Brick Wall: Duranda Kendall

+2 votes
158 views
Durenda/Duranda/Durandy is Kendall-2860

She married George W. Pulliam in Kentucky.
They had several children, one of which was was my 3GGrandpa Robert Jennings Pulliam.

I have been trying to figure out who this woman is for years. I have seen her in the census with George and then without him as she is listed as married and the children are listed but George is nowhere to be found.

She was born in Kentucky to my knowledge. Her birth date is between 1812-1816. Unsure of birth place, but it may have been Gallatin, Woodford, Carroll, Henry, or Franklin County, Kentucky. I have searched records in these counties and I can't tie her to anyone.  I located families in Gallatin County census forms with the name Kendoll. I wonder if the name is misspelled. I don't know if anyone is researching this area of Kentucky or this family, but if anyone has any ideas to break my brick wall please let me know. Thank you in advance

I don't know how or why the red flag is here. Maybe someone can take it down as there does not seem to be anything to take issue with in the question.
There was a Jeremiah Kendall who died in 1857 in Franklin County, Kentucky.  I'm not sure if he has any probate records, but you may see if she is listed in his estate.

Courtney ~

I realize this may be a long shot.  But I am very into naming patterns.  I found a Kendall family living in Grant, Kentucky, 1870.  Five of their children share the same given names as Durenda's children.  And both have a daughter called Nannie Elizabeth.  I thought there's a chance that Andrew J. (for Jackson, I think) Kendall could be Durenda's brother.  Perhaps you can find some connection between the family's.
