Notes

  • William Belew Chism was born and raised in Virginia, probably Halifax
    County.  He accompanied his parents when they migrated to Kentuckyaround
    1798, at the approximate 14 years of age.  According to one referencethey
    first went to the Kentucky river area, but later moved to SouthCentral
    Kentucky in Barren County (now Monroe County).  He was united inmarriage
    to Priscilla Breed, daughter of Nathan Breed and Mary (Harlan) Breed.
    The Breed's, Chism's, Howard's, Ray's, Gist's, Hays', Hart's,Mulkey's,
    Belieu's (Below, Belew, Ballaw, Belue), Marshall's, Newton's, Ellis'",
    Thompkins, Stearns", and Thompson's were all close families from years
    back when followers of the Fairforest Baptist Church in Union County
    South Carolina.  Eight or nine of these families intermarried.  Threeof
    James Cchism of Virginia sons married three daughters of Nathan Breed.
    One of these Breed sisters was William Belew's wife.  When in south
    central Kentucky they organized the Mill Creek Meeting House, now oneof
    the State Historical Sites.  In the cemetery at Mill Creek Church,several
    of the Chism's, Breed's, Howard's, and other family members are buried
    there, also members of allied families of the Chisms.  Most of these
    families had common roots.  William and Priscilla establishedthemselves
    in a farming operation in that area near what today is Tompkinsville.
    They lived close to the present location of the Old Mulkey MeetingHouse
    Church.  William and Priscilla lived in this area all of their lives.
    We do not know for sure where they are buried.  Most familyresearchers
    agree that it was probably in the Old Chism Burial Plot located todayon
    the property owned by the Ray family (Newton Ray Place).  In 1992,this
    is the Stephens place.  Apparently no markers were erected over their
    graves or perhaps they have been destroyed. William was usuallyreferred
    to as "Billy Belew".
