- Mentioned in biographical sketch of son Harry G. Hendricks, Volume I, pp. 350-351. "In mentioning his parents, H. G. and Eliza Anne (Everts) Hendricks, one speaks of two of the early and very prominent families of Texas. His father, a native of Kentucky, emigrating from there to Missouri, came to Texas in 1S44, while Texas was still a republic under the Lone Star flag. He located at Bonham, in Fannin county, and after living there and in Sherman moved to Fort Worth . . . Mr. H. G. Hendricks, Sr., died at Fort Worth in 1873, and is deserving of mention as one of that city's very prominent pioneer citizens."
