Wendell (ca 1820, Essex Co, Ontatrio, Can - 24 May 1879, Gosfield South, Essex Co, Ont, Can) is s/o Theodore Malott (ca 1773, Washington Co, MD - 25 Mar 1836, Essex Co, Ont, Can) and Catherine Weigle(also Wigle) (1782, Little York, PA - ??, Essex Co, Ont, Can).
Here comes the disputed part.Theodore is s/o of Joseph (b ca 1745) and Sarah Malott.Others say he is s/o Peter Malott (b ca 1728).I say Joseph as all of Theodore's brothers named their first son Joseph, not Peter as one would expect in this case.It also mixes Catherine Malott (b ca 1764), who married Simon Girty, and Peter (30 Jan 1765 - 3 Dec 1815, Essex Co, Ont, Can) in with Peter Malott's (b ca 1728) children William (b 5 May 1764) and Hannah (b 2 Aug 1765). You will have to read everything you can find on that and make your own decision.
In either case, I can take the line back further if you need it. Rob M
