Death of Mrs. Hendricks.

Mrs. Annie L. Hendricks, mention of whose death at the home of her daughter, Mrs. I. D. Henderson, near Cassville, was made in the Courant American last week, was in the eightieth year of her age, and was the mother of ten children, seven of whom survive her.

She was the wife of Lindsey Henderson, who with several other old citizens of this section, was captured by the Yankees at his home in this county in 1865, and carried to Chattanooga, where he was cast into prison, and with three of his neighbors, died from the ill-treatment he received.

Mrs. Hendricks was born in Gwinnett county, Ga., in 1815, and resided there until her marriage, since which time she has made her home in this county. She was a consistent member of the Methodist church, and reared her large family of children to be useful men and women. For the last few years Mrs. Hendricks has made her home with her children, and has shown remarkable vigor for her age, up to the time of the paralytic stroke about ten days ago.
