Note:


The biological father of Mariah Ridgway's son James Augustine Wendell was in all likelihood John, son of William D. and Effie (DeLong) Wendell, born 1833 in Ohio, died 1898 at Logan County, Illinois. Here are the documented facts available today:

- Mariah Ridgway married a John "Windall" on 21 MAR 1861 in Pike County, Ohio, per marriage record archives in the Pike County Probate Court.

- Mariah gave birth to James Augustine "Jay Gus" Wendell in July, 1861, per the 1900 census. His death certificate shows his age as 76 years, as of 39 NOV 1937.

- Mariah remarried, using her maiden name, to Henry Clay Cave on 7 APR 1864 in Ross County, Ohio, per the Ross County Intention to Marry and marriage record.

- Mariah and Henry Cave were living in Monticello Twp., Jones County, Iowa as of the 1870 census, whereas James A. Wendell was living with her parents in Pike County, Ohio. By the 1880 census, "Gus" had relocated to be very close to his mother's residence and is found listed as "Gust", a farm laborer in a farming family one township northwest of Monticello Twp., in Milo Twp., Delaware County, Iowa. The Mariah and Henry Cave family had relocated within the year prior to the 1880 census to Plum Creek Twp., Boone County, Nebraska as evidenced by the birth location of their youngest son, age 1, of Iowa.

- A Y-DNA 37-marker test of a male line Wendell descendant of Philip and Barbara (Swartz) Wendell of Guernsey County, Ohio (the parents of Daniel Wendell whose family lived in Huntington Twp. of Ross County and of William D. Wendell whose son John Wendell and a grandson John Wendell lived in Seal Twp. of Pike County in 1860), matched with high confidence the Y-DNA of a great-grandson of James Augustine "Gus" Wendell.
DLB 2017.

He was born in July 1861 at Pebble Twp. (probably), Pike Co., OH, Both parents born Ohio, per 1900 census info.2,1 He was the son of John Wendell and Mariah Elizabeth Ridgway. James Augustine Wendell lived in July 1870 at Pebble Twp., Pike Co., OH; with the George and Hannah Ridgway family, listed as "Jane A. Windall", male.2 He lived on 8 June 1880 at Milo Twp., Delaware Co., IA; census p.475C, farm laborer with the Andrew McFern family. He married Martha Elizabeth Hughes, daughter of Henry Chester Hughes and Mary Ann Hall, on 10 June 1891 at Catahoula Par., LA. Occupation: Jay G. Wendell, a deck hand at New Orleans, was granted a mate's license on 7 FEB 1892. Per online research notes of Jerri Strombeck, 25 OCT 2010:

http://www.genealogy.com/forum/regional/states/topics/la/17535/.

James Augustine Wendell lived in 1900 at Shields Twp., Holt Co., NE. He lived in April 1910 at Harris Co., TX; Justice Precinct 4, District 115, sheet 3A. He lived in April 1930 at New Orleans, Orleans Parish, LA; District 11, sheet 9A, living with daughter Ruth Champer. Jay was listed as "WD", but Martha Wendell was living with their son George in Ward 2, Caddo Parish, also listed as "WD". Apparently they were separated at that time. Family tradition says George was mentally handicapped and needed to be under the care of a parent, and that may have been relevant to the separate residences of his parents in 1930, in addition to the absence of Ruth's husband. DLB 2016.

He died on 29 November 1937 at Shreveport, Caddo Parish, LA, at age 76 Louisiana Death Certificate #14227.

Jul 1861, d. 29 Nov 1937; This relationship is based on Y-DNA testing and a match between a male Wendell, born 1954, a descendant of the Daniel Wendell/Rebecca Swartz family of Guernsey and Ross Counties, Ohio, and a living great-grandson of James Augustine "Jay Guss" Wendell, as well as a 21 MAR 1861 marriage record of Mariah Ridgway to a John "Windall". John, born 1833, son of William D. Wendell and Effie DeLong, was the only unmarried John Wendell listed in the 1860 censuses of Pike and Ross Counties, Ohio. The circumstances of the 1861 marriage and the following separation are unknown (a divorce record was searched for and not found), but the known facts indicate that it was John Wendell (1833 - 1898) who was the father of Jay Guss Wendell and Mariah Ridgway's first husband.
