Beaver Township history, showing that Daniel and Philip Wendell were involved in the original township organization.
Daniel Wendell was a younger brother of my ancestor Philip Wendell. These two brothers consistently spelled their surname "Wendell", unlike most other Wendel descendants, who mostly use "Windle" or "Windell". Daniel's house at Batesville was the first brick home built there. The log "shed" was the original cabin where the family lived while the brick house was built.
