Carolyn: If you are still researching this line, I have finally had a chance to start looking at it a little.Unfortunately, all I have so far is my aunt's notes and a typed document prepared by Governor William's son William Parker Hendricks which he passed down through the family.Apparently, my Aunt Ida wound up with it.I am going to contact Scott Hendricks to see what he has completed.I am writing a book on my Duke family and I would like to include descendants of Abraham (father of Governor William Hendricks and grandfather of VP Thomas Hendricks).My mother's line descends from the Gov.I need to find out how much research has been completed on this line and see if anyone would like to contribute to the Duke book.
From William P. Hendricks' notes I have the following concerning Gov. William's children:
Governor William Hendricks married Ann Parker Paul on May 19, 1816.They had the following children:
1Sarah Ann b. 1818.She married her first cousin Joseph Hendricks.
2.William b. June 18, 1821 d. Feb. 23, 1822.
3.John Abraham b. Mar. 7, 1823.Killed in in Civil War on his birthday in 1862 in Arkansas.
4.Josiah Grover b. 1825 died in Wisconsin 1900.Married twice.First wife was Maria Potter.Second wife was Ella _______.
5.William Parker Hendricks who prepared most of the genealogy I have.Born in Madison 1829, d. 1897 (1892 according to his tombstone)
6.Paul Hendricks b. 1832 d. 1885.
7.Thomas Hendricks b. 1836 d. 1863 in Civil War.
8.Mary b. 1839 d. 1840.
9.Ellen Hendricks b. 1844 d. 1866.
I noted in state records that William supposedly had 10 children so there may have been one born after William completed most of the genealogy and he never amended it.I don't know.William was a bachelor and his notes would up with my aunt who was born about 1902.
Josiah Hendricks had two wives.His first wife was Maria Potter.They had the following children:
2.Mary McClure (Minnie)
Josiah's second wife was Ella ______.They had the following children:
1.Roy Grover Hendricks
2.Arthur Wylie Hendricks
3.Wayne Parker Hendricks.
Unfortunately, I don't have any more records on Josiah's descendants but I think my mother does.I hope this helps.
