The Chandler Family Association Genealogy Panel - 2010 Cases

The CFA Genealogy Panel considered 72 cases in 2010 and declined one. Some cases were handled without submission to the panelists if a CFALD report could be provided or questions answered by Dick Chandler, GP Chairman, or Claudia Brocato, Secretary. “New” in member column indicates the inquirer joined the CFA about the same time their query was submitted to the GP or as a result of the GP’s efforts. JCDCB refers to “John Chandler Descendant Chart Book.” CFALD refers to the CFA Lineages Database. DNA Group Number in bold indicates an actual DNA testee or close relative of testee. DNA Group Number with a question mark (?) indicates a supposition of genetic group. We have disguised the names of the inquirers and other living persons mentioned below to protect their privacy.

Any conclusions presented here should not be considered the final product of our research. Genealogy is a process and research will always be ongoing. If you would like to know more about any of these cases, please contact

Visit the Chandler Family Association website at chandlerfamilyassociation.org for information about the Genealogy Panel, the Chandler DNA Project, the Genetic Chandler Families, and more. For information on the almost 60 (so far) genetically-distinct Chandler lines visit chandlerfamilyassociation.org/genetic_chandler_families.html.

Some lineages below are abbreviated: JRR is a short version of John b. 1600 > Robert > Robert. The various lines of descent from John Chandler born 1600 can be viewed here: chandlerfamilyassociation.org/members_group7a.html.

Response

Adeline Chandler, descendant of Roger Chandler of Concord, Massachusetts

LV

New

61

Dick has exchanged corres­pondence with inquirer and will utilize her as a Roger of Concord contact.  DNA test results of two males separately claiming descent from Roger of Concord indicate that he was not related to Edmund of Duxbury as some have speculated.

Allen (Allan) Chandler (b. 4-10-1812, d. 1887) who married Temperance Davenport. They lived in The Ware Place, South Carolina (first called Chandler, South Carolina) and ran the Chandler School.

GP research turned up some information on Allen Chandler’s life but nothing was found to indicate his parentage. At our suggestion, inquirer upgraded his DNA test to 67 markers in hope of a pointer to a specific 7A branch.  Based on these results we have recommended a line of further research.

Allin Belton born 1771 who married widow Sarah Chandler 22 Dec 1801 in Horne, Surrey, England

No

 

Response: There were 372 pre-1837 male Chandler marriages in rural Surrey, of which 39 are to a Sarah, but only two fall in the period 1790-1800. Most likely first marriage 1 May 1795 at Dorking St Martin William CHANDLER to Sarah VENN both of that parish.

Asa Chandler (b. 1780, d.1852) of Fayette County, Georgia, believed to be the son of John Chandler (b. 1755 d.1850) and his wife Mary – particularly interested in determining Mary’s maiden name 

DHi

Yes

7A(?)

Reports from CFALD were furnished with information on family and ancestry of Francis Marion Chandler. Lineage:  JRR Joseph > John > John > Asa > William Perry > Frances M > Berry F (no descendants listed for Barry/Berry). Dates for Asa matched CFALD but dates for Asa’s father John did not match CFALD. No maiden name for Mary has yet been found. Family information has been submitted to CFALD. Case still open.

Daniel Chandler born 1 Feb 1765 in Henry, Virginia. He married Margaret Roan in Wingfield, Franklin Virginia. 2 Jan 1797. He died 6 Mar 1844 in Grainger, Tennessee. Looking for father or siblings.

RC

Yes

Reports were provided from CFALD that give the lineage of Daniel Chandler who married Margaret Roan. Also sent family group sheets with details of 12 siblings and 12 children. Offered info on John b. 1610, JRR Joell line, and DNA Project. Lineage: JRR Joell > Joel > Daniel

SGB

Information was provided from CFALD and research. Contact was suggested with a CFA member who is a descendant of William Addison Chandler, Sarah Anne’s uncle. Research suggests Sarah Anne is buried in Hayes County, TX, so further research was suggested for that location. Lineage in CFALD: JRR Joseph > Joseph > James > Lewis > Rev. Pleasant Barnett > Sarah “Sallie” Anne m. 1st Solomon Green O’Bryan, 2nd Dr. David G. Gregory

DNA Group 7A - Searching for birth father. DNA matches 7A, descendants of John Chandler b. 1600. Birth father could have been in the USAF or possibly a civilian contractor or engineer for the USAF and would have spent time in Spain, specifically Madrid, in 1966-67.

JCl

No

We reminded inquirer that we had published a website query in 2007. Query was updated with additional information.

DNA Group 7A –DNA Group 7A -The inquirer is of Korean-American descent, but was born in Japan.  He was subsequently adopted by an American couple of Japanese descent and raised in the U.S.  His DNA matches Chandler Group 7A. Few clues on ancestors except the surname of his birth father (Browning).

 

JS

Yes

7A

DNA test was upgraded to seek close matches. Using this information, CFALD was combed for possible candidates for ancestors of birth father Browning. Thanks to his own research, help from CFA members and other researchers, and reports from CFALD, inquirer was able to find close relatives of his birth father (now deceased) and also found his birth mother, who is living in U.S. Presumed lineage: JRR Robert > William Chandler > William Hampton Chandler > Josiah Chandler b 1808 and Mary Browning > Andrew Jackson Browning b1835 > John Thomas Browning b1859 > Asbury Jackson Browning b1896.

The 1850, 1860 and 1870 censuses record her as Edith born CT, Ida born MA and Edith born MA respectively.  Consequently we searched for both Edith and Ida in CT and MA and followed up unnamed children born in those states around 1812.  While Edith's parents are shown as Charles Chandler and Rebecca Dexter in some public member trees at Ancestry.com, we found no supporting evidence.

We consulted JCDCB and provided complete lineage back to John Chandler b. 1600. Dick wrote inquirer: “There are two theories about the father of the Elizabeth Jane you enquired about.”  One theory says her father is Dan Dial Chandler. In the other theory Lizzie's father is John M. Chandler and the “M” stand for Monroe instead of Madison. “We regret that currently available records are not sufficiently clear for us to be able to determine which theory is correct.”

Harriet (Dery) Kuchnicki is the daughter (possibly by unofficial adoption) of Mildred Dumsch (1892-1953) and her husband Alexander Dery (Derry).

The panelists considered several possible fathers for Kendrick/Kindrick. One possibility is Richard Wilkins Chandler born 1791 in ?VA died 1868 (JRR William > William > Daniel b. 1768 Halifax Co, VA). Another Wilkins is in the 1850 Census of District 14, Cape Girardeau County, Missouri, as a farmer aged 60 born NC. A study of Montgomery County, NC, records revealed that the very first Chandler deed in the county was a purchase of land by Kindrick in 1841. The year of birth for Kendrick was questioned, as some sources indicate 1820.  The panel members found records of Kendrick’s descendants but were unable to come to a conclusion on his ancestry.

No

 

From Dick: “I really want to put you on a good road with your family research, so I am going to express myself bluntly.  You will not get any worthwhile genealogist to take you seriously if all you do is point them to someone else's tree that contains 58,000 people including Julius Caesar born 100 BC and the Emperor Charlemagne born 742 AD but excluding your own grandfather and great grandmother!  * * * *  there is no evidence to connect the Chandlers who came to America from Wilt­shire in England with any le Chaundeler who came from Normandy . . .  There is much for you to be proud of in your Chandler ancestry, without needing to make unproven claims.”

Thomas Jefferson Chandler, born June 6, 1918, in Morgan County, Alabama

There is probably a kinship connection between Thomas Jefferson Chandler and two other Chandlers – George W. and Joseph C. Other families – King and Knighten – were in some of the same places at the same times and may well also be related. It was suggested that inquirer follow up on these clues.
