Joseph Chambers

Joseph Chambers, who died on Monday, in Valparaiso, was born in Erie Co., Ohio, March 29th, 1834. Came to this state with his parents in 1848. He was a member of a family of six children, all of whom, with their parents, are dead except two. He was a soldier in the late war and drew a small pension from the government. He had been painfully afflicted for many years and his death was truly a release. He leaves a wife, two children, and a brother and sister to mourn his loss.

The funeral services took place at Blachley's Corners on Tuesday at 3:30 p. m., Elder Riley conducting the exercises, after which his remains were laid in the burying ground near by.
