Re: Henry Bender and Nancy Chandler Civil War Pension File
My grandparents were Henry Bender and Nancy Chandler. My father, Charles Francis Bender, was their son.The grandparents are buried in Wesley Chapel cemetery Newman, Illinois.Seven children were born to Charles F.Only two daughters are still living.
Henry and Nancy came to Newman from Camargo, IL.
I think Henry (German) entered the U.S. at Philadelphia, PA.
I'm attempting a family tree and found a 1930 U.S.Censuswith my mother (Nora Wax Bender) as head of household: Norah T. Bender.It lists the seven offspring.
If this sounds like your Bender my e-mail address is displayed.
