The profile picture is of the Aldbourne Parish Church in Wiltshire, England, where Thomas, III & Joane (Strode) Mendenhall were married.

The Strode lineage is traced back to Sir John de Strode, Knight, the 8th generation from Sir Warinus de la Strode, Lord of Strode in Dorsetshire in the 17th year of the reign of Henry III. This line descends to William Strode of Shepton Mallet who married Joanne Barnard who had 6 sons and three daughters. One of the daughters was named Joanna. It is thought that Joanna may be Joan, here wife of Thomas Mendenhall [The Mendenhalls : A Genealogy, p. 2].

Since no record has been found of her coming to America, it is assumed that she died in Wiltshire, England.
