  • Notes 
    • According to The Buffington Family of Dearborn County, Indiana (citation details below), Edmund is one of nine children named in John B. Chisman's will (made 2 Dec 1834 and proved 14 Oct 1836), the others being Elias (whose will was made in 1877 and proved in 1883), John, George, William, James, Elizabeth, Mary Ann, and Charlotte.

      He may be the Edmund Chisman recorded as a private in the 6th regiment of artillery (the record describes it as "READ, JR.'S") in the Virginia militia during the War of 1812. He would have been the right age, and it seems clear that the Chisman family's movement westward commenced later than 1812-14.
