John David Chandler and Maude A. McCalla

John David Chandler
born June 20, 1882, Jefferson, Ohio
died January 29, 1946, Bycurus, Ohio
Maude A. McCalla Chandler
born March 20, 1882, Galion, Ohio
died November 6, 1935, Bucyrus, Ohio

This Chandler family is part of Group 9 in the Chandler DNA Project. Group 9 is composed of descendants of William and Annis Chandler of Roxbury, Massachusetts, formerly of Bishop’s Stortford in Hertfordshire, England.

At right are John David Chandler and wife Maude with daughter Gladys Ruth Chandler (1905-1932) in a photo made in April 1906.

The lineage from the recognized ancestor of Group 9 to John David Chandler is as follows:
William Chandler b 1595 ENG > Capt. Thomas Chandler b 1628 ENG > William Chandler b 1659 MA > Moses Chandler b 1695 MA > Sanborn Chandler b 1734 NH > Joseph Chandler b 1753 NH > Joseph Chandler b 1786 NH > John Sanborn Chandler b 1833 > Jacob Franklin “Frank” Chandler b 1859 OH > John David Chandler b 1882 OH.

Dick Chandler, co-administrator of the Chandler DNA Project, wrote: “We have a DNA project participant whose test showed that he belongs to that genetic family – he descends from John David Chandler’s brother, Boyd Franklin Chandler . . . . We were very glad to have this DNA confirmation, because George Chandler’s magnum opus of William and Annis descendants stops with the birth of Joseph Chandler in 1786 in NH. The DNA result confirmed that this was the same Joseph who moved to OH and continued the line there, which went > John Sanborn Chandler > Jacob Franklin Chandler > John David Chandler.”

Gerald David Chandler (1907-1975) and his wife Ruth Virginia Athey (1910-1975)
(in both photographs above)

Gerald, son of John David Chandler, and Ruth had three children: James Norman Chandler (living), Michael David Chandler (1939-2006), and Ruth Anne Chandler Salyers Rees (living).

Michael David Chandler is shown in the photo at left.

CFA member Jerry Rees, a great-grandson of John David Chandler and grandson of Gerald David Chandler, has submitted these photographs and information that will help bring this family up to date in CFA records.

1932 Moore-Chandler Family Reunion

Elizabeth Moore, descendent of William & Annis Chandler. Her most recent chandler is Orpha Chandler & William Moore. Here is a photo of the 1932 Moore-Chandler family reunion. Elizabeth believes the reunion took place in Madison, WI at the Gisholt Home for the Aged that Orpha & Will were running. This photo would have been in front of their residence and the building in the back should be the nursing home.

The identifications were acquired from people in the early 2000’s, trying to identify the attendees before many of the elders in the family passed. As such, some attendees are not identified and some may be misidentified. If you can provide further identifications or corrections, please contact Eileen at
