I am attempting to correct a DAR approved application that lists Joseph South's wife as Maria Mahenlenfell. The citation given "Past and Present of Rock Island, Ill." is incorrect as it lists Maria(h)'s maiden name as "Mahenfell".
The journalist obviously combined (and misspelled) her
father's name. I am considering submitting my app to DAR but will not do so until I have proof that gives her maiden name as "Fell". I want to honor her father, Mahlon Fell who gave his life for our Nation in the War of 1812.
Mahlon Fell marched off as an Ensign from Uniontown, Fayette County in the summer of 1812. Maria(h), the daughter of Mahlon Fell and Sarah was born on 10-12-1812.
Please reply if anyone is able to give me a lead.
Thank You !!
