Chandler lived.

Zachariah Chandler lived at Roxbury, Mass., during his
minority, and drove a milk-cart to Boston, which work and his
living below (in Roxbury), was an objection to him in his
obtaining a wife, for which reason the Pattens opposed it ; but at
a suitable age he came back to Bedforc to reside, and to take
care of the patrimonial estate ; and before he was 21 years old
he married. He lived in the house opposite the residence of his
son, Samuel Chandler, Esq. He bought one of the old Billings
Collection of Sacred Music for his sons Thomas and Samuel,
who were then about ten and twelve years old, which is supposed
to have lvcen the first singing book in Bedford. Josiah Chandler,
of Andovcr, was their teacher. [See 612.1

Zachariah Chandler was one of the Revolutionary patriots of
Bedford; selectman in 1784. Pie said in his will of 1(5 July,
1827, " I give one undivided half part " " of the farm in
s d Bedford which I bought of one James Martin," to each of
" my sons."

In 1791 it was voted in town meeting at Bedford, " that
Zachariah Chandler serve (with others) as fish reaf." He died

him and his two oldest sons who also settled there"" Chandler's
Valley." There was but one small clearing in the valley then.
He took up two hundred acres there. The soil is light, on a
gravelly subsoil, easy to till, and better to settle on when the
soil was new, as his son John said, but not as good as the hills
around it, where his children afterwards lived." His house was
burned in 1814. He was on Newfoundland Banks, cod-fishing,
when he first heard of the breaking out of the Revolutionary
War, in 1775. He entered a privateer and helped take ten
