Hezekiah Amos and Elender Paralee Hollis Chandler - Hurricane Creek, MS
John William Chandler (1853-1930) family - Georgia



Hezekiah Amos and Elender Paralee Hollis Chandler
Hurricane Creek, Mississippi
Donna Gorda sent this photo of her great-grandparents, Hezekiah Amos Chandler and Elender Paralee Hollis Chandler, with some of their children.

Lineage: John Chandler b 1600 ENG > Robert Chandler b c 1629 VA > Robert Chandler b 1654 VA > Joell Chandler b 1683 VA > Robert Chandler b 1720 VA > Bailey Chandler b 1751 VA > Robert Chandler b 1775 NC > Robert Bailey Chandler b 1820 GA > Hezekiah Amos Chandler b 1861 GA.

The photo above can be dated to approximately 1905 by comparing the relative ages of the children with known birth dates. Back row, from left: Virgie, Pearlie, Albert, and Mary Susan (Sudie, Donna's grandmother). Front row, from left: James Manuel, Varnell T., John A., Hezekiah (father), and Elender (mother) holding Willie.


Family of Hezekiah Amos Chandler (#8) and Elender Paralee Hollis Chandler (#6) - this photo shows all the children.
  1. Virgie
  2. Pearlie
  3. Albert
  4. Mary Susan
  5. Willie
  6. Paralee (mother)
  7. John A.
  8. Hezikiah (father)
  9. Varnell T.
  10. Bryant
  11. James Manuel
  12. Oliver Carlton
This family was in Hurricane Creek, Lauderdale County, Mississippi, in 1910. Oliver Carlton, the youngest, was born in 1910, so this photo probably dates from about 1913.

This photo of the six older children of Hezekiah Amos Chandler and Elender Paralee Hollis Chandler was apparently taken on the same day and in the same location as the one immediately above.

Back row, from left: James Manuel, Albert, and John A.
