Thurman on Monday, January 3, 2000
- Noticed the obit of Blanche JORDAN MENDENHALL who married Thomas J.
MENDENHALL on 5/17/1950 who died in 1965. My great-grandfather was
Thomas Jefferson Mendenhall (b.1845 d.1920)who married Susan Mary
GIDDINGS in 1869 (b.8/16/1844 d. 1922). Thomas had siblings named
Phillip, Elizabeth, Benjamin, and William. My great-grandparents left IA
or IL in 1893 to make the "land run" in OK, homesteading on
9/16/1893. Can anyone out there shed any more light on the Mendenhalls?
Any help would be appreciated.
