Hendrix/Hendricks of 19th century Giles/Lawrence counties in TN
I am trying to find out if there is a connection (and surely there must be?) between a William Hendricks/Hendrix born ca 1788 who died between 1840 and 1850 in Lawrence Co. TN. He had at least two children who were born in Kentucky~his son, John, born ca 1813 and Mary, born ca 1814. He had several other children who list their births in TN, most of whom lived in Lawrence Co.
His son, John, moved from Giles Co. TN about 1840 to Benton Co. AR. Also in Giles was a James Hendricks, born in Ky about 1809. The naming pattern of his children coincide with many names found in the grandchildren of Wm. of Lawrence Co.
Appreciate any help on this if someone sees this and the names look familiar to you.
