William Sherman Wendell

M, b. 17 December 1867, d. 12 April 1928
     William Sherman Wendell was also known as "Billy". He was born on 17 December 1867 at Guernsey Co., OH. He was the son of William James Wendell and Susannah A. Jeffery. William Sherman Wendell married Rosa Marie Bragg, daughter of Thomas Hutchison Bragg and Rachel Ann Cornelius, on 17 April 1896 at Guernsey Co., OH, Ceremony by Rev. A. M. Shepperd. Because she was under the age of consent, Rosa's mother signed the marriage license application.1 William Sherman Wendell lived in June 1900 at Liberty Twp., Guernsey Co., OH,

A Nellie Wendell, age 1, shown as "granddaughter" was living in the household of William Alloway, very near the residence of William and Rosa Wendell, in Liberty Twp., as of the 1900 census (census p.203A). Nellie was the daughter of Dova B. Alloway, unmarried daughter of William and Elizabeth Alloway. A certified copy of Nellie's Guernsey County birth record, signed by her mother, is in the possession of Donald L. Boyd. It shows a pen stroke through the block where the father should have been named. Nellie's father is unproven, but the circumstantial indications suggest strongly that she was an illegitimate daughter of William S. Wendell.

Dova Belle Alloway subsequently married Walter Allender in March, 1902 and in the 1910 census Nellie's age was "adjusted" to indicate a birth year of 1902 or 1903. Nellie Allender married Elihew O'Dowd about 1916, and died in 1971 at Cambridge, Guernsey County, Ohio. A copy of Nellie's Ohio death certificate is in the possession of Donald L. Boyd -- it shows her father as Walter Allender. Ohio Department of Health, Division of Vital Statistics Death Certificate #075262, Dr. W. Thatcher, signed 18 OCT 1971, information provided by her daughter Madelyn Scott.

The William S. Wendell family migrated to Columbiana County, Ohio sometime in the first decade of the 20th century, continuing as tenant farmers.

The same William and Elizabeth Alloway were still living in Liberty Twp. in 1910. They were found in Wheeling Twp. in the 1880 census.

William S. Wendell was described by his children as being extremely likeable, even charming, such that he was easily able to acquire tenant-farmer work, but was subject to losing his money (and perhaps other problems) when under the influence of alcohol, which condition was the subject of a major row with his son Earl at a point in time around 1920, as reported by Earl's daughter Olive Wendell. It seems there was a pattern in William's life of coming home broke and intoxicated, followed nine months later by the birth of another child. In the "counselling" session that happened around 1920, son Earl advised his father that the behavior had to stop, for the sake of the existing children, and in light of the family's serious poverty.2

He lived on 26 April 1910 at Fairfield Twp., Columbiana Co., OH.3 He lived in January 1920 at Jackson Twp., Stark Co., OH.4 He died on 12 April 1928 at Canton, Stark Co., OH, at age 60. Cause of death: Pneumonia. He was buried in April 1928 at Forest Hill Cemetery, Canton, Stark Co., OH, Fairmount West Row 14.
