James Chalmers was born in Ireland about 1784. In 1850 he lived with Jane Chalmers (his wife?) and family in Newberry, South Carolina. At that time he enslaved 13 children under the age of 8. There is no adult enslaved person listed with the children. This unusual situation will require further research.
