Is this the wikitree profile for the Robert Chambers found on pp 36, 37 of "The Great Migration?"

WikiTree profile: Robert Chambers

If the information on the profile about the Hopewell is correct, then I would think so, since there was only one man named Robert Chambers who came on the Hopewell.
thanks Anne.  I'll check out the info on the Hopewell and then proceed as I usually do.

Robert Chambers came to America/NY in 1766 with his brother and ended up in western VA.  As I understand the Great Migration, it occurred much earlier that that.  So I don't think this Robert Chambers fits that.

Thank you for your comment, Bill, but after reviewing the bio of Chambers-2321 again, I note it says "At age 13 in 1635 can be found entering Boston, MA on the ship Hopewell."  It also mentions the reign of Charles II and James II both of which occurred earlier than 1766.
