Chambers, Mrs. John
The East Liverpool Tribune
Mrs. John Chambers, a highly respected lady of Hancock county, died at her home back of New Cumberland Tuesday afternoon (Aug. 21, 1906) after an illness extending over a period of eight years. Mrs. Chambers was born at the old homestead near where she died about 58 years ago, and had spent her entire life in that neighborhood.
Eight years ago her health failed, and since that time she had been an invalid. Three weeks ago she became worse and was compelled to take to her bed from which she never arose. Mrs. Chambers was a devout Christian lady of the Presbyterian faith, and her entire life was one of goodness filled with acts of true Christian kindness which endeared her to a large circle of friends and made her beloved by her relatives. Her sufferings were endured without complaint, and when God called, she went to Him prepared for judgement.
Besides her husband the following children survive: Mrs. John Freeman, of Toronto; Miss Harriet Chambers and Alva Chambers, living at home. The following brothers and sisters also survive: John, Robert and Willian Wilcoxen, of Wellsville; Mrs. Whitehill, Mrs. William Jones, Mrs. James Roach, Mrs. George Chambers and Mrs. Huston, all living on adjoining farms near the old homestead, back of New Cumberland.
The funeral was held from the house this morning at 10 o'clock, with Rev. W. E. Hill, of the East Liverpool Presbyterian church, officiating. Interment in Fairview cemetery.
