Margery Carolyn Bell Cambern
Birth: Aug. 10, 1828
Hickman County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Apr. 18, 1858
Jack County
Texas, USA

Margery was the daughter of Mage Thomas and Mary (McFalls) Bell. Siblings: 1. Sam and Louisa (Bell) Nelson; 2. Cyrus Bell; 3. Frank and Matilda (Bell) Duncan; 4. Jacob and Mary Virginia (Bell) Mathews; 5. Daniel and Mary (Bell) Kutch; 6. John and Nancy (?) Bell; 7. Hannibal and Mary ĎAmandy' (Hart) Bell; 8. Columbus and Amanda (Harris) Bell; and 9. Franklin Washington and Sarah (Bell) Bell.

Margery was only about nine years old when she travelled to Texas with her parents, older siblings and [future husband] James B. Cambern on the Steamboat Black Hawk when it exploded on December 27, 1837. (James Cambern was related to the Bell's, his Mother's maiden name being Bell.)

Margery Bell married James B. Cambern and they had seven children together.

Five members of the Cambern family were killed by Indians (and several white men) on April 18, 1858. James B. Cambern and sons Luther and William were killed in a field. Their graves are marked by the etched sandstone. Margery and infant son James, Jr. were killed on top of a hill and their graves are marked by the monument. Baby daughter Flora Alice died several months before the Indian raid and her body was moved to the site of her father and brothers grave. Children Tom, Mary and Dewitt "Witt" survived, Tom dying in his early twenties.
