  1. Thomas Beazley and Hannah Goins

    Paulina "Jane" Chandler is mentioned in the Will of Thomas Beasley (Beazley) as the daughter of Mary Chandler. "Chandler" may be the desease name of Mary's husband?? It is unsure how Mary Chandler is connected to Thomas Beasley.

    The deed between Henry Durham and wife Jane (Chandler) of the first part and Thomas M. Clark of the second part, made on May 5th, 1843 in Patrick County, VA, states that Jane Chandler was the recepient of land handed down to her by the Will of Thomas Beasley, through her mother Mary Chandler.

  2. Hannah Beasley, daughter of Thomas Beasley, Sr. and Hannah Going, married Seaton Chandler, 28 Dec., 1830 in Patrick County, Virginia. Seaton Chandler and Hannah Beasley's children were; John, Mary, Lucinda, Priscilla and Judith. Listed in 1850 census of Patrick County, Virginia. Maybe this will help.?

    ReplyDelete
  3. (Paulina) Jane, Priscilla, Lucinda, and Judith are all children of "Mary Chandler" according to the Will of Thomas Beasley. They are not children of Hannah (Beasley), who married Seaton Chandler.

  5. Byron,
    You are positively correct and I made a mistake from memory and not looking back on the facts.
    The 1850 census of Patrick County, VA does NOT name any of the girls.
    Seaton Chandler, 44, b. VA
    Hannah Chandler, 40 b. VA.
    John Chandler, 18, b. VA

    Embersetta Harris b. abt 1822 is my great,great grandmother. Her parents were Robert Harris b. abt. 1796 and Nancy Harris b. abt 1798 both from Virginia. As rare as Embersetta's name is I have to believe the will of Nancy Gowin, refers to her.

  11. I am VERY interested in the Chandler family that intermarried with the Goins/Goings family.
    I am a Chandler with the following oral history: - our people come up of Virginia, - we are Indian/we have always been here.
    I found our earliest Chandler in Sussex County, Delaware in 1804 - Augustus/Custis Chandler. In 1810 he was listed as Negro Chandler, his family as free persons of color.
    Does anyone have an idea of who these Chandlers were that married into the Goins?
    Thank you
