3.1.1 Genealogy Websites / Personal Recollections

One readily accessible source of genealogy information (and misinformation) are the postings made by genealogists and amateure enthusiasts on various genealogy websites. This information is a mixture of carefully researched summaries, questions, and speculations. Much of the information is incorrect or inaccurate, but genealogy websites are a great source for hunches and insights. Usely (Robertson) Chandler

Father of James Bailey Chandler who relocated to Brown County prior to 1850. James Bailey Chandler

The 1850 Monroe County, Indiana, census for Washington Township also lists a James B. Chandler, age 31, so perhaps born in 1819 (1815 if estimated from the reported age at his marriage) in Washington, Daviess County, Indiana. James married Hannah Woods on 07 Jun 1840 in Brown County, Indiana. Hannah was born in 1822 (based on age 28 in the 1850 census) or 1815 (based on the age at her marriage) in Kentucky. The 1850 census reports five children: William (1842), Nancy (1843), Eliza Ann (1847), Alexander (1845), and Johnson (1848). There are land records for James B. Chandler (and JB Chandler) in The History of Brown County. James B. Chandler appears to be the son of James Chandler of Daviess, County, Indiana:

Nathan Chandler is of interest because only he appears in the 1850 Census for Daviess County Indiana

Sarah Hinkle Chandler was previously married to a John Huber-Hoover and also had five children by that marriange. See

Whitfield Ballard Chandler, Nathan's oldest son. Nelson Chandler

The 1850 census shows a Nelson Chandler household in Brown County, Indiana. Nelson was born about 1828 in Indiana and married Mary Polly Allen. Polly (as she called in the 1850 census) as born September 15, 1827, in Tennessee. They were married on December 26, 1844 in Ripley County, Missouri. Nelson is listed as a farmer in the 1850 census. Polly died September 15, 1894, in Oregon County, Missouri. Children:

Shadrach Chandler of Whitley County, KY. This is not our Shadrach.®ion=11®ionfriendly=North+America&frompage=99

Shadrick Chandler of Whitley County, KY. The above Shadrack is probably one of the children of Shaderick Chandler in the 1810 Knox County, Kentucky, census. This senior Shaderick would be the person on interest. He is the Shadrach who married to Martha Elizabeth Pennington sometime well after 1809 when she was born.

Martha Elizabeth Pennington

Shadrach Chandler referenced in Land sale in Whitley County, KY, in 1853.

See marriage of daughter Susanna Chandler to William Monhollen, Jr.

See deaths of the family of William Monhollen Jr.

Could this be the same Shadrick Chandler that owned land in Randolph County Indiana, in 1837? No... there is no indication that this Shadrach Chandler ever lived in Indiana.

Shadrick Chandler, Revolutionary War Veteran in Knox County, Kentucky This is probably Shadrack Chandler of Knox/Franklin county. Note that he is not listed with the veterans from Virgina.
