Obituary for Alexander Chambers (from Chambers Family Newsletter, 31 December 2001, article by Veronica Potter and Anna Noe):

He departed this life on the 29th day of June 1857 in the one hundred and second year of his life. At the age of twenty-three he moved to Rutherford County, North Carolina; at the age of thirty-four he moved to East Tennessee; four years later he moved to kentucky, and three years after that he moved to Illinois. On that trip he got lost from the company of movers, under the following circumstances:

He went out to shoot a buffalo from a herd that was in view, and after having killed one and ten from the carcass as much as he could carry, it being about sunset, he missed the trail, there being no roads. Darkness set in, he traveled all night, and for sixteen days wandered alone in a then entire wilderness. The company after stopping one day and searching for him, moved on supposed that he had been killed by Indians. On the seventeenth day, the Indians found him nearly starved and took him to their camp, placed him in the care of an old squaw, who fed and nursed him for a few days, and then sent two of their warriors with him to his family. He had been missing for twenty-seven days.
