SAMUEL B. CHAMBERS, who enjoys the esteem of his fellow-citizens in general, and is the superintendent of a somewhat noted property in Pickaway township, known as the S. H. Ruggles estate, which comprises some 1,650 acres of well-cultivated land, was born in Hocking County, Ohio, Mar. 24, 1865.  He is a son of Henry and Mary A. (Hunter) Chambers.
    
The parents of Mr. Chambers are natives and residents of Hocking County, where Alexander Chambers, the grandfather, a native of Pennsylvania, was an early settler.  The family has always been one of thrift and reliability.
     Samuel B. Chambers was reared in Hocking County and was mainly educated in the public schools at Tarlton.  He has always devoted himself to agriculture and owns 150 acres of land in Hocking County.  From Hocking he went to Fairfield County, where he lived until 1894, when he came to Pickaway County, residing for a time in Washington township.  After accepting the position of superintendent of the Ruggles estate, in 1897, he removed to Pickaway township.  The successful management of so large a body of land entails much  hard work and requires the exercise of constant vigilance and the possession of good judgment.  This is one of the largest estates in Pickaway County.  It may justly be stated that it is also one of the best managed.
     Mr. Chambers was married Nov. 9, 1893, to Sarah J. Gayman, a native of Canal Winchester, Franklin County, Ohio, who is a daughter of Daniel Gayman, late of Franklin County.  Mr. and Mrs. Chambers have two bright, interesting sons - Henry Gayman and Daniel Hunter.
     Mr. Chambers
is an independent thinker and votes according to his own convictions.  In all local matters he is found to be liberal minded and public-spirited and enjoys the reputation of a first-class citizen.  Both he and his wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Kingston, in which he is serving the official board as steward.
