1.1 Edmund CHAMBERLIN1
Birth: 1 Nov 1772, prob. Newbury, Orange Co., Vermont,1
Death: 17 Mar 18301

The original genealogy of the Old Chamberlain Association of America carried this line forward. Nothing further is known, per David Conrad Chamberlin's FGR. However, he is mentioned, with his brother Ephraim, as having been a participant with Philemon Wright & company, in the 1806 Royal land grant in Hull in 1806.1

Spouse: Jane EDEY1
Birth: 11 Jun 1780, Randolph, Vermont, USA1,2
Father: Luther EDEY (1754-)
Mother: Mary EVANS (1756-1842)
Marr: 1813, prob. Hull Twp., York Co., Quebec

Children: George Washington (1814-1879)
Mary (>1814-)

1.1.1 George Washington CHAMBERLAIN2
Birth: 1814
Death: 1879

The name of this son, and his wife Emily Kidder, from GenForum Chamberlain postings, dated 25 Oct 1998; 7 Jan 2001; 4 Aug 2001; also Chamberlain Message Board posting dated 3 Jan 2000, by Beth Cotter, sources not stated. She says "quite a few of my Chamberlains come from the Roxbury, Oxford and Northfield areas of Mass."

G.W.C.'s mother was Jane Edey, who married Edmund Chamberlin. Until fairly recently, little was known about her origins, except that her brother Moses came to Hull from Randolph, VT in 1805, and that she, her brother Samuel and their mother followed in 1806. (Moses married Edmund's sister Betsy). Thanks to research by John Henry Edey, P.M.O. Evans and Angus McLean Gilday, we now believe their parents may have been Luther and Mary Edey. As this is ongoing research, a brief resume is included, subject to correction/addition as more is learned. (Herry Edey, of Edmonton, is a great great grandson of Moses Edey & Elizabeth Chamberlin, so fourth cousin to all my generation of "Chamberlin Cousins"). AMG 1986 April.

Spouse: Emily KIDDER
Birth: 1837, Quebec, Canada2
Death: 1885, Colorado, USA2
Marr: 8 Jun 1853, Ottawa, Carleton County, Ontario, Canada

1.1.2 Mary CHAMBERLIN2

Data for Mary, her husband, and family, from Beth Cotter's GEDCOM file.

Spouse: Jeremiah MULLIN2
Birth: 1 Jan 1824, Goulburn, Ontario, Canada
Death: 19052

Children: Edmund (Died as Child) (1844-~1860)
James (ca1855-) Edmund MULLIN2
Birth: 1 Jan 1844
Death: abt 1860

Cause of death: drowning. James MULLIN
Birth: ca 1855

Spouse: Melinda GRAVES
Birth: ca 1864
Father: Richard GRAVES
Mother: Ellen MOORE
Marr: 12 Apr 1879, Ottawa, Carleton County, Ontario, Canada

1.2 Abigail CHAMBERLIN3
Birth: 8 Jan 1775, Newbury, Vermont, USA3
Death: 23 Dec 18433

She has been confused with Eunice Abigail, daughter of Abiel & Elinor (Johnson) Chamberlain, who was born 14 Jan 1774.

CAA News, Vol. 9, #1, pp. 3-4, lists all children by Nathaniel & Mehitable and gives specific birth, marriage & death dates for Abigail, although sources not cited, unfortunately. WFT5-#3975 gives her birthdate as 14 Jan 1774, Family Bible lists her death date as 23 Oct 1843, IGI lists children with birth data as shown; records are confused with regard to birth dates/places for these children.

DCC's FGR states that the CAA News "says that Abigail first married Joshua Ricker, but it was a cousin, Eunice Abigail Chamberlain, who married this man (see LN4747). The CAA goes on to state that she married 2) William Hudson, c1820, that he was the son of Elisha & Susanna (Brigham) Hudson, b. c1770, and had previously married Anna Moss. In any case, this information is most confusing and probably wrong."

Birth: 9 Feb 1788, prob. Newbury, Orange Co., Vermont, USA1

The original mss genealogy of the old Chamberlain Association of America, carried this line forward. Nothing further known. Data from David Conrad Chamberlain's FGR for this family.

Chamberlain Chain, Vol. 26, p. 27, query submitted by Barbara Ferguson, supplied names of Nathaniel Chamberlain's children, previously unknown except for Edmund. She also supplied names of spouse & ch. of son Ephraim, b. Oct 1816, and wishes to correspond with descendants.

Ref. Chamberlin Message Board postings, dated 14 Jul 1999; 6 Sep 2000, by Barbara Ferguson, who is "looking for name of Ephraim's mother who married Nathaniel Chamberlin in Quebec, Canada." Probably the same Barbara as listed above. Ref. JBP's response, dated 10 Sep 2002, discussing the Chamberlain lineage, and speculation concerning the identity of Nathaniel's wife Lydia, whom he evidently married c1813 - early 1814, probably in Quebec, but possibly in England or elsewhere. JBP advised search of military and land records.

Corrected spelling is probably Mellisa or Melissa. Also spelled Melessa in Chamberlain Key, Vol. IV, No. 4, p. 91, Query #127, submitted by WCGS, Carmen Coleman Keys. She provides birth, marriage and death date. See also family tree for this family, in Chamberlain Key, Vol. IV, No. 2, p. 34. See also posting by Carmen Keys, dated 7 Mar 1999, in correspondence with Debby Was:

"My ancestor, Melissa chamberlin b. in 1814 married Ellis Campbell in Hull, Bytown Quebec, CAN. Melissa and Ellis moved to MI where they both died.... My Melissa's father was Nathaniel, mother Lydia. We think they came to the Hull area from newbury VT. Not much is known aout Nathaniel, b. 1788 but his father, Nathaniel b 1746 married Mehitable elliot.

Howard Fraser was working as a logger in the summer months up near Prince Rupert, B.C. and in the winter he had a trap line and prospected for gold and other metals. One day he was holding someone else's team of horses (they hauled logs with horses back then) and they ran him down, breaking his back. So they shipped him down to New Westminister, B.C. to the Royal Columbian Hospital. It happened to be that my grandmother Dora (26) was a volunteer at the hospital writing letters for the invalids. Love happened and when he was recovered, they married and then headed north again to Prince Rupert because he could not find work here.
Howard and Dora's three girls ran wild with the children of the Indian village there on the cove, picking berries for pie and jam. The ladies at the village felt so sorry for the little girls with no mother and treated them so well. The old chief Maquinna, would visit grandfather often. Grandpa who spoke the trade language, Chinook, and became a trusted friend who would translate the letters the government send the native villages and would help the chief write the replies in English. The girls all learned the native language and spoke it as well as they spoke English. Then the war (WW 2) came and grandfather was made a Rocky Mountain Ranger, for the home front. The way communication was done on the west coast here was by wireless. This was morse code and it went from light to light, to a main wireless station and again from light to light, all the way from California to Alaska. Example: To Howard Chamberlin, Nootka. Baby girl born Victoria. The message would pass from lightkeeper to lightkeeper to Nootka and then stop there. Each lightkeeper was issued binoculers and a gun. In time they noticed a Japanese submarine, then a small aircraft carrier that had a little plane. The plane would circle the light close enough you could make out the pilots face. No doubt he was Japanese. They watched and waited. Then one day just before dusk it started lobbing shells at the Estevan Point Wireless station, one light north of Nootka. He sent the message south and then put his kids down in the rocks out of harms way, thinking he'd be next. Luckily no one was hurt and communications were only temporary interupted as the wireless operaters ran like hell but the poor natives in the village behind were long gone. If the gods were that angry, they were going to be scarce. It took some convincing before they were going to come back and be sitting ducks. The rest of the war was pretty quiet.... for Howard his 65 th. birthday came and went. He was froze to the light for the rest of the war. He could not leave and he knew the area to well too replace him.
Howard retired to Langly, BC on a small acerage in 1950. He had a heart attack and was in hospital. Then on the day before he died he headed out for home walking. They busted him and took him back and he died that night in hospital. The family was not impressed that they didn't just leave him alone and let him go home.

I also have another child for Benjamin & Mary Jemimi. An adopted daughter named Pearl. I remember her husband Uncle Jimmy Rogers and his second wife Amy, who visited us as long as he could drive. I'll update this as soon as I can locate her death record but it would seem that this Pearl, who my aunt was named after was the light of this family's eye. After all the boys came this little sweetie named Pearl. She married Uncle Jimmy and was pregnant with her first baby. I guess Uncle Jimmy worked as a butcher and he would come home with these white bloody aprons. Then someone told her that to get the blood out you had to soak them with kerosene first. So she did and blew herself up. Uncle Jimmy went running in the kitchen , with fire everywhere and tried to find her but he couldn't. When he came out of the house his skin on his face and arms were dragging the ground, he was so badly burnt. It turned out she was under the table, where the blast had sent her which is why he couldn't find her. With the whole kitchen on fire he was only able to check area's he could reach, which is so tragic. I remember his face looking weathered but never knew that it was burns until the other day. In fact I knew there was a sister but had never heard more than she was married to Uncle Jimmy and had died in a house fire. 14

Data on Edmund Chamberlain and his family from Chamberlain Chain, Vol. 26, query p. 27, Editor's response to William Atheling Dale. Surname changed to Chamberlin to conform with his lineage. Marriage not listed in IGI record. Initially presumed by JBP to be the father of Emerson and Benjamin Chamberlin, who are living in close proximity to Edmund at the time of the 1881 census, but only Emerson is his son, whereas Benjamin is the son of Edmund's brother, Ephraim.This family is listed as ethnic Scottish in census records, which suggests that Edmund's parents or grandparents came from Scotland. However, JBP suggested that Edmund might instead be related to the Chamberlain family, descendants of Richard(1) Chamberlain of Braintree, MA, which migrated from New England to the area of Hull & Gatineau in Quebec, across the river from Ottawa. This turned out to be indeed correct, as shown in this lineage.31

History of Newbury, VT, p. 509, says " ... Elizabeth married a Mr. Johnson, an Englishman. After their marriage they removed to Canada, where he died in 1824, leaving several children. After his death, Elizabeth returned to Newbury and educated her children. In 1852 she went south to live with her children, where she died seven years later." Only two children are mentioned in The History of Newbury: 1) William, who first became a teacher and then a merchant. In 1901, he is retired and living at at Pensacola, Florida. 2) Sophia Johnson, married Dr. S. S. Forbes, of Pensacola, Florida. Elizabeth died 21 Jan 1859, Bellville, Alabama.

She was the first wife of Tiberius Wright. Family Bible says she died 22 Jun 1817, and DCC's FGR lists her death as 22 Jun 1813, but this seems incorrect, since there was a child born in 1814. IGI lists marriage data, indicating marriage at Gonguel, Hull Twp., York Co., Prov. Lower Canada.1

Dear Robin Dudgeon:

In reply to your e-mail inquiry of 23 December concerning Alfred Hilton Chamberlin and further to Mary Munk痴 reply of 15 December, I wish to inform you that a search of the Winnipeg city directory of 1939 indicate that Alfred H. Chamberlin was a brakeman for Canadian National Railway. Perhaps, there might be some information about the pension claim dispute in his service file.

Canadian National employee痴 records in the western provinces are held in Library and Archives Canada regional office in Winnipeg. Information on how and where to access the records, can be found on our Canadian Genealogy Centre Web site under Sources by Topic: Employment: Railways.
