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.
