From “Virginia and Virginians, 1606-1888,” published by H.H. Hardesty, we find this entry for Lorenzo D. Chambers, who resided at Cyclone, West Virginia:

Son of Ulysses and Rebecca (McDonald) Hinchman, was born Dec. 25, 1833, in Logan county. W.Va. His father was born April 6, 1817, in Monroe county, W.Va., but was for many years an honored resident of Logan county, where he died March 7, 1882; his wife, and the mother of the subject of this sketch, was of one of the oldest and wealthiest families of this section; her father served with distinction six years in the Revolutionary war; she died April 3, 1887. Lorenzo D. Hinchman was married Jan. 25, 1870, to Elizabeth A. Chambers, who was born March 23, 1842, in Logan county, W.Va. They have issue: Laura, born Nov. 9, 1870; Grace, July 26, 1873; and Rosa, June 22, 1877; one son, Walter, was born Aug. 224, 1878. Mrs. Hinchman’s parents were both born in Monroe county, W.Va., and both died in Logan county; the father, born Aug. 2, 1790, died Jan. 14, 1876; and the mother, born Aug. 20, 1794, dying Sept. 9, 1876. Mr. Hinchman is engaged in the timber business in connection with farming: his post office is Cyclone, Logan county, West Virginia.
