Dr. William Vance Chandler & Family, Baldwin, Habersham County, GA


In this photo:
Dr. William Vance "Will" Chandler, his wife Tallulah Christine "Tina" Jones Chandler and their children William Pinckney "Billy" Chandler and Julia Nelle Chandler.
This picture appears to be taken outside their home on Chandler Street in Baldwin, Habersham County, Georgia around 1920. My grandfather Billy was born in April of 1914 and Julia Nelle was born in October of 1917- she looks to be about 2 years old at the time.
Will Chandler was born in Greenville County, South Carolina in 1867. He is the son of Pinckney Lafayette Chandler and Susan Elliotte Vance Chandler, both from Greenville County. Will attended medical school in Chattanooga, Tennessee and moved to Baldwin, Georgia.
His wife Tina Jones was born in Hall County, Georgia. She is the daughter of William Bartley Jones and Matilda Ann Wiley, both from Hall County. Tina taught school before marrying Dr. Chandler.
Will and Tina had 3 children. Mary Christine died as a toddler. My grandfather, Billy Chandler lived until 1995 and his little sister Julia Nelle Chandler Crane died in 1978. The entire family is buried in the Baldwin Cemetery, Baldwin, Georgia.
