Bio and Links
Bio Photo This memorial shows four families from my family tree: Coffin, Macy, Starbuck, and Folger.

I first became interested in genealogy about 1955, when I found out there was a book called The Mendenhalls of England, the United States and Africa and I really wanted to know what they were doing in Africa. Since then I have found the Mendenhall Family website and learned a lot about my ancestors, one of whom is buried near the Taj Mahal. After the death of my husband in 2003, I moved back to the family farm near Hidalgo, Illinois. I have traveled to visit my ancestors' gravesites and other family history locations in Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, Indiana, and nearby in Illinois, as well as those of my husband in Sleepy Hollow, New York. I am a member of the Mendenhall Family Association and my granddaughter and I attended their reunion in Mendenhall, Pennsylvania, in 2010.

The family lines I am interested in include Mendenhall, Swick, Hunt, Goebel, Keenan, Parsons, Cramer, Van Tassel, Woodard, Rodebaugh, Jobe, and more.

RE: Thomas Keenan 1798-1866
Well I can See there is no reasoning with you...but My 2nd Great Grandmother is his Daughter Belinda (Malinda) Keenan, and Letitia "Letty" Davis is her Mother. and She was born 1829

So by way of Factual Reasoning My 3rd Great Grandfather is this Thomas Keenan.

RE: Thomas Keenan 1798-1866
well I do plan to believe a certified document that can be ordered. pertaining to a marriage. and Im not trying to start an arguement but just wanted you to be aware of the error , Thomas Keenan is the Father of my 2nd Great Grandmother. so if the information is wrong it should be family that should be responsible to correct it.

that is all im saying. the record does state that he married her Catherine Swats O'Neil 1847

I copied the information linking to the certified marriage document..

Name: Thomas Keenan
Spouse: Catherine O'Neil
Marriage Date: 4 Aug 1848
Marriage Place: Worcester
Source: Vital Records of Worcester
Full Text: KEENAN, Thomas and Catherine O'Neil, Aug. 4, 1848.

It doesnt make any sense to me how the marriage record can state on thing and then in the 1850 census record for Ohio. have the information below (please keep in mind that Malinda is Belinda and her married name is Lincoln not Linkin spelt.

Name Age
Thomas Keenan 59
Leticia Keenan 42
James Keenan 17
Rachel Keenan 14
Catharine Keenan 11
Isabel Keenan 9
Emily Keenan 2
Loyd Keenan 2
John Linkin 22
Malinda Linkin 22

so I do know I have the Right Thomas Keenan but the Marriages are a mystery.

if you are a relative..then we should not be fighting but get to the truth of the I can Keep my records to the Family Straight to coincide with yours.

Deborah Baunce Lake Trexler

I noticed you created a memorial in 2009 for my 2nd great grandmother, Deborah. Are you related to her? She was first married to James Lake, after he passed away she married Jackson Trexler. My line runs from Trexler. I wanted to let you know there was already a memorial created for her #20853317. It's under Trexler. I did notice you had her maiden name, Baunce, spelled correctly. So many put Bounce. Are you related through that line? I can't get past her parents on my research. I'd be very interested in any information you might have on her.

I appreciate you honoring my request for a photo of MS Fawley. I believe she is the first wife of my grandmother's second husband. I am trying to piece together more information about the life of my grandmother and her 3 husbands so was interested to know about Alma. Thank you so much! Irene Walls Barrett

I have searched the records for Bethel Cemetery and there are no Mendenhalls buried there. The man in charge of the cemeteries in Bethel Twp, Miami County Ohio has no record of any Mendenhalls in Bethel Cemetery.
