Jesse Chisholm was born in Tennessee (wasn't Davy Crockett born in that state, too). His father was Scottish and his mother was a Cherokee. He was not a cattleman, although the trail named for him later became a major cattle trail from Texas to Kansas.
There are historical markers that show some of the trial's location:
The main difference in the Chisholm Trails and other frontier trails is that Jesse Chisholm laid all his trails and river crossing out so that heavy trade wagons could use the trail. Maybe now you know a little more about the Chisholm Trail and the man who blazed it, at least I sure do. It is amazing how much I learn by just writing a blog!! Research is part of writing a blog, at least it is for me sometimes. Other times, I write from personal experience, and no, I am old but not old enough to personally know Jesse Chisholm. Now you all have a great day today, you hear?
