( p.1 )
To the honourable the Judges of the High Court of Chancery
Humbly complaining shew unto your Honours your Orators Christopher
Windle and Abraham Smith, that they are in possession of a tract of
Land on the North Mountain being part of it contained in a survey
containing four thousand six hundred acres made on the said
mountain for Joist Hite & Co. and returned as one of the twenty-seven
surveys by Thomas Marshall and others in a suit in Chan
and other Complts against Fairfax and other defts -- Your Orators
further shew that they claim this Land under your Orator Christopher
and who about the year 1743 purchased from Joist Hite four hundred
acres part of the said Tract of 4600 acres for which your Orator
Christopher was to pay him three pound a hundred the greater
part of the price of which Land your Orator Christopher did
actually pay him as will more fully appear by the said Hites
receipt bearing date the 19th day of October 1743 hereto annexed
to which your Orators refer; which receipt is witnessed by John
Hite one of the Complainants. Your Orator further sheweth that in
consequence of the purchase aforesaid from the said Joist Hite your orator
Christopher was put into possession of the Land on which your Orators --
Christopher, John and Abraham live although your Orator Christopher
expressly charges that he never received his quantity of four hundred
acres to which he was entitled by his said Contract, and your Orator
Christopher admits that your Orators John and Abraham have a right
under him to the parts that each of them hold of the said Land.
Your Orators further shew that being possessed of only a part of the
Land which your Orator Christopher had thus bought from the said Joist
Hite and the said Hite and others Complts in the said suit which they
pray may be made deft to this their Bill, well knowing these
things they had hoped to remain undisturbed in their possession
thereof -- But now so it is may it please your Honours that the said
deft combining and confederating together have served your Orators
with a copy of the Decree made in the said suit and threaten to

(p.2)
turn them out of their possession. All which Actings and doings of the said
defts and their confederates are contrary to equity -- In tender consideration
whereof and for as much as your Orators are remediless except in this
Honourable Court. To the end therefore that the said defts particularly John
and Isaac may upon their Corporal oath true and distinct Answer
make to all and singular the premises as fully as if the same were
herein again repeated and interrogated to be answered unto, more
particularly that they may say whether they do not know or believe that
your Orator Christopher did make such contract with their father Joist
Hite as is set forth above and if not that contract what other and whether the
receipt hereto annexed is not ther father's writing and that the said
John Hite may say whether he was not a witness thereto, and whether
the money mentioned therein was not paid as the consideration for the
Land now in your Orator's possession, and if not for that Land for what
other Land? And that by a decree of this Honourable Court your Orators
may be quieted in their possession of the said Land, have their costs in this
expended, and such other and further relief as may be agreeable
in equity etc. May it please your Honours to grant to your Orators a writ
of Subpoena etc. and your Orators shall pray etc. etc.

Believe that some part of this land has been sold,
but how much -- to whom -- or whether the purchase
money has been paid they know not. Refer to W.4.

( in another different hand )
John Hite believes that Christopher Windle the elder purchased some part
of the 4600 acre Tract in the Bill mentioned, and that he paid some
money on account thereof, but does not know the quantity of
the Land purchased or the amount of the money paid; that he may
have witnessed a receipt in 1743, but does not recollect it, nor
does he remember to have seen the receipt said to be annexed (end of p.2)

(p.3)
to the Bill; he does not know what quantity of Land the
said Christopher purchased, nor whether the Land in possession
of the Complainants is the same, nor does he know any thing
respecting the Title of the Complainants John and Abraham therefor.
He believes that the agreed price of the Land purchased by Christopher
Windle of the said Joist Hite has never been fully paid, because a
son of the said Christopher lately told him so -- and offered to pay him
the balance but did not mention the sum.

( Document entitled "N. Mountain 4600 Acres" )

Christopher Windle and Hiram Smith agst Hites and others. Chy.
The Bill states that they are in possession of part of the
Survey -- and that about the year 1743 Christopher Windle purchased of
Jost Hite 400 at £3 a hundred, the greater part of which was paid as
fo. Jost Hites rec. for £8.3.8 Cur. money, that he never got his full quantity of
400 acres.
The Defts answer, they believe Philip Windle did purchase
part of this survey, but how much or whether any part of the purchase money
was ever paid they know not, or whether the Land he purchased if he did purchase
is the same in the possession of the Compts, or whether it is in the possession of either
of the other Windles (the answer to Whose bills they refer) nor the price stipulated, or
and part has been paid -- that a son of s. Christopher offer'd to make a payment
to John Hite.

      Christopher Windle has a pro. Deed -- and now claims the Land under a
      purchase made by himself of Jost Hite so late as the year 1743 when the
      Rec. for £8.3.8 C.M. is dated . as Comm. books 1770 and also to support his
      claim under Hite produces as witnesses

Augustine Windle who says that his father Philip Windle purchased for Christopher
Interested          Windle at £3.00 a hundred and the money was to be paid when the deeds
               were made -- (and he claims land in this survey)

Valentine Windle says his father purchased of Jost Hite for Chr. Windle in 1737. This
Interested          deposition is copied from Christopher Windle's deposition in Valentine Windle's
               suit.


     Christopher Windle is a Witness for Augustine Windle and
     Valentine Windle who claim Land in this Survey --


It is supposed that Philip Windle did purchase some Land for his three
sons Christopher Winde, and Valentine Windle and Augustine Windle, and the Defts.
are willing they may have as much as is paid for ... the receipt which Christopher
now seems to want to support his claim, was certainly for his father ... no Land
was sold so late as 1743 ... some bonds have been given since, but such bonds were for
Land sold before 1743.

Val. Windle contradicts the statement in the bill.



( Decision of Chancery Court )

Virginia to Wit At High Court of Chancery held in Richmond Aug. 5th, 1790.
In the case of Christopher Windall, John Windall, and Abraham Smith in
possession of part of the four thousand and six hundred acres of Land called the
North Mountain tract, which part is stated to have been sold by Joist
Hite to Christopher Windall, under whom the other two possessions claim,
the sale by Joist Hite to Christopher Windall of the land whereon he
dwelled in the year one thousand seven hundred and forty-three, and
which was part of this North Mountain tract, being proven by the receipt
dated the nineteenth day of October in that year among the exhibits, and
the land to which he was entitled by the contract, having been granted
with other land to him by the lord proprietor, as appeareth by the report
of the commissioners, in the year one thousand seven hundred and
seventy, the Court is of Opinion that the possessors fall within the first
of the reservations, contained in the decree of the eighth of May in
the year one thousand seven hundred and eighty-six, be not carried into
execution as to so much, but that the possessors be quieted, and that the
plaintiffs in the principal Case, do pay unto them the Costs expended
by them on this Occasion, unless upon a survey, they shall be discovered
to hold more the land within the survey than the quantity to which this
decision affirmeth their title, in which Case the question as to Costs is
left open.

From "Ancestry and Descendants of the Nassau-Siegen Immigrants to Virginia 1714 - 1750", page 77:

"Christopher Windle, Jr., third son of Christopher Windle and Catherine Brumback, was deeded land in 1775 by his father, which he sold in 1782 to his brother-in-law, John Huffman, as mentioned previously. He appears as a tithable in Shenandoah Co. only in 1782, and seems to have moved to Frederick Co., where he appears as head of a family with 1 tithable in 1787, 1789 and 1792 (in the two latter years as Christopher "Wingle", not Windle). His wife was named Susannah, and they seem to have had an unhappy marriage. On April 19, 1793 Christopher Windle and Susannah Windle of Frederick Co. entered into an agreement to separate; Susannah was to maintain their children, and for this purpose Christopher Windle transferred to Michael and Thomas Deaderick a bond from David Deaderick, also household goods, etc. (Frederick Co. Superior Court Deeds, No. 2, p. 20). One would judge from the above record that Susannah was born a Deaderick. Christopher himself seems to have moved back to Shenandoah Co., where he appears in the tithables of 1793 as "Christopher Windle (Sly Creek) 1 tithable." He is still shown in Shenandoah Co. in 1794 and 1795, but disappears after 1795."

Juliet Ann Deaderick Wendel, his wife, was born 4-8-1787, in Winchester, VA, the daughter of David Wendel, Sr. and Susanna Deaderick, his wife, Susanna Deaderick, the daughter of David Deaderick I and his wife, Rosanah Boucher, was also born in Winchester, Frederick Co, VA. David Diedrick, Sr. of Wurtemburg, Germany, emigrated to the US before 1750, and was among the German Pennsylvanians who settled Winchester, VA. Juliet Ann Deaderick Wendel's paternal grandfather was Samuel Wendel of Dort, Holland. David Wendel, her father, was a merchant of Murfreesboro, TN. Juliet, Mrs. Stephen Cantrell, Jr., was a niece of George M. Deaderick and a cousin of Judge David Deaderick, who was Chief Justice of TN. She died at Nashville, TN in 1840, at the age of 52. During the latter years of his life, Stephen Cantrell, Jr. resided near Pine Bluff, AR."

David Wendel

M, b. 14 January 1785, d. 8 October 1840
     Note: According to a short Memoir written by David Wendel, at the request of his son, he began his career on his own account as assistant in a store at Cheeks Cross Roads, near Morristown, in the year 1801. The owner of the store was Major W. Conway. David Wendel’s uncle, David Deadrick was a partner. After several years David Wendel stated that the business fell into his hands and he continued to run the store until his marriage in 1806. His bride was Sarah Hale Neilson, daughter of one of the early settlers in upper East Tennessee. Her grandfather, Hugh Neilson, had migrated from Glasgow, Scotland and settled in the county of Washington.
Four of the couple's children were born at Cheeks Cross Roads; Susan Juliet, John Franklin, Matilda Caroline and David Deaderick Wendel. After moving to Murfreesboro, David and Sarah Wendel added; James Edwy, Thomas Neilson, William Haney, Sarah Jane, Robert Searcy, Samuel Pitt, Benjamin Franklin, and Margaretta Deaderick Wendel to their family. This large family was to live and take an active part in the affairs of the city.
David Wendel expanded, what was originally a two room log cabin, into a large home for his family that was located on the west side of Spring Street midway between Main and College Streets. The original two rooms were built of hewn red cedar logs and the house was added to in subsequent years. When the house was razed in 1915, the cedar logs were purchased and reused to build another home in Murfreesboro. During the period of time Murfreesboro was capital of Tennessee, the legislature held some of its meetings in what later became the parlor of this house.
David Wendel’s obituary published in the Murfreesboro newspaper shortly after his death stated that David Wendel was a model of industry, method neatness, and punctuality, and a man of sound, higly cultivated judgment, and his honesty was above all suspicion. In the discharge of every duty, public and private, he was strictly conscientious, and was satisfied with the respect which this won, without seeking to form intimate friendships. David Wendel had accumulated an elegant library, and his leisure hours, surrounded by his family, were passed among his books. He endeavored from the earliest possible period, and unremittingly, to inspire his children with his own great love for reading.
David and Sarah Neilson Wendel are buried in the family plot in Evergreen Cemetery. This cemetery, founded before the Civil War, is the resting place of many notables of Murfreesboro; Carter Harrison, General Joseph B. Palmer, Congressman Charles Ready, Jr. Doctor J. B. Murfrees and Mary Noilles Murfree.

From The Story of Murfreesboro, by C. C. Henderson) Page 44: D. Wendell was a stationer in Murfreesboro. A resident of the county and prominent in business and social life. Page 46: David Wendel appointed to committee as comissioner to receive the taxes collected and to superintend the building of the courthouse. (17 Aug 1822) Page 50: At conclusion of General Assembly of 1823, David Wendell supplied more stationery and sundries than for former sessions, having been allowed the sum of $707. Page 73: David Wendel served as postmaster for 22 years from 1817-1839. Page 99: Annual elections to be held on the 1st Mon. in Jan, 1818, and each year thereafter. The first election Joshua Haskell was elected Mayor. Mayor Haskell resigned the following July and David Wendel was eleted at the annual election, Jan., 1819, but resigned the following April.

From "A History of Rutherford County" by Carlton C. Sims, Editor; Copyright, 1947, by Carlton C. Sims) Page 40: A few changes worthy of mention was made in the government of the city of Murfreesboro between 1815 and 1860. In 1817, Murfreesboro was formerly incorporated. The Mayor and Alderman type of government was set up. The Aldermen were elected by popular vote and they, in turn, chose a Mayor. The first town officers were: Aldermen - Burrell Gannawayh, Nicholas Tilford, Thomas G. Watkins, William Barfield, Charles Niles and George A. Sublett. Burrell Gannaway was treasurer; William Ledbetter, recorder; and Benjamin Blankenship, town constable. Joshua Haskell was the first Mayor. He resigned before the end of the year, and was succeeded by David Wendel. Although the Charter was amended by the legislature from time to time; no important changes were made until after the Civil War, while the basic structure was not changed till the manager plan was adopted in 1921. It is interesting to note that the budget for Murfreesboro during the 1820's was between three hundred and four hundred dollars per year. In 1822, while Murfreesboro was the Capitol of the state, the Courthouse burned. The legislature was forced to meet in the Presbyterian Church. A commission consisting of David Wendel, John S. Jetton, Samuel P. Black, Benjamin McCollough, and John Hoover was appointed by the legislature for the purpose of supervising the erection of a new courthouse. The Commissioners were authorized to borrow six thousand dollars from the branch of the Nashville Bank at Murfreesboro. The building erected, at this time, was used until 1859, when the present structure was completed. page 63: Evergreen Cemetery in Murfreesboro, founded before the War Between the States, is also the resting place for many notables including: Carter Harrison, General Joseph B. Palmer, Congressman Charles Ready, Jr., David Wendell, Doctor J. B. Murfrees and Mary Noilles Murfree.
