Randolph Patriots
Morris Co. Up


From a History of Randolph Township we find a listing of Soldiers in the War for Independence who lived or owned land in Randolph Township. [I have added the additional information that is found below each name from various sources readily found in the libraries of Morris County. Any discrepancies that I found in the records are noted by braces [  ]. ]

Source: A history of Randolph Township : Morris County's first bicentennial community / edited by Richard T. Irwin. 1st ed. Ironia, N.J. : American Revolution Bicentennial Observance Randolph : printed by Exposition Press, 1976, pp49-57.

CHAMBERS, John
  m. Rachel Hulbard [Hubbard] of Mendham
  deserted 31 May 1779 [there is discrepancies here, some sources state he d. 1778]

[The above is from the book Randolph Patriots and it is wrong.  I descend from this John Chambers and I have researched him and the man (Chalmers or ??) who did marry Rachel Hubbard.   He did die in 1778 in a British prison in New York.   John Chambers served under Col. Malcom and Spencer and was at Valley Forge in the winter of 1778.   Eventually he was part of Sullivan's army (Oliver Spencer) and was "assigned" to cut a road for the army to follow from Easton, PA to Wilkes Barre.  He deserted at Pocono Pines May, 1779.   In 1793 he was in Bath, New York, 1800 in Ontario County, New York. 

I am submitting this because in spite of many queries and posts I can find no one who seems to have any interest in the Chambers of Morris County.   I am hoping that if you can find a way to post this correction to this reference book, someone might be found who should be researching the Chambers rather than Rachel Hubbard and her husband. 
Thanks.
