    Leona Chandler was my Grandmother, we know so little about her as she passed before my dad grew up. Any information would help.

    As of April, 2010 Wilma the last surviving child of Leona passed away, so no one is left to fill in the blanks. I am trying to find out among many things how Leona died, all of her kids(Wilma?) died of cancer, not yet sure how Wilma died.

      I wish I could be of more help. All the info I have on Leona Chandler Wetherell is the little but I have on my blog. Most of that I got off another member on ancestry.com (daughter of John Chandler, one of Leona’s brothers).

      I’m sorry I wasn’t more help.
