CHANDLER, Elizabeth Margaret, author, born in Centre, near Wihningto9, Del., 24 December, 1807; died 22 November, 1834. She was the daughter of Thomas Chandler, a Quaker farmer, was educated at the Friends' school in Philadelphia, and began at an early age to write verses. Her poem " The Slave-Ship," written when she was eighteen years old, gained the prize offered by the "Casket," a month-l v magazine. She became a contributor to the Genius of Universal Emancipation," a Philadelphia periodical favoring the liberation of the slaves, and in it nearly all her subsequent writings appeared. In 1830, with her aunt and brother, she removed to a farm near Tecumseh, Lenawee County, Michigan, and from there continued her contributions in prose and verse on the subject of slavery. A collection of her poems and essays was edited, with a memoir, by Benjamin Lundy (Philadelphia, 1836).
