Daniel Hendricks & Elisabeth

Sally’s great-great-great-great-great Grandparents:

Daniel Hendricks 1720/23 – 1768 | his parents
& Elisabeth ? ca 1740 – 1785 | her parents
of Bertie County, North Carolina

This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!
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 first marriage.]

Daniel Hendricks was the son of Daniel Hendricks who died Bertie County ca 1741.
Dan Jr was old enough to be appointed the administrator of his father’s estate with his sister Hannah.

Daniel Hendricks married Elisabeth the widow of George Strachan (Straughan) ca 1714 – 1760 of Bertie County. (Bertie Wills and estate records)

As Elisha Whitfield is her co-executor on her 2nd husband’s estate I wonder if she might not have been a Miss Elizabeth Whitfield.

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 Cashay

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.
