Notes

Note
When first married Francis Merit "Frank" Hendrix and his wife, Eliza Armstead, moved west to Texas Territory and homesteaded there. The territory later split off into the state of Oklahoma. Eliza's grandfather, Franklin Armistead, was a soldier i n the War of 1812. He married Hannah Rice of the Rice family in Virginia. It seems very likely that Hannah Rice was a relative of Lucy Rice who married John Ward in Virginia. She could have been a cousin or a niece since the timing was right; an other possible instance of inter-marriage between these two families, Ward and Hendrix.
- William E. Ward

Note
CIVIL WAR

An F. M. Hendrix signed the Oath of Allegiance 3 October 1862 in Audrain County, Missouri. The previous day L. M. Hendrix also signed the Oath in Audrain. It is quite likely these men were the then 27 year old Francis Merit and 21 year old Lawrence Mitchell, sons of William Hendrix. Having signed the oath is usually an indication of Confederate actions or sympathies.
