Chambers Connections


Although this site is primarily intended to show the documented links between our Chambers connection and Margaret Chambers, w/o William Snodgrass, I would also like to dedicate the following pages to the Chambers Families that I have come across, insofar as have either proven, or strongly suspect, a connection to Margaret. Follow the links to Chambers' Personal Information Pages. To date it appears that Margaret's family is as such:

1-Unknown Chambers born, married, and died, at a time and place unknown, possibly had three sons --- Thomas (b.abt. 1775), Andrew, and John (b.abt. 1786).

2-Thomas Chambers was b. abt. 1775, d.April 09, 1856, in Washington Co., Pennsylvania, m.Elisabeth McCullough, d/o Samuel and Margaret McCullough (she b.abt. 1774, d.August 09, 1855). Both are buried in the Presbyterian Cemetery in East Buffalo. This may well be the same Thomas Chambers who applied for naturalization in Washington County, Pa., in May 1840, having hailed from Ireland. Thomas and Elisabeth had the following children (not in order of birth):

1-James E. Chambers, born 1827 in Morris Twp., Washington Co., Pennsylvania, died after 1915 in Youngstown, Mahoning Co., Ohio.

Mentioned in the obituary of Esther Hannah (Graham) Snodgrass, who died Nov. 1915, age 79, at the family home in Buffalo Town, Wash. Co., Pa. At the time James E. Chambers was living at Youngstown, Ohio
