Daniel B. Chandler
The Vermont Journal, December 21, 1928
The funeral services of Daniel B. Chandler were held in the audience room of the Chester Baptist church, Saturday afternoon, Dec. 15.
Mr. Chandler, familiarly known for nearly 30 years as Deacon Chandler, was born in Chester, May 14, 1844, son of Willard and Betsy (Hoar) Chandler. He died Dec. 12, age 84 years and seven months. His life has been spent in Chester, most of it on one of the hillside farms. Recent years, he enjoyed a home in the village on Main street. Few of our citizens have been better known; none more highly respected than he. For 61 years he was a member of the Baptist church, a lover of its services, an active participant in all its activities, the friendliest of neighbors, a citizen much beloved.
In 1865 he enlisted in Company F, 11th Regiment Vermont Volunteers, and served till the end of the Civil War. He was one who witnessed the arrival of General Phil Sheridan to the battle front in season to prevent disaster.
He was a charter member of Henry Post No. 27, Grand Army of the Republic, and for some time has been one of the two surviving members of that Post.
He is survived by one son and two grandchildren, Herbert Chandler of Keene, N. H., and his twin daughters, and one niece, Mrs. Eugene Putnam of Gassets.
