    Notes 
    • As soon as the news of the battle of Lexingthon, April 19, 1775, reached Concord, Captain Abiel Chandler raised a volunteer company of thirty-six men and marched to Cambridge, Massachusetts, where they remained a fortnight. The town of Concord voted "That Captain Abiel Candler and those who went with him to Cambridge, upon the alarm of April last, be paid by the Parish at the same rate as other troops in this Colony are paid." Lieutenant Abiel Candler was in Captain Joshua Abbot's company at Bunker Hill, and acted as ensign in Starke's regiment, and that company was on the extreme left and had not the slightest protection of rail fence or hay even in the fight.

      At Ticonderoga,1776, he was adjutant of Colonel John Stark's regiment, under Brigadier-General Sullivan. He died at Crown Point while in the service.
