Aim my road on your bow of hope and in a frenzy I will free my flock of arrows. --
Danieland Hannah Candler are the progenitors of most* American Candlers.
The earliest documented evidence of their presence in the Colonies dates from the 1750ís at South River Settlement - present-day Lynchburg, VA. There is good circumstantial evidence that they were there from the late 1740ís.
*Daniel Candler was not the earliest Candler to come to Colonial America nor the first in Virginia
