  • Notes 
    • HHFO: D0104William HENDRICKSON 1991: 5 1963: 5

      William's birthdate, as stated by himself in his Revolutionary War Pension
      file, conficts with the apparent christening date shown in the Middletown
      Church records. It is assumed that he stated his birthdate correctly and that
      since there is no actual date next to his christening record that it was before
      26 Feb 1758.

      William appears to be the only son of Henry HENDRICKS who retained the
      HENDRICKSON spelling of the surname throughout his lifetime and whose
      descendants perpetuated it.

      He died before 20 June 1838, when the last notation appears in his pension
      record.

      In July 1776 at Fredericktown, Frederick, MD, where he was a resident, he
      entered into Revolutionary War Service for five months as a private soldier.
      His corps was named the Maryland Flying Camp, with which he marched and fought
      at various locations in Maryland, Delaware, New York, New Jersey and
      Pennsylvania. He was honorably discharged at Philadelphia about Christmas time
      1776.

      He again entered the service as a corporal in the Maryland Militia in August
      1777 at Fredericktown, where he was still a resident. He turned out for a
      draft, but when he was not drafted, he volunteered for a term of 10 weeks. He
      fought in several battles in Maryland and Pennsylvania after which he was
      discharged in Fredericktown 10 weeks later.

      The Evangelical Church of Frederick records William's marriage to Charlotte
      Hinkle 6 Jan 1778. Witnesses were Joram Bloomer, Robert Sapp, David Davis and
      Elizabeth Hinckle. The couple lived in the Fredericktown area for at least
      another two years as attested to by the births of their first two children
      there.

      Some time in 1780/1781 the family migrated west to Ft. Cumberland, Allegany,
      MD, where they resided for 20 years.

      Early in the new century William and Charlotte turned their faces west. They
      migrated first to Indian Wheeling Creek (now Ohio State) then spent a short
      time at Danville, Knox, Ohio before moving to the final stop, Richland County,
      Ohio.

      There has been some misunderstanding about William's wife Charlotte. Deeds in
      Maryland show her as Charlotte, but later deeds executed from Ohio list
      William's wife as Keziah. This has been interpreted to mean William had a
      second wife. However, further investigation produces even later deeds, in
      which his wife is again listed as Charlotte. The most likely explanation is
      that Charlotte's middle name (or nickname) was Keziah.



      William's birthdate, as stated by himself in his Revolutionary War Pension file, conficts with the apparent christening date shown in the Middletown Church records. It is assumed that he stated his birthdate correctly and that since there is no actual date next to his christening record that it was before 26 Feb 1758.

State of Ohio ) Richland County: ) On this seventh day of September A.D. 1832 personally appeared in open court before the Judges of the Supreme Court of Richland County Ohio now sitting William Hendrickson a resident of Vermillion Township Richland County, Ohio aged 75 years the 23rd day of December 1832 who being first duly sworn according to law doth on his oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the act of congress passed June 7th 1832. That in the latter part of July 1776 at Fredericktown in the State of Maryland where he then resided he entered into the service of the United States as a private soldier in a rifle company of which Peter Manse (or Mance) was Captain, Adam Crush was Lieutenant and Peter Adams was second Lieutenant. Captain Manse was afterwards promoted to Major Lieutenant Crush to Captain of the company. Reazin Bell or Beal was Brigadier General, Griffin was Colonel, Schryawk was Lieutenant Colonel, and Peter Manse aforesaid was Major. Adams was Brigade Major Mountjoy Bailey was Adjutant. From Frederick he marched with the company to Annapolis and then went with his company after Gov. Dunmore, 13 days and returned. From Annapolis he went by water to the Head of Elk and landed and marched to Wilmington from there by water to Philadelphia, then marched to New York where he arrived under the officers above mentioned three days before the place was evacuated by the American Army. He left the city with the Army and encamped between the city and Fort Washington, and was in a battle there about the middle of September he thinks. Some time after the battle he was removed to what was then called the Tuckahoo Heights. From there he was marched to the White Plains. There crossed the River, and marched down the west side to Fort Lee and Fort Constitution and was there when Fort Washington was taken. From there he went to Brunswick in New Jersey and from there to Princetown retreating before the British. He had entered the service for the term of five months which term expired when the Army was about 3 miles from Brunswick, but at the request of the Captain the company kept in order until they arrived at Philadelphia where he was dismissed having fully and faithfully served out his term of five months and some few days over. He does not recollect the exact day he was discharged but knows it was about Christmas. He received a written discharge but not knowing that it would be of any consequence he took no care of it, and does not recollect that he has seen it since about that time. The corps to which he belonged was called the Maryland Flying Camp. In August 1777 still residing in Fredericktown Maryland he again entered the service as a corporal in the Maryland Militia at Fredericktown under Captain William Duvall, Thomas Flemming, 1st Lieutenant, Peter Gephart 2nd Lieutenant, Ian? Hill 3rd Lieutenant, Brigadier General Smallwood. Colonel Johnson & Lieutenant Colonel Luckett are all the field officers whose names he now currently recollects. He marched to Baltimore, then to Johnston Ferry five miles from the mouth of the Susquehanna, and then crossed the River, and was engaged the Battle of Paoli just after General Wayne had been surprised. From there marched across the country and was in the battle of Germantown and Chestnut Hill. After the Battle he was marched to Lancaster, then to Little York, Pa. then to Fredericktown where he was discharged but does not recollect that it was in writing if it was he long since lost it. He does not recollect the date of his discharge but knows it was in cold weather and that he served ten weeks fully and faithfully. He turned out on a draft but was not drafted. The officers called for volunteers and he and others turned out in sufficient numbers to make up to quota called for in the corps to which he then belonged. He was born in New Jersey in a little town about 30 miles from New York called Middletown Point in the year 1757. He (has) a record my age made by himself in his Bible, and no other.
