    I see that several of you have roots in the Caswell Co and Person Co NC Harrelsons. Have any of you looked at the message from Mabel Chambers #133 on the Chambers board where she gives the children of William Chambers bn@1728. Of the 14 children, there are two married to Harrelsons: one Jane Chambers who married Ezekial Harralson (who died 1779)and my John Chambers who is believed to have married Rebecca Harrelson. Josias Chambers married in 1783 (Caswell Co NC) Nancy Stanfield. Elizabeth Chambers md Hugh Barnett. The Chambers, Stanfields, Harralsons, Barnetts, and Adams seem to be interrelated for several generations. Can anyone shed light on these families of Caswell Co, NC and then Person Co when it was split from Caswell. Thanks Meredith Adams Sheridan

    From "Book of Imigrants" found in Person Co. library
    The Muster of those that Live in Ye Treasurors Plant
    James Chambers in the Dutie 1620
    Living in Virginia Feb 16, 1623 At the Eastern Shore = James Chambers
    (James was the only Chambers listed in VA at that time).
    Church records show Edward's first son as named James. Since it was the custom to name the first son after the father's father and Edward lived in New Kent Co., very close to Williamsburg, I believe that it is reasonable to conclude that James is father of Edward.

    1998-2007 Swyrich Corporation - Certificate # 2536320072400681853 - names of early Settlers in US. They list James Chambers who setled in VA in 1620 among the name of early Settlers and James being the earliest.

    In April Court, 1625, James Chambers was placed upon a committee; again, in 1634, he was mentioned. Also, in 1625, Thomas and John Chambers were recognized in some way by the Virginia Court. The above were English representatives of the Chambers family.
