If you are discussing Mehitable CHANDLER of Andover, MA, I have a tidbit of information to offer.
I borrowed the "History of Westford, MA" from the library, and, while browsing it, I found a few references to the CROSBY name.(It's not in the Genealogy section.)One reference states:"Andrew SPALDING.....was never a permanent resident.His son, Andrew became a citizen, and also his step-son by the name of CROSBY.He married in 1745, Mrs. Mehitable (CHANDLER) CROSBY of Andover,and her sons, Jonah, Robert, Joel, and Josiah came to Westford with her.They removed to New Ipswich - soon - about 1750..(some removed to Maine)...."
..... My interest in Westford, MA, is for theKIDDER, PARKER, KEYES, and CHAMBERLAIN names.And a "Proctor" KIDDER in the town had a 2nd marriage to a Clarissa CROSBY.No one knows who she was or where she came from.She was born ~1804 - someplace.I am now wondering if she was somehow related to the above family.
