I am researching a James Alexander Chambers who married a Caroline Wright Norman. They lived in Miami County and Greenwood Kansas during the 1850s to 1870s. They had 15 children. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Chambers: Robert, Alexander, James Alexander, etc

From my information, it appears that Robert Chambers, born 1635 in Stirling, Scotland married Marioun Cloggie on 6-30-1640.
They had Benjamin, Peter, Alexander, born 1640 in Scotland, and John, born 1677 in Scotland and died 1747 in Trenton, NJ. The above Alexander had three sons: Reynolds, Peter (settled in VA) and Henry.
Reynolds had four sons: Samuel, b. 1720, David, b. 1725, James Alexander, b.`728, and Edmund, b. 1739. James Alexander Chambers, married Nancy Windsor either in England or North Carolina and moved to KY then Indiana Owens County) in 1818.
All of these Chambers named their children after brothers and sisters, so your James Alexander is probably named after the original James Alexander Chambers via one of his sons or grandsons. James Alexander Chambers was a Primitive Baptist Minister and had many children. You may find much information on Family Tree Maker under Descendants of Robert Chambers.

I have just returned from Edinburgh, Scotland and visited the General Registry Office of Scotland. They have all recorded birth and marriage records dating back to 1553. In searching their on-line data base I found that Robert Chambers of Falkirk did marry a Marioun Cloggie on June 30, 1640 BUT THEY DID NOT have any children. Robert Chambers was married again June 6, 1645 in Falkirk to a Christian Wilson(e) and she is the mother to John Chambers, born November 11, 1649. This is the ONLY SON Robert Chambers had. Alexander and Peter Chambers have different parents. Benjamin's name did not appear in the Scottish records for this period.
Hope this helps! James V. Chambers of Fort Wayne, IN

Hello,
I am the son of Roy Francis Chambers, who is the son of James Warren Chambers, who is the son of Aaron G. Chambers who is the son of Aaron Chambers who is as far as i can figure it out is the son of John Edmund b. 1739 in the colonal times. My this GG GF I can pick him up under Porters Family, married twice and died Iowa, Union Haerison. I can go backwards and forwards, but i can't find much about him. I read a James Chambers inheriting property from Henry's wife if I am reading correctly. If that is the case, then Henry Chambers becomes my 4th generation vs John Edmund Chambers. Of course I will keep digging!
Respectfully
Thomas Paul Chambers
