In the 1790's or early 1800's, my ancestor, THOMAS CHAMBERS and his wife KATIE LAWSON, brought up to 20 slaves from NC to what is now Scott Co., TN to clear land. Many who died are buried in the family cemetery near Buffalo Creek in Scott Co. Their graves are unmarked, yet clearly evident. I would like to recognize these people by restoring names and dates if available. Several members of my family are researching the CHAMBERS of Scott Co. They need to remember all who helped the family prosper in the wilderness.
