Re: John Simpson Chisum vs. Jesse Chisholm

Actually, Jesse Chisholm and John S "Cow John" Chisum are related, although distantly. Both Jesse and John are descendants of Richard Cheesome and Margaret Isham, as am I. The Cheesomes immigrated from Scotland, and various branches and generations of the family used different spellings - Cheesome, Chisholm, Chisum, Chisam.

*** John S "Cow John" Chisum's Line:

Richard Cheesome m. Margaret Isham

- son James Cheesome m. Anne Carter

-- son John Chisum m. Elizabeth Bradley

--- son John Chisum m. Ellender Gullington

---- son Elijah Chisum m. Lucy Claiborne

----- son James Stewart Chisum m. Betsy Gibbons

------ son Clairborne Chisum m. Lucinda Armstrong

------- son John Simpson "Cow John" Chisum

*** Jesse Chisholm's Line:

Richard Cheesome m. Margaret Isham

- son William Chisum

-- son Alexander Chisum m. Marsey

--- son William Chisholm Sr m. Deborah Cook

---- son John Chisholm m. Betsy Faughling (Fawling?)

----- son Ignatius Chisholm m. Martha Rogers

------ son Jesse Chisholm

*** John S "Cow John" Chisum is the g-g-g-g-g (5) grandson of Richard Cheesome and Margaret Isham.

*** Jesse Chisholm is the g-g-g-g (4) grandson of Richard Cheesome and Margaret Isham.

*** I am the g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g (10) granddaughter of Richard Cheesome and Margaret Isham.

So, if my math is correct, John S "Cow John" Chisum and Jesse Chisholm are 5th cousins, once removed. Jesse is my 5th cousin, 6 times removed, and John is my 3rd cousin, 5 times removed.
