REBECCA JANE CHAMBERS was born 1816 in MS. I believe she the daughter of a Jacob Chambers. She married EDWARD I. WATKINS June 14, 1832 in Wilkinson Cty, MS. She married BYTHEL or "Bethel" WHITAKER WRIGHT April 19, 1839 in Wilkinson Cty, MS. He was born 1812 in MS, and died October 24, 1865 in West Feliciana Parish, LA. They had several children, one being a son named Howard Wright.

HOWARD E. WRIGHT was born 1838, and died February 08, 1880 in West Feliciana Parish, LA. He married PRISCILLA CAROLINE MCLAIN June 16, 1866 in West Feliciana Parish, LA, daughter of CHARLES MCLAIN and MARY MCCLOY. She died Bef. 1868. He married ALICE SMITH February 11, 1868 in West Feliciana Parish, LA. She was born February 22, 1850, and died April 03, 1913 in West Feliciana Parish, LA.

Does anyone know anything of Rebecca Jane Chambers, Bethel Whitaker Wright, or Alice Smith? They were all three born in Mississippi. Thank you.
