JOSEPH 5 CHANDLER {Joseph* Thomas* William*
William 1 ) and Elizabeth Cook, Atkinson, N. II.

He was brought up at the house of his uncle, Rev. James 4
Chandler, at Rowley, Mass. He had, when young, a great
desire to go to sea. and become master of* a ship. He went to
the West Indies after he was 14 years old, and at last sailed us
third mate ; but his uncle persuaded him to leave sea life. He
then went to live with and learn the trade of a tanner, of Capt.
Joseph Burroughs, at Newburyport, whose son (George Bur-
roughs) married his aunt Hannah Chandler.

He taught school, having received a better education than
most young men of his day. He commenced tunning on the
East road in Atkinson, and afterwards bought the Moses Poor
place, by the stream in the north-west part of the town. He
erected a sawmill just east of his house. When the Revolu-
tionary war broke out, he volunteered as a substitute for a
neighbor, and went to Cambridge, Mass. On his return home
he was soon drafted into the army, and served in Capt. Jesse
Page's company. He was at Saratoga, Stillwater, and at the
taking of Gen. Burgoyne. He drew a pension of ninety-six
dollars a year until his 91st year. He died 8 Jan. 1834, a. 90
years, 7 mos. in Atkinson.

readily understand when any of her family speak to her
slowly, by seeing the motion of their lips while uttering the
souuds. She continued to reside with her brother Joseph.

• MARY 5 CHANDLER (John, 4 Ttiomas, 3 William , 2 William 1 )
and William 3 White, Boston.

He was 1>. in Haverhill, Mass., 1 Aug. 1 754 ; was the son of
John 2 White, who in. first, Miriam (Hoyt) Hazen, and m. sec-
ond, Eliza llaynes ; and grandson of Dea. William 1 White, of
Haverhill, by his wife Sarah Phillips ; and the sixth in descent
from William White, the emigrant.

He was a merchant in Boston, and afterwards resided at Rut-
land, Mass.

Mrs. Alary White departed this life Feb. 21, 1794, greatly
lamented, leaving a disconsolate husband and five children to
mourn their loss.

The children of Mary and William White were :

i. William 4 Charles White, b. 17 April, 1777. Lincoln's His-
tory of Worcester describes him as iL A player, poet, advocate
and author, possessing versatility of talents which gave him
some distinction in each of his various occupations.
" His father, William White, of Boston, extensively engaged in
commerce and trade, destined his eldest son to mercantile pursuits.
His education for business was commenced as clerk of Mr. Joseph
Cooledge. and diligently followed for a few years. At length a vo-
cation more congenial to the taste of the young man seduced him
from the employments of the counting-house, and the journal and
ledger gave place to books of light literature. In 1700, at the age of
nineteen, he had written 'Orlando,' a tragedy, subsequently printed
with the head of the author. The father, a formal and correct per-
son, devoted to practical matters, seems to have contemplated the in-
tellectual acquisitions of his son with little satisfaction.

' A son his father's spirit doomed to cross,
By penning stanzas while he should engross. '

His mortification was extreme on finding the attachments of young
White for the drama growing into a passion too strong to be con-
trolled by reason ; and when excited by opposition, becoming so in-
tense as to affect his sanity of mind and health of body.

" In the winter of 1796, the elder White writes : • William had, for
some time, discovered his propensity for theatric exhibitions ; and by
all opportunities I discountenanced in him this inordinate passion ;
when I came away from Boston he opened himself in a very dutiful
and respectful manner, by observing that his illness arose from his



FIFTH AND SIXTH GENERATIONS. 215

insatiable thirst for the stage, but that his resolution had gained the
ascendancy of his desires ; and he entreated me not to have the least
uneasiness respecting him in that particular, for he hail determined
not to give way to that inclination.' However sincere was the prom-
ise, it was soon broken. Unable to resist his dramatic love, he made
Int. first appearance at the Federal Street Theatre, Dec. 14, 1796, in
the character of Nerval, in the tragedy of Douglas, and was received
with great applause by an audience of indulgent friends. In a letter
of apology written the next day to his father, he says : k I am sorry I
was compelled, by violence of inclination, to deviate from my prom-
ise to you ; but life was one series of vexation, disappointment and
wretchedness. Pray let this consideration have some weight with
you. But, for Heaven's sake, for your own sake, and for my sake,
do not tear me from a profession which, if i am deprived of, will be
attended with fatal consequences.' Never did parent mourn more in-
consolably for the worst follies or darkest crimes of his offspring,
than did the father of the actor over this example of perversity in his
family. He thus addresses the tragedian: -Dear William! for so I
will still call you : my beloved son ! Stain not the memory of your
amiable and tender mother by your folly ; break not the heart of
your father ; but rouse yourself from this seeming state of insanity ;
your youth will excuse you for once. But for God's sake, and every-
thing you hold dear, 1 pray you to refrain and fie not again seeu upou
a common stage.' The temporary success of the aspirant for theatric
fame alleviated the sufferings of the distressed parent, and he reluct-
antly yielded to the advice of friends and consented that Charles
might occasionally tread the boards, but only in the elevated walks
of tragedy. ' Let me enjoin it upon you.' he writes, ' never to appeal'
no, not for once, in any comic act, where the nimble tricks of a
monkey are better fitted to excite laughter, and where dancing, sing-
ing and kissing may be thought amusement for a dollar,. No, Wil-
liam, 1 had, much as I love you, rather follow you to the grave, than
to see you, and myself, and my family, so disgraced.'

" Mr. White appeared as Orlando, in his own tragedy, Dec. 20 ;
Tancred, in Thompson's Tauered and Sigismunda, Jan. 2, 171)7; Ro-
meo, Fell. G, and Octavian, in the Mountaineers, April 7. on the Bos-
ton stage. The ebb of popular favor effected what parental admoni-
tion had entirely failed to accomplish. The applause which followed
his first efforts grew fainter ; the fit of romantic enthusiasm exhausted
itself ; and the earliest exertion of reflection resulted in the determi-
nation to adopt the profession of the law. In July, 171)7, he entered
the office of Levi Lincoln, Sr., in Worcester, as student. In July,
1800, he removed to Providence, where he completed his professional
noviciate under the instruction of Judge Howell. When admitted to
practice in Rhode Island in September following, a partnership was
proposed by that gentleman on terms which were declined. Mr.
White opened an otiice in Providence, but did not obtain employment
or fees.

" The want of business led directly to the want of money. The
pressure of pecuniary embarrassment drove him again to the stage in
New r York. ' On the 19th of January, 1801," says Dunlap, in his
History of the American Theatre, • Mr. White, a young man from
Worcester, Mass., was brought out with some promise of success in



21(5 THE CHANDLER FAMILY.

young Nerval. Curiosity was excited, and a house of S614 obtained.
He had performed in Boston, when quite a boy, with that applause so

freely, and often so injudiciously, bestowed on such efforts ; had
since studied law, and was at this time a tall handsome youth ; but
not destined by nature to shine. He attempted Romeo, and gave
hopes of improvement, but much improvement was wanting to consti-
tute him an artist.' 'He played Alonzo ; Aimwell ; Theodore; El-
virus and Altamont. In the play of the Abbe de 1'Epee, he failed
altogether in the part of St. Alme, was hissed, and withdrawn by his
own consent, as it was announced to the public, on • finding the charac-
ter too difficult.' A visit to Richmond, Va., where he played a few
nights, was crowned with such success that he contemplated devoting
his life to the theatre. The reverse of fortune in some of his efforts
again cured the dramatic mania. In the summer of 1801 he returned
to the bar, and established himself in Rutland, in Worcester Co.,
Mass., where some of his relatives then resided, and where his father,
who had been unfortunate in business, soon after removed. He was
married to Tamer Smith, daughter of a respectable farmer of that
town. In 180L> he contracted to compile l A Compendium of the
Laws of Massachusetts,' which was printed soon after — a work' use-
ful at the day of its publication. On the resignation of Judge Bangs
in 1 Q 11, he v. as appointed County Attorney, which office he retained
till his death. He established himself in Grafton in 1812; the next
year he resided in Worcester. In 1814 he removed to Sutton, where
he married Aug. 13, 1815, Susan Johonnot, daughter of Dr. Stephen
Monroe. He returned to AVorcester in 18 1G, and died May 2, 1818,
of dropsy.

" Through his whole career the suppressed love of the drama was
working on his mind. The Clergyman's Daughter, a play founded on
McKenzie's 'Man of the World,' was first presented on the Boston
stage, Jan. 1, 1810, and obtained remarkable success. In December
of that year he produced the Poor Lodger, a comedy adopting the in-
cidents of Miss Burney's novel of Evelina. Mr. White was a frequent
correspondent of the 'National iEgis,' while that paper was under the
direction of the late Francis Blake, and afterwards became its editor.
lit 1813 he published a pamphlet in vindication against the charge of
apostacy from democratic principles. His odes and poetical produc-
tions obtained some celebrity. His -1th of July address at Worcester
iu 1804. was printed.

" Mr. White possessed that high grade of talent which is called
genius. In his addresses at the bar there were passages of splendid
eloquence ; but they were unequal ; although parts were strong, they
were not connected with logical method and clearness. His taste was
refined and correct. Greater constancy and perseverance might have
raised him to a high rank in any of the departments of forensic exer-
tion, literary effort or dramatic exhibition."

He died 2 May, 1818. of dropsy, aged 41. His second wife died
about 1864. Three children.
