Susan N. McDaniel (no s) second wife of Wesley Powell Pendergraft was my Great Grand Mother. Ella Prisilla Pendergraft daughter of Wesley and Susan was my Grandmother. Ella was born January 16, 1881 and died in 1966. My Mother Gladys Susan (Sparks) Hopper was the Daughter of Elle Priscilla Pendergraft and Albert Jefferson Sparks. Mother was the oldest of nine children. Only three are still living. There are eight known identified ways to spell the name. Wesley Powell's Father Moses Pendergrass/Pendergraft (1793-1850) changed the spelling for his line. Larry Pendergraft says he dosen't know just when or why. You should go to the FTW-OL User Home Page of Mary K. Pendergrass as Janice suggested. You will find it interesting and informative.
