In Reply to: Chander's or Ribble by Sue Ribble of 71

Here is part of a family history from "Throckmorton Co. History".
Jimmy was born on December 6, 1924 and is the youngest of five children born to E.T. and Jessie Gresham Chandler who lived in the Elbert community. Ed was born in Chandler Springs, Alabama on August 24, 1867 and was an early settler of the Fort Belknap area. He spent time in Indian Territory before moving to Elbert in about 1900 and building a gin. Jessie Gresham was born in Aquilla, Bosque County, on September 1, 1887 but moved with her parents to the southern part of Throckmorton County at an early age. She and Ed were married on July 14, 1910. Jimmy's paternal grandparents were Albert and Annie Scott Chandler and his maternal grandparents were Horatio and Susan Hammel Gresham.

I do not find the name Ribble listed in this book. Mr. Ed and family lived and farmed about 4 miles SW of Elbert, had a nice peach orchard. Jimmy and Don, his sons, served in WW II. They both married and stayed in Throckmorton Co.
