Was a farmer. According to Jean Evans - he was born at New Garden, NC.
Mordecai and Charity moved from New Garden, NC to Hopewell, VA by certificate
dated 27 Sep 1736. They remained there until 1751 when they moved to Cane
Creek Meeting, Guilford, NC by certificate dated 6 Mar 1751. His will is
recorded in Guilford, NC. Received a photo of the grave marker for Mordecai
and Charity Mendenhall from Leo Rasor and
have put it my files. It notes "Quaker Pioneers of the Piedmont." Mordecai
Mendenhall rendered material aid and supplies for the militia during the
Revolutionary War.

Leo Rasor has supplied me with a lot of documentation regarding Mordecai
Mendenhall, including a copy of his marriage announcement to Charity
Beeson. Witnesses included: Thomas McClun, William Evans, Hattill Varman,
Allice Gibson, Mary Ashton, John Mendenhall Sr, Richard Beeson, Susanna
Mendenhall, Rachel Beeson, among others.


Mordecai moved to Frederick County, VA in Sep 1736 shortly after marrying
Charity. In 1751 they moved to New Garden, NC, then to Deep River and finally
Springfield. He acquired hundreds of acres of land along Deep River. During the
Revolutionary War, Mordecai furnished quarters, food and horses for the
American Army and his home was used as a temporary hospital for the wounded.
