I am trying to find a marriage record for William CHISIM (CHISUM/CHISHOLM?) and Mary “Polly” POND who were married in Orange County sometime between around 1775, or perhaps just a bit later. My mother and I are working on the family genealogy. We have traced William’s son John from North Carolina to southern Illinois. We are particularly interested where the family property might have been located. I grew up on the family story that the “great-great-’s” had come from a plantation. Based on what we know of John, we think that there may have been a substantial piece of property. Any advise you can offer about where to start looking for this information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
