Shelby Chronister (who went by his middle name, Clayton) was the brother of my grandfather, Richard "Ward" Chronister. Another of their brothers, Roger, settled in Bly, Oregon, a small town not far from Klamoth Falls. I grew up near Salem, Oregon, but have lived in Europe for over 20 years now, so don't remember where Jewell, Oregon is. Still, I am sure some of our cousins are still in or near the Bly area if you ever felt like trying to look them up.
I have a lot of information on our family - right back to the original immigrants in 1734 if you are interested.
You also might be interersted to know that Thomas Jefferson Chronister, the grandfather of your grandfather, Clayton, was the only brother out of 7 that fought for the North during the Civil war. I mention that, because after the war, he too moved to Kansas for several years before eventually settling in southeastern Oklahoma (LeFlore & Hartshorne) with his son Sidney "Munroe" Chronister, our great-grandfather.
This is all kind of sketchy as it has been a while since I've put any time into my family research and I don't have my notes at hand. If you are interested, let me know and I'll look them up.
