I have been collecting info on the Chandler side for so long that I have notes all over my room. I will have to dig around to find the exact census records but I can tell you that my James Andrew Brooks is to old to be your Williams brother. James Andrew Brooks may be an uncle. He was born in Hillsboro, NC 8-26-1794 and he married Dicy Wilson there or in TN. I have met many cousins on this line through the years. Some one has told me that their first son Wilson H. was born in NC 12-7-1815, he married Susan and their sons were James and Robert. Second child was James Andrew (Jr) born 11-3-1818 in Fayetville, TN. 3rd child was Elizabeth Cason b. 7-20-1820 in TN. and wed John N. Green 12-1-1852 in Lauderdale Co., AL, 4th child was Polly H. born 3-11-1822 (don't know where), William born 4-5-1824 (don't know where), Samuel King born 1-15-1826 (birthplace unknown), Frances Ann born 1830 (birthplace unknown) and Mary Ann born 10-18-1830 in Lauderdale Co., AL, she wed Abel C. Stafford 3-4-1847 in Lauderdale Co., AL.
I have seen many peoples work online but I don't copy it all because I want documentation like census records to back it all up. I am tracking both of my parents ancestors and both of my husbands parents lines. I have no idea how many families I am working on. It is very addictive. I haven't had as much time to spend on my family lately because I have been volunteering a lot. I have been fortunate to have been able to trace my own family back to the 1700's on some sides. I figure it's my turn to help others out. I have been enumerating cemeteries for Kaufman Counties web page since I was laid off. I am about to do number 6.
Did I tell you there are pictures that I turned into the Lauderdale Co., AL page? Of my Chandler ancestors. One is of Hannah Dicey Stafford Chandler (her mother was Mary Ann Brooks). Just go to http://www.rootsweb.com/~allauder/pictures.htm
and click on the pictures you want to see (Chandlers). They were a raggedy looking bunch (lol).
Thank you for the link to that web page on the Calahans and Chandlers. I appreciate it. Sorry I didn't recognize those names you gave me. I bet we are kin somewhere down the line. Keep in touch. My main email is Jleolvr@aol.com
