I am searching for the parents of James Abraham Chambers, born 12 Nov 1827 in Tennessee. I know that his mother's first name is Nancy, and that she was born about 1799 in South Carolina, but her maiden name is unknown. James stated that his father was born in South Carolina in both the 1880 and 1900 census, and I assume his father died before 1850, because in the 1850 census, Nancy is seen living with her daughter, Louisa. James has two known brothers, Elisha (born abt. 1823 in Tennessee), and Jesse Maxwell (born 1826 in Tennessee). and one known sister, Louisa, born about 1828.
