Zebedee CHANDLER

Zebedee is my third cousin six times removed; we are related through Captain Joseph and Joanna (THOMAS) VAUGHAN.  There are a large number of men with this name and it can be confusing as to which one is which, I believe I have the correct person in all the attached records and dates.  The name is a biblical name meaning “God has given” or “abundant”.  There are variations of the name in records such as Zibida, Zebadee and Zibidee and more.  Due to the confusion with records I cannot verify if he served in the War of 1812, though there was a Zebedee Chandler that served from Massachusetts.  Also due to the name confusion some of the children listed may or may not be his children.  I will put an * next to all those that are possibly his children.  He worked as a peddler in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Zebedee CHANDLER was born 6 April 1785 in Plympton, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[1]  He was the son of Lt. Zebedee and Zerviah (CUSHMAN) CHANDLER.  He died of cholera on 15 July 1849 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[2]  He is interred at Lakenham Cemetery in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[3]  Zebedee married Ruth COLE 28 July 1804 by Rev. John HOWLAND in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts with intentions filed 1 July 1804 in Plympton, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[4]  Ruth was born 9 September 1785 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[5]  She was the daughter of Job and Mary (SAVERY) COLE.   She died 27 August 1834 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[6]  She is interred at Lakenham Cemetery in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[7]

Zebedee and Ruth had the following children:

  1. Job Cole CHANDLER born 22 or 23 December 1804 in Carver or Plympton, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[8] He also has many other dates listed such as 23 December 1803 (death record); 1804 by itself with no location on a Sons of the American Revolutionary War application; 1804 in Carver on Find a Grave and another death record; 13 December 1804 listed in a book.[9]  I believe the December 1804 date to be the correct date.  He died of paralysis on 15 March 1886 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[10]  He is interred at Lakenham Cemetery in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[11]  Job married Nancy Bradford SHERMAN 11 April 1830 in Plympton, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[12]  Nancy was born 23 June 1813 in Plympton, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[13]  She is the daughter of Joseph and Nancy (BRADFORD) SHERMAN.  She died 24 September 1891 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[14]  She is interred at Lakenham Cemetery in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[15]  They had 8 children.
  2. Zebedee CHANDLER* born about 1805.
  3. Mary CHANDLER born 25 April 1806 in Plympton, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[16] She is also listed as born in Easton, Bristol, Massachusetts in one book.[17]  She died 4 August 1872 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[18]  She is interred at Lakenham Cemetery in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[19] Mary married Levi SHURTLEFF 10 November 1825 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts by Nehemiah Cable, Esq.; with intentions filed 1 October 1825 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[20]  The date of 10 November 1824 was also listed in a book.[21]  Levi was born 3 March 1801 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[22]  He was the son of Gideon and Lucy (SHAW) SHURTLEFF.  He died 9 October 1878 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[23]  He is interred at Lakenham Cemetery in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[24]  They had nine children.
  4. Caroline CHANDLER born 13 November 1807 in Plympton, Massachusetts.[25] She died of enlargement of the heart on 15 May 1857 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[26]  Find a Grave has the date of 13 Jun 1857 which I believe is incorrect.[27]  She is interred at Lakenham Cemetery in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[28]  Caroline married Job MORTON 10 March 1832 or June 1832 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[29]  Job was born 9 August 1790 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.  He was the son of Job and Patience (CROOKER) MORTON.  He died 18 June 1849 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.  He is interred at Lakenham Cemetery in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[30]  They had three children.
  5. Zebedee CHANDLER* born about 1809. He married Betsey H. BRIGGS 17 September 1841 in Taunton, Bristol, Massachusetts.[31]  Betsey died 12 May 1845 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[32]  She is interred at Lakenham Cemetery in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[33]  They had one daughter who died as a young child.
  6. Isaac CHANDLER born 21 September 1809 in Plympton, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[34] He died 10 January 1824.[35]
  7. Hannah CHANDLER born 11 September 1811.[36] She died 25 October 1811.[37]
  8. Josiah CHANDLER* 12 September 1812.[38] He died 25 January 1825.[39]
  9. Ruth C. CHANDLER* born 12 September 1814.[40] On her death record and tombstone she is listed as being born in 1819.[41]  She died of valvular heart disease on 2 January 1896 in Barnstable, Barnstable, Massachusetts.[42]  She is interred at West Barnstable Cemetery in West Barnstable, Barnstable, Massachusetts.[43]  Ruth married William F. Jones 20 June 1841 in Middleborough, Plymouth, Massachusetts; with intentions filed 29 May 1841 in Middleborough, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[44]  William was born about 1819.[45]  He was the son of Benjamin and Betsey (CROCKER) JONES.  He died about 1915.  He is interred at West Barnstable Cemetery in West Barnstable, Barnstable, Massachusetts.[46]  They had one daughter.
  10. Benjamin P.T. CHANDLER* born 3 October 1816.[47] He died 29 April 1818.[48]
  11. Mercy Savery CHANDLER* 19 October 1818 in Massachusetts.[49] She has other dates listed in other sources such as 16 October 1818 and 1819.[50]  She died of consumption on 12 January 1853 in Stoughton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[51]  In one book she is listed as dying 9 January 1853.[52]  Mercy married Samuel T. RIDGWAY Jr., 6 November 1836 in Stoughton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[53]  Samuel was born 12 November 1813 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.  He was the son of Jared and Mehitable (GARDNER) REED.  He died 9 April 1896 in Stoughton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.  They had two children.
  12. Albert F. CHANDLER born 1821 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[54] He died of heart disease and chronic hepatitis on 29 March 1886 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[55]  He is interred at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts.[56]  Albert married twice; he married first to Sarah W. TOLMAN.[57]  Sarah died 10 May 1851 in Massachusetts.  She is interred at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts.[58]  They had two children.  Albert married second to Martha B. FULLER 5 November 1857 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[59]  She was the daughter of Thomas and Sarah FULLER.  She died of acute exacerbation of chronic nephritis on 30 August 1907 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[60]  She is interred at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts.[61]  I cannot find any children of this marriage.
  13. Sarah B. CHANDLER* born 21 December 1825 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[62] She died 25 March 1858 in Watertown, Middlesex, Massachusetts.[63]  Sarah married Miles Barrows PRATT 12 January 1852 in Barnstable, Barnstable, Massachusetts by W. G. Sargant.[64]  Other dates and locations are 1851 in Massachusetts; 25 December 1851 in Worcester, Massachusetts.[65]  Miles was born 17 September 1825 in Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[66]  Miles is the son of David and Sarah (BARROWS) PRATT.  He died 9 August 1882 in Watertown, Middlesex, Massachusetts.[67] They had no children.

 

The above Zebedee (#2) and Zebedee (#5) are mentioned in various records as his son, there was another Zebedee CHANDLER with a wife Ruth living in another part of Massachusetts at the same time period, so they me connected to that Zebedee.  Other noted children, may or may not belong to this other Zebedee, though they often referred to the wife as Ruth COLE, so there is no guarantee as to whom they belong.  I do believe that all the Zebedee’s living in the Plymouth County at this time period are related in some manner.

Rizpah BRYANT

Rizpah was also known as Rispah, Arispey, Ariffy or Arisba.  This name fascinates me, it is a rare Hebrew name and almost all that have this name are related in some way.  She is my second cousin seven times removed; we are related through Capt. Joseph and Joanna (Thomas) Vaughan.  He filed for a Widow’s Pension in 1843 for her husband Eleazer’s service in the Revolutionary War in 1775, 1778 and 1778.[1]

George LOWELL

George is my seventh great granduncle; we are related through his parents Joseph and Mary (HARDY) LOWELL.  He was an inn-holder in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[1]

George LOWELL was born 28 March 1712 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[2]  There are various publications that state other dates such as 23 March 1712 and 2 January 1715, but I believe these to be untrue as I can find no official documents stating these dates.[3]  He died before 26 April 1763 in Newbury, Essex Massachusetts or Saco, York, Maine.[4]George married Elizabeth MORSS 29 June 1732, with intentions filed 22 April 1732.[5]  Elizabeth was born 2 April 1714 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[6]  She was the daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth (MARCH) MORSE.  She married second to Joseph PARKER 9 August 1762 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[7]

George and Elizabeth had the following children:

  1. George LOWELL born 12 June 1734 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[8]
  2. Daughter LOWELL born January 1736 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[9]
  3. Samuel LOWELL born 17 February 1738 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[10] He died 23 February 1784 in Saco, York, Maine.[11]  Samuel married twice; first to Susan Ellen/Eleonore PHILBROOK about 1763 in Greenland, Rockingham, New Hampshire.[12]  He married second Charity BERRY 16 May 1771 in Saco, York, Maine with intentions filed 13 April 1771 in Saco, York, Maine.[13]  Samuel served in the Revolutionary War in Capt. John Elder’s Co., Col. Lemuel Robinson’s Regt.[14]
  4. Elizabeth LOWELL born 21 June 1741 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[15] She died 19 September 1772 in Newbury, Orange, Vermont.[16]  She is interred at Oxbow Cemetery in Newbury, Orange, Vermont.[17]  Elizabeth married Col. Thomas JOHNSON 12 February in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts or Newbury, Orange, Massachusetts; there are records stating both locations.[18]  Thomas was in command of a unit at the Battle of Ticonderoga in the Revolutionary War, he was also captured and taken to Canada and later released.[19]
  5. Sarah LOWELL born 4 April 1745 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[20]

Joseph C. CALEF

Joseph is my first cousin seven times removed through Dominicus and Hannah (TRISTRAM) JORDAN.

Joseph C. CALEF was born 4 November 1724 and/or baptized 8 November 1724 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[1]   His parents were Joseph C. and Hannah (JORDAN) CALEF.  He died 31 May 1776 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[2]  He is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[3]  Joseph married Mehitable C. MILLER 12 September 1758 in Boston, Suffolk, Maine also listed as intention 21 September 1758 in Boston, Suffolk, Maine, which I believe was a typographical error.[4]  Mehitable was born 27 April 1735 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts other dates listed for her are 3 and 4 May 1735, I believe one of the May dates may be her baptism date.[5]  She was the daughter of Col. Samuel and Rebecca (MINOT) MILLER.  She died 13 April 1790 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts there is also recorded date 30 September 1790 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[6]  She is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[7]

Joseph and Mehitable had the following children;

  1. Joseph CALEF born 12 December 1758 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[8]  He died 29 March 1797 in Scarborough, Cumberland, Maine.[9]  He was a yeoman.[10]  He served in the Revolutionary War for twelve days guarding the shores of Maine in Capt. Jonah Voses’s Co. 1776.[11]  Joseph married Abigail MARR 29 March 1797 in Scarborough, Cumberland, Maine.[12]  Abigail is my second cousin seven times removed; we are related through Roger and Mary (CROSS) HILL.  Joseph and Abigail are not related by blood.
  2. Samuel CALEF born 12 December 1758 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[13] He died unmarried in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Maine.[14]  He served in the Revolutionary War for twelve days guarding the shores of Maine in Capt. Jonah Voses’s Co. 1776.[15]
  3. Ebenezer Winter CALEF born 17 August 1760 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[16] He died 9 February 1829.[17]  He was a merchant in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[18]  Ebenezer married Sarah GIBSON 1 February 1800 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[19]
  4. Hannah CALEF born 1 March 1763 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[20] She died 1855 in Brooklyn, Kings, New York.  She is interred in Braintree, Norfolk, Massachusetts.  Hannah married Samuel Miller THAYER 24 July 1793 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[21]
  5. Mehitable Miller CALEF was born 1 September 1765 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[22] According to her death record she was born 30 September 1765 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[23]  She died in 26 October 1844 or November 1844 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[24]  Mehitable married Col. Thomas LEGETT.[25]  They had no children.
  6. Stephen Miller CALEF was born 9 September 1767 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[26] He died after 1820.[27]  Stephen married Rebecca 7 December 1807 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Maine by George E. Vaughan, justice of the peace; intentions filed 26 November 1807 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Maine.[28]
  7. Robert Jordan CALEF was born 9 May 1770 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[29] He died 22 March 1776 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[30]  He is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[31]
  8. Rebecca Thayer CALEF was born 17 September 1772 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts; although there are three dates listed as her birth date, 17 September 1772, 27 May 1772 and 17 September 1762, I believe that the 17 September 1772 date is the correct date since her birth records are showing that date the other dates are from other records recorded at a later time.[32] She died of dropsy 4 October 1858 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[33]  She is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[34]  Rebecca married Joseph Neals HOWE, they had no children.[35]
  9. John CALF was born 27 May 1776 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts; as with other children in the family there are numerous birth dates listed for him; 1767, 9 May 1776 and 27 May 1776, I believe the 27 May date to be correct since that is the date of both birth records on file.[36] He died 30 March 1777 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[37]  He is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[38]
