James Chambers

I was staying at the General Lewis Inn once and spotted this article on the wall.  The innkeepers let me take it down and copy it.  I then received permission from the Newspaper to reprint it.  Most of all I liked this statement "And none wears the Lewisburg mantle of aristocracy more than James Chambers". 
Husband of Nellie Chambers.  Born in Lewisburg (Bakersville).  1927 - 1930 an employee of Fidel Construction Company (where he ran a drill and shot dynamite).  A Gardener/Dishwasher/Bellman at the General Lewis Inn where he worked for 44 years (He started working there in 1930).  Member of the Mt. Tabor Baptist Church.  He was 66 in 1975.  Future research would be to check to see if he is the James Chambers, age 12, who appears with Alice Chambers in the 1920 Census, Greenbrier County, White Sulphur Springs District.
