Last week, I wrote about my 6th great grandfather- Joseph Mendenhall (1770-1833) and how he was born in Jamestown, NC. During the 1810 Census, he lived in Deep River, Stokes, North Carolina.
Deep River, North Carolina
Deep River is along the Cape Fear River which is 125 miles long. It is named after the Indian name Sapponah, which means "Deep River".
