First Football Casualty

While doing some research on the 1924 Appalachian League post season games I came across this little nugget.
The Boston Herald - September 13, 1924

John Beaty Chandler, Jr. was born on January 7, 1908 and died on September 11, 1924.  He was the son of John Beaty Chandler and Edith Peel Chandler.  His younger brother, Wilfred, went on to serve, and to die, in World War II.  Both men, as well as their parents, are buried in Lynnhurst Cemetery in Knoxville.
