    My Grandfather -

    Silas was born in Tennessee as were his father and grandfather before him. As a young man he went north to Minnesota and South Dakota working as a chef for many places.

    He registered for the military during WWI but was not called to duty.

    He married Hannah Ericka O'Brink and had 3 children in Minnesota. Their oldest died as a toddler in a tragic house fire.

    Silas and Hannah eventually separated and he married his second wife, Martha Elaine Wiitala. They had 6 children together.

    In the early 50's, Silas and his second family moved closer to his roots and settled in Arkansas. He lived out his remaining years there.

    Grandma Chisam. What a great lady. You didn't mess with her. She had a strong grip, something she passed on to my dad, for sure. Her parents were from Finland and migrated to the states in the late 1800's.

    She was born in North Dakota and grew up in the Dakota's, raising her children there and in Minnesota.

    The family eventually moved to Arkansas where I remember traveling to see her in the late 70's. She would tell me, "I don't know where my life has gone". "One minute, I was a little girl, the next minute I'm an old lady".

    She would show me a picture of my grandpa when he was young and talk about how handsome he was.

    She listened to Finnish Polka records and could still speak the language some.

    I remember she had a large collection of salt and pepper shakers and liked watching "rasslin'" on TV.

    In her last days, she went to live with her daughter in Washington state where she passed away. She is buried in Washington.

    John Chisholm was the oldest son of David and Ann Chisholm and was born about 1730 in Hanover Co. VA. His marriage to Sarah Harris produced 12 Chism children: William, Rachel, Polly, "Hickory John", Betsy, Elisha, Elijah, Gatewood, Frances, Sarah, Nancy, James. I didn't realize I mistyped the date their son William Chisholm married Ann Praytor about 1793 -- not 1703. I'm still looking for parents of Sarah Harris and of Mary Middleton, who married 1760 William Praytor in SC. Does your line connect to these family surnames? Audrey

    Recently, while tracking down one of the many Johns, I ran across the following information in the records of Madison Co, AL.

    Letters of Administration for the estate of one John Chisolm were issued to a Lazarus Vann on 8/16/1830. These letters were issued with the consent of the widow, Sarah. John died intestate.

    Filtering thru the notes and letters, I found the heirs to be: Sarah (widow), John Chisolm Jr., William Chisolm Sr, Isham Pullen, Alfred Marrow, Andrew Burnside, and Nancy Fisher. Nancy Fisher, and John Chisum had a letter written from White Co, Tn to the judge of probate requesting that slaves Hannah (old woman) and Dolly (girl), part of the estate of John Chisolm, be sold and the proceeds of the sale be divided among the heirs.

    A LeRoy Chisum, who apparently lived in Madison Co, Al attached his concurrence. (Sarah, Nancy, and LeRoy can not write). LeRoy's concurrence is dated April or Aug. 18, 1832. One William L. Chisam charged the estate 2.00 for bringing the slaves to Huntsville on 7/2/1832. Around this time, Sarah, the widow, had a letter written to the judge of probate asking that the judge provide her with the status of the settlement of the estate, stating that she had not received a single penny from the estate of her husband and that she had sent a letter to the administrator but not heard from him. She also stated that her husband had promised that she would be able to keep the slaves to "wate" on her during her old age.

    Soon after the letter was received, the judge ordered the sherriff to have Mr Van bring all records of the estate to court. No mention of the disposition or fate of Mr Vann is mentioned. I recoginized this John to be "Blind John" because several years ago I had read of his daughter's troubles in applying for his Revoloutionary War Pension.

    "Blind John" is listed, in most accounts, as having died in Perry Co, AL but it is apparent he died in Madison Co, AL It could be that he was a resident of Perry Co and happened to die in Madison Co. That may be why $2.00 was charged to bring the slaves to Huntsville. No records I have seen show the first names of John's son in laws, Burnside and Pullen. I think this record in Madison Co makes those name clear. Alfred Marrow may be another son in law.

    The file in Madison Co, AL has the estate sale, listing all property sold and to whom. There are also several slips of paper where Mr Vann made charges to the estate for "services" and one page which was faded and unreadable.

    There was no charge for transportation of the body so I assume John was buried in Madison Co or someone transported his body free of charge to "wherever". There is a charge of $2.00 for a casket.

    Hope this is helpful to you "Blind John" folks. BTW the spelling of the name Chisolm is all over the lot. Chisolm,Chisum,Chism,Chisam,etc. Seems that none could read or write.

    I have a tree at ancestry.com. Here is the link:

    My Grandmother was Clara Emmalynn Chisam from her you can follow the Chisam line to Overton (and his brothers) and beyond. As you will see in the tree,Overton, John and Preston Chisam (all brothers) married the three Hash sisters Celia, Matilda and Cynthia respectively.

    I have been told by other researchers that at the time the two families properties were adjacent to each other.

    There has been some controversy over the lineage of John “Blind John” Chisholm. Some say he descended from David and Adam Chisholm but that is another John Chisholm. There were so many John Chisholm’s that it is easy to muddle the lines. I’m certain of my research with Richard Cheesome (various spellings) being the patriarch of my clan lineage.

    If for any reason this doesn’t give you the information you seek then let me know.

    I have seen the sight you referenced and it looks like an old email of mine is with Mary Elizabeth Spencer. My Hennessee/Spencer line is also detailed in my tree with Mary Spencer marrying James Walker (in Georgia) and I have lots of other Walkers as well.

    Happy New Year to you too!

    It is a small world. If I can't find my ancestors in the normal way, I tend to go up and see if there is a downward connection. In my family notes I had written:

    "I haven’t been able to prove the parents of Sarah. A number of years ago, another researcher reported her as the daughter of James and Sarah Harris of St. Martin’s Parish, Virginia.
    27 April 1766 James and Sarah Harris of St. Martin's Parish, Louisa County, Virginia [formerly Hanover County] lived on a branch of Long Creek beside Waddy, Pope, Marks, Jones and Sharp – selling this property 11 August 1766 [Louisa County Deeds 1759-1774 by Davis]

    One line that has been well researched from immigrants Capt. Thomas and Adria Harris was through their son Robert Harris who married Mary Clairborn; and their grandson William and Temperance Harris. William and Temperance Harris had children: Benjamin, Robert, William, Jr., John, James and Jemima. Several members of this family are found in the records of the Hanover County area."

    I'm trying to prove or disprove my Samuel Howell, whose sons, David and Reece, settled in Lincoln County, TN is the same man as the Rev. Samuel Howell.

    If I find a good lead, will let you know.
