Subject: [Q-R] Mendenhall
Date: Fri, 13 Apr 2012 22:21:37 -0500
I sent this to Dale yesterday and want to add some new information.
<I have the date of marriage of Esther to John Mendenhall as 8 9m 1708 Concord MM Chester County, PA and she died 1709 and list no children. No documentation listed>
Searching online I found the birth record of Esther recorded in the "Register of Births belonging to the Quarterly Meeting of Cheshire and Staffordshire from 1648 - 1783"
Ester Daughtr of Nathan and Alice Maddock of Chester born 16 12m 1661 (As Quakers used the number for the month this would be February. Remember before 1753 the year began with March.)
(This also would make the date of her marriage to John Mendenhall to be 8 9m 1708 or 8 Nov 1708, but if you write as November you need to explain how the original had it.)
Have copy of the original record of her birth that I found online. Searched for the marriage of her to Peter but did not find that record online.
