Robert thanks for the information.I posted this earlier today but I see it didn't post, maybe it will show up later. Many years ago I did some research on a Chisholm. She lived in the NY or New England area. Shemarried andwas living in Canada, her husband died and she and her children came to Madison County OH. This was at the start of the War 0f 1812. I believe her married name was Cowan and she remarried to a Carey. She was one of the silver mine Chisholms, which I believe goes back to Alexander or Kenneth. I have her info but my file is in storage, when I can I will fill in the details.
I have been looking at the Chisum-Wright connection. James Chisum(brother of John S Chisum) was married to Ara Josephine Wright. Who might connect to the Madison County Wrights and also connect to the Houstons in VA. thanks for your help. Pat
