Chandler, and mother of Carson F. Chandler, Esq., of Snow Hill, died suddenly of cerebral hemorrhage about one o'clock this (Friday) morning at the home of her son in Snow Hill. Mrs. Chandler had been enjoying her usual good health, and on Tuesday she had visited her brother and sister in Onancock She retired on Thursday night about ten o'clock, and was stricken about half after twelve o'clock. Her sudden passing away was a great shock to her family, relatives and friends. Mrs. Chandler is survived by three sons, Carson F. Chandler, of Snow Hill, with whom she has made her home since the death of her husband, in January 1922; Thomas S. Chandler, of Baltimore, and Oscar M. Chandler, of Ocean City. She is also survived by two brothers, Thomas Fitzgerald, of near Accomac, Va, and Charles H. Fitzgerald, of Onancock, Va, and a sister. Miss Sallie Fitzgerald, of Onancock. Mrs. Chandler was a native of Virginia, having been born in Hampton August l9th, 1847. Her parents were Thomas Fitzgerald and Margaret Hopkins Fitzgerald, members of old and well known families of the Eastern Shore. After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Fitzgerald located in Hampton, where Mr. Fitzgerald was engaged in the mercantile business. Mrs. Chandler attended Hampton Academy, at which institution she received the groundwork of a liberal education. She was an aristocratic, refined and highly cultured woman. She had a retentive memory, and was a splendid conversationalist. Having lived through the stirring scenes of the Civil War, she recalled many interesting historical events connected with the four-year period the war lasted, and the reconstruction days that followed. After Hampton was burned by the Confederates, to keep the city from falling into the hands of the Union forces, her father moved to his plantation near Hamilton, where his death occurred in 1863. Following his death his family went to Onancock to reside. Mrs. Chandler, then Miss Fitzgerald, taught in a private school at Onancock, until her marriage to Mr. Chandler, a prominent resident of Accomac County. She had a brother, who enlisted in the Confederate army, while he was attending college, and gave his life for the ''lost cause." Mrs. Chandler was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. She was a splendid Christian woman and a kind and affectionate mother. A nature so rare and exalted, and possessing human qualities so refined and beneficent that she attracted and charmed, while her children "rise up and call her blessed." Funeral services will be held at the house, and burial will be in Whatcoat M.E. Cemetery beside her husband.4
