He married Barbara Deem in Campbell Co.,KY, August 5, 1803.(405) Barbara was born about 1777.(406) She was the daughter of Johan Nicolas Deem and Mary Magthalena Dils. Barbara died October 1, 1846 in Indiana. Her body was interred after October 1, 1846 in Adams Twp., Decatur Co., IN., St. Omer's.(407) William & Barbara Deem Chambers lived in Preble Co., Ohio about the time Catherine was born. Later, they moved to Shelby Co., Indiana and were both buried at St. Omer's Cemetery in Adams Twp., Decatur Co., Indiana. Probate Order Book E., pg. 363 lists appraisal of William Chambers' personal property on Dec.19, 1845. There is a suite for partition in the Complete Record Book J, in Decatur Co.,IN., May 1846- Sep. 1848, pp. 213-224. This gives the suite for partion of William's estate and lists his heirs. Probate Order Book E. pp. 431-434, has the sale bill of the personal property of William Chambers. On May 9, 1848, in Probate Order Book F, pg. 446 of Decatur Co.,IN., Thomas Deem is appointed to sell real estate to pay off debts of the estate.

William Chambers and Barbara Deem had the following children:

child 8 vii. William Jr. Chambers(415) was born before 1824. William & John filed suites in probate for their parts of William Sr.'s estate in 1846, I believe they both were over 21.
