"Sad Coincidence"
"Uncle" Elisha Chambers and his son, 'Squire Newton Chambers, of Stillwater, arrived from Torrent with the remains of their son and brother, Jeff Chambers, who died in the Indian Territory December 16. He was buried temporarily in the Territory while the widow and children returned here to arrange for the final interment. Just one year ago the deceased came here on a funeral errand, bringing the bodies of his wife and two children who had died in the Indian Territory. He remained a few weeks and on retuning to his western home took with him Miss Swango, sister of his deceased wife, as his bride. Now she has brought his body back from the Territory for burial at his old home, and with his surviving children will remain here.

(Information from Long Black Veil: Jefferson's wives Sarah Frances and Josephine V. Swango were 1st cousins not sisters.)
