RE: Shelton Church Cnadley
I have linked what I could. I cannot link Omer Ray Church to his parents because I do not maintain his memorial page. You will have to send a message to Poppy, the maintainer of this memorial. Actually what you are supposed to do is to send editing requests by clicking on the memorial that you want edited at the top of the page over towards the right where there is a tab that says "Edit". Then click on "suggest a correction..." and type in what you want done on that particular memorial. So to ask Poppy to link Omer to his parents you would do this and then give Poppy the memorial numbers for his father and mother to be linked.

RE: Chandleys
Since you have a 423 area code in your phone number, I assume you live in this general area (Limestone, Johnson City, Bristol, Kingsport, etc.) .... is that correct? But, I just tried the number and seem to get continued busy signals. Once I know where you live, we can explore the idea of perhaps meeting to travel to the cemetery. Also, with your correct e-mail address, I can send you a copy of Lonnie with six of his and Hannah's seven children (Gladys was not present). I just sent a test e-mail to be sure it's correct. If it doesn't come back, I'll proceed to the next step. Take care, James

Responding to Your Message
Unfortunately, I sold all 100 copies of Mom's book "Remembering" several years ago and am not sure if it will ever be re-published. In it, I have a picture of all of Lonnie and Hannah's children except Gladys. She was probably already deceased at the time the picture was made. They were standing near Haney Cemetery, the same cemetery where Lonnie and Hannah are buried.

I am not sure if you are interested in such things but we, as descendants of this family, are eligible to be members of the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) or SAR (Sons of the American Revolution). Going back thru about seven generations, Lonnie, thru his mother Milam, is descended from John Sevier, first governor of Tennessee, who fought at King's Moutain in the Revolutionary War. Several of the cousins (myself included) as well as their off-spring have already joined these societies. Once application is made, it can take up to a year for your genealogy to be confirmed but, when it is, and dues are paid, you're in. No particular benefit except pride in being members of these select groups. However, it sometimes opens up other avenues of research to help in establishing family trees. If you will send me a valid copy of your personal e-mail address, I can send you a copy of Lonnie's family picture as mentioned. Take care, James Chandley

Responding to Your Query about Gladys
It's always great to hear from another relative. As you know, Gladys was one of the three girls born to Lonnie and Hannah Chandley (they also had four boys). Unfortunately, about the only thing I know about her is what Mom told me before she passed away in December of 2010. That and the fact that I found her grave which is located in the Horse Creek Church of God Cemetery. Mom didn't know much but said she understood Gladys had a hard life and died at a relatively young age. On the other hand, her sisters Ella and Zoa lived much longer, Zoa just passing away in the past few years. I wish I could point you in a direction that might result in your finding a photo but am afraid I can't. I'm sure you know Lonnie's family was split up at a very young age so it's a miracle they were able to survive as well as they did. I know my dad (Girlia) used to talk about having to "find a place to stay" after his mother Hannah died. They lived in some very hard times at the depth of the great depression and things probably didn't get much better until they moved away from Shelton Laurel. At any rate, it's great to hear from you .... wish I could be of more help. Best wishes, James Chandley
