Hello Tim

Your great grandfather Norman Sinclair CHANDLER 1859-1950 was the son of William C CHANDLER who was born 29 Aug 1837 in Fox Point, Lunenburg Co., NS and died there on 14 October 1921. He was buried in Hubbards Baptist Cemetery. William married Caroline COVEY 1840-1915 in St Luke's Anglican Church, Hubbards. As well as Norman, they had Emoline in 1858.
William was the son of James John CHANDLER born 1791 who married Margaret Elizabeth COULIN/COOLEN in 1823. They had 13 other children, in addition to William C.
All this, and a great deal more, is covered in the excellent book "The Chandler and Chandley Families of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick" by Margaret Tuttle, John Wilson and Jack Chandler, which you can obtain on inter-library loan through your local lending library. It is a very good read.

Best wishes

Dick Chandler in Salmon Arm, British Columbia, Canada
