Melanie,

Most likely the connection would have been in Ohio. I now live in the South of the U.S.A. and not much in the means of research are available here.

Not being able to find a Chandler, I am trying Candler. Someone from Virginia told me he knew of no connection on their list from a John Chandler to my Woolley family.

I don't know from whom he would have been decended but it may not have been a direct line or that of a grandmother's maiden name.

My Smith and Dorsey line would be in Ohio also, but I know the Dorsey side came from Massachusettes or Maryland. Dorsey was one of the First Families of America, so they haven't been as difficult to trace.

I know I have an Abbott connection too, but have yet to find that, but did find many Abbott and Chandler connections. The Woolley name is spelled so many different ways and from so many countries, I am not sure from where mine originate. I was thinking Irish, but now I don't know. I know some of my family were Irish and Scottish early years. Now I call myself "All American" with all the Nationalities. As if we didn't have enough, one of my relatives married a Greek. We tease we could start our own United Nations. Yeah French, Dutch, German and English too.

I don't know whether to look North or South for family. I found a Smith and Woolley company in Canada, but no one by that name is there any longer and NO ONE seems to know how they got the name. That I find difficult to believe, but they tried for me.
