Jeff Chandler — Not really a Chandler at all! His real name was Ira Grossel. I used to fantasize that maybe, just maybe, he looked a bit like Daddy Tom and must be a relation.

Hardy (Frances Milligan Chandler's maternal grandfather's line)
Pedigree Chart for Henry Hardy — from Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
Stanley and Kindred Families — Compiled by Florence and John Guttery of Jasper, Alabama, 1964.
The Stanleys came from England and they were Earls of Derby and Lord Stanleys there. I come directly through them as follows: my mother was Clara Belle Douglass (of Red Douglass clan of Scotland) and her grandmother Douglass Francis Jester Hardy whose ancestor John Hardy came 1660 to Isle of Wight County, Virginia, from England. They go back to Sir John Hardy Lord Mayor of London whose wife was Margaret de la Pole, daughter of Richard de La Pole, Earl of Suffolk and his wife Lady Mary de Stanley, daughter of George de Stanley, Earl of Derby, Surety of Magna Charta. You can find in Burke’s Peerage, this line with coat of arms, etc.

North Carolina - Home to many of Johnstone Clan
The county seat of Duplin County is Kenansville and a museum, Freedom Hall, was the family home of the Kenan family. Our line goes back Chandler/Malpass/Frederick/Kenan/Johnstone. Johnston County is named for Gabriel Johnston, colonial governor of North Carolina and brother to our Johnston ancestress, Elizabeth. Johnston County uses the latin version of the Clan Motto and also the Coat of Arms for its own.
