Chambers, George? or James?

Birth Name Chambers, George? or James?
Gender male


George Chambers bought a very large land holding in Hampshire Co, VA 1794 where John was born. John also named a son George. No Chambers in Hampshire Co by 1810 census.

Only Chambers in early Louisville KY census was James Chambers

"Early Records, Hampshire County, Virginia"
1767 Christopher Chambers from John Relfe (land grant) [index says "of London, England"]

Numerous trees have confused our John Chambers born 1749 in Hampshire Co, VA, died 1824 in Pike Co, IN ( parents unknown) with a John Chambers born 1748 in Culpepper, VA and died in Jennings Co, IN son of Col David Chambers b.1725 Scotland.

Several DNA matches who are shared matches with my Hale/Chambers cousins descend from the Chambers of Baltimore, MD, specifically Richard Chambers b.20 JUN 1700 • Mill Creek Hndrd, New Castle Co., DE d New Castle, DE who married Elinor Miller b. 10 APR 1710 Charlemont, Armagh, , Ireland d. 18 FEB 1789 • New Garden, Chester, Pennsylvania, United States. They did indeed have a son John Chambers b. 26 Jan 1730 New Castle, DE

The odd name of his grandson, Andrew Brininger Chamber, could mean a Brininger connection up this Chambers branch. I do indeed see Briningers early on in Chester Co, PA.


Family of Chambers, George? or James?


other early Chambers' marriages in Louisville, Jefferson Co, KY (could be John's siblings):
James Chambers -- Amelia Sebastian -- 30 Oct 1789 [James d.3 Feb 1801 in Bardstown, KY]
Priscilla -- Thomas Stafford Jr. -- 13 Jul 1797
Benjamin Chambers -- Mary Tuley -- 09 Apr 1800 [Benjamin b~1770]

Some trees have confused 2 different John Chambers (1749-1824). This John who died in 1824 in Pike Co, IN and married Rachel [unknown maiden name] is NOT the John Chambers s/o David who married Ann Manlove and died 1824 in Muskingum Co, OH. The latter's will lists completely different children. Nor is he the John Chambers s/o David who died 1828 in Jennings Co, IN.
