    (A303) UPPMAN/CHANDLER - See VR. of Duxbury,. Mass (1911) for a birth record of Rebecca. ch. of Perez & Rebecca 21 Nov. 1794, and secondly the m. of Rebecca & Antone UPHAM, 8 Feb. 1821. A third item is the death record of Perez. husband of Rebecca. 13 Mar, 1832, of consumption at age 67, and a d. record for Perez (Sr.) 28 Jan. 1800, in the 70th year. See also Chandler Parsom. Edmnnd Chaundeler, Geofrey Parsons and Allied Families, by Mary Chandler Lowell 1911). 1 believe your Chandler line to be Perez5, Philip4, Joseph3-2, Edmund1, d. 1662. If you get the probate records from the two Perez Chandlers, 1800 and 1832, I believe you will find them to be the father and grand father of your Rebecca. I plan to publish a Chandler Genealogy of the first five or six generations and allied families and would appreciate info.
