There are findagrave.com entries for her at two cemeteries in Tennessee. I don't know if either is right:
Lydia Morgan Mendenhall was born in January 1764 to Moses Mendenhall and Sarah Howell Mendenhall, in Bucks county, Pennsylvania. The family moved to Guilford County, NC in about 1778.
Lydia married to Issac Franklin Hammer in 1784, at Guilford Courthouse, Guilford County, North Carolina. They lived there until about 1793, when the family moved to New Market, Jefferson Co, TN, where they became members of the Lost Creek MM.
