My sincere thanks to Tom Chism ( desc of John suppling this 1860 census on my Martha Ann Chism and her family.

Chism must have died after 1862 and before 1870 and Sarah's last child is Benjamin Chism born 1862){kgk}Marriage of Sarah Elizabeth Chism on aug. 30,1867Jackson Co.AR. to Charles H.

  Hello Kay:  I am Rosalie Chisum Lupcho and a beginner in the genealogy study
of my family.  
 Four years ago my Daughter Theresa and I were touring Arkansas and the areas
where my family lived when I was a girl.  We visited the cemetery at
Macedonia where my grandparents, Rev. John W. and Sarah (Geiger) Chisum are
buried and we photographed the headstones including one John R. Chism....   I
showed the photo of John R. to my Aunts and inquired his identity.  No one
knew, saying he might have been a distant cousin perhaps, but certainly not
part of 'our' family.
 This past year one aunt told me we have a second cousin in Danville that
might have some family information.  June 21,2002 my 89-yr.old aunt and I
visited with someone  we know as Lee Chism, but we learned his full name is
Tommy (sometimes Thomas or Tom).  He certainly did have information for us
and was gracious in sharing.  Near the end of the visit, I asked if he
possibly knew the identity of the 'mystery headstone of John R. Chisum', and
to my amazement he said this is my Great Grandfather and his Grandfather whom
he remembers!  Lee (Tom) was about 8 when his Grandfather died, and he
remembers well his Grandfather's long white beard, and he is trying to find a
photo w/beard for me.
John R."s wife  Sarah lies in an unmarked grave (blank cement block only )
with two infant children (1929 & 1930) of H.B. & Geneva Chisum between them.
  Lee's father Jesse and my grandfather  John W.were brothers.[Unable to
display image]
  Rev. John W. Chisum and Sarah Geiger Chisum were parents of 3 boys and 4
girls.  The eldest son, George Dewey (1902 or 03 - 1958), was my father. 
There was also William W., Edna, Dallas, Pauline, Mamie and Marie.
  Lee also gave me your website address.  Thank you for all the work you have
done in chronicalling the Chism/Chisum lineage.
  Your website is marvelous!       Rosalie Chisum Lupcho   (age 70) (pic of Rosalie & family)

Lum (son ) age 11 born Jan. 1889 Ar.(m) 1913 Edith Hood and moved to McIntosh Co.Ok.

Polly"Mary" was a Chism before marriage or was a Hudson then married a Chism ???Polly had a daughter "Jane Chism".  Marriage records of Conway Co.Ar. listed Janie Chism age 16 ( 1869) married Charles F. Ridling Feb. 1885 (book E. page 111).(Info from Cousin Bill Huff's book "Huff Tails & trails") There is one thing wrong with that census for 1900, If Jane was married in 1885 to Mr. Ridling and had children, what was she doing in the household with her mother in 1900.  (If this is the same family)

NOTE: Since Polly's daughter "Jane" born 1872 is still listed in the household of Polly Hudson in 1900, I am not sure that the Jannie Chism age 16 in 1885 ( is the same Jane living with her mother in 1900.

According to the 1830 Izard Co.AR. census, Benjamin Chisolm was listed as 20/29 years of age, born ca. 1801-1810, 2 males U/5, born ca. 1825-1830, 2 males 5/9 born ca. 1821-1825, 1 female u/5 born ca. 1825-1830, 1 female 5/9 born ca. 1821-1825, and 2 females 20/29 born ca. 1801-1810.  This 1850 census would indicate that Benjamin and Polly were missing 4 children between 1830 and 1850.  Two males and 2 females, and probably married before 1850 census.  William and Benjamin appear to be the two males listed as U/5 born between 1825 and 1830.

MARY AGE 21 BORN TN. ABOUT 1839   (Go to 1880 Searcy Co.Ar.)


Hello Kay,

I hope all is well with you.
I came across a marriage record for Sarah Elizabeth Chism, John B's daughter, to Charles H. Risner. This would confirm your thoughts about her mother living next-door to them in 1870 Newton Co.
Anyway, the marriage took place in Jackson Co. on August 30, 1867. This places the family in that county at least up to the middle of 1867. That narrows down the timeline for their migration to Newton Co.
I hope this is new information for you. I plan on sending for a copy of the record most likely this week.

Your cousin,

this is what I have so far on my Chisum Family (1/11/2001

Tallerent (Tank) Chisum and Ellen Morris Chisum had only one son Robert (go to 1900 census)
Franklin Chisum, Robert married Margaret Laymons
and had 7 children.

John Belcher Chisum (nickname Beech)

d. 5-1986
buried: Manila, AR (Mississippi CO)
married: Mabel

daughter that died in infancy (no name known)

John Chisum
married Viola

George Chisum
married Louvenia Middleton and Bessie Middleton (sisters of my dad)

Donna Chisum   (my mother is still living)
b. 10-10-10    in Hot Springs, AR
married Lonnie Homer Middleton   marriage date 6-12-1928 Amity AR.

Steve Chisum
drown in the AR River abt. 1947 he never married

James (Jim) Chisum
b. 10-8-1924
d. 5-13-1994   Marianna, AR (Lee CO)
buried Moro Cemetery, Moro, AR (Lee CO)
married Lucille Davis

I'm still trying to get birthdates and death dates on everyone, I'll send
them to you as I get them. I tried to get information on them while they were
still living but they did not respond to my letters,
Thanks for all your help

born in Ky.
Rebecca and Obediah married in Al.  Liberty

East Corner.   It would be near Nogo.  It is where
the corner of Pope, Newton, and Van Buren

Obediah and Rebecca are said to be buried in

now he says

he is related to John some way.  Thomas is 54. He was born in Al. his father
