    Notes 
    • At a very early age Eliza fell in love with a young Acadian Frenchman who worked for her father.  They eloped to Louisiana where they were married and remained until the spring of 1838.  Apparently being forgiven by her father, the couple crossed the Sabine River into the Republic of Texas on May 15th and settled on a farm just north of Beaumont.
          Also living in the household in 1850 was Maguire's aged father, Jean Baptiste ("Jonas") Chaison, age 105.  He was a native of Nova Scotia who had come to America to fight with the rebellious colonists in the American Revolution.
          Maguire and Eliza (McFaddin) Chaison had seven children, five of whom lived to maturity.  Their accomplishments, and those of their children, were especially noteworthy.  As biographer Martin writes in her book, " The Chaisons can never be forgotten in Beaumont.  To say nothing of the famous Jean Baptiste (Jonas), there are three Chaison Additions in the city, three streets named for family members, . . . and [daughter-in-law] Clara Chaison was one of the founders of Beaumont's Westminster Presbyterian Church.
