incorporating notes from Patty M Mulnix
Daniel Hendrick married ca 1760 Elizabeth, the
very recent widow of George Straughan and mother of two young children
[Daniel and Rachel]. [This is presumed to be Daniel Hendrick's
Daniel Hendricks was the son of Daniel Hendricks who

Bertie County Court Records:
10 Nov 1741 Petition of Daniel Hendricks, Hannah Hendricks and Sarah Hendricks, orphans of
Daniel Hendricks and Hannah Hendricks are administrators of the estate of Daniel Henricks
Daniel Hendricks assigned to jury to lay out road
11 May 1742 road from Black Walnut Bridge to Thomas Sutton's on Cashy
9 Nov 1742 road from Rogues Bridge to Robert Smith's on
July 1755 Road Petition - To the Worshipful Court of Bertie County:
We the Subscribers humbly believe as how that there is great want of a road
from Richard Tomlinson's Ferry Landing on Moratock River to Daniel
Hendrick's Landing on Cashie River - it being the readiest, quickest and
best way for strangers and travelers to go, and least work for laborers to
do on the said road, and the most convenient for the inhabitants thereabout.
Therefore, we your humble Petitioners humbly pray that your Worships will
take into consideration and grant us an order for the road.
We your Petitioners further showeth that there was a petition
brought before your worships for a road from Spike's [Speight's] Land to the
road to Tomlinson's Ferry, which petition was privily carried and signed by
strangers and people in another county - to which your Worships ordered a
road, which road is not yet laid out, but if laid out will be of great
prejudice or ruining several of the Subscribers' plantations. So we your
Petitioners humbly pray your Worships will take it into consideration and
alter the road from Spikes' Landing to Hendrix Landing, which is not a
quarter of a mile further and to the damage of nobody - and your Petitioners
will be in duty bound ever to pray. /s/ Michel Hill, Jos. Williamson,
