Mary Jane Wade Chandler, wife of Robert Bailey Chandler (Genetic Chandler Family 7A)

Mary Jane Wade Chandler

The photograph at right is a copy of the only known portrait of Mary Jane Wade Chandler, matriarch of a large group of Mississippi Chandler descendants. Mary Jane Wade married Robert Bailey Chandler on February 15, 1844. They were both born in Georgia, he on July 24, 1820, in Jackson County, and she on January 16, 1828, in Marietta, Cobb County. They raised a family of 15 children in Winston County, Mississippi, where they are both buried at Antioch Cemetery. Robert Bailey died February 4, 1877, and Mary Jane died August 22, 1895. A photo of Robert Bailey Chandler’s grave marker can be seen on the Chandler Graves page on this website.

Mary Jane’s grave has never had a memorial, but that is being remedied in 2014. Several desendants are taking steps to put a marker on her grave. We hope to tell more of that story soon.
