Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Fulton County and lived there until 1965. We expect to retire back there to our 14+ acres that we own, across the creek from the house where I was born. I started to work with my mother on the Mellott Genealogy starting in 1958. My first work was to organize the data into a workable, simple system that would minimize individual records. In Fulton County, it was not unusual to be related by both father and mother on your mother's side (maternal) and both mother and father on your father's side (faternal). My mother would keep loose leaf notebooks on all four of these connections. I use what I call a 'birth order' system and always follows the male 'Mellott Decendant' if there is one. If there is no male 'Mellott Decendant' then it follows the female 'Mellott Decendant'. Everyone has a 'birth order' based on your birth order in your family. My birth order number is 0309 0205 0212. I am the 12th in my family, my dad was 2nd in his family, my grandfather was 5th in his family, my great grandfather was 2nd in his family and so on. The 03 is Obediah Roy Mellott Sr., the 3rd son of Elder John B. Mellott. Two people will never have the same 'birth order' number. When my mother, Catharine Harriet (Keefer) Mellott (0309 0205 022) died in 1991, I was given all her records. I am still organizing her handwritten work.

Richard Kendall

Hi. I have been researching Richard Kendall, Seaman 1st class on the USS Caddo. I have found that he and others on board the Caddo were forced off the ship by a German U boat and put into three life boats.. One of the three life boats was rescued but the other two were never seen again. Richard was on one of those life boats that was lost. His body was never recovered.

I contacted and had memorial #73707133 turned into a cenotaph since he is not buried there. His wife had him added to the stone but his body is not there which is why it is now classified as a cenotaph. You may want to remove your picture of his parents' stone from that memorial/cenotaph in Newville Cemetery and create a memorial for that picture in Union Cemetery since that is where the stone is and then contact edit to have them make it into a cenotaph. Only they can change a memorial into a cenotaph.
