----Source: Greenwood Gleaner 2/10/1910


Carlton L. Chandler passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Robert O. Smith Jan. 28, 1910 aged 87 years, 1 month and 26 days.

The deceased was born at Potsdam, N.Y., Dec. 2, 1822, where he grew to manhood and followed the lumber and sawmill business. Mr. Chandler was married twice. He was first united with Miss Jennie Richardson at Rochester, Vt., June 1856, two children were born. The late Mrs. A. W. Goodrick (nee Ella Chandler), who died in St. Paul, Dec. 21, 1908, and one child passed away in infancy a few hours previous to its mother's death, which occurred Aug. 8th, 1862. He was married to Mary J. Burt of Stockholm, N.Y., Oct. 23, 1864. The following year the subject of this sketch came to Clark County, then a wilderness. He purchased a farm at Weston Rapids two miles north of Neillsville in 1866, where he continuously resided until 1883, when he built a home in Neillsville, where he lived most of the time up to his wife's death, which occurred on Oct. 8th, 1899.  Shortly after he went to reside with his daughter and nearly one year with his son at Blanchardville, at which places he had the best of care and his declining years have been pleasant and enjoyable.

The deceased was a very industrious man. He followed the business of logging to a limited extent and did a great deal of hard work in clearing up his farm and assisting in laying the foundation for what is now one of the best counties in the state. He was of very pleasant and genial disposition, and leaves many friends who will ever retain pleasant memories of the departed.


He is survived by his two children, Mrs. Robert Smith of Oakes, N.D., and Carleton Chandler of Blanchardville, Wis, who were with him during his last illness.
Funeral services were held at the M. E. Church at Oakes, N.D. Monday Jan. 31st. The remains accompanied by his son were brought to Neillsville for burial, services being conducted by Rev. Burrows. Thus an old pioneer and highly respected citizen has been called to his reward.  (Rep. Press)
