1919 pioneer recollections of
c. w. chambers
"My sixty-two years in nebraska"
published in the nebraska state journal
In a 1919 article that was reprinted in the Argus, C. W. Chambers set forth a few recollections about his life in Nebraska. He described his father -- a reader, dreamer, visionary, inventory -- and his father's death at age 46. He mentions his brother "Cad." He mentions Table Rock people such as Uncle Joe Parrish and, with great compliments, Henry Freeman, who lived in a dug out. He also mentions Polk Nesbitt, Rice Martin (G. R. Martin), and Dr. Gandy, who set his father's broken leg. He also mentions R. V. Muir of Brownville, who was one of the officers of the Nebraska Settlement Company.
