The daughter of a Quaker physician, Elizabeth Margaret Chandler was born in Wilmington, Delaware and raised in Philadelphia where, orphaned, she studied at a Quaker school to the age of thirteen. She lived in Philadelphia, laboring as an abolitionist and contributing poetry to the periodicals and serving as poetry editor for The Genius of Universal Emancipation (1828-34). Failing health led her to migrate to Michigan with her aunt and brother, where she died in 1834.
