Robert L. Chandler family
The photograph at right of the Robert L. and Julia A. E. Lambert Chandler family can be dated to about 1900, since Robert B. Chandler, the boy at left in front, was born in 1893. (See below a photograph of Robert B. Chandler as an adult.)

Robert and Julia were born in Carroll County, Georgia, and raised their family in Cleburne County, Alabama. Members of the family are:

Front row: Robert B., John G., and Charles W.

Middle row: Martha F., Robert L., Zelma, and Julia.

Back row: Lula L. and Josephine A.


Robert B. Chandler
The photo at left is Robert B. Chandler (1893-1918), a son of Robert L. and Julia A. E. Lambert Chandler.

Robert L. Chandlers's parents were Hiram Bennett Chandler and Frances Marion Holloway. Richard Chandler born 1751 is considered the earliest known ancestor for Group 3. Robert L. Chandler's line of descent is: Richard Chandler b 1751 VA? > Richard Chandler b 1775 VA > Ambrose Chandler b 1805 NC > Hiram Bennett Chandler b 1831 GA.

James L. Chandler Family - Newly Found Photos
Linda Yates hit a treasure trove when she located a previously unknown Chandler cousin, the first Chandler relative she has ever met except for her own father. These photos were furnished by the new cousin. Maybe you can help put some of them in context for Linda.

Submitted by Linda Yates

June 27, 2010

This is purportedly a photograph of James L. Chandler, Linda's g-g-grandfather, and his wife.

From Linda: James L Chandler and his wife Oictoria (or maybe Victoria) Hatfield were both from Georgia. They had a son, William David Chandler, born September 9, 1877, Carrollton, Georgia.


This photo is identified as Julia Chandler and possibly William Chandler.

From Linda: William David Chandler, son of James L. and Oictoria/Victoria Hatfield Chandler, was born September 9, 1877, Carrolton, Georgia., and died June 11, 1923, in Barberton Ohio. William David Chandler married Julia Walker, who was born June 13, 1878, in Carrolton, Georgia, and died April 18, 1933, in Barberton Ohio. Their children were Mamie, born 1903 Alabama and died in her 20s in Ohio; James, born 1904 Georgia; Cramer Beuford (Linda's grandfather), born 1907 Alabama; and Nellie, born 1911 Alabama and died at age 16.

At far left is Linda's grandfather, Cramer Beuford Chandler, as a young man. Cramer, much later in life, is shown with his wife, Sophia (nee Opalewski) Chandler, at left.

From Linda: Cramer and Sophia both died in Arizona. Cramer's brother James married Hazel Mess from Akron Ohio, they also died in Arizona. Cramer's sister Nellie died in Georgia.


Mamie Chandler, at left, was the daughter of William David and Julia Chandler. She was born 1903 Alabama and died in her 20s in Ohio. Katherine Kennedy Mastro, shown above in a 1935 photo, is Mamie's daughter.

Back row, from left: Thelma Eukalee Chandler Passmore, Mary Lorene Chandler Damren, Minnie Frances Chandler, Nellie Elizabeth Stringer. Middle row (adults): Thomas Louis Passmore, William Solomon Chandler, Stella Chandler Stringer, Joseph Damren, Pauline (Crozier) Chandler, Richard Alvin Chandler. Front row (adults): Benjamin Franklin Chandler, Ruby Dukes Chandler, Martha Ezell Chandler Matthews. None of the children were identified.

The photo of the William Solomon Chandler family at right was taken in October or November of 1939, possibly in Tifton, Georgia. Solomon was born May 13, 1875, in Carroll County, Georgia, and died May 6, 1940. He married Sarah Ann Elizabeth Serene Susan "Sallie" McGee (1880-1929).

The photograph at left of the daughters of William Solomon Chandler is believed to have been taken sometime in the 1950's in Miami, Florida. Seated:  Ezelle Chandler Mixon. Standing, from left:  Stella Chandler Stringer, Mary Chandler Ellis, Minnie Chandler Watson, Thelma Chandler Kilcoyne. Ezelle was first married to a Mr. Matthews and second to a Mr. Corbin, Mary was first married to a Mr. Damren, and Thelma was previously married to a Mr. Passmore.


William Solomon Chandler is the son of Hiram Bennett Chandler (born 5 May 1831 in Franklin County, Georgia; died 11 March 1900) and his wife Frances M. Holloway (born 11 March 1836, Campbell County, Georgia). He is the grandson of Ambrose Chandler (born 1805, North Carolina; died 9 April 1868, Carroll County, Georgia) and Jerusha White (born 1805, Georgia; died 1894, Haralson County, Georgia).

These photos were submitted by CFA members Charles "Chuck" and Vicki Chandler Watson, a married couple who are both Chandler descendants. Vicki is a descendant of William Chandler of Bishop’s Stortford in Hertfordshire, England (DNA Group 9). Chuck, a member of DNA Group 3, is a grandson of William Solomon Chandler and the son of Minnie Frances Chandler Watson (April 15, 1923 - December 15, 2006, photo at right).
