THOMAS MENDENHALL, SR. and MARY ANN SINEX 10 Mar 1806 – 7 Sep 1888 16 Sep 1812 – 27 Apr 1848 (Written in 1950 by Nettie Pearl Mendenhall Handy, a granddaughter)

Thomas Mendenhall, Sr., was the son of Abraham Mendenhall (b. March 28, 1766 at Mill Creek, New Castle, Delaware; m. January 14, 1798, New Castle, Delaware; d. May 17, 1833, New Castle, Delaware) and Elizabeth Wells (b. December 15, 1778, Mill Creek, New Castle, Delaware; d. August 20, 1863). There were eleven children born to Abraham and Elizabeth, eight boys and three girls. His grandfather was Aaron Mendenhall, Jr. (b. May 13, 1729 at East Caln, Chester, Pennsylvania; m. November 11, 1756 at Bradford, Chester, Pennsylvania; d. March 10, 1813) and his grandmother was Mary Woodward (b. June 11, 1735 at West Bradford, Chester, Pennsylvania; d. 11 Nov 1756, MillCreek, New Castle, Delaware). To them were born six children—four boys and two girls. His great-grandfather was Aaron Mendenhall, Sr. (born September 20, 1690 at concord, Chester, Pennsylvania; died April 30, 1765) and his great-grandmother was Rose Pierson (born June 16, 1693 at Concord, Chester, Pennsylvania; died June 29, 1771). To this couple was born eight children, five boys and three girls. His great-great-grandfather was John Mendenhall who came to America with William Penn about 1682, settling in Penn. He came from Mindenhall in Wiltshire, England. He died before 1708 in Pennsylvania. He and his wife (Elizabeth Maris, born April 3, 1665 at Inksborough, Worchester, England) had three children—all boys. Thomas Mendenhall, Sr., was born March 10, 1806 at North Carson, Delaware. He married Mary Ann Sinex December 5, 1833. She was born September 16, 1812 at Mill Creek, New Castle, Delaware to John Sinex (b. 3 Sep 1789 at Christiana, New Castle, Delaware; m. 1809, Christiana, New Castle, Delaware; d. May 1874) and Susanna Stidham (b. 3 Jun 1792 at Christiana, New Castle, Delaware; d. 6 Jul 1867). To Thomas and Mary were born the following children: SusannahSeptember 20, 1834Wilmington, New Castle, Delaware George MadisonSeptember 29, 1836Wilmington, New Castle, Delaware Louis HenrySeptember 26, 1838Wilmington, New Castle, Delaware EdmundSeptember 29, 1841Wilmington, New Castle, Delaware Died July 22, 1845 Thomas Jr.February 18, 1844North Carson, Delaware ElizabethFebruary, 1847Nauvoo, Hancock, Illinois Died April, 1847

In 1843 Thomas joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His wife did not join until January 1846. After joining the Church he had a desire to go west and join the Saints, so he came to Nauvoo. He had the privilege of seeing the Nauvoo Temple finished. When the Saints were forced to leave their homes in Nauvoo, Mary Ann was expecting her sixth child. The baby was born in February of 1847 and died two months later. After they arrived at Council Bluffs, Iowa, Mary Ann became ill and died April 27, 1848. She was wrapped in a blanket and placed in an old hollow tree for a casket. This left Thomas with four children to care for alone. In March 1850 he married Catherin Barton (born November 9, 1805 at North Umberland, Pennsylvania). She was sealed to him October 26, 1861. She died in 1877. He came to Utah with his family September 15, 1852 in the David Woods Company and settled in Spanish Fork. Thomas made three trips back across the plains to bring immigrants to Salt Lake. In the spring of 1860, he, with his family, was called to settle Franklin, Idaho. At the time it was thought to belong to Utah but proved to be Idaho. So it was the first permanent white settlement of Idaho. They endured all the hard ships and privations of pioneer life. In early 1870 he married Margaretta Nielsen and was sealed to him March 7, 1870. She was born May 30, 1819 at Colerup, Denmark. He was active in the Church and donated freely to help build the Church and community. He was a farmer and trader, traveling between Franklin and Salt Lake City. He would buy the people's produce, take it to Salt Lake City and sell it, then bring merchandise back and sell it. He was trustworthy, honest, dependable and fearless, his word being as good as his bond. He was very good to the poor and needy. It is said of him when he went to the canyon for wood the men would want him to brake his wagon, but he would say, "It's a poor team that can't outrun a wagon." He was a good teamster. He was very industrious and a hard worker and believed in his family working too. The last few years of his life he made his home with his sons George and Thomas. He died at George's home September 7, 1888, at the age of 88, at Dayton, Idaho. He was buried on George's farm in their burial lot.
