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.

Clement JORDAN

Clement is my first cousin seven times removed through his grandparents, Dominicus and Hannah (TRISTRAM) JORDAN, my seventh great grandparents.  “By the will of his father, Clement became the owner of Richmond’s Island, where he made his residence and where a number of his children were born. He then removed to his farm on the mainland, just opposite to Richmond’s Island, and here his first wife Elizabeth died. Tradition says of Clement Jordan that he was always looked up to by his neighbors for advice, as a counselor in public trouble, and as a healer of disease. He was nearly always chosen on the committee of safety in the troublesome times with the Indians, and with the mother country previous to the Revolution. As a doctor, he had a widespread practice, treating diseases principally with herbs and roots collected by himself from the earth. His daughter Elizabeth has been heard to say that she with the rest of the children had spent days and weeks collecting them for him. His salves and ointments were made by himself or by his directions, and his patients came from far and near, even from Boston, to have their fever-sores, ulcers and other bad sores cured. As there was no way of traveling in those days, except on horseback or on foot, there were more or less persons stopping at the house the year round for advice and treatment. He was very zealous about attending meeting. His large families of children were always required to go, and having no conveyance, had to go afoot, the distance to church being five miles.”[1]
