Stephen Mendenhall was born in Frederick Co., VA, as were several of his siblings, before the family emigrated to Guilford Co., NC in 1751, when he was 7 years old.
Obviously Stephen Mendenhall left NC and emigrated in OHIO when he was a young man, as did a large number of Mendenhalls who eventually ended up in Ohio. Before emigrating to OH, however, he married Elizabeth Rich (b. Apr. 24, 1751 in Randolph Co., NC)on Oct. 18, 1769 in New Garden MM, Guilford Co., NC.
Stephen and Elizabeth Mendenhall had 15 children (most of the children, at least 10, were born in NC between 1770 and 1783; after 1783 the children apparently were born in Ohio): Damascus, Jane, John, Maris, Nathan, Isaac, Sarah, Rachael, Hannah, Elizabeth, Stephen, Eli, Mordecai, Thomas, and James Rich Mendenhall b. 1795.
