Rigazio, Alma Chisholm

My paternal grandfather was Kenneth Chisholm from Barbaraville Scotland, Rose Cottage. He came to the US on a steamer at the age of 15 as I was told and came to the Boston Mass. area where he worked as first a janitor, then a sales man and eventually owner of Sparrow Chisholm Company, a Wholesale Drygoods Company. He was a convert to the catholic faith from Presbytarian. I do not know any more about his background, he came here in the late 1800's and passed away in the early 40's. He had 7 children, Harold, Viola, Chester Elmer, my dad Ernest, Albert and Kenneth Jr. Only Albert , the youngest is still alive and has recently made a trip to his father's homeland. All the children stayed in the Boston area.
