I am looking for decendents of Columbus Mendenhall born in North Carolina, emancipated in 1855 by George C Mendenhall. Mother was Mahala, wife Mary Scott. Sister Miranda had a daughter Sadie (my maternal ancestory) Sadie, born 1870 and married John Brunson, then John C. Valentine. Sadie's children were Paul, Homer, Louise, Esther (my grandmother), John (all listed in 1900 census)
Columbus had several children, Bennizette b. 1879. Clara b. 1890, John S. b. 1892, McKinley b. 1893, Paul b. 1894, Evertt S. b. 1895, and James H b. ?. I know Esther's brother and sister's children, but I am searching for decendents of Columbus and his sisters Caroline, Susan,and Harriet.
