She was b. in Eastown, Saratoga Co., N. Y., 3 Aug. 1780;
d. 13 Dec. 1848, of consumption, and was buried in the yard
by the Chandler School-house near where they had lived, in

She was daughter of William Guy, a soldier of the Revolution,
by his wife Phebe Galucia, b. 9 July, 1760.

he sold to Maj. Gen. Mieah 5 Brooks, "a pioneer in Western
New York," who settled there in 1830. A granite monument
at Nunda says he "was son of Rev. David 4 Brooks, of Cheshire,
Conn., the son of Enos, 3 the son of Thomas, 2 the son of Henry 1
Brooks, who came from Cheshire, England, 1660, to New
Haven, Conn."

In 1837, William 6 Chandler, Esq., moved with his family to
Chardon, Geauga Co., Ohio, and settled four miles north of the
court-house, where he bought a farm of 100 acres, on which
resided, 1864, his daughter Clarissa G. Kockafellow. He died
there 5 Sept. i860, aged 6G years 2 mos. 7 days, "in hope of
a blessed immortality beyond the grave."
