Timothy Chandler of Concord, New Hampshire.

Major Timothy Chandler was born on April 25, 1762 and died on August 9, 1848. He was apprenticed to a local maker on hand cards for carding wool. He moved for a short time to Connecticut and moved back to Concord in 1785. It is not known who he learned clockmaking from. A possibility would include Peregrine White of Woodstock, Connecticut or Jonathan Hale of Pomfret, Connecticut. In Concord, he became a prolific clockmaker until his retirement in 1829. In 1797 he enlisted with the minute Men and received the commission of Major in 1799. Chandler had many interests, some of which included card making, goldsmith, silversmith, fireward and many other civic positions.
