I'm also related to this family. I'm related to a Mary Mendel, who married Stephen Priest. I don't have the information handy at the moment, but I believe Mary's father was Valentine Mendel. She and Stephen had a child who was named Valentine Priest. They were from the Brooke County, WV area, around Wellsburg, WV.
The orginal Valentine Mendel came from Germany on the ship "King of Prussia". He was a Hessian soldier.
Let me know if you want more of the information. I'll look it up for you. Take care. Sue
