Rancher, beef contractor for CSA. He herded cattle over many trails, but not to the extent of Loving, Goodnight or Slaughter.
From the Clarksville Standard, January 9, 1885:
John S. Chisum, long known as one of the cattle kings, died at Eureka Springs on the 22nd (Dec. 22, 1884) and was buried at Paris, Lamar County, (Texas) where the Chisum family lived in 1842, and where his father and mother died. When he came to Clarksville, John was a clerk of Wright & Montgomery, and was a merry hearted, laughing boy. Our last sight of him was in 1854 when he lived on the line of Cooke and Denton. Since then he had emigrated to New Mexico in pursuance of his business, and had become the owner of many thousands (head) of cattle. He was, we believe, never married. There are a few old residents of Clarksville who will remember John Chisum as he was in boyhood.
