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.

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.

Just to let you know - I think you may have accidentally put a wrong picture on this grave. Would you check to see if you have a headstone picture for George?
Thanks, Amy Anderson

Thank you for catching the error in the death place, because yes, I did mean Crooked Creek.

And thanks for updating him and all that you've done. He's a distant cousin and I was glad to find his memorial.

You have done such a nice job on Samuel Tetric Gosley Walden memorial I thought you might be related with all the info. Would you consider allowing me to maintain gg granfather's memorial?
Thank you for all your work.
