  1. Ms. Tapley,
    I wanted to thank you for posting all of this information on this site. Mrs. Mclendon was my
    grandmother. Her son Bill was my father. He
    and my mother Martha Tippens were married in
    October 1967. I was born September 17, 1968 in
    Decatur, GA.
    Sadly, I never had the opportunity to meet
    Bill McLendon. He and my mother divorced sometime back in 1969 or 1970. I found out through this site that he died back in 2005
    As a result of my finding this site, I was
    able to do some digging and research which resulted in my meeting a sister whom I never
    knew I had.
    I have found out bits and pieces about Bill
    McLendon, but would like to know more. I know
    that he graduated from Bass High School in Atlanta in 1964. My mother Martha Tippens (now
    Martha Phillips) graduated from Bass in 1965.
    Currently, I do not have an e-mail account.
    I can however be contacted at the following
    cell phone #: 678-882-5949
