  • Anne Chambers owned 49% of largest private cable company
  • Her three heirs now among the world's 400 richest people

The son and two daughters of 95-year-old Anne Beau Cox Chambers are among the world’s 400 richest people after she distributed her stake in closely held Cox Enterprises to her heirs.

James Cox Chambers, 58, Katharine Anne Johnson Rayner, 70, and Margaretta Johnson Taylor, 73, share 49 percent of the Atlanta-based company and have individual fortunes valued at $5.1 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
