Skip, you are so right. The spelling is all according to how a clerk heard
it or thought it was to be spelled. My mother always said her family was
spelled Kindle, but I find them spelled Kendall earlier, so who knows the
right spelling. One says they are English and another says they are
German. I do know my ancestor from Perry Co., is buried in the Methodist
cemetery, so I believe he must be of the English Clan. Nettie
