I have traced these families for the last 10 years and would love to hear from anyone who shares any of these lines. The family I am still doing research on is James Gholson Chrismanand Clara Ann Bledsoe.They had 11 children:Joseph Bledsoe Chrisman m. Caroline Fox; Thomas J. Chrisman m. Julia Thompson; Margaret J. Chrisman m. unknown; Mary Ann Chrisman never married; Agness Chrismanunknown at this point; Julia Chrisman m. Isaac Icabod Barber; Henry Clay Chrisman m. Margaret Jane Ogden; Albert Sidney Chrisman m. Jennie Sims; Hiram Bledsoe Chrisman m. Lydie E. ?; Rose Ann Chrismannever married. James Gholson Chrisman and his wife appear in Smith Co., MS. on the tax rolls in 1844.As of now all the boys, but the youngest Hiram, served in the Civil War from the state of MS.Thomas was killed in the battles surrounding Vicksburg, MS.Our Dr. Pinckney D. Chrisman's death has two different stories confirmed by two different sources.One source states that he died in the service of the Confederacy and was buried in New Orleans, LA.Another source states he died in Scott Co., MS. in 1869.Joseph Bledsoe Chrisman remained in MS after the Civil War and went on to become a judge in that state.His remaining siblings, after their mother and father's deaths, headed west for Texas. I would enjoy hearing from anyone with knowledge of these families. Yours in-the-line, Linda Chrisman
