Daniel Chisholm - owned land around 1819 in Monroe County, AL - Cahaba land office. Daniel was born between 1780-1790. His wife was Margaret Chisholm (unsure of her maiden name). She was born "around" 1800, according to the 1850 Monroe County, AL census.

Children in the Daniel/Margaret's household in Monroe County in 1850 were:
Elizabeth - 28 from NC - born around 1822
Sarah - age 30 from NC - born around 1820
Mary - age 26 from NC - born around 1824
Neal R. - age 22 from AL - born around 1828
Ann - age 18 from AL - born around 1832

Mary Chisholm - listed on the 1830 census for Monroe County, AL. She lived beside Daniel Chisholm and was between 50-60 years old - born between 1770-1780.
I believe she is living in the household with Daniel in 1840.

Elbert Chisum - age 45 on the 1850 Monroe County, AL census. His wife was Sarah Chisholm - age 42 on the 1850 census. Elbert was born around 1805. Children were:
Sarah J. - age 15 on the 1850 census - born in AL around 1835
Elbert - age 12 - born around 1838
William P. - age 8 - born in AL around 1842

Richard P. Chisholm - probably owned land around this time as well. Became indebted to a Henry L. Allen and Edward L. Smith (Smith and Allen) in 1832.

Hugh Chisholm - may have been Daniel Chisholm's son. He was born "around" 1823 in Alabama. In Monroe County, he held several land patents above Beatrice, AL. In 1850, he is listed in Escambia County, FL - Pensacola. He married Mary Ann Elizabeth McMillan (from AL) on Feb. 14, 1850. His son was named Daniel T. Chisholm. Hugh worked in Pensacola at the Navy Yard as a carpenter; he was in the shipping business according to a family source. He was killed or died before 1850 - before his son was born on Dec. 25, 1850.

John Chisholm - was also a carpenter - born in NC in 1810. He married Matilda Curry (from Georgia) in 1834. John held land patents near Hugh and Daniel Chisholm. After 1840, John and Matilda moved to Mobile County, AL. Their children were:
1850 Mobile County, AL census
John Chisholm was 40 years old, a carpenter from NC
Matilda was 37 years old from Georgia
William Allen Chisholm was 14 years old - he later married Martin Arledge's daughter, Nancy Elizabeth Arledge, and they moved to Winn Parish, LA.
Ann Elizabeth "Eliza" was 16 years old. She married Thomas Ellis
George E. was 11 years old
John E. or A. was 10 years old
Amanda J. was 7 years old
Andrew J. was 5 years old
Daniel was 3 years old

Any help on WHERE exactly these Chisholms came from in South or North Carolina would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
