Chambers Cemetery

Today's Walk Through The Tombstones is at the Chambers Cemetery located at Eagle Pointe Resort.  This cemetery is located within the resort and requires permission from the security office.



There is a statue of a Civil War Soldier here.  I am not sure who the original carver was because it was repaired within the last couple of years.  I am also unsure of who the soldier is supposed to represent. If it is one of the family, I am not sure which one.  David Chambers was a Veteran of the War of 1812, but this statue doesn't really represent that time period.






~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is the grave of David Chambers.

Born: October 22, 1792, Madison County, Kentucky
Died: September 5, 1861

He was a Veteran of the War of 1812.

He was married to Sarah Meadows Chambers (1796-1877).  She is buried in the Chambes Cemetery with him.








They had five children:  
Elizabeth Chambers Chambers (1815 - 1886) - buried in Chambers Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.
William Pheamster Chambers (1818 - 1891) - buried in Chambers Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.
David Chambers (1826 - 1890) - buried in Clover Hill Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.
Joseph Chambers (1830 - 1911) - buried in Lance Hill Cemetery, Spokane County, Washington.
Jacob Chambers (1835 - 1888) - buried in Allens Creek Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.

Now we have the grave of David's wife, Sarah "Sally" Meadows Chambers.

Born: August 20, 1796, Greene County, Virginia
Died: August 5, 1877, Monroe County, Indiana

She was the daughter of Israel Meadows (?-?) and Barbara Green Meadows (?-?).  

She was married to David Chambers (1792-1861), who is buried at the Chambers Cemetery as well.

They had five children:  
Elizabeth Chambers Chambers (1815 - 1886) - buried in Chambers Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.
William Pheamster Chambers (1818 - 1891) - buried in Chambers Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.
David Chambers (1826 - 1890) - buried in Clover Hill Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.
Joseph Chambers (1830 - 1911) - buried in Lance Hill Cemetery, Spokane County, Washington.
Jacob Chambers (1835 - 1888) - buried in Allens Creek Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here is the grave of William Pheamster Chambers. 

Born: March 24, 1818, Monroe County, Indiana
Died: November 11, 1891, Monroe County, Indiana

His parents were David Chambers (1792-1861) and Sarah Meadows Chambers (1796-1877).  They are both buried in Chambers Cemetery.

He has four siblings:  
Elizabeth Chambers Chambers (1815 - 1886) - buried in Chambers Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.
David Chambers (1826 - 1890) - buried in Clover Hill Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.
Joseph Chambers (1830 - 1911) - buried in Lance Hill Cemetery, Spokane County, Washington.
Jacob Chambers (1835 - 1888) - buried in Allens Creek Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.

He was married to Elizabeth Jane Grayson Chambers (1818-1900).   It has been noted that William and his wife Elizabeth were moved to Allens Creek Cemetery in Monroe County, Indiana, but they are not shown on the interment records for that cemetery.  There are, however, several other Chambers listed at Allens Creek Cemetery.

He is listed as having three children:
Mary Ellen Chambers (1848-1848) - buried at Chambers Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.
Daniel B. Chambers (1848-1946) - buried in Mt. Ebal Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.
Sarah Catharine Chambers (1854-1854) - buried at Chambers Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Finally, we have the grave of Elizabeth Jane Grayson Chambers.

Born: May 18, 1818, Tennessee
Died: August 1900, Monroe County, Indiana

She was the wife of William Pheamster Chambers (1818-1891), who is buried near her in Chambers Cemetery.  There are notes stating that she and her husband were moved to Allens Creek Cemetery, but I can find no confirmation of that.

They had three children:
Mary Ellen Chambers (1848-1848) - buried at Chambers Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.
Daniel B. Chambers (1848-1946) - buried in Mt. Ebal Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.
