Abby (Abbie) Frances Chandler

Carte de visite backmark: W. H. Lane, 4 How St. Haverhill, Mass. Per Sarah Elizabeth Heald. (Mother of Abby Frances Chandler)

I married Abner Woodman Chandler, in Hampstead, Nov. 12, 1840. He was born April 6, 1815, in Atkinson, N.H., a son of Joseph and Polly (Woodman) Chandler, I bought the farm of Dea. Jonathan Kent in 1849 and moved there (now known as the Charles Damon place in Hampstead). The place is historic in interest, because of the Kent ancestors of Revolutionary times. I united with the Congregational church in Hampstead by letter from the Lowell church, May, 1877, and am a present member there. I was always connected with the musical work of the church until we moved to Haverhill, in 1889.
