A large circle of friends and relatives attended the funeral of Dr. Chandler in Warsaw, Indiana in the middle of a hot July in 1901 (died 19 July 1910). As far as this research can tell, Chandler was not in Montgomery County long. Born October 4, 1830 in Ohio to Robert and Hannah Chandler, he left from Peru, Indiana just as the Civil War was winding down (April 18, 1865) but did not return from Dover, Delaware until the 4th of August that year, so his work must have been very important as the Assistant Surgeon of the 155th Regiment of the Indiana Infantry. His rank was Lt. He married (10 March 1857) Ann Sophia Runyan (1832-1891) and they had one daughter, Mary who died at age three. They also had two sons, Orin Jackson and John Lemon Chandler. He and Ann are buried in Oakwood Cemetery in Warsaw, Indiana.
Note: He was assistnat surgeon during the CiviL War 155th Indiana Infantry - mustered out on 8-4-1865 at Cover, Delaware. He lived in Peru, Indiana prior to going in to the service. He and his wife, are buried in Oakwood Cemetery, Warsaw (Kosciusko County) Indiana.
