EXTENSIVE WORK HAS been done on the Kendrick-Wulfjen-Harmon-Cumming family genealogies. While much of the early research on the immediate family was conducted by Eula Wulfjen Kendrick in the 1930s and 1940s, additional work has been done by Trail End staff and more recent Kendrick family members. Here is a brief look at several generations of each family. For more information, contact Trail End.
