The information on Philip WENDEL is from the German researcher Hermann Scholl, who was hired in 1981 by Mrs. Cleta SMITH of Silver Spring, MD to research the parish records for WENDEL. A copy of his report to her was placed with the parish register, as it was later microfilmed along with the parish register, for LDS records. Philip Wendel's name and information is apparently taken from tax records. Philip Wendel was born circa 1620 at Framersheim, Palatinate. He married Anna (?) in 1644. Philip Wendel died after 1670 at Framersheim, Palatinate.
