Chambers-Pearl Cowden Chambers: Memories
of six children. Christian man who was quite intelligent.
Worked in coal mines for 50 years and received his 50-year pin.
Had a farm where he raised crops, anus cows, pigs, etc.
Butchered meat...extremely hard working man. Great Father and
Husband. Had hearing difficulty in later years...always had a
wonderful sense of humor. Had a mining accident and loss part of
one finger. Died of a stroke at 76.
Pearl--Mother of six children. A wonderful Christian lady who put her family first. Worked extremely hard in life--loved flowers and gardening. Terrific cook--especially her pies and fried chicken. She was always there for her family. Pretty blue eyes. Got married at a very young age like most women in those times. Had her first baby 2 years later. Loved to sing. Always kind and loving--wanted the best for her children.
