, sashes, chairboards &c. break as little of the plaistering down as you can, and remember to preserve the shaft of the chimney above the roof. in every other respect it is to be finished on the model of the North pavilion, except that the fireplace below is to be large enough for a wash house, say 4 f. 6. I. wide. I present my best wishes

Dear Sir

The last post brought me the counteraddresses now inclosed. That from Ipswich is signed by 40. Persons, the town meeting which voted the petition consisted of 30. There are 500. voters in the place. The Counter address of Boston has 700. signatures. The town meeting voting the petition is said to have consisted of 500. In the draught of an answer inclosed, I have taken the occasion of making some supplementary observations which could not with propriety have been inserted in the answers to the petitions. The object is that the two together may present to our own people the strongest points in favor of the embargo in a short & clear view. An eye is also kept on foreign nations, in some of the observations. Be so good as to make it what it should be and return it by the first post.

Mr. Dinsmore informs me you wish to employ Hugh Chisolm, a bricklayer now working for me in Bedford, if I have no occasion for him. He will probably finish for me this month; after which I shall have nothing more for him the present year. I will write to him on the subject of your desire. He is a very good humored man, works as well as most of our bricklayers, and has had the benefit of becoming familiar with many things, with which they are unacquainted. Having found occasion in my last letters to Mr. Gallatin & Genl. Dearborn to say to them when I should be in Washington, I have mentioned the 1st. day of October.

I wish to know what progress Phill has made in the digging, and would have him continue at it under your direction and mr Perry’s as long as either of you are at work there, and then to come home. if I do not go to Bedford I will send you the 20. D. you desired. I hope you made the exchange of the laths you mentioned without waiting for my approbation. as soon as you have finished at Poplar forest, mr Madison desires to employ you in making bricks this fall at his house, which I presume he will want laid next spring. whether by time or the job, I know not. you had better write to him stating your own terms. mr Dinsmore goes to work for him about Christmas.

Sir

Having recieved information in March that Jame Hubbard had been living in Lexington upwards of a twelvemonth, I engaged a man (Isham Chisolm) to go after him. he got there five days after Hubbard had run off from there, having committed a theft. he returned of course without him. I engaged him to start a second time, offering a premium of 25.D. in addition to yours, besides his expences. he got upon his tract, & pursued him into Pendleton county, where he took him and brought him here in irons. I had him severely flogged in the presence of his old companions, and committed to jail where he now awaits your arrival. the course he has been in, and all circumstances convince me he will never again serve any man as a slave. the moment he is out of jail and his irons off he will be off himself. it will therefore unquestionably be best for you to sell him. I have paid for his recovery 70.D. all I ask for it is that he may be sent out of the state. Chisolm expects the 50.D. from you. he says he will buy him, if you will take a reasonable price and oblige himself to sell him out of the state. I suppose he would agree to clear you of the purchase and the premium. perhaps you had better go halves with him. I was just setting out to Bedford, but shall now wait till I see or hear from you: provided that be by Saturday sennight the 25th. on that day I must start for Poplar forest where I shall be glad to see you, if you do not come here, and to settle what shall be done. in the mean time I will ascertain what Chisolm will agree to. Accept my best wishes

From Hugh Chisholm

Charlottesville, Augt 23rd 17.

Dear sir,

I have the satisfaction to inform you, that, in spite of the wet weather, we have completed about eighty thousand bricks; which shall be prepared for burning the last of next week.

I must beg you will not engage the workmen for the building ‘till you again hear from me; which shall be before your deporture from Poplor Forest.

The objection which I made, in my letter to you, against the proposition offered by yourself before you left Albemarle, I must yet make, having, as yet, no reason to withdraw it.

I am, respectfully,

Hugh Chisholm.

To Hugh Chisholm

Poplar Forest Aug. 31. 17.

Dear Sir

I have duly recieved your letters of the 10th & 23d and am glad to learn that the bricks are in such forwardness. I wish you would by every week’s mail drop a line stating what the progress then is. I am anxious to know that the cellars are dug, and their walls commenced laying. but be careful to inform me in time and exactly by what day you will have got the walls up to the surface of the earth; because there mr Knight must begin, and by that day I will make it a point to be in Albemarle, and have him there.

I take no interest in the partnership I suggested to you1 other than as I supposed it would be agreeable. however, in acting for myself I might indulge partialities, I have no right to do so in a public concern. to have the work done in the best manner, is the first object, and the second to have it done at a fair price for both parties. I have offers from some of the best workmen in Lynchburg. the finest plaisterer I have ever seen in this state is anxious to undertake with us. I consider it as the interest of the College the town and neighborhood to introduce a reform of the barbarous workmanship hitherto practised there, and to raise us to a level with the rest of the country. on a trip to the Natural bridge, I found such brickwork and stone-work as cannot be seen in Albemarle. I hope we shall take a higher stand, and do justice to the high advantages that particular portion of our state possesses.

Accept my respects & best wishes

Th: Jefferson

TJ had learned that his slave James Hubbard (b. ca. 1783), who had run away from Monticello late in 1810 or early in 1811, was living seventy miles to the southwest in Lexington. After his departure TJ sold Hubbard to Reuben Perry, his carpenter at Poplar Forest, with the deed specifying that TJ was to receive $500, or its value in work, if Hubbard was recovered and $300 if he was not. When Isham Chisholm reached Lexington, Hubbard had just left, and a second trip by Chisholm was necessary to apprehend him in Pendleton County, now West Virginia. On Hubbard’s return, TJ had him “severely flogged in the presence of his old companions” before committing him to jail and advising Perry, his new owner, to sell him at once. Hubbard’s subsequent fate is unknown (TJ’s Conveyance of Hubbard to Perry, Feb. 1811TJ to Perry, 16 Apr. 1812Account with Chisholm, [ca. 1 May 1812]). [Note revised for digital edition, 2016-03-22]
