In Reply to: Still looking for Edward Roy Chandler,Katherine "Mitchell" Chandler by Glenda Chandler of 65481

" Elisebeth(sic), d, 15, b TX
" Francis, s, 10, b TX
Phipps, Willie, hired man, 51 widow, b TN, TN, TN

1920 census is listed first. By 1930 Dempsey and Permelia no longer listed. Maybe they are buried in Eastland also.

1930 census Eastland Co, TX, 108 N. Dixie, Eastland:

Chandler, Edward R., h, 49, m @ 32 yrs of age, b TX, GA, TX
" Catherine, w, 38, m @ 21 yrs of age, b AL, AL, AL
" Leona, d, 13, b TX
" Edward F., s, 10, b TX
" Rena W., d, 7, b TX
" Roy D., s, 1 1/12, b TX
Webb, John, lodger, 52, b TX, TX, TX

Check out Eastland Co, TX GenWeb site. Under births for 1929 you will find birth of the above Roy D.(Don).

Under books, on that site, click on volunteer lookups. Two volunteers listed, that offer to do several types of lookups.

Check out what else they may have on their site, too.

Here is a "possible" match for family of Dempsey. 1860 census Tuscaloosa Co, AL:

Mitchell, Wm H., 49, b KY - farmer, land 1500/personal 2080
" Nancy, 48, b SC
" Mary, 24, b AL
" Henry E., 22, b AL
" John D.P., 18, b AL
" Jerussa, 16, b AL (female)
" David P.P., 13, b AL
" Ellen A., 11, b AL
" William H., Jr., 9, b AL
" Isaac J., 7, b AL
" Danl D., 5, b AL
" D_____ G., 4, b AL (male)
" Dormelia E.W., 1, b AL
[I could not read given name for 4 yr old male, but it did begin with a "D" and middle initial was clear, too -- "G". This very well could be Dempsey G. Wm (Sr.) has land, I would check land and probate records, see if Dempsey shows up as an heir.]

This could be the same Wm & Nancy 1880 census Hughes, Tuscaloosa Co, AL:

William MITCHELL Self M Male W 70 KY Farmer SC SC
Nancy MITCHELL Wife M Female W 67 AL Keeping House KY SC
Fennia E. MITCHELL Dau S Female W 21 AL At Home KY SC

It would help if they could be found on the 1870 census, but I could not find them. Some pages for the 1870 census are very hard to read, and indexers may have missed them.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
