About Ignatius Chisholm


Ignatius’ parentage is also rather confusing. His father is clearly John D. Chisholm(I049) . Some think that Ignatius’ mother was John’s first wife, a White woman, named Betsy Sims(I044) , the widow of William Fawling. This is probably correct, since Betsy’s father was named Ignatius

Ignatius Chisholm joined the trek of the Cherokees when they left East Tennessee. Many of the Cherokees settled in the present county of Johnson in northwestern Arkansas some fifty miles east of Fort Smith. Ig. Chisholm was born some time about the beginning of the Revolutionary War. We find him a grown man in 1797 when his father, Captain John Chisholm, sailed for England. Instructions had been left to deliver a certain important paper to John Chisholm, but in case of his absence the paper was to be delivered to "Ig. Chisholm, the Captain's son."
