Colaborador: jdeanhagler Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

James V. Chandler, who will be celebrating his 86th birthday Wednesday, recalled his early years in Inkom while chatting at his farm home on Buckskin road northeast of Inkom. It was in November 1911 when he came to Inkom from the Twin Falls country. He was just 20 years old, and his first home was in a little log house near the location of the present church. Chandler found a job in Portnuef hauling rock for road surfacing and was paid a sum of 25 cents an hour. In those days, that was the average wage. He later had a job hauling hay to the George A Whitworth dairy in Inkom, which supplied milk to the surrounding areas. Whitworth hired Chandler to milk cows, which he did for 16 months, night and morning without missing one milking and all by hand. His job was to milk 20 of the herd twice each day. After four years of courting Vera, one of Whitworth's daughters, the two were married in the fall of 1917. Their first home was the Holly place in Buckskin basin. "we just had a small place," Jim said, "but we were happy and had good times." Jim and Vera had 12 children. They farmed and ran cattle in Buckskin for many years.Then in the fall of 1935, they moved closer to Inkom It was here that Vera died. Some time later, he married his present wife, the former Geneva Evans. Besides farming, Chandler worked as a road boss for the highway department and operated a threshing machine for several years. Chandler has been active in his church, filling a mission in the Montana are. He served as Elders Quorum president, high priest group leader, senior Aaronic instructor, and more recently a home teacher. "There is no secret to living 86 years," Jim said. "I've worked for a living since I was 12 years old, and it has been a good life." Many of Chandler's children still live in this area. The eight daughters are Mrs. Homer (Maren) Barron, Mrs. Don (Marie) Moser, Mrs. Edward (Beatrice) Shaffer, all of Inkom; Mrs. Warren (Alice) Jones, Van Nuys, California, Mrs. George (Anora) Woods, Oregon; Mrs Jack (Denice) White, Bancroft; Mrs Clarence (Thelma) Hitbrand and Mrs Robert (Pril) Hale, Pocatello. Chandler's sons are; Orsen of Pocatello, Samuel, George and Seren all of Inkom. He also has 60 grandchildren, 44 great-grandchildren and one great greaty grandchild at this time.
