Attention Curators: Please consider Hon. Thomas Chandler's profile for MP. Thank you. Not sure how to create a link. Sorry.

This method worked great. Ashley Odell come take a look, this fellow is fascinating. I am so honored to curate it.

Very well done. Thank you so much.

! I actually know about him! I wouldn't have remembered his name, but the Historical Society of Windham County (the Vermont one) did a *great* exhibit last year where they featured old prisoner letters, and they featured him as one of the stories. And it's been a while, but I'm pretty sure that when I last visited the county jail museum next door in Newfane (which was the next county seat), they mentioned a deceased prisoner being left in his cell. Now I can put it all together.

And, like everyone else in Windham County (the Vermont one), he's a second cousin: http://www.geni.com/path/Ashley-Odell+is+related+to+Hon-Thomas-Chan...

Next time I'm up when they're open, I'll see if they have anything for the profile. Great little library area. First place I ever found my name in a genealogy book. :)

Oh, this is fun. :) My Cpl. David Towne, an ancestor through Windham County (the Vermont one!), fought under a Capt. John Chandler. This guy's father was a Capt. John Chandler. My relationship to the Chandlers is through the Towns. So I guess I'll have to trawl Fold3 to see if it's a match.

Thank you both so much. I am related (first cousin) to Thomas through my mother and his wife is my aunt six times removed on my fathers side. His story is so sad to me. It amazes me the hardships our ancestors suffered in establishing this country.Thank you both for your interest.
