Who is this John Chandler?

This John Chandler apparently lived in South Carolina.   At some point, he is said to have moved to the Buncombe/Yancey area of North Carolina.

He is said to have died in 1825.  Logically, this would be Buncombe Co., NC.  His probate ( the testator Index does not show a will for John Chandler, so he died intestate) should be in Buncombe Co., NC.

Joseph Callahan ( b abt 1781, d aft 1850) is reported to be an heir of John Chandler.  This implies that he was a son in law.

I would appreciate any information that someone may have.  In order to find the needle in the haystack, I must. first, find the farm that has the haystack in question.

There is supposed to be a probate record for John Chandler in 1825 Buncombe Co NC.  This probate is supposed to have Joseph Callahan as a heir of John Chandler.

I have to get and read that record.

I have read that the father of Joseph Callahan is either Henry Callahan or Joel Callahan.

I do not know if either one is true.

I am just starting out chasing the ancestors of Joseph Callahan.

Thank you.

Buncombe Co., NC deed Book 13, p 523.   1825.

The land of John Chandler ( bought in 1806) was settled among the heirs.

Joseph Callahan signed as an heir.
hello , I was recently going through my source images and I came across a marriage certificate for my great grandmother and father , My great grand father was Charles Chandler , he was married to Lizzie Lorenson , my great grandmother, his father was George Chandler his wifes name was Mary Ann, so its not any of them , but on the certificate also listed as a witness is John Chandler and his wife Sarah, I am guessing that he was my great uncle. just a guess , but i will try to do some more searching.
