OLD CITIZEN ANSWERS CALL
Green Lee Hendrix, of Stantonville, died at his home on the
morning of September 6, 1933. He was nearing his 90th birthday
when the summons came. Mr. Hendrix had been in feeble health
for some time, and his death has caused much sorrow to those
who knew him throughout the long years of the past. He
belonged to a pioneer family of the county, and was one of its
most highly respected citizens. For a long time he had been a
member of the Primitive Baptist Church.
In the 60's he was a gallant Confederate soldier,
participating in that conflict. He was in that frightful
battle of Franklin and was wounded there and in a battle in
Mississippi. At the time of his death he was on the
Confederate pension roll, being of the small remnant of
soldiers wearing the gray in that war. The survivors are
reduced to less than ten.
Mr. Hendrix was a brother of Mrs. Josh Dixon, who is nearing
her 100th birthday, and who lives at the old homestead in the
Chewalla community. Besides this sister many other relatives
The remains of the good old man were laid to rest Thursday
afternoon in the Ledbetter cemetery, in Hardin county.
We of the Independent extend sympathy to the grief stricken
