Chauncey Landon Borden was named after his paternal great grand uncle Chauncey Perkins Landon, an early Columbus, Ohio physician. The younger Chauncey graduated from Rocky Ridge High School with a Teaching Certificate, but it is not known if he ever pursued this career path.

Chauncey was drafted to serve in World War I in CO. A, 8th Battalion, U.S. National Guard, stationed at Springfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts. During his military service, his unit was plagued with the 1918 Spanish influenza epidemic which spread throughout the U.S. Chauncey was hospitalized because of this flu. It is interesting to compare information in letters that he received in 1918 about the Spanish flu closings to that of the current 2020 closings for the Coronavirus.

Chauncey never married. He was affectionately known to his nieces and nephews as "Uncle Chan." His life ended abruptly when he was struck by a car near the home of his sister Esther Kuehnle, with whom he was living at that time.
