Re: SPOW Duncan Chisholm
This is a bit of slow reply as I’ve been snowed under with other things.
How far back is your paper-trail verified by autosomal or Y-DNA matches to other Rowe descendants? The Chisholm who fathered a Rowe doesn’t have to be in that first generation unless you can demonstrate that is the only possibility. Looking at your family tree the Rowes are all in Hampton, New Hampshire. The first couple of generations of Chisholms are in Biddeford, Maine, which is less than 50 miles away, and some later generations are at Newbury, Massachusetts, only 16 miles away, so it is hard to rule out interactions between the families in the intervening centuries.
I’ll ask to get the website changed for Duncan Chisholm, as I didn’t know of that 1659 reference when we were writing Lost Lives New Voices.

I was wondering if anyone could help me locate a male descendant of SPOW Duncan Chisholm that would be willing to join the Scotts Prisoners Y dna project. I am kit #887186. I can trace my paternal line back to a Robert Roe in born about 1659 in Salisbury Ma. Robert had a son with Mary Paine, Robert Rowe Jr who became an indentured servant for Capt. Joseph Swett. Familytreedna placed me in the Chisholm surname and said that at a GD of about 350-400 years ago their is a 98% chance my surname was Chisholm. This is why I believe I am a descendant of Duncan's.
Thanks for any help
