a John Wylie or Wiley from X ray community joined John Chissum- Chisolm ,
former County clerk of Paris, Texas. when he was moving his herd across
part of Erath County. Mr. Chisum built the Courthouse- as a contractor
and was moving cattle from his Denton- Collin County grazing area to the
Concho River Valley. One John Wylie- Wiley became his partner and pooled
catle and drove them to Concho River grazing, between Concho and Colorado
rivers- and rounded up many strays and wild cattle. They drove herds west
to te Goodnight- Loving Trail and contracted ghe Goodnightgroup to drive
their herds down to Pecos and up it to Colorado grazing, then they were
sold to Government supply posts where U.S. Govt. was buying them for
the Indians who were peaceful. They sold one herd to Goodnight- Loving
and contracted delivery of the others. Check Google for the John Wiley
or Wylie and separately for John Chissum- ChisolmThe Chisholm Trail
through Waco is falsely blamed one one of the Chisum- Chisolm, Sam
Houston's friend who made peace pacts with Texas Indians - they agreed to
not fight Colonists or side with Indians South of the Border against our
ancestors. This Chisholm was a trader and built the store in Abilene,
Kansas area. He had blazed a trail from a Red River port past Oklahoma
City to Abilene, across Oklahoma.
The Texas Chisholm Trail should be blamed on McCoy, a Railroad executive,
who visited South and East Texas ranches and arranged for herds to be
deliverred to Abilene. The Railroad reached Abilene the same week
A third John or Jesse Chissum was a Broken Bow, Ok. Farmer, who arranged
a herd from local ranches on both sides of Red River, and they drove
their cattle up Old Shawnee Trail to Illinois Market. a FEW MAPS SHOWED
THE mCcOY TRAIL JOINING the Chisholm Trail at the red River- as did the
Texas Trail farther west.
A generation before this, maybe two, there was an Innkeeper in Knoxville,
Tennessee - a Chisholm- and Sam Houston's friend? He had rooms and a bar.
He was an expert on Overmountain settlers this side of Appalachian Ridge
who wanted to keep the Mississippi open through New Orleans for trade
East coast Congressmen wanted the river closed and trade directed east
from pioneers to East coast ports. This Chisholm had one Indian wife, and
in his bar he planted ideas into my ancestor Col- Gov. of Tennessee,
Congressman U.S. Congress in D.C. 1st AND 2 OTHER TERMS. John Sevier
of Knoxville- and others. a statue of Col. Sevier with his Rev. War Rifle
represents Tennessee in the D.C. Capitol Hall of State.He was edged out
of being on quarters by a descendant- Dolly Parton or at least her type
music was recognized on a coin.
Most Indians did not interfere with Goodnight- Loving herds as
Col.Goodnight caught a hungry band of Indians- now believed to be
Quannah Parker. Col. left his group and rode down into Yellowhouse
Canyon and told these Indians he did not objet to them killing a cow at
a time as long as they ate it.
About 25 years ago we were eating in a Meridian , Texas convenience
store- Cafe, and an old man over 80, told us he had driven cattle for
Chisolm- Wiley from East Texas , dipped them and drove them to Colorado
River- or Concho area- before much fencing. Now wonder where Cranfil's
Gap got it's name???
Someone please post the Internet Contact for Tarleton State University
and Erath County records. One shjows my great
gGrandad Robert Augustine Wyly, his brother William Sevier Wyly and
possibly another brother Oliver Cromwell Wyly in a Grand Jury of Erath
County - next to a John Wylie or Wiley of X ray area
So much for the rambling, or, as Homer Stephen said once- "Nuf Sed"
