Comments and Notes
SITE MAINTENANCE: Business/Commerce/Organization -- Montrepose Cemetery, Kingston, NY
SOURCES: Hall, Edward Hagaman. The Hudson-Fulton Celebration 1909; New York Times, October 5, 1909.
COMMENT: Hall, above, refers to Chambers as "Sir Thomas"; however, the monument inscription today reads only "Thomas Chambers." The Times notice, above, comments: "Through an error the inscription on the monument gives Chambers the title of 'Sir.' This will be removed as soon as official notice has been received from London that he was not a Knight." Apparently, such notice was received; and also, the engraving of his name appears different than the remainder of the monument's lettering -- it's inset into the stone.
