WILLIAM D. CHAMBERLAIN (1876-1951), Horse Trainer
Posted by: Bobby J Chamberlain (ID *****2796) Date: January 26, 2006 at 06:13:22
  of 929

I am seeking information on William D. Chamberlain (1876-1951), of Barbourville, Knox Co., KY. He was the son of Ninian A. Chamberlain, Jr. (1835-1908), of Knox Co., TN, and Amelia A. Ballinger (1853-1886) of Knox Co., KY, and is said to have worked as a horse trainer, possibly for Calumet Farms. William m. Ellen (Dishman) Collins around 1904. The couple had three daughters, one of whom reportedly d. in a train accident in 1929.

Here is a tentative chronology for William D. Chamberlain, based for the most part on information that is available on-line. It has also benefited to a degree from details supplied by Patricia Evans and others. But it is still regrettably confined to a bare minimum of details and is thus in great need of expansion. I am hoping that other researchers will come forward to fill in some of the many blanks.
