  • Notes 
    • Thought to have lived in Lincoln and Dallas Co. in North Carolina. They appear in Gaston Co., North Carolina in 1850. They were slave owners showing six slaves in the 1850 census.

      Research: The J.H. Mendehall family bible mentions a "John J." who was born 17 March 1823. This could be the first "Jacob" shown below since he is not mentioned in the bible. Heyl genealogy lists their marriage date as 22 Sept 1804.
