Moses HENDRICK

ABT 1730 - ABT 1795

ID Number: I97266

  • RESIDENCE: Cumberland and Amelia and Halifax Cos. VA
  • BIRTH: ABT 1730
  • DEATH: ABT 1795, Halifax Co. Virginia
  • RESOURCES: See: [S3548]
Father: Adolphus HENDRICK


Family 1 : Ruth ECHOLS

Notes


son of Adolphus Hendrick (c.1685-1763) of Cumberland County. From his father he inherited 400 acres on Deep Creek in Cumberland County.


Moses was listed as a tithable in the household of Benjamin Hubbard in Amelia County in 1752. It was probably about 1752 that Ruth and Moses married and moved to Halifax with the rest of the Echols’s. William Echols Jr. sold Moses land in Halifax in February 1765. Witnesses to this transaction were Joseph Collins and William Marchbanks.


Moses was a Quaker until 18 August 1797 when the South River Monthly Meeting in Halifax County dismissed him “for purchasing slaves and holding in bondage those whom he had [freed] some time past.”
Several relations appointed Moses an executor of their will. They were his father-in-law William Echols Sr., cousin James Hendrick in 1769, brother-in-law Benjamin Hubbard in 1770, and brother-in-law William Echols Jr. in 1788.


Moses died in Halifax County about 1795 (will dated 26 Sept. 1794, recorded 22 Feb. 1796). Thomas Terry, James Chappell, and James Old witnessed his will. He identified eleven children and left the “Negroes” in the care of his wife until her death when they were to be freed. She immediately freed all twelve.


Children:
1. Joseph Hendrick
2. Mary Hendrick
3. Anna Hendrick
4. Amos Hendrick
5. Chloe Hendrick
6. Sarah Hendrick
7. Judith Hendrick
8. Obadiah Hendrick
9. Betty Hendrick

Jesse recruited Bob and Charlie Ford to help him rob the Platte City bank. The Ford brothers posed as cousins of Jesse James, but actually were not related to Jesse at all. The $10,000 reward on Jesse proved too appealing. While Jesse stood on a chair in the family home at 1318 Lafayette Street in St. Joseph to dust and straighten a picture, Bob and Charlie Ford drew their guns.


Bob Ford put and end to the James Legend with a single bullet to the back of the head on April 3, 1882. The Ford brothers attempted to collect the reward. Instead, they were charged with murder. They were sentenced to hang, but were pardoned by Governor Tom Crittenden.


Two years later Charles Ford committed suicide and Bob Ford, the "dirty little coward who shot Mr. Howard, and laid poor Jesse in his grave," was himself killed in a bar room brawl in Creede, Colorado, in 1892.


Jesse James was a moral paradox. He was a good father and family man, and was religious in his own way. Whether he stole from the rich and gave to the poor, or just kept it all, has never been decided.

Because Jesse was already a highly sought-after outlaw, the Reverend William James, brother of Jesse's father, tried to discourage the union, but he failed to do so and finally performed the ceremony. A "wanted man," Jesse took Zee to Nashville, TN, around 1875 where he hoped they could live in peace under the alias of John Davis Howard. In Nashville, four children were born to Jesse and Zee.

"Frank joined a group of guerrillas, and in the spring of 1863 brought them back to the family farm to rest after a series of raids. Union militia tracked the bushwhackers to the James farm, beat 15-year-old Jesse and tortured Reuben into leading them to the guerrilla camp. Most of the band escaped. If Jesse, having been raised in an adamantly anti-abolitionist family and very likely envying Frank's adventures, needed further incentive to go to war, the day's events provided it."

Documentary douses theory on Jesse's death
BY DION LEFLER
The Wichita Eagle


Excerpt
"A disputed history


For the moment, let's look at what nearly everyone agrees on when it comes to the legend of Jesse James.


First, there is no disputing that there actually was a Jesse Woodson James, born the son of a Baptist preacher in Clay County, Mo., on Sept. 5, 1847.


As a teen, he and his family were brutalized by Northern sympathizers in the then-tumultuous Missouri-Kansas border region.


So, with his older brother Frank, he joined up with Quantrill's Raiders, a band of Confederate guerrilla fighters who visited destruction and death on Unionist soldiers and civilians in Kansas and Missouri. He also served as a Confederate spy.


After the war, Jesse James turned to robbing banks and trains, either for personal gain or maybe to try to finance a rebirth of the Southern cause -- or maybe a little bit of both.


And there's absolutely no doubt he became a folk hero to many who, in a time of rampant corporate abuse of the populace, had no love for bankers or railroadmen.


Traditionalists and revisionists part company about the time of his reported death in 1882.


Traditional history says that Jesse James -- living under the alias Thomas Howard -- was killed by a single bullet shot to the back of the head as he stood on a chair straightening a picture at a rented home in St. Joseph, Mo. The home is now one of several James museums.


The killer was Robert Ford, Jesse James' cousin and a James Gang recruit who turned traitor to collect a $10,000 wanted-dead-or-alive reward.


The revisionist versions are pretty much summed up in the title of Pastore's two-part book: "Jesse James Faked His Death."


They point to inconsistencies in the witness testimony of the time. For example, witnesses testified that only one shot was fired and that it punctured the wall after exiting Jesse James' head. The bullet was actually found lodged in the skull in a 1978 exhumation of his original grave at the family farm in Kearney, Mo.


And, they point out, the bullet was a .38 caliber, not the .45 that Ford testified to having fired.


Jesse James sightings started almost before the body was cold.


At least three other possible Jesses have surfaced in the 121 years since.


Any of them may have been Jesse James, at least, part-time.


Most historians have concluded that some of the robberies originally attributed to the James Gang were copycat crimes, committed by others masquerading as Frank, Jesse and their accomplices.


In fact, Jesse James added to his own legend by writing letters to newspapers denying involvement in some of the robberies committed in his name."
