Practiced medicine in Murfreesboro and he and his brother, James Edwy, were charter members of the Rutherford County Medical Society.

Dr. Robert Wendel saw service, as a surgeon, in the Confederate Army. Official records show that he was appointed surgeon on 30 May 1862 to take rank 25 Nov 1862. He served in hospitals in Dalton, Georgia, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Forsythe, Georgia, and Columbus, Mississippi, in that order. He was serving at Forsythe, Georgia when his wife, Emma, and her children were given safe passage to join him. Colonel James A. Garfield, shortly to become Brigadier General Garfield, arrived in Murfreesboro to serve on the staff of USA General Rosecrans and requested the home of the Wendels on the corner of Spring and Main streets for his headquarters. Emma James Wendel proceeded to Forsythe, Georgia and later to Columbus, Mississippi where her daughter, Roberta Lee, was born. Following the surrender of Lt. General R. Taylor, CSA, to the USA forces, Robert Searcy was paroled, 16 May 1865 to return home to Murfreesboro.



A family legend has it that a Harrison County, Indiana Windell man who was in the Union Army found himself near Murfreesboro and was aware that a Wendel relative was a doctor in the town. He went to meet Dr. Wendel, but Robert could not abide Yankees, and would not engage in any conversation with the Indiana man.

Dr. Robert Searcy Wendel died on 24 June 1892 at age 70. He was buried in June 1892 at Evergreen Cemetery, Murfreesboro, Rutherford Co., TN.

Valentine Wendel

M, b. circa 31 January 1711, d. before 25 October 1792
     Note: Birth & Death dates from "From The Rhine To The Shenandoah" by Daniel W. Bly page 199.

"Pioneers of Old Frederick County, Virginia" by Cecil O'Dell: bottom of page 395:

Valentine Windle (b. 5 November 1711) was deceased by 25 October 1792 when his will (dated 29 December 1791) was proved in Shenandoah County Court. He bequeathed his Psalm Book and 100 acres "whereon he (Valentine) now live" to his son Peter (b. 1753). He willed 100 acres to his son John (b. 1763). He mentioned top page 396 five daughters but only listed two, Barbara and Mary Windle. Valentine appointed Augustine Windle and John Philip Windle to serve as executors.John Windle Jr. and his wife Caty sold his 100-acre legacy and.......

180 & 181 are footnotes (181)-Shenandoah County, Va, Will Book D, p. 250.

Per Fredric Z. Saunders, O'Dell copied the will information from the abstracts of Shenandoah wills, and it is incorrect. The correct date of Valentine's will is 22 March 1770, in Dunmore County. The name Dunmore County was later changed to Shenandoah. It makes a big difference, in that Barbara and Mary were single in 1770 when it was written, but not in 1791 which the published abstract lists.

Valentine Wendel was born circa 31 January 1711 at Framersheim, Palatinate. He was the son of Philip Wendel and Anna Margaretha Thiehl. Valentine Wendel was christened on 1 February 1710/11 at Framersheim, Palatinate; Christening name "Johann Valentin Wendel." He immigrated on 17 August 1732 to Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co. (now), PA; Valentine is presumed to have immigrated with his father and two brothers on the Samuel in 1732 -- although only Augustine's name is clearly shown on the passengers list. He was naturalized on 5 May 1747 at Frederick Co., VA; according to British law, this means he had resided in the colony for at least 7 years.1 He died before 25 October 1792 at Shenandoah Co., VA.
