  • Notes 
    • I have read someplace that the John and Matilda Hash were living in Missouri when John was killed. The two sons revenged his death and fled to Texas. It has been said that they went to work for John Simpson Chisum, an Uncle, I think. Never heard anything more about the brothers.

    • gggrandparents-John H.Chisam, Jr. and Matilda (Hash)Chisam.

      They had nine childern, William, Amamda, John ChisamIII, Caroline, Preston, Nancy, Timothy, Clem, & (?). My ggrandfather was Clem.

      Looking for info about the rest of the family. Clem Chisam left the family after he and his brother Timothy killed some men who had killed their father(John Chisam,Jr). They went to Texas and apparently dissapeared from the rest of the family, or at least Clem did.Clem settled down and married Elizabeth Ann Rice in 1876 in Denton Co. Texas.

      My mother is in her late 70's and wanted me to find her family history. This is all I have found, but would like to know more about Clem Chisam's brothers and sisters famlies. If anyone has anything about them please reply. Thanks!
