CFA Genealogy Panel – 2011 Annual Report

The CFA Genealogy Panel considered 143 cases in 2011. Some cases were handled without submission to the panelists if a CFALD report could be provided or questions answered by Dick Chandler, GP Chairman, or Claudia Brocato, Secretary. “New” in member column indicates the inquirer joined the CFA about the same time their query was submitted to the GP or as a result of the GP’s efforts. CFALD refers to the CFA Lineages Database. DNA Group Number in bold indicates an actual DNA testee or close relative of testee. DNA Group Number with a question mark (?) indicates a supposition of genetic group. We have disguised the names of the inquirers and other living persons mentioned below to protect their privacy.

Any conclusions presented here should not be considered the final product of our research. Genealogy is a process and research will always be ongoing. If you would like to know more about any of these cases, please contact 

Visit the Chandler Family Association website at ChandlerFamilyAssociation.org for information about the Genealogy Panel, the Chandler DNA Project, the Genetic Chandler Families, and more. For information on the almost 60 (so far) genetically-distinct Chandler lines visit chandlerfamilyassociation.org/home/genetic-chandler-families/.

Some lineages below are abbreviated: JRR is a short version of John b. 1600 > Robert > Robert. The various lines of descent from John Chandler born 1600 can be viewed here: chandlerfamilyassociation.org/genealogy/members-and-their-lineage/descendants-of-john-chandler-1600-1658-2/.

Dick:
“This Abraham or Abram Chandler does not appear in the CFA Lineages Database
or any of the major New England lines. He is likely the Abram Chandler who
married Martha Hubbard in 1843 per “Illinois Marriages
1790-1860” at Ancestry.” He then supplied an extensive analysis from
census records of what is apparently this family in VT, NY, IL, OH, and NY.

Albert
Yancy Chandler

(ABT 1858 – 1 Nov. 1929) married Ida R. (Rebecca?) Chandler

Yancy’s father) and William Chandler (Ida R Chandler’s father).

Allen
(Allan) Chandler

(b. 4-10-1812, d. 1887) who married Temperance Davenport. They lived in The
Ware Place, South Carolina (first called Chandler, South Carolina) and ran
the Chandler School. Allen’s son was John W. Chandler, who married Mary Jane
(Molly) Mattison. Ancestry?

NG

Yes

 

Barry
supplied numerous census and burial records and information about Allen’s
children. SC r
esearch
is complicated because of lost records, and numerous distantly related
Chandler families settled in the area pre-Revolutionary War. Suggestions made
for future research. Unable to be sure of Allen’s ancestry. Research
continues.

Archibald
H. (possibly Henry) Chandler, 2nd Lt.,
was KIA June 10, 1944 when the P-47
Thunderbolt he was piloting was shot down by flak in Normandy. I am working

Responded
with information about several possible Archibald Chandlers:
Archibald H. Chandler,
born 1923 in London, Laurel County, KY, mother Hattie Pitner. First Lt
Archabald [sic] H. Chandler 812753 in the roster of U.S. WWII Dead, buried in
a TN cemetery.  Arch Chandler, born 1919 in Greene Co., TN enlisted in Fort
Oglethorpe GA in 1941 for the Army’s Air Corps branch. Suggested Department
of Defense for next-of-kin details.

Asa
Chandler

(b. 1780 d.1852) of Fayette County GA supposed son of John Chandler (b. 1755
d.1850) and Mary. CFA information puts me in the JRR-Joseph line. Seek more
info on John Chandler and Mary’s maiden name.  Inquirer’s lineage:
Asa>William Perry>Francis Marion > Barry Franklin>Bernie

Supplied
CFALD reports on family and ancestry of Francis Marion Chandler. Lineage: JRR

John did not match CFALD. Invited corrections and additions. Mary’s maiden
name not found. Inquirer’s daughter sent family info for CFALD. Put in touch
with researcher in the same family.

Benjamin
Chandler
born
1789 – Inquirer believes her Chandler line descends from George and Jane
Chandler, specifically Benjamin Chandler born 1789 married to Mary Luce born
Feb 19, 1875, married Nov. 24, 1812 in Sussex New Jersey. Children: Abraham,
Lucy Catherine, William A., Martha M. and Hannah E.

JR

No

 

1789
Benjamin was searched for in the descendants of George & Jane, of William
and Annis, and of Edmund of Duxbury – the three most likely ancestors – and
none of them contain a Benjamin of suitable age. Nor was he found in Quaker
records. A GP consultant found a record of Benjamin Chandler’s will in
Luzerne County, PA, and advice was given
on further research focused in NY State.

Benjamin
Chandler
born
1789, don’t know where, NJ or NY.

MS

No

 

Same
line as previous inquiry.  Supplied similar info and urged focus on NY State
where 1790 Census has at least 8 Chandler households including free white
males under 16 – Abraham, Enos, Joseph (2), Nathaniel, Robert, Samuel and
Solomon. One of Benjamin senior’s grandchildren was named Abraham, so
suggested research in Abraham’s 1790 home in Warwick, Orange County, NY.

Celestia
Chandler

b 1808 – Benjamin Harris (Wales) married a daughter of Celestia Chandler

Elizabeth
Chandler

(1630-1700) – Using Ancestry.com trees, Elizabeth married George Chowning
(1605-1634). Per “Early Virginia Immigrants: 1623-1666,” George was
sponsored by a “John Chandler” of Elizabeth Citie Co. in 1636.
Elizabeth came in the same ship as George?

DE

 

 

Asked

John born 1600 in England and that 1600 John’s father was Richard.

ST

No

3

Inquirer
has taken some convincing that her information acquired from the internet is
inaccurate. After numerous e-mail exchanges, she has provided details of the
descent from Hezekiah, which she has researched herself. More work is
required by Group 3 on the origins of Hezekiah. Dick said, “
Group 3 is an
under-researched line for us – would love it if you would let us know what
your lineage from Hezekiah is.” Nothing further from inquirer.

Hornett

– Inquirer wrote: “Researching Chandlers married to a Hornett and a
Plumridge. They are my parents family names.”

DkH

No

 

We
provided details of several Hornett /Plumridge marriages to Chandlers in
England. This prompted more questions, which were researched and answered in
detail.

Isaac E. Cobb and Frances “Fanny” Chandler (daughter
of Joseph Chandler who married someone whose last name was Farmer). The dates
of Isaac E. Cobb were (12 August 1805- 5 August 1852) though the dates of his
wife Fanny are not known.  Both are buried in Carroll County where they
ultimately settled after immigrating from S. Carolina into Georgia.
They first entered GA in the Franklin Co. area from Abbeville,

Jesse
Chandler

may have been the son of Whitfield Chandler, born 6 Nov 1783 in Orange,
Virginia and Sarah Neal, born abt 1790 in Green, Pennsylvania.  Jesse
Chandler born 19 Dec 1813 at Springfield, Fayette, PA; married Rachel Wright
on 20 Sep 1832 in Green, PA; died 21 Jul 1893 in Abingdon, Henderson, IL.
Siblings were:
Alfred Chandler born 1 Dec 1810 in Springfield
Maria T Chandler born 13 Sep 1814 in Springfield

KD

New

 

Responded:
“If Whitfield married Sarah Neal, he must have been remarried by 1850 since
he (aged 60 and surnamed Chanler) is with Lucinda aged 53 born VA in the 1850
Census of Hendricks, Shelby County, IN. In the 1860 Census he is aged 78 and
has Mary Chandler aged 65 with him at Sugar Creek, Shelby Co – she was born
at Monongahela which I think is now in WV. In the 1860 Census schedule an
“e” has been deliberately inserted in his name, making it
Whitefield.” . . . . “The family seems to have remained in PA until about
1845.  Suggested DNA test.

Jesse
T. Chandler

– My father is Richard Wayne Chandler (b 1952 in Oxford, NC) and my
grandfather was Marion Thomas Chandler (b Dec 5th 1891 d July 6th 1963). My
great grandfather was Alfred Yancey Chandler (b. Dec 28th 1850 [birth year is
likely incorrect] and d. Jan 15th 1912). It appears Alfred Chandler’s father
was Jesse T. Chandler (b 1831 d 1863) and mother Lucinda (married 1852 –
Person County NC). I made the Alfred to Jesse connection because Jesse died
in the Civil War and Alfred lived on/near the Yarborough farm with Lucinda
Yarborough Chandler at that time widowed living on the farm with her father.
I think Jesse’s father was a Henderson Chandler (b 1789 d 1870) and
Henderson’s father Joel Chandler (b 1740 d 1800) (Joel’s wife was Jean Hay).

RyC

No

Joel
Chandler Harris

– There has always been a connection that has been verbally passed down in my
family of a relation to the famous Joel Chandler Harris, through the Folds
family of Eatenton Georgia. Can you add any validity to this claim?

MB

No

7A

Probable
lineage from CFALD for Joel Chandler Harris provided: John Chandler >
Robert > Robert > Joell  > David > Tabitha S. Chandler > Ann
Mary Turman > Mary Ann Harris > Joel Chandler Harris. (Lineage not
verified by CFA.) Also sent an ancestry report from CFALD for Sara F. Dalton
who married an unknown Folds. Sara’s descendancy from John Chandler born 1600
follows a quite different path from that attributed to Joel Chandler Harris.

Joell
Chandler

b 1683 > David b 1728 – Inquirer asked for confirmation of lineage.

EH

New

Sent
reports from CFALD, asked for more information. Dick followed up that he has
info on this family to add to CFALD, suggests let’s pause this query until he
has that done.

John
“Jack” Archer Chandler
– 2010 case brought forward into 2011.
Searching for information on John “Jack” Archer Chandler, born
September 4, 1808 in Gallatin Co KY and died December 24, 1881 in Scott Co
IN. His son Christopher Columbus Chandler, born about July 22, 1852
in Scott Co IN, died August 13, 1907 is Connie’s ancestor.

CBy

No

 

Panelist performed
substantial KY research.  It appears there was a patriarch of the family,
Thomas Chandler, probably born in Virginia. His wife was most likely Rachel
Sibley. He had probably two maybe three sons who moved with him — William
Chandler, the eldest, Manson Chandler next eldest. and John or Jonathan A.
Chandler. Dick surmised William Chandler is the most likely candidate for the
father of John Archer “Jack” or “Jackson” Chandler.  

John
Anthony Wayne Chandler
– Inquirer believes her line is JRR William >Richard

name Wealthy Susan Chandler). Is there any information for the William
through John A W connections?

PnB

New

7A

Provided
CFALD reports with slightly different ancestry for Joseph Leftwich: JRR >
Joseph > Richard > John > Richard Carter > John Anthony Wayne.
Requested feedback. Correspondence is continuing.

John
Chandler

– Requested information regarding African-American Chandlers from Texas. She
has a family tree perhaps 4 generations back and the knowledge of the family
mixing with American Indians.

DvC

 

 

Provided
information about inquirer’s ancestors John and Laura in the 1900 Census of
Travis County, TX. John was probably the son of Lucinda Chandler, a Mulatto
born 1840 in Virginia (entry indexed by Ancestry as Chandeles.) Inquirer
plans to have her brother participate in the Chandler DNA Project.

John Chandler b 1600 – Could there be any
chance George Chandler was the father of John Chandler?

MtC

Yes

7A

Dick
responded that he finds that theory unconvincing and gave reasons why. Also
discussed some other alternate theories as to the parentage of John Chandler
b1600.

John
Chandler
born
1600 descendants – Inquirer is a descendant of Edmund Chandler and also
apparently of John Chandler b1600. She submitted lineage information, but the
John portion does not fit info in CFALD.

Dick
discussed discrepancies and invited collaboration to work out problems.

John
Chandler
,
Surrey, England – a USAToday article references a Mr Chandler playing the
earliest ever recorded game of baseball along with Molly (Mary) Flutter whom
he married in 1757. Both John and Mary’s father Peter, grandfather Henry and
Gt Grandfather Henry were Mayors of Guildford in Surrey, England. Inquirer
has performed extensive research on this prestigious line and seeks help with
origins, US connections, and reasons for grant of Arms.

GB

 

 

After a
discussion of Coats of Arms, Dick replied: “Unfortunately the name John was
given extensively among Chandler families, so it will be very difficult to
identify his ancestry. In cases like this we have found that Y chromosome DNA
testing can provide a breakthrough, sometimes immediately and in other cases
some time later when another participant joins in. I wonder if you could
persuade a living male Chandler with an unbroken male line to participate in
the Chandler project?”

John
Hasset Chandler

– Inquirer is seeking information about ‘John Hasset Chandler’ who was a
missionary in Siam in 1800s. I was wondering if you know of anyone who are
his direct descendants or have information about him such as documents,
photographs, and etc. Several years ago, I wrote an article about him in a
Thai magazine and would still like to know more.”

WN

No

Synopsis
of Dick’s response: I am sure you know that John Hasset Chandler was a
descendant of William and Annis Chandler who migrated from Hertfordshire in
England to the New World in the 1600s. I have consulted (John Chandler –
member of this family), and he knows no more about John Hasset Chandler than
appears in George Chandler’s magnificent book. Although we can’t help you

her family for inclusion in CFALD and pointed to the John descendants page on
the website. Dick suggested a DNA test as we do not yet have a testee who is
a descendant of Lewis.

Joseph
Chandler

(1769-1853) is shown with wife, Sarah Farmer, marriage date 1794 in North
Carolina. They are shown with eight children being born between 1795 and
1811. He moved to from North Carolina to Franklin Ga. However, I have also
found that he had two children, Simeon, born in 1785, and Ezekiel, born in
1791, both by a Nancy Wiley. I can’t find they were ever married. Do you have
any info on this? Also, her is my wife’s line that is shown on
Ancestry:Simeon !785-1850, married to Amelia? He is shown in the 1850 census
as living in Buncombe Co., N.C. John J Chandler 1820-?? married to Fannie
Long in Lincoln County, N.C. on 7/17/1838. Place of death unknown. Carlotta
“Lottie” Chandler, 8/22/1841, Lincoln Co, NC, married WIlliam W.
McCourry, died 12/91925, Yancy Co., NC. Lottie was my wife’s great
grandmother. Is this line from Simeon to Lottie correct according to your
records?

DoH

 

 

CFALD
has exactly what you have for Joseph Chandler 1769-1853 and Sarah Farmer. His
line of descent from John Chandler born England in 1600 is John > Robert
> Robert > Joseph 1695-1764. However, the father of Simeon and Ezekiel
is a different Joseph born 1755, spouse unknown, son of Elisha. This Elisha
was originally shown as the son of Joseph 1695-1764, but researchers of that
line assure me that there is no evidence of Joseph having a son named Elisha,
so his parentage is currently unknown. Simeon and Ezekiel were two of
Joseph’s five children. Simeon did indeed have a son named John, but he was
born in Buncombe County NC in 1822 and did not marry Fannie Long or have a
daughter named Carlotta, “Lottie” or anything similar. According to
the marriage records at Ancestry, the Chandler who married Nancy Wiley on 23
March 1801 was Josiah, not Joseph.

       I
have looked at the trees at Ancestry which show Simeon and Amelia. The
Chandler tree says that Joseph married Nancy Wiley on 23 March 1801, i.e.
AFTER he married Sarah Farmer, and that he had no children with Amelia. None
of the tree provide any evidence that Simeon’s parents were Joseph and Sarah
(Farmer) Chandler, other than other similarly unsourced Ancestry trees.
Bluntly, these trees are leading you badly astray. In circumstances like
this, it is vital to start with what you can be sure of, and work back from
there. I assume you are sure about Carlotta. I guess that she is the Lottey M
aged 10 who appears in the 1850 Census of Cleveland Co, NC with parents John,
a Millwright aged 36, and Francis aged 30 [may be Fanny Long but not
necessarily so], with siblings Mary J (8), Newton V (6) and Laban S (six
months), everyone born in NC. In the 1860 Census of the same place, John is
not present, Francis is 40, the others are as you would expect, and are
joined by Francis C (female aged 6) and John F (4). This could suggest that
John died about 1856.

        So,
the person you should be looking for is a John Chandler (not necessarily John
J) born about 1814 (not 1820). I have checked CFALD and can find no suitable
John Chandler born between 1812 and 1816. At present, I would have to answer
“don’t know” to the question about this John’s parentage.

Joseph
Edward Chandler, AKA Edward Chandler
. Family records
indicate he was born Feb 9, 1876 at Spring Creek (Shelby County?) AL. In
1900, he appears with the family of John S & Bettie Hames, Morgan County,
AL, and is listed as brother in law (single, age 22). He married Sarah
“Addie” Johnson April 26, 1903 in New Decatur, Morgan County, AL.
He and Addie can be found in Morgan County in the 1910, 1920, and 1930 US
Census. A son, Lonnie V, was born July 20, 1904.

Kendrick
Chandler

who lived in Montgomery County, North Carolina, USA from 1813-1899 – His
first wife was Elvira (who we are related to) and his second wife was
Margaret. He founded Chandler’s Grove church in Stanly County, North Carolina
and is also buried there. I am looking for information about his parents and/
or siblings. His son was Thomas Chandler (1856-1914 and his son was George
Washington Chandler (1886-1957) both of whom lived in Stanly County, North Carolina.

AH

No

7A?

A
thorough perusal of Montgomery County records did not help identify
Kendrick’s father. Two members of the panel spent a great deal of time on
this case. The panelists considered several possible fathers for
Kendrick/Kindrick. One possibility is Richard Wilkins Chandler born 1791 in
?VA died 1868 (JRR William > William > Daniel bn 1768 Halifax Co, VA).
Another Wilkins is in the 1850 Census of District 14, Cape Girardeau County,
Missouri, as a farmer aged 60 born NC. A study of Montgomery County, NC,
records revealed that the very first Chandler deed in the county was a
purchase of land by Kindrick in 1841. The panel members found records of
Kendrick’s descendants but were unable to come to a conclusion on his
ancestry. Research is continuing in contiguous counties. One panelist
considered a Timothy Chandler born 1766-1784 who was in Montgomery County in
1810 as a possible parent or relative to Kendrick. Timothy lived near the
apparent father of Kendrick’s future wife.

Kirby/Kerby

Larry
Donald Chandler

Our Grandfather was Frank or Francis Chandler.

MCCA

New

 

The
death of Francis Chandler on 5 September 1994 occurred at 34601 Brooksville,
Hernando Co, Florida.  He was born on 6 July 1915 and his SSN 385-05-1264 was
issued in Michigan before 1951.  This ties in with what you told us.

      I
have had less success with finding him in the censuses.  I think this is him
in the 1920 Census – Francis Chandler aged 16 born Michigan as were his
parents.  He has no recorded occupation and is living as a lodger along with
another lodger Robert Porter aged 14, in the Grand Rapids, Kent Co, Michigan
home of widow Emma Jones aged 70 born Kentucky and her divorced daughters
Winifred Jones (43) a beautician and Edna de Lyons (44) a masseuse.  My guess
is that Robert Porter is Winifred’s son (the 1920 census suggests that).  So
Francis Chandler might be a relative too, but I simply can’t find him in the
1920 census.  For the record, there is a Frances T Chandler shown as female
aged 6 born Michigan in the 1920 census of Decatur, Van Buren Co, Michigan.
The child is shown as the granddaughter of George (57) and Laura (55) Mahoney
born Michigan and Kentucky respectively. I mention this because of the
Kentucky connection [Emma Jones and Laura Mahoney of similar age] though for
this to have any relevance the census record of Frances’ sex would have to
have been incorrect.

       I
don’t see any evidence that Francis or Frank was born in Florida, though his
“going back to Florida” might suggest that.

verifying what is in there.

DM

No

Dick
explained in detail the extensive work and DNA testing we have done on this
Chandler of Concord line and the extent to which this has validated Charles H
Chandler’s 1949 book about Roger’s descendants. Inquirer’s descent is through
James Chandler via his son Jonathan, and  Jonathan’s daughter Hannah
Chandler who married Alpheus French Sr.

Rose
Ellen Chandler

born c 1896, married Thomas Jones c 1915 in Barnsley Yorkshire, died c 1957.

Bone. His father was Francis Chandler married to Henrietta.

AD

Dick was
able to confirm many of her facts and follow this family’s movements with
information from English census and other records. He believes Charles was
born about 1809 and may be the Charles P Chandler who died 11 September 1896
aged 88 and is buried in the old Northwold cemetery. This is the same line as
an earlier inquiry, apparently a coincidence.

Sarah

Dick’s
response: Some Schindlers of German origin living in Allied territories
during wartime changed their name to indicate to their neighbors where their
loyalties lay. Chandler proved to be phonetically the closest
“English” name to Schindler, and so it was adopted. He also invited
membership and suggested DNA testing.

Thomas (b. 1762) and Amasa Chandler
– I am from the line of James Chandler (b.1817), but I have conflicting
reports. One has his mother as Catherine “Katy” Chandler (b. 1800)
daughter of Thomas Chandler. However I took the DNA testing and my DNA is
Chandler. One genealogy report has James’ father as another one of Thomas’
sons.

MkC

No

Apparently
Catherine is well known to be a daughter of Thomas born 1762 and to be the
mother of two illegitimate children in her teens, both of whom were raised by
her parents. DNA evidence indicates that her son James is the ancestor of two
members of Group 2, but it seems unlikely that the father of James will ever
be known. The list of possibles must certainly include her own father and
brothers, plus various uncles and cousins.

Thomas
Chandler

lived in Warwickshire, England – married Martha Thomas at Coventry Cathedral
(St Michael’s Coventry) on 18 July 1808. I have a likely contender: a Thomas
Chandler, son of Robert & Elizabeth of Wolverton, was baptised on 11
March 1782. I am hoping for anything that might confirm my suspicions that my
ancestor Thomas Chandler was in fact this Thomas Chandler of Wolverton,

AnC

No

8

Response
from Dick: I came to the same tentative conclusion as you, that he was most
likely the son of Robert and Elizabeth Chandler or Chandley christened at
Wolverton on 11 March 1782 and that they were probably the Robert Chandler
and Elizabeth Roberts who married at Snitterfield on 15 June 1768. DNA
testing shows inquirer belongs to Group 8 – the common ancestor in England is
now being sought, possibly in the neighboring county of Leicestershire, the
ancestral home of Group 8.

Dick was

interesting person, and very brave.

Thomas
Willard Chandler descends from William and Annis Chandler from Hertfordshire
in England who migrated to America (Massa­chusetts) in 1637. The line has
been very successful in America; its members include Seth Carlo Chandler Jr
(astonomer discoverer of the “Chandler Wobble”), the Chandlers who
ran the LA Times, Chloe Chandler the great grandmother of President
Rutherford B Hayes, John Chandler the Honest Tory (a Loyalist at the time of
the Revolutionary War), and Raymond Thornton Chandler the famous author and
creator of the fictional detective Philip Marlow.  Supplied details of
Thomas’ life.

DNA Group 9 – As I perused your website, I saw the list of genetic Chandler
families. I have my line traced back to genetic family #9, William Chandler,
born 1595 in Hertfordshire, England, and died in 1641 in Roxbury, MA. I would
appreciate any information you might have farther back than this William.

Dick
responded, in part:With regard to the ancestors of William
1595-1641, there are two competing lineages in circulation. The one I
subscribe to is supported by entries in the original IGI as at February 1981
i.e. before the IGI was corrupted by unsubstantiated ‘member submissions’. It
runs: William 1595-1641 > Henry 1560-1618 > Thomas 1528-1611 >
Thomas 1500-1554 > Thomas 1468-1551. All births at Bishop’s Stortford,
Hertfordshire (please note spelling and punctuation). Membership was invited.

his father’s father is William Marshall Chandler who born MS in 1895 died
1935 and supplied other details.

Claudia
responded that William Marshall Chandler is not in CFALD. A
William Chandler was
found in the 1900 census for Beat 2, Carthage, Leake County, MS, who had a
son of the correct age named Marshall. Inquirer confirmed that his father was
born in Marshall County. Another panelist (Madonna) hopes to spend some time
following up on this.

William
Riley Chandler

born 1813-1814 in Franklin Co., GA.  Problem is I find WRC in both Perry Co.,
AL and Wilcox Co, AL on the 1850 Census. Married to Mary A. Filbert in Perry
Co and Elizabeth Ann Commander in Wilcox Co.  AL.  Believe him to be a son of
Zachariah and Sarah Echols Chandler from Franklin Co., GA.  He was apparently
married to both women at the same time (one in Perry Co., AL and the other in
Wilcox Co., AL) with brothers living with or near both. 

MaH

Yes

 

Unable
to validate inquirer’s starting point – that William Riley Chandler can be
found in both Perry Co and Wilcox Co, AL in the 1850 Census.  We can only see
the one in Wilcox Co, married to Elizabeth with children Mary, Martha,
Elizabeth, George and Francis.


Also, our records show that the William born 1814 in Franklin Co, GA son of
Zachariah Chandler and Sarah Echols was not William R but William H who
married first Mary Philbert in 1836, then Sarah Catherine McCain in GA in
1841, then Sarah Melissa Primm in AL in 1847. Advisd inquirer to re-examine
her research.

sharing of information and also DNA testing if she knows a male Chandler
relative.
