Looking for parents of James Abraham Chambers.

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.

That's the main issue I have with that findagrave page. The only proven thing on there is the name of Nancy.

No sources. There's not even an Abraham Chambers living at any point in South Carolina or Tennessee in the 1820's, 30's, or 40's, which is the area I have searched.

I saw your post and thought I could help. But since you did give some information and some information you were not sure of, I decided to go thru Find a grave. I found this:  Jesse Maxwell Chambers b. 1826 Tennessee and Died  11 April, 1888 Spencer Co. Ind. He is buried in the Little Pigeon Cemetery in Spencer Co, Ind. Find a grave memorial # is 90822860    --------------- James Abraham Chambers B. 12 Nov. 1827.-------died 16 Jan 1905  age 77 Boyle Co. Ky   Find a grave memorial # 96888778 Spouse:  Susannah Hawkins Chambers, B. 3 Feb 1824  S.C.  ----Died 18 Oct,1904 Boyle Co., Ky Chambers Family Cemetery   Find a grave memorial # 96888877

Abraham Chambers B. 1790  York, S.C. Died in Jackson Co/ Tennessee   Find a grave memorial # 96926098

Nancy Petty Chambers ---B. 1799 S.C.  and died 27 April 1879 Boyle Co, Ky 

Jesse married a Millie Davidson Chambers b. 1828- Tennessee and died 29 March 1880, Hamilton Co. Ill   find a grave memorial # 55090239.  She is in the Blooming Grove Cemetery. 

I also found 3 Elisha Chambers in Find a grave that come close to Jesse and James's birth but since I don't know Elisha and I don't have his exact date of birth, Its hard to say which one is your kin.  I hope I have given you some help and If you need anything more just let me know. nancy

All the information on Findagrave is what's available. The maiden name of Nancy is completely unproven, as is his fathers name.
