rison-house of his grandfather. Opt. Ebenezer 3 Eastman,

and in later years was conversant with all political and public
matters by reading the newspapers. At the age of fifteen he
drove two cows and two shotes from Concord, N. II., to Con-
way, alone, going by way of Saco. Near a solitary cabin in
the woods, about halfway, where he was to stop, he met a bear

ance, marched oil". He lodged in the cabin alone at night, and

of the Parish. This Zachariah Chandler was uncle of his first
wife. [See 85.1

Mrs. Elizabeth (Parsons) Chandler was a woman of a "•quick
and impulsive " temperament. " with great strength and
tenacity " of mental purpose. She assisted her first husband
as long as he lived in his school, and after his death continued
it. She and her five sisters were "women of superior
excellence, of line social qualities, cultivated minds, and
eminently religious."

The following, on the monument to her first husband, in the
cemetery at Newbury (old town) was from her pen : —

Sacred to the Memory of

Mr. Samuel Chandler

who departed this life

May 25, 1786

^Etat 32.

Here struggles rest, escaped this mortal strife.
Above the joys, beyond the woes of life.
No rnore sweet patience, feigning < ft relief.
Lights thy sick eye to cheer a partner's irrief.
With tender art to sate her anxious groan,
No more thy bosom presses down its own
Now long-sought peace is thine aud bliss sincere ;
Ours be the lenient, not nnpleasinir tear.
Blest be the bark that wafts us to the shore
Where death-divided f riends shall part no more :
To join thee there, here with thy dust; repose,
Is all the hope thy hapless widow knows.

After many years of grief and usefulness, she m. 23 Nov.
1804, John Mycall, then of Harvard, Mass., where (said the
"Salem Register" of April 16, 1804) his wife Hannah had died.

John Mycall was born in Worcester, England, in 1757, and
died in Newburyport, 1 June, 1840, aged 83. He came to this
country in 1775, and for some time taught school at Amesbury ;
was the printer, editor and publisher of the " Essex Journal," of
Newburyport, from June, 1780, to 1790. He was called



416



THE CHANDLER FAMILY.



" Master Mycall." He had an inexhaustible vein of humor
which he often gratified at the expense of others. A newspaper
not long since published the following remembrance of him :—

" Reading ones own Obituary.— In the days of old Mycall,
the publisher of the Newburyport Herald (a journal still alive
and flourishing), the sheriff of Essex, Philip Bagley, had been
asked several times to pay up his arrears of subscription. At
last, one day he told Mycall that he would certainly hand it
over the next morning as sure as he lived, « If you don't £>- e t
your money to-morrow you may be sure I am dead,' said he.
The morning came and passed, but no money. Judge of the
sheriff's feelings when, on the morning of the day after, he
opened his Herald and saw announced the lamented" decease of
Philip Bagley, Esq., sheriff of the County of Essex ; with an
obituary notice attached, giving the deceased credit for a aood
many excellent traits of character, but adding that he bad one
fault very much to be deplored ; he was not punctual in paying
the printer. Bagley, without waiting for his breakfast, started
for the Herald office. On the way it struck him as singular that
none of his many friends and acquaintances he met seemed to be
surprised to see him. They must have read their morning
paper. Was it possible they cared so little about him as to
have forgotten already that he was no more? Full of perturba-
tion, he entered the printing office in propria persona, to deny
that he was dead. 'Why, sheriff!' exclaimed the facetious
editor, 'I thought you were defunct.' 'Defunct!' exclaimed
the sheriff, 'what put that idea in your head?' ' Why, you,

yourself!' said Mycall. 'Did you not tell me' 'Oh!

ah ! yes ! ' stammered out the sheriff. • Well, there's your
money. And now contradict the report in the next paper, if
you please.' 'That's not necessary, friend Bagley,' said the
old joker ; ' it was printed in only one copy.' "

Mr. Mycall left considerable property to his wife, who lived
his widow ten years, and died at the age of 86, and her remains
were laid by his— a few rods from her first ''death-divided
friend."

Mr. Samuel Chandler, Jr., graduated at H. C. 1775. He
went privateering ; was captain in West India trade ; and after
that taught school in Newburyport. He possessed a literary
taste, which he had cultivated by education. He was a quiet,
peaceable citizen, and much respected.

The children of Samuel and Elizabeth (Parsons) Chandler
were :

1424. i. Samuel, b. in Newburyport, 14 Dec. 1783; m. Elizabeth
Wyatt, of Newburyport.

Rev. SAMUEL 6 CHAXDLER (David, 5 Josiah,' William*
William* William 1 ) and Lucy?

There are traditions about Samuel 6 Chandler among his
relatives in Andover that are very vague. It is said of him that
when a boy he manifested a strong desire to tit for college, and
urged his parents to furnish him the means. He succeeded in
his ardent wish, and was graduated in 1779 at H. U. He then
travelled in Syria, visited" Jerusalem and the Holy Sepulchre,
for all of which the small property of the family was largely
drawn upon. ,One tradition is that he married a lady of°the
West Indies, and was a long time from his Andover relatives,
and there was among them much anxiety about him. At length
a man appeared to his Andover and Heading friends calling
himself the long-lost Samuel Chandler. He turned out to be
an impostor. But when at length the real Samuel appeared to
his sister, who was nearly twenty years his junior, and had but
little recollection of him, as he had left home while she was
quite young, she treated him coldly, as she said, but told him
to go to South Reading to see his mother, who had married, 10
Nov. 1779, Daniel Parker. But she soon repented of her
coldness to him, and immediately sent after him, but he could
not be found. He did not then go to see his mother. Another
tradition is, that soon after leaving college he went to
Philadelphia, and was a clerk or cashier of a bank there, and
married a lady of so much style and fashion, that when he came

on north with her he found his family so low in the world that
they stopped only long enough to take a cup of tea and went off.

Perhaps the tallowing letter will help to clear up sonic of the
rumors about him : —

'■ Chesapeake Frigate, January 31, 1801.
Honored Mother :

I have heen favored with a letter from Col. Reed, inclosing
yours to him making inquiry for your son — meaning myself. Of Col.
Reed's politeness and your tender regards I entertain the most
grateful sense.

I was informed some years past, when residing in the West Indies,
that a lingering consumption had deprived me of that tender mother,
who through the goodness of Divine Providence still lives and in-
quires for those to whom she has given birth. Many are the chang-
ing scenes, honored mother, I have experienced since I heard from
you. Most of my time has been spent in New York and Philadelphia.
I have, however, visited all the United States, the West Indies and
Floridas. and have been in different occupations, but mostly tutor in
different colleges.

You may recollect when we were at our family habitation in An-
dover, how sensibly affected I was by the religious discourses deliver-
ed by the Rev. Parson French. Whatever has been my life since that
time, I have now resumed the profession of a minister; and as the
morning of my life was spent in religious (services), so shall its eve-
ning be, if God spares it. and hope its meridian faults will be pardon-
ed by him whom they have offended. The greatest consolations in
this life I find are derived from a virtuous life. I am now bound to
the Mediterranean against the Turks ; shall visit Egypt, the place
where the Israelites were once prisoners, then proceed to Jerusalem,
the land of Canaan, and. if possible, go to the River Euphrates,
where was situated the Garden of Eden ; then return to visit my
mother, if God spares my life.

Yours with filial esteem,

Samuel 6 Chandler."
