I have an ancestor, James Abraham Chambers, who I have been researching for close to two years with little to no success. I have asked about him on here before, but I received nothing more than copy pasted family trees from ancestry with no sources, and I would like some help from someone more experienced than me in finding the parents of this man.
James was born November 12, 1827 somewhere in the state of Tennessee, and died January 16, 1905 in Boyle County, Kentucky. His father's name is not known, as he is believed to have passed before the 1850 Census. His mother's first name is Nancy, and all that is known about her is that she was born roughly in 1799, and she died April 27, 1879 in Boyle County, Kentucky. They were both said to have been born in South Carolina. He has two known brothers, Elisha and Jesse Maxwell Chambers, and one known sister, Louisa Chambers. James married Susannah Hawkins, daughter of Pleasant Hawkins and Elizabeth Martin, some time around 1846.
