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.

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.

Hi, my name is Lisa Knotts Miller, Zedekiah is my 3 times great grandpa. I was wondering about his supposed murder. Is there anything on it other then hear say. IE court records or newspaper articles. If so where can I find them? Would like to know more about this. Thanks Lisa

Alma Fawley
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.

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
