Notes for THOMAS GIBBONS CHISUM:
Thomas was married to his cousin Malinda Chisum. Moved to Rusk Co T X.

In Hardeman Co., TN, 24 Dec. 1835, Thomas sold to Claiborne Chisum interest in slaves in right of wife Malinda Chisum, who is one of the heirs of John Chisum, decd., belonging to estate, to-wit: Doctor, James William, Randal and wife Sally and their children, Absalom, Alfred, Patsy, Randal, Hiram, Berry, Polly and Dorinda. Witnesses were Wm. H. Chisum and John Bick( Hardeman Co., E, 265. Evidently Thomas G. Chisum, son of James, married his cousin Malinda , dau. of John Chisum.

On 15 Apr 1836, Thomas sold his part of land of James Chisum, dec., on Clover Creek, to his brother-in-law Andrew Turner. Deed Bk. E. , p. 24. Andrew Turner (Maj Andrew Turner m. Levinia Chisum, dau of James Chisum, 130 Acres. Wit James M. Johnson ( His mother was oldest child of James Chisum , John G. Chisum. ( Hardeman Co., TN. deeds E,24.

Thomas lived in Hardeman and Madison Co., TN and is found in 1850 Rusk Co., TX census with above named children. This section of Rusk Co . later became part of Gregg Co., TX

The following appeared in the newspaper, "Real County American," 22 May, 1986, Leakey, TX and was compiled by Nancy Dennis Chisum, Sue Chisum, Hallie Chisum and Annie Chisum.

"According to census records and family tradition the following information is derived: Thomas Gibbons Chisum and wife, Malinda Chisum came to Texas sometime between 1834 and 1835. When the family left Tennessee, the only children born to Thomas G. and Malinda were Parilee and Talbert (Tolbot on census). The family first arrived in Lamar Co. where they are found to have bought land there. Records show he bought 1280 acres in Lamar and Fannin districts. Evidently when Thomas and Malinda made their trek to the frontier of Texas there were other family members and relatives that came with them."

Claiborne (brother of Thomas G.) and his wife Lucinda Armstrong Chisum also came to Lamar Co., TX. They were cousins and were the parents of Cow John, John Simpson Chisum. I don't know when Thomas and Malinda moved from Lamar Co. to Rusk, except that it was between 1837 and 1850. They lived in Northern Rusk Co. Thomas was a farmer. After coming to Texas, Thomas and Malinda had William and Andrew and a daughter named Sis on Census, but her name may have been Laura. Other children were Paxhun, Adaline and John. Thomas G. Died in Rusk (now Gregg Co.) on 27 Feb 1855, Malinda died about 1880.
