Chandler, Allen
The remains of Allen Chandler, a young man whom we understand was born and raised in this city, were brought here Tuesday afternoon from Eagle Lake, and buried in the cemetery west of town. He was a son of the late Tom Chandler, a young man of about 24 or 25 years, an industrial[sic] moral young man, possessing many friends throughout this section, and his death at a time when life promised most is deeply and sincerely deplored. Mr. Chandler was married about eighteen months ago, and is survived by his widow and numerous relatives. Our sincere sympathy is extended the bereaved friends and relatives.

Weimar Mercury, April 30, 1915

Mr. Allen Chandler, about twenty-seven years of age, died at his home on Lake Avenue at midnight last Monday after, an illness of nearly a year, of a complication of troubles. Mr. Chandler came to Eagle Lake several years ago from Weimar, and for several years was with Mr. C. P. Hoyo in the work for the Lakeside Rice Irrigation Company, later he became engaged in rice growing but was forced to quit work on account of his failing health. A little more than two years ago he was united in marriage to Miss Lottie Rakestraw, who survives him, and who gave tender devotion and loving care during his long illness. The remains were shipped to Weimar on Tuesday afternoon's train, interment taking place in that city. The remains were accompanied to Weimar by the young heartbroken wife of the deceased, Mr. W. J. Taylor and Mrs. H. C. Thomas and Mrs. Harold Townley, sister of Mrs. Chandler. To the sorrowing young wife the Headlight tenders its sincerest sympathy in her deep grief
