Is 1874 his birth date? If so, I didn't find him in the 1880 census of Essex Co., VA, but there is a Richard Chandler, age 63, mulatto, b. VA

Particularly if you have any more information such as the names of his parents, spouses, siblings, children. 

There is one Richard b. in Essex, VA but the birth date is 1875.  That record lists parents as Richard and Laine.

Another Thomas Richard Chandler - married to Lulu Belle Conner has records indicating birth of Dec. 1872 in VA - but other records show GA?

I put some examples below.  Maybe you will recognize the family member names.

Good Luck
