Jesse A. Hendershott is the son of my great-granduncle, George W. Hendershott who died in McMinnville, Yamhill Co. Oregon.There was a large obit on him, as he was quite prominent.So coverage of his death on September 10, 1921 might have been mentioned in Jesse's locale as well.When Jesse died, this notice below was in the local newspaper where his sister, Mabel P. (Hendershott) Garrison lived.Their brother, Clarence Elgin Hendershott also survived Jesse.
The Telephone Register, McMinnville, Oregon, Thursday, March 22, 1945 - Page 10 Brockwood Hill Woman Notified Brother Dies
BROCKWOOD HILL, Mar 22 --- Mabel Garrison received word Sunday of the death of her brother, J.A. Hendershot in Salem.He will be buried in the family lot at Slayton, Ore.
I found these death records and since Jesse's wife is listed as Marie on the 1930 census, I feel this death listing is her, but really need their obits for confirmation.Plus there's a question as to who Jesse's mother was, which I hope his obit might clarify.I also think that Marie may have been going by her middle name, as I have Cora M. Wiles in my files as Jesse's wife's name.
The other thing I hope the obit will clear up is Jesse's birth date and location, since I have different years & locations from 3 sources.So it's probably January of either 1872 or 1873.On the 1880 Kansas census his birth location is given as Michigan, but in 1920 & 1930 it's given as Michigan.The family lived in all three states before moving to Oregon.
