The Tipton Advertiser, Sept 28, 1865

Died, at his residence, near Tipton, Ia., Aug. 30th, Dr. Mustoe Chambers, in his seventy-six year.
Dr. Chambers has been a resident of Tipton for the last fifteen years, and has maintained a reputation of unblemished character, as a man and as a Christian. He was born in Staunton, Virginia, Aug. 10th 1790, and spent his youthful days in that city. He served as Adjutant in the War of 1812. After leaving the Army, he studied medicine and graduated at the Pennsylvania University, in Philadelphia. For twenty years he practiced medicine in his native State, successfully and extensively and for nine years his annual income from his profession was five thousand dollars. In the year 1830, he left Virginia and emigrated with his family to Dayton, Ohio. This was long before the day of railroads, and he made the journey in his family carriage. There he purchased twelve hundred acres in the richest part of Ohio, and spent his time in practicing medicine and managing his farm. In 1849, he removed to Iowa and settled near West Liberty. He came to Tipton in 1850. He made a profession of religion and connected himself with the Methodist Church about ten years ago. His gentle, manly manners, and his kind and gentle spirit endeared him to all our citizens. His end was peaceful and calm. He said all was right for the future and his hope of heaven was clear. He had seven children who survived him and they all gathered around his dying bed. A large concourse of people followed him to his grave, where he sleeps in hope of a glorious resurrection!
