Born in Texas, he was the son of William and Malissa (Jordan) Chisum. He married Mavyce Romine in Texas and they moved to Oklahoma not long afterward. He served in the Infantry WW I, where he was exposed to mustard gas which caused him health problems thereafter.
They raised four children: Cladie, Clyde and twins, Milford and Milton Chisum, all good athletes in the schools.
He and Mavyce lived in the Non community where he served the FWB church as a deacon for many years. He then was ordained as a minister of the gospel and pastored churches in the area, among them, Crossroads, Calvin, and others, and preached wherever he was needed. He attended the Quarterly and State Association meetings. He and his wife were promoters in the church, and workers with the youth of the community...many times hosting "parties" which consisted of games and activities that helped the kids have something to do---this in a day before TV and computers.
They were especially kind to the aged widows and helped them in many ways.
He always encouraged his children to get an education as schooling was a high priority with him, which they did.
In his later years, they made their home in Holdenville
He worked at various jobs in home decorating, and sales, as his health permitted. His home always had an open door for a minister or missionary who happened to be
in the area needing a place to sleep.
He is remembered for the good he did, and his positive outlook and encouragement to those he met.
