Hi Nancy and List, I have not noticed the Corder name in any of my Quaker
records but I do know if you can get your hands on any of the Ohio Quaker records
you will find your Mendenhall connection to Benjamin Mendenhall & John
Mendenhall, George Strowd/STRODE , William Cloud on Gilbert Cope's 1693 Concord,
Chester CO PA tax list.
I was asked where do I get all of my info for immigrant Quakers and it comes
from Gilbert Cope & Futhey's History of Chester CO PA & Bio-Sketches pub. in
1881. I bought this book from Higgison's book company for 125 dollars with the
added index added to it. I am still finding names not listed in this book's
Gilbert Cope has tax lists for Chester CO. PA listing some of the townships
for 1693,1715,1722, 1724 , 1753 and 1774. This book is the bible for Quaker
families in America.
Gilbert Cope also did Bio-Sketches for many of the immigrant Quakers to
Chester CO PA and I use these for connections.
I use the Chester CO PA deed books 1681-1730 -1729-1753 , 1753-1758 and I
need more because many of the early deed are not recorded until many years later
and that why I need deed after 1758.
I have will abstracts for Chester CO PA 1713-1748 and 1748-1766 and need
I have some Quaker marriages for many townships and if a marriage is not
listed in the home town of your Quaker ancestor then look at all of the others and
you may find the missing son or dau. there.

PA Quaker MMs .
