It has come to our attention that some folks, when answering a

asked to be reimbursed for postage and photocopy costs. However, charging research fees for

THOMAS HENDRIX's Will was written Oct 1819 in Williamson Co. TN in
which he named his following children: Adam Hendrix; Nancy Hill;
Ruth Jackson; Thomas Hendrix(Jr.); & Isaac Hendrix. He also named
