What does 1 Chronicles 9:5 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Chronicles 9:5

And of the Shilonites
Not called so from the city of Shiloh, which was in Ephraim; whereas these here intended were of the tribe of Judah, and were either the descendants of a man whose name was Shiloni, ( Nehemiah 11:5 ) or rather these are the same with the Shelanites, ( Numbers 26:20 ) so called from Shelah the son of Judah; and so the Targum here is,

``and of the tribe of Shelah:''

Asaiah the firstborn, and his sons;
the same with Maaseiah, ( Nehemiah 11:5 ) .
