I am researching the Izard co. Ark. Walker- Chism connection. My ggggrandfather Hartwell Walker was married to Elizabeth Gray (daughter of John Gray and Elizabeth Chism) Hartwell's mother was Ellender Chism Walker. Benjamin, Elizabeth, and Ellender Chism were children of Elisha Chism and Elizabeth "Springflower" Dark (daughter of Adam Dark. Family history had it that springflower married a Ben Chism. Does anyone have any opinions on that. I will share my research with others. Is Winnifred Russell the second wife to Elisha Chism after his marriage to Springflower Dark, or are they one and the same? Maybe there were two Chism men making children in Izard co. Maybe there was a Ben and an Elisha Chism (same generation) I have the 1830 censuses of Izard co. ark and Independence co. ark. There was more than one Ben Chism, I believe. What do others think?
