1909 Reunion of William Henry Slicer Chandler Family
William Henry Slicer Chandler died in 1898 in Columbus, Ohio. The two photos below were taken at a gathering of his family in 1909. In the center of each picture is his widow, Adelaide (Addy) Eliza Bruce Chandler, matriarch of the family. The smaller group (top photo) includes, in the back row, James Garfield Chandler, Lawrence Washington Bruce Chandler (Bill’s grandfather), Charles Edward Chandler, Howard Bright Chandler, and Homer Payne Chandler, and in front, Lucretia Adelaide Chandler, Adelaide Bruce Chandler, and Mary Emily Chandler.
In the larger group below at the same 1909 reunion, Paul Guy Chandler, Bill’s uncle, is at left on the first row. (See Bill’s tribute to Paul in the Autumn 2007 Chandler Family Association Newsletter.) Bill’s father, Robert Bruce Chandler, is the boy who moved his head.
