Dendy Family Genealogy Forum
William Dendy [William Sr. in THE DENDY REGISTER and the Powell books who married Clary Cargill] was born about 1728 (probably in VA) - the son of Elizabeth and William Dendy born about 1800. It is doubtful that William was the one born in Scotland either.
William Dendy born about 1738 VA was the son of Thomas Dendy and Mary Cargill. Apparently, Thomas was the older brother or uncle of William Dendy, Sr.
A few more generations may have to be researched before getting back to Scotland?
