FRANCIS HENDRICK
(HENDRIX)

Francis Hendrick (Hendrix), born about 1802, was married on 29 March
1820 in Giles County, Virginia, to Margaret “Peggy” Stewart who was born
about 1802.  Peggy was the daughter of Ralph Stewart and Mary (Clay)
Stewart.  Francis most likely was the son of Daniel and Ann (Keatley)
Hendricks.  Francis and Margaret’s daughter Nellie (Ellen) Hendrix
married John Dickens.



Copy of Marriage Bond


Dennis Dickens, a cousin of mine who is now deceased, told
me that Nellie Hendricks had brothers Henry, Gus, Pete, Remley, and James
K.  The Hendricks, according to Dennis, lived on Hendricks Ridge
at Knob Fork in Wyoming County.  I have located some Raleigh County
information on three of these brothers.   I have found information
on a Remley Hendricks in Wyoming County.  I believe that Remley
is Nellie’s brother.  I have located information on Pete R. Hendrix
in the 1920 Boone County, West Virginia Soundex.   However, Pete’s
age of 65 (year of birth 1855) would make him too young to be Nellie’s brother.  I
am not certain how Pete fits into the family.

I did find one other record for Pete R. Hendricks.  He
furnished the information for the marriage license of Lorenze Dow Massey
and Rachel Elizabeth Williams on 1 May 1880.
