Hi Alan,
My George Chism was born 1835 in Pittsylvania Co. Virginia and married Mary Ferguson and Permelia Yates. His father was John W. Chism who married Letitia R. Fackler, Nov.16,1830. I haven't been able to find John's parents or siblings. Maybe your George and my John are some how connected? Let me know what you think. Susan

I don't have enough other information at this time to even make a wild guess. Good luck.

Hi Susan!

Do you have information regarding a Henry Coleman Chisom*,
who married Catherine Arnold in 1849 in Pittsylvania Co., VA?

I can't seem to find him in the 1850 VA Census, but he was
in Pittsylvania Co., VA in 1860.
He later moved to Franklin Co., VA, where he shows up by 1870.

He once owned and operated a grist mill along the Roanoke River.
Henry and Catherine had a large family, and many of
their descendants live in the Roanoke Valley area of VA.

If you find a connection, I'll be happy to exchange information.

Thanks and good luck with your research!

Tammy Fisher

Hi there,
I have a family tree prepared by a fairly distant cousin that lists a Henry Coleman Chisom, b. 1824, as my great-great-great grandfather. The tree mentions that he served in the Civil War, although he seems a bit old for that. The tree says he was in the 24th Virginia Infantry, Co. K, although I haven't found him on any rosters. I have found evidence of an H.C. Chisom that served with the 52nd Virginia Infantry, but have not been able to confirm that it's him.
Although I've found traces of other Chisoms in the same area prior to Henry, I have not been able to link them. If you've found anything, please let me know! Thanks.

Hello,

I have no connection to the CHISHOLM family, but I can tell you [since I live in Danville, which is an "independent city" within the borders of Pittsylvania County] that Pittsylvania County is the largest county in Virginia and is located on the VA-NC border, due north of Greensboro, North Carolina.

If you find Greensboro on a map and follow the path of Route 29 north into Virginia, you'll find Danville and thus Pittsylvania County.

Hope this helps!


Richard

Thank you, Richard. I sorta thought so, but with no results from all the groups I belong to, finding MY Chism has gotten to be a wild ride. Ancestry is insisting Praytor goes in there somewhere, which would connect to Blind John, but I cannot Find the connection. I Know it goes back to a William from Ireland, & David, Ire., to CT. From Ire to here is ???. What fun this puzzle ! I also know much family was scattered TN., VA., NC., KY., AND back to Tuscaloosa.HMmmmmm.Gotta get that book " The Chiz" & see if it helps, when I can afford it. TY again.
