Albert Marion is the son of Thomas C(M) Chisum and Alabama Mae Reeves; who was the son of William and Mary Chisum. , My father told a story, that his father Thomas Marion told him, the story is: that William was in the civil war, on the Confederate side. And on the day the war ended, that they were firing a cannon ball to surrender; and William tried to stop it with his foot. The cannon ball knocked him down, he had a bottle of acid (to take fur off hides) in his pocket, and it broke and spilled on his chest, eating into his flesh and he died in a year or less. This would have been around 1866-67. We think Thomas was born 1859 and would have been 7 or 8 years old. It is our belief that Benamin and Polly from Izard Co., ARk in 1850 and 1860 census is the father of Thomas. We would like to here from decendants of this line.
