110 (The following is taken from the Mendenhall genealogy of Merrill Anderson)
Nathan Mendenhall was a soldier of the American Revolution. He was born in September of 1746 in Chester County, Pennsylvania. As a boy he became a carpenter's apprentice, and on reaching adulthood he worked several years in Philadelphia and Baltimore before moving to York District, South Carolina, around the year 1773. Nathan and his brother Joseph were the only known children of Robert and Phoebe Mendenhall to settle in North Carolina. Nathan's descendent Nellie Mendenhall Cooke (1897-1973) said she was told two brothers came south. One settled in Guilford and the other (Nathan) said he was going as far south as the poke weed grew. The Mendenhall genealogy of H. H. Beeson tells us Nathan married Rebecca Duckworth. The date and place of their marriage have not been learned. If Rebecca was, as has been suggested by a Duckworth family researcher, a member of a Duckworth family that came to North Carolina in the 1760's, the marriage probably took place there sometime in the early to mid-1770's. When the war broke out Nathan was drafted and served three tours of militia duty totaling 11 months. His second tour was as a mounted rifleman, protecting the settlements of western South Carolina and Georgia from the Indians. In early 1780 he came with his "small family" into Lincoln County, North Carolina. Land records show that he bought 100 acres there on December 18, 1779. On April 18, 1834, at the age of 88, he applied for a veteran's pension for his Revolutionary War service. The justice of the peace who took his statement wrote "the said Nathan lives 23 miles distant from any court of record (i.e. Lincolnton) in said county; that from his advanced age, the bodily infirities, he could not safety appear before the court to make his said declaration." His application (S7219) was accepted, and he was granted Certificate 29807. The amount of the pension per year was $36.66. The location of Nathan's home has been described as about 1 1/2 miles south of Olney Presbyterian Church at Gastonia. This area became part of Gaston County when it was formed from Lincoln County in 1846. Gaston County borders York County, South Carolina, Nathan's earlier home. The first federal census was taken in 1790. It gave the name of the head of household only and enumerated the others in the household according to sex and age. Nathan's household, consisting of six people, is listed in Morgan District, Lincoln County, North Carolina. The printed book of the North Carolina census, transcribed from the handwritten original records, shows on page 113 "Nathn, Mondenall". In the household were one free white male of 16 years and upward, one free white male under 16 years, three free white females and one slave. Nathan died July 16, 1835, and was buried at the Olney Presbyterian Church Cemetery at Gastonia. Rebecca died March 23, 1836, "in the 89th year of her age", and was buried near Nathan. Close by is a stone inscribed:
"In memory of
Who departed this life
July 11th 1804
Aged 102 years.
Draw near, young man, as you pass by,
and on this stone --- cast an eye,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for Death and follow me."
Sarah is believed to be Rebeca's mother. The fact that Rebecca's oldest known daughter was named Sarah supports this theory. Dr. John Duckworth of Kingston, Tennessee, for many years a Duckworth family researcher, believes Rebecca was of the same family as John, William and Simon Duckworth. They were sons of John and Sarah (Hankins) Duckworth, who were married in 1734 in Burlington County, New Jersey. John, Sr., died around 1755 in Frederick County, Virginia. The rest of the family may have moved to Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, in the late 1760's, when the three brothers settled on McDowell Creek there. Mecklenburg County borders Gaston and Lincoln Counties.

Research: 1790 census for North Carolina shows a Nathan in Lincoln, Co. Nathan's Revolutionary War record gives his birthdate as 1746. 
Mendenhall, Nathan (I1876)
111 (Transcribed by Jim Thoma)

Holman Lee, a well-known farmer and stockman of Boonville township, is a member of a highly respected, colonial family, a son of one of Missouri's honored pioneers. Mr. Lee was born Sept. 18, 1879, in Howard County, Mo., son of John and Susan (Talbott) Lee, the latter, a native of Kentucky.

John Lee was born March 5, 1816, in Richmond, Va., son of John Lee, Sr., and Susan (Owen) Lee, natives of Virginia. John Lee, Sr. was a son of Joel Lee, a soldier of the Revolution of 1776, who served under General Washington. The elder John Lee, with his wife and children, came from Virginia to Missouri in 1819 and this family was one of the first families of the state. John Lee, Jr. was one of the leading farmers and stockmen of Howard County, Mo., and he was also a prominent financier of Boonville, one of the organizers of the bank of Ahle, Lee & Duncia at Boonville, which bank was conducted until 1882, when Mr. Lee became head of the banking institution known as John Lee & Son, Bankers. In 1885, John Lee, Jr. sold his interest in this bank and assisted in the organization of the Commercial Bank, becoming a director, a position he held until his death in 1893.

The father died at his home at Old Franklin on Dec. 18, 1893, at the advanced age of 77 years. Mr. Lee was widely known in this section of the state. His home and farm were at Old Franklin in Howard County, but his chief business interests are in Boonville. By a former marriage, John Lee, Jr., was the father of two children, who are now living: Mrs. Ida Swinney, wife of E. F. Swinney, a prosperous banker of Kansas City, Mo., and Samuel, of Kansas City.

Bottom of Page 622

Holman Lee, subject of this review, attended Coopers Institute and the Culver Military Academy, Culver, Ind., completing his school work with a business course at Gem City Business College, Quincy, Ill. After completing the course, Mr. Lee began farming and stockraising in Howard County, Mo., where he resided until 1909, when he came to Cooper County and located on his present farm of 245 acres of well improved land. He has made unusual success in sheepraising. Mr. Lee has a herd of 600 black-faced Shropshires, 104 head of feeding cattle, 15 head of horses and mules, and 100 head of Poland China hogs.

Nov. 4, 1903, Holman Lee and Elizabeth Blackburn, adopted daughter of Carroll and Mary T. Logsdon, were united in marriage. Carroll Logsdon, grandfather and foster-father of Mrs. Lee, was one of the earliest settlers aged largest landowners in Saline County, Mo. Mrs. Lee is a graduate of William Woods College, Fulton, Mo., a member of the class of 1903 and is successfully engaged in raising poultry, keeping the best Barred Plymouth Rocks, for which she finds a ready market. Mr. and Mrs. Holman Lee are the parents of three children: Carroll, Suzanne, and Holman, Jr. The Lee family has long been highly valued in the community and respected throughout the county.

Notes for LISONA SARAH PYATT: Seaman Cemetery: Denning: Sarah; consort of Harrison d. 2 March 1837, age 26 years
2. From Denning Forum at GenForum, posted by Ray Baker, November 17, 1998:
William Henry Harrison Dennings wife Lisona Sarah Piatt was the daughter of Benjamin Piatt and Mary Waddell.
3. Called "Sally", b. ca 1808, m. Harrison Duning. Source: Piatt Family Newsletter, Volume 2, 1987 (Birthdate of 1808 is wrong, see cemetery information above)
4. From e-mail,
Cora Riffle, who joined the DAR in 1935, through Benjamin Pyatt, stated that daughter Sallie was married to Harrison Denning. Sally was listed in the 1820 census as being born 1805-10 and listed in the 1830 census as being born 1800-1810. Therefore I assume she was born before 1811.

2. Roster, Lost Wagon Train, 1853
The Elliott Wagon Train of 1853 turned off the Oregon Trail near the present-day town of Vale, Oregon and took the dry Eastern Oregon route that finally led them over the Cascades into Lane County. This trail has been well documented and researched through the efforts of Leah C. Menefee. The results of that effort was the story of "Cutoff Fever" By Leah Collins Menefee and Lowell Tiller which was published in the Oregon Historical Quarterlies, beginning with the December, 1976 Quarterly and continuing for the next 5 issues.
The Register-Guard, Eugene, Oregon, Sunday, January 8, 1984, Section C, By Bill Lynch, with a Photo by Paul Petersen, of Leah Menefee, has written about The Lost Wagon Train, which is very informative besides good reading.
The following roster of Immigrants who came to the west over the Oregon Trail in 1853 has been compiled by Leah C. Menefee over a period of many years research in her efforts and determination to compile a roster of these pioneers.
*DENNING, Job - b. West Union, Adams Co., Ohio; m. Harriet M. Wright, 12 Nov. 1863. She d. 25 July 1893. He lived in eastern
Ore. and then Douglas Co. where he resided at Lookingglass, Ore., for 39 years; d. 1915.
*DENNING, John H. - b. 1824, Ohio; probably son of Stephen Denning (see roster); DLC No. 7246, Lane Co., Ore.; left the

7. Obituary in the 'Onarga Leader and Review', Onarga, Iroquois County, Illinois, December 16, 1898 (from Gwen Thomas, April 2001): "William H. H. Denning was born in Ohio, May 19th, 1813, and died in Tuscola, Ill. Dec. 10th, 1898, in the 86th year of his life. Nearly one third of that long life was given to the care of a helpless invalid son who needed and received the constant care of his parents for 29 years. The mother, who faithfully shared with him this constant burden and care, has for nearly seven years been sharing in the bliss and blessedness of the glorified. No father was ever more layal, loving, self-denying, self-forgetting or devoted than was Father Denning. So impregnated had his life become with the thought of his helpless child that often during his last sickness, when his mind wandered, he was caring for Miltie, who had been dead for years, and calling piteously for member of the family to help him do things for the comfort of his boy.
How much of the gentleness and unselfishness of his character was born by the chair of that helpless invalid son, eternity alone can reveal.
Along the quiet and unobserved paths of life his battles were fought and victories won -- none the less battles and none the less victories because the world did not know about them. It is by no means necessary that the sublimity of the deed shall be measured by its publicity.
Father Denning removed from Ohio to Illinois in 1854. For nearly half a century he lived in this community. His life has been an alluring commentary upon the religion he professed to have obtained and enjoyed.
In 1843, he was converted, in Ohio, and for 55 years has been a devout follower of the Nazarene of whom it was said "He went about doing good." After his conversion he united with the United Brethren Church and for more than 40 years was a faithful member and worker in that church. There being no organization of that church near he joined the M. E. church and for 14 years was a member of that body.
When a young man he took a firm stand against two evils -- human slavery and the rum traffic. He lived to see the first go down. Not a slave wore the badge of servitude nor clankeda chain in all the broad domain of our loved country when he died. May his children live to see that other slavery - the drink habit - as effectually dead.
For the seven years last past he made his home with his two daughters, Mrs. Wesley Louden, of this place, and Mrs. Sarah Campbell, of Tuscola, at whose home he died.
He was married first to Miss Sarah Piatt, who bore him two children, one a daughter living in Ohio and a son living in Kansas. Sometime after her death he was married (in 1837) to Miss Harriet Crawford who bore him ten children five of whom have preceeded him to the better land. There are now living seven children, twenty-four grandchildren and thirty great-grandchildren.
The later years of life were years of suffering, but he endured the pain with expemplary patience. Towards the close of life many things seemed a blank to him but at the voice of song his mind became clear and the clouds for a time vanished away. Ont the 10th day of Dec., in Tuscola, Ill., at 9 o'clock Father Denning fell asleep as gently as a little child falls asleep in it's mother's arms.
"Servant of God, well done.
Thy glorious warfare's past:
Thy battle's fought, thy victory won,
And thou art crowned at last."
Funeral services were held at the M. E. church in Onarga Tuesday afternoon, Dr. G. R. Palmer delivering an excellent sermon to a large audience."

3. From Denning GenForum (Interet) posted 3/5/1998 by Mary Jane Petersen:
Job had settled in Adams County by winter of 1795/96. I had found the surname of Dening listed as one of the families who held deeds in Mason Co. Kentucky in 1790. There was not much in the way of settlements in Ohio until after the Battle of Fallen Timbers(1795) when the "Indians" were finially defeated. Many people were poised and waiting in Kentucky for the lands in the Northwest territory to be made safe for settlers. Job married a Mary Elenore ? who was born in Penn. before 1794.
Military. 11 July 1797 Job was appointed Captain for Adams Co. of militia command by Col. Winthrop Sargent, (Terr. papers U.S.v.3,p.474) In November of 1797 Job Denning was granted a licence to keep a hotel in Manchester..(page 90 volume II of Thompsons Historical collections) Another reference on page 133 , is written Job Denning also operated a Tavern, same year. From Caldwells Adams co. Atlas on Tiffin TWP. "Another settlement was made in the neighborhood of Killenstown about 1800. Among the settlers was Job Denning.
From deed records late 1700's to 1812...First deed the last name is spelled Demming...Volume 1-2-3, p. 289. 23 October 1802, John Killen and his wife Rachel to Job Demming of Adams Co., for $ 215., in lots 1 ,6, and 9, also 4 out lots of 3 acres each, and half of out-lot 4, all in Killen's town on the waters of brush creek, part of a tract patented to Robert Rankin 28 October 1799.
Job Dinning was among the Associated Judges of the courts of Common pleas who certified in 1820 that the consolidated deed volume 1-2-3- had been accurately copied from the original deed records maintained in three small volumes labled A, B, and C, which were kept under territorial government.
In volume 5, p. 247, 13 March 1806 Trustees of West Union sell to Job Dinning for $13., in-lot #70. Volume 6, p. 264 Job and Mary Dinning were witnesses for a deed of McCutchin to Ellison. Also in Vol.6, p. 330, Job Dinning is again a witness and now a Justice of the Peace. He appears in various deeds in this capacity until at least 1812, when the published deeds abstracts end. In the last of the records a Daniel Dinning is the other witness..This traction in vol. 6,p. 658, Isaac and Leah Womsley to Jonathan Womsley.

Polly was blind and so were two other of their brothers , Albert and Job. Actually both Albert and Job were Deaf and Blind or Deaf and Dumb. I found this in researching them in the 1850-1860 census. I believe Albert went to Wasbash co. Indiana, and I am not sure if Job stayed in Brown Co. Ohio ( next co, over from Adams co.). William Harrison Denning went to Tuscola, Ill. in early 1850's and died there in 1898.

2. From Pyatt Family Forum on GenForum (Internet), posted by Laverne Ingram Piatt:
The Jacob Piatt who was father to Diana who married Thomas Thornburg died in Washington Co PA in 1784. His will was written 26 Aug 1780 and probated on 31 March 1784. The will is on file in the Washington Co PA courthouse indexed, unfortunately, as Jacob Pyatt. Jacob was a resident of Peters Township and owner of a tract of land called Fidelity at the time of his death.
This Jacob is thought to be a fourth generation colonist being a son of Jacob Piatt (II) and Jean Paul, grandson of Jacob Piatt (I) and Mary Hull, and great-grandson of Rene Piatt and Elizabeth Sheffield of New Jersey. It is thought that he was born in the area of the Path Valley of PA where his father is known to have been a licensed Indian trader (PA Archives).
A birthdate for this Jacob is given as 18 Nov 1725. About 1745 he married Elizabeth Dunham(?) who died after 1789. Children of Jacob and Elizabeth Dunham(?) are: Mary who married John Wayt and went to Ohio Co WV; Robert (Rev War soldier) who went to Ohio Co WV; Benjamin who married Mary Phillips, d/o Rev David Phillips, (div 1790, records of Supreme Court of PA) and who may have married Mary Waddell as a second wife and went to Adams Co OH; Jacob who married Nancy and went to Adams Co OH; James who married Nancy Coleman(?) and went to Monroe Co OH; Thomas who married Catherine Bell and went to Richland Co OH, later Grant Co IN; Rebecca; Rachel; Diana who married Thomas Thornburg; Susannah; and Elizabeth.

4. From History of Franklin County, Fannett - 1761 pages 578, 579, and 580(Internet):
The greater part of this township lies in what is known as Path Valley, in olden times called "Tuscarora Path." Originally the township included what is now Metal Township. Here, as in other parts of the county, came settlers prior to the time of the extinguishment of the Indian title to the land. The three valleys--Path, Amberson's and Horse by their beauty and fertility attracted immigrants who, with the consent of the Indians, with whom they maintained the most friendly relations for some time, located and commenced their great life work. But in a short time, so strong was the stream of immigration, the Indians became alarmed for their possessions, and in 1744 they notified the colonial authorities that they objected to have their lands taken by the whites, especially where they were acting in violation of express stipulations formerly entered into. The government called upon the authorities ---the magistrates of Cumberland County--to expel the intruders. In May, 1750, Richard Peters, secretary of the governor, attended by Benjamin Chambers, William Maxwell, William Allison, John Findlay, and other magistrates, went over to Path Valley, where they found the settlers, Abraham Slack, James Blair, Moses Moore, Arthur Dunlop, Alex McCartie, David Lewis, Adam McCartie, Felix Doyle, Reynold Alexander, Samuel Patterson, John Armstrong, John Potts, Andrew Dunlop, Robert Wilson, JACOB PYATT, Wm. Ramage and others, and brought them before the magistrate's court, tried and convicted each, and put them under bonds to remove at once with their families out of the valley, "taking servants and effects" and to appear in Carlisle and answer such charges as might be made against them. Their houses and other improvements were burned, by order of the court. When the land was purchased of the Indians, October 23, 1758, some of these settlers retruned and became permanent residents of the valley.

132 1.From "The Descendants of Andrew Jackson Pittser" by B. W. Thompson, Sr., 1998, pg. 11, 17, 18:
Matthias and Michael Bitzer arrived in Portsmouth on the ship 'Forest' on 10 October 1752 and shortly thereafter gave their oaths to the government at the courthouse in Philadelphia.
From Philadelphia, the Bitzer brothers made the long journey to Lancaster county where they eventually saved enough to purchase land. Michael married Sophia Boshaar there in 1755. Matthias' marriage is not recorded in Lancaster Co., PA and it is believed that he married elsewhere. Michael and Matthias settled and farmed in an area where other German immigrants were already living. In 1765 they became naturalized citizens (from "Naturalizations of Foreign Protestants in the American Colonies" by M. S. Cuiseppi). Sometime after 1765, they decided to move south to Frederick County, VA. The part of Frederick County where they settled eventually became Berkeley County, Virginia.
When the Revolutionary War broke out, they did not join in combat, but helped with non-military aid (food, supplies, etc.). They are named in the book, "West Virginia Revolutionary War Ancestors", by Reddy, as having provided non-military service to the colonial troops.
Michael and Matthias lived out their lives in Berkeley County and all of their children were born there.

In Sutton Cemetery, there are Bisher Children, next to Albert and Angeline. There are no markers and the site is fenced in. In a visit to the graves in Oct of 2003, the stone is legible for Albert and Angeline. But the graves for the children and the fence are gone.

and the other fellow got a wife- miss-taken dreams of bliss

A big sensation comes from Royal Center, in which figures a trio of parties well known in Van Buren township, this county, wherein two suitors for a fair young lady played their hands and the old folks' favorite easily won. The story goes that Fannie A. Bisher, whose home is with her parents about two and a half miles west of Royal Center, had two lovers. One was John Engle of Van Buren, said to be her favorite, and the other, Jas. B. Jester of that locality, the favorite of the girl's parents. Monday Miss Bisher was at home, having returned from near Star City. Engle is said to have driven to the Bisher mansion in his buggy and induced her to enter the vehicle. Then, the story continues, he drove off with her to her Uncle's. When she arrived ther she became alarmed over previous threats that had been made by Bisher and begged to return. To Mr. Engle's offer to return with her she objected, saying that her father would kill both of them if he did. She was then taken back home by her uncle, wohe name is Worden. Her father, James Bisher(*see note) , then went to the capital of Boone and had Engle arrested for abduction, while Engle, who was also there, wanted the old man put under bonds to keep the peace. Both cases were dismissed and Engle pleaded guilty to a charge of assault and battery before Justice Fry and was assessed $5.00 and costs. The trouble ended Tuesday with a marriage licence issued to James B. Jester, who won out in the fight for a girl by probably sitting still and sawing wood. Melville Gill also had a hand in the mix-up as Mr. Engle's friend. Mr. Bisher went to Logansport to get the license and the couple is doubtless ere this safely landed in the state of matrimony. May they have peace hereafter.

*note from Lori, I don't know where the notion that James Bisher is her father came from. I have several sources that state Albert was her father.

I have found nothing in death records in Pulaski Co. for either Albert or Angeline. Nor White Co. Maybe Benton Co. since Fannie lived there?


According to Teresa Bishir Barrier, they lived 2 1/2 mile's West of Royal Center Indiana I
believe that would be Cass Co.They left there at some point and moved to
Oxford,Indiana in Benton Co. After death they returned to Pulaski Co. to
be buried in the Sutton cemetery. There is one more child they called Harry he died at a very
young age 9 or 10 maybe.

Monticello Herald Sep 11, 1884
A Foul Attemp to Poison Isaiah Bishir by Putting Strychine in His Bitters
another chemical analysis and more light thrown upon a mysterious departure

Prof. W. H. Peters, the LaFayette chemist, upon whom White county now depends for its sensational developments, finds in this vicinity a rich field for his professional skill. Aside from the Spense and Switzer anaylses he has lately been engaged in the investigation of another case of suspected poisoning, the particulars of which, so far as can be gathered, as as follows:
Some months ago Mr. Isaiah Bishir, a bachelor farmer, who lives south of town, being in poor health prepared for himself a jug of root bitters of which he partook from time to time as occasion seemed to require. One day soon after imbibing he suffered an attack of illness marked by a twitching of his muscles. He at once attributed it to his medicine, and after recovering from the attack he let the jug severely alone for several days. By and by having concluded that perhaps he was mistaken or that his illness was caused by an overdose, he ventured to take another drink of bitters. It was followed by the same results as before. He was now convinced that somebody had tampered with the jug and putting a number of circumstances together he settled his suspicions upon M.J. Julian, one of his neighbors, with whom he remembered drinking from the jug at a short time before his first attack, and to whom its place of concealment was known. He kept his own counsel and by a little observation was strengthened in his suspicion. Though his attacks of sickness were kept from the neighbors as far as possible, Julianne seemed to have heard of them and made inquiry of Bishir about his condition. He wanted to take the jug and have the bitters analyzed, which Bishir promptly refused, at the same time intimating that he knew that he had been poisoned and that he also knew the guilty party. Soon afterward Julian came to town and in conversation with Dr. Robison, an officer of the A.O.U.W. lodge, expressed his intention to " transfer the certificate of insurance which he held upon the life of Bishir " to some other beneficiary, as he feared that he might be charged on that account with foul play in case of the death of the insured. The subsequent flight of Julian for parts unknown, as hereto for notes it in the HERALD, has given new weight to the above the suspicious circumstances, and a sample of the contents of the jug was lately submitted to chemist Peters for analysis. On Monday he reported the finding of strychnine in the bitters, and the community is now on the alert for further developments.

James Bishir, 84, a native of Monticello, died Feb. 24, at Weiner, Arkansas, where he had resided for 54 years. The burial was made at the Weiner Cemetery.
the deceased was born in January 12, 1860, the son of Jeremiah and Mary(Gillam) Bishir, 3 1/2 miles southwest of Monticello. His father took up a homestead here in 1822, and raised a family of 21 children, 11 boys and 10 girls. Jeremiah Bishir built the large brick house in the year 1838. The brick was made on the farm. At the time of his death in 1875, he owned over 2000 acres in White County.
The Modern News of Harrisburg Arkansas, in reporting Mr. Bishir's death, stated " Jim Bishir as he was known to everyone in Weiner, was noted for his joking, and jovial disposition and eccentric beliefs. He moved to Weiner about 54 years ago, and was always named as one of the pioneers of the community.

I believe the enumerator made an error on the year birth for Mabel and Christina. It is clearly 85 and 87, but then the ages are screwed up. Frederick Stoner died in 1891, so they wouldn't have been born in the 80's.
