BIOGRAPHY

Page 1615, "History of Northeast Missouri", Edited by Walter Williams, 1911

DR WHITLEY GRAY HENDRIX has practiced medicine in Ralls county for more than forty years and has passed almost his whole professional life in New London. He was born in Callaway county, Missouri, Jan. 1, 1843, on Sunday,--the first day of the week, month and year, and is the son of William and Judith ‎(BOURN)‎ HENDRIX. The father was born in Oldham county, Kentucky, in 1805, married there in 1830 and seven years later came to Callaway county, Missouri. He moved into the forest, built a house of logs, cleared up a space in the midst of the wilderness and began to till the soil with all the energy and determination born of a strong will to make a home for his family where independence might be their lot. He remained there until 1849, then removed to Audrain county, and in 1856 he was elected sheriff and collector of the county. He served out his term and in so doing proved himself an able and efficient officer and he died in 1873 on the 16th of December. He was the son of Rudy HENDRIX, of German antecedents, and a native North Carolinan, who came into Kentucky during the early years of her statehood and died in Oldham county, that state. The mother of Dr. HENDRIX was born in Franklin county, Kentucky, and her people likewise were from Virginia. She was born on June 14, 1814. They became the parents of ten children as follows: James D., of Nevada, Missouri; Richard, deceased; Franklin of Canon City, Texas; Thomas of Audrain county, Missouri; Lawrence M., deceased; Dr. Whitley G.; Ellen, who married David M. WARD and resides in Kansas City; Mary, the wife of Columbus WISDOM, of Marshall, Missouri; Affie, who died single, and Miss Lizzie of Mexico, Missouri.

Dr. HENDRIX was born in the log cabin his parents built upon their arrival in Callaway county, Missouri. Conditions of agriculture during his boyhood were sufficiently unfavorable to inspire him a desire for a life other than that of the farm, and he early turned his attention toward the medical profession as an outlet for his energies and ambitions. Teaching offered the best opportunity to continue his private studies and to give him a living at the same time, and he taught his first school in the Grant community of Audrain county before the Civil war troubles affected or reached him. When the authority of the government called upon him to declare his loyalty to the Union by taking what was known as the "test oath", he declined and saved himself the ignominy of imprisonment by fleeing the state. He located at Pike county, Illinois, while the troubles of the war time were adjusting themselves at home and there engaged in teaching school. About the close of the war period he returned to Missouri and resumed his work in the school room near Louisiana on Noix creek. He continued to teach in Audrain county and to do the preliminary work of his medical course as well. In the winter of 1866-67 he attended the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Keokuk, Iowa, and was granted a certificate to practice medicine before his graduation. He conducted his first practice with an established physician in Boone county and in 1868 located at St. Vrains Mills in Ralls county.

His beginning at this time was about as humble as it might well be imagined, his possessions being thus enumerated: Young wife, pill pockets, pony, saddle and bridle, primitive furnishings in a frontier house and lest than a dollar in change in his pockets. In the winter of 1869 he entered upon the final work on his professional preparation at Keokuk and was graduated in 1870. He reached Quincy enroute to join his wife, with ready cash limited to a twenty-five cent piece,-- a circumstance which threatened a serious menace to his homeward progress. He decided to pledge his silver watch,--a present to him, but when he approached the silversmith for the purpose the latter called an officer, thinking he had found a thief. After answering inumerable questions put by the officer, the young doctor produced his diploma and satisfied his questioners that his case was genuine. Refusing then to part with the watch he searched the city for some possible acquaintance who would aid him, and meeting with success in that quest, he finished his trip home and resumed his professional work.

In 1875 Dr. HENDRIX moved to Madisonville and entered into practice with Dr. M. L. CATRON, and later he took a course of lectures in Rush Medical College in Chicago. He located in New London in 1877 and has since been active in good work in this community.

During his long career in medicine the doctor's office has been open to many young men who have entered into the same profession. Those who went out of his office and subsequently pursued courses in medicine were: Dr. W. W. RODMAN, of Pierce City, Missouri; Dr. J. P. NEELY, of New London, Missouri; Dr. J. F. HENDRIX, of Howell county, Missouri; Dr. J. O. PHELAN, of Oklahoma City; Dr. John PHELAN, of Marshall, Missouri; and his own son, Dr. John W. HENDRIX, now engaged in the drug business in New London.

In November, 1888, Dr. HENDRIX married Miss Mollie BOAZ, a daughter of David BOAZ, a Virginia man and a farmer, whos wife was Miss Polly BROWN. The other children of Mr. and Mrs. BOAZ were Robert, of Callaway county, Missouri; John, of Cole county, Missouri; Thomas, deceased; Agnes, also deceased; Mrs. HENDRIX, born in 1848; Hattie, the widow of Mr. ARMSTRONG; Nannie died as the wife of Samuel MCELROY.

Dr. and Mrs. HENDRIX have three children. Logie L. is the wife of Charles WEAVER, a farmer near New London; they have two sons, Harry WEAVER, a young attorney at the county seat, and Lloyd now attending high school; Rosie, the wife of Dr. F. E. WALTERS, of Bowling Green; Dr. John W., the only son of Dr. and Mrs. HENDRIX, married Miss Maud LAIR, and they have a daughter, Madeline.

Dr. HENDRIX, the elder, entered the Christian church when a youth of eighteen years at Mexico, Missouri, and notwithstanding the growing tendency of physicians and surgeons towards the ranks of doubters, he has continued a follower in the faith, and maintained his household of Christian home. Fraternally the doctor is a Master Mason and he is a Democrat in his political opinions.

Dr. HENDRIX occupies a high place in the popular confidence and esteem of all who come within the circle of his acquaintance, and he is known and loved as a man of generous heart and high ideals. He has been a successful man in his profession from every view point, and is known to be one of the financially independent men of the city, his holdings of valuable lands in Missouri and Texas being large and his other interests in a property way being of an extensive nature.
Residence Death certificate states length at residence at time of death as 60 years.
