  • Notes 
    • Albert HENDRICKS 1991: 6 1963: 6

      Witnesses at Albert's christening were his paternal uncle, Albert Hendrickson
      and wife, Joanna Mills, following the traditional custom that the witness be
      (or be a representative for) the person for whom the child was being named.

      Albert enlisted for Revolutionary War service in 1771 from Fredericktown, MD,
      serving in the same "Maryland Flying Camp" as his brother William. (D04) During
      his five separate enlistments he served in the battles of White Horse,
      Germantown, Monmouth, and the seige of Ninety Six. He attained the rank of
      Sergeant and was discharged for the last time on April 28, 1782. Albert is
      #90032 in the DAR Registry of North Carolina Revolutionary Soldiers.

      On March 13, 1833, Albert applied for a pension under the Pension Act of 1831,
      from Sumner County, TN. His pension record, #24388, is the source of much of
      the genealogical and biographical information we have.

      In 1935, John Brockett Hendrix related that his great-grandfather Albert had
      given $200 to his father, Henry Hendricks for safe-keeping. After two years of
      Revolutionary War service he returned home and asked for his money. His father
      replied, "Why no, son, that money is mine. You are not 21 yet, and you and
      your money both belong to me." Tradition among the descendants of Albert
      states that Albert never spoke to his father again.

      At some point after his final descharge in 1782 (and perhaps because of his
      dispute with his father), Albert went to Ft. Cumberland, MD, where his brother
      William resided. He appears in the 1790 census there but a year or so later
      (at the age of 32 or 33) he must have returned to Rockingham Co., NC as on 9
      Sep 1791 (or 1792) he married Margaret Barnett. This is the name she gave in
      her application for pension after Albert's death in 1843. The Barnett and
      Barnard families were in the same places at the same times with various
      branches of the Hendricks family. The names Barnett and Barnard were used
      interchangably.

      Albert and Margaret moved from North Carolina about 1799, settling in Sumner
      County, Tennessee. In 1820 they were listed in the Sumner Co. census, in 1830
      in Simpson Co., KY, and in 1840 in Sumner Co., TN again. These two counties
      are adjacent to each other and the family apparently owned property on both
      sides of Drake's Creek, which separated the two counties.
