Jacob Hendrickson was apparently the youngest son of Matthias and Mercy Vandeventer Hendrickson and was born in Monmouth County, New Jersey, in late April of 1807.1 He reportedly left New Jersey with his parents about 1819. Eventually, the family settled in Lemon Township in Butler County, Ohio, which is presumably where Jacob married Catherine Schenck in 1832. She had also been born in Monmouth County, New Jersey, and had also probably migrated to Ohio with her family as a child or adolescent. Accordingly, the household of Jacob Hendrickson appeared in the population schedule of the 1840 US Census for Butler County, Ohio, and consisted of an adult male and female of thirty to forty and twenty to thirty years of age, respectively, along with three male children between five and ten years and a very young male and female, both under five years old. Clearly, the adult couple can be identified with confidence as Jacob and Catherine themselves and the five children as Chrineyance, John, Isaac, Edwin, and Mariah. Obviously, with the proviso that Peter died as an infant, this is in precise accord with the known family of Jacob and Catherine Schenck Hendrickson. Subsequently, it is known that the Hendrickson family moved from Ohio to Fulton County, Indiana, in the fall of 1841 settling in Section Sixteen in Wayne Township.2 This is affirmed by a land patent issued to Jacob Hendrickson on August 1, 1844, for forty acres described as "the Southeast quarter of the Southeast quarter of Section Nine in Township Twenty-nine of Range One East of the Second Principal Meridian".3 Geographically, the tract described lies just to the north and adjacent to Section Sixteen, which has been identified as the location of Jacob's farmstead. (Presumably, he owned more than this forty acre parcel having probably also bought land claimed by previous settlers.) Moreover, the patent stated that Jacob Hendrickson was "of Butler County, Ohio", which suggests that he actually entered a claim for the parcel prior to or coincident with moving to Indiana. Indeed, this is consistent with an arrival of the family in Fulton County in 1841, since it usually took several years between application and issuance of a land patent. According to Peattie, in Indiana the Hendrickson family first settled in dense forest and built a crude "open face" shelter soon after which they built a more traditional log cabin having dimensions of roughly sixteen by twenty feet. In addition, Peattie further reported that this small structure served as a dwelling for some twenty years which implies that it was probably occupied at various times by as many as eight to twelve persons. Of course, this was not an uncommon situation in pioneer communities and is reflective of the hardships of frontier life. Concomitantly, it appears that Jacob and his family were joined in Fulton County a few years later by the families of his nephew and neice, Joseph N. Hendrickson and Mariah Hendrickson Potts. Subsequent census and civil records along with published newspaper accounts clearly confirm that Jacob and Catherine as well as most of their children remained in this locality for the rest of their lives.4,5 Within this context, Jacob Hendrickson was active in the Democratic Party in the years prior to the Civil War and served as Trustee of Wayne Township in the early 1860's. It is also recorded that he served on the grand jury and was evidently a substantial citizen of the township and county as, likewise, were several of his descendants.6 Catherine Schenck Hendrickson died suddenly in April of 1875. Subsequently, Jacob himself became very ill in April of the next year, but recovered. Indeed, he survived until 1889 and died in late December of that year at the age of eighty-two. Of their ten adult children, four never married, viz., Isaac, Sarah Jane, Ada, and Anna.7Source Notes and Citations:

"JACOB HENDRICKSON was born in Monmouth County, N.J., April 25, 1807. His death occurred in Fulton County, Ind., Dec. 27, 1889. His parents were Matthias and Mercy (Vandeventer) Hendrickson, both of whom were of Dutch descent. When Jacob was twelve years of age his parents removed from New Jersey to Indiana, and for a very brief period resided in Dearborn County, whence they removed to Butler County, Ohio, where they lived many years, the mother dying there. Subsequent to her death the father made his home with his son, Abraham, who resided near Frankfort, Ind., and there he died at an advanced age. He was the father of five sons and one daughter, namely, Abraham, Peter, John, Isaac, Deborah and Jacob. Isaac was killed in battle in the war with Mexico. In Butler County, Ohio, Jacob Hendrickson and Catherine Schenck were united in marriage, Feb. 23, 1832. She was born in New Jersey March 24, 1812. Her death occurred in Fulton County April 6, 1875. She was a daughter of Chrineyance and Maria Schenck, whose ancestors originally came from Holland to America. Jacob Hendrickson settled in Wayne township, Fulton County, Ind., in the year of 1841. He located in the dense forest, and the first cabin he built was constructed out of rails. It was nothing more than a rail pen, with a large door on one side, just on the outside of which the family made fires, burning from logs. This place of habitation was used only long enought to enable Mr. Hendrickson to cut logs and build a rude hut 16x20 feet, which served as a residence for some twenty years. When he came to this county his family consisted of himself, his wife and five children. In this log hut were born unto him and his wife all his other children. The following are the names of all his children: Chrineyance, John, deceased; Isaac, Peter, died in infancy; Edwin R., Maria, Sarah J., Jacob, died in infancy; Matthias, Catherine, Ada Ellen and Ann. Some two or three years after Mr. Hendrickson came to this county, he went to Cincinnati, and from there brought the first cook stove into Wayne township. In an early day, when there were three trustees for each township, Mr. Hendrickson served as one of these trustees for nine years in Wayne township. The records show that for his first year's service he received a compensation of seventy-five cents. He was among the very first settlers of the county, and when he came to the county, but little clearing had been done. He cleared much land, reared a large and industrious family, grew prosperous, owned nearly 600 acres of land at the time of his death, and had gained the respect of a wide acquaintance, when death called him from the scenes of many years of commendable life. His wife preceeded him in death some fourteen years. She was a devoted wife, a loving and kind mother, and a faithful friend."
"CHRINEYANCE HENDRICKSON, eldest son of Jacob and Catherine Hendrickson, was born in Butler County, Ohio, Feb. 24, 1833. He was about nine years of age when his parents came to Fulton County, and since then he has continued to reside in the county. He remained under the parental roof till March 31, 1853, at which date he married Paulina Smith, and moved upon a rented farm. His wife died in the spring of 1857, leaving a son, George P. Hendrickson, now farming and residing in Wayne township. Upon the death of his wife Mr. Hendrickson again made his home with his father and mother, until the year 1864, when he married a second time, wedding Mary Catherine Minton, who has borne him the following children: Sarah E., Catherine, Jacob, Reuben B., Louella, Hattie Ann, and infant, dying unnamed, and Norma Pearl. Mr. Hendrickson farmed as a rentor up to 1873, when he bought the eighty acres on which he now resides. Besides this eighty acres he owns fifty-five additional acres. He has a good residence, farm and other improvements on his farm, and as a farmer he has been very successful. Mr. Hendrickson is a democrat in politics, and both he and wife are members of the Baptist church."
"ISAAC HENDRICKSON, son of Jacob Hendrickson, of whom mention is made elsewhere in this volume, was born in Butler County, Ohio, and was brought to Fulton County by his parents when a child. He has always resided in this county, and has followed farming, in which he has been unusually successful. He lived and farmed with his father until the death of the latter. He now owns the parental homestead, where he resides, together with his sisters - Sarah J., Ada Ellen and Ann. His acreage consists of 180 acres of fine land. Mr. Hendrickson has always voted the democrat ticket and has been identified with the representative citizens of his township."
"EDWIN HENDRICKSON, the fifth son of Jacob and Catherine Hendrickson, was born in Butler County, Ohio, Feb. 8, 1838. He was four years old when his parents settled in Wayne township and virtually his entire life has been spent in Fulton County. He gained a limited education, for in his youth he had poor educational advantages. Besides he was under the necessity of aiding his father and brothers in clearing lands and otherwise working on the farm. He has always farmed and, although he began his career with limited means, he has prospered and now owns a splendid farm of 190 acres. He has a fine brick residence and other good buildings and besides farming he has devoted a considerable portion of his time to stock raising. In 1870 Mr. Hendrickson was united in marriage to Caroline, daughter of Henry and Mary (Long) Estabrook, who were pioneer settlers of Harrison township, Cass County, Ind., where Mrs. Hendrickson was born. Unto the above union there have been born five children, as follows: William N., Elsie E., Oron M., teacher in the district schools; Glenn A., and Ida M. Mr. Hendrickson has always been identified with the democratic party. In 1879 he was elected trustee of Wayne township and as such served two years, making an acceptable officer."
"MATTHIAS HENDRICKSON, the youngest son of Jacob and Catherine Hendrickson was born in Wayne township, Fulton County, Ind., Jan. 13, 1848. Mr. Hendrickson's life pursuit has been farming. He remained at the parental house, farming with his father, till he was nearly thirty-two years of age, or until he was married. He was married Sept. 17, 1879, to Carrie, the daughter of Ephraim and Elizabeth Traver. Mrs. Hendrickson was born in New York state, Sept. 14, 1859. In the spring before his marriage Mr. Hendrickson purchased a tract of eighty acres, where he now resides. Upon this tract of land he moved immediately after his marriage. He has a good frame house and barn, which he built after moving onto the farm. Besides the above eighty acres he owns two other tracts of land, forty acres in one and thirty in another. Mr. and Mrs. Hendrickson's hone has been blessed by the birth of the following children: Harry, Walter C., Frank, Annie, deceased; Jacob Roy, deceased, and Minnie. In politics Mr. Hendrickson has always been a firm democrat. He is a member of the I. O. O. F. and is one of the progressive men of his township."

"In the fall of 1841, Jacob Hendrickson came with his family from Ohio and located upon the farm where he now resides, in Section 16. 'At the time of my arrival here,' said Mr. Hendrickson, 'There were seventeen or eighteen families living within the present bounds of Wayne Township. There were Nathan McCumber and family, Elias Gandy and family, Peter F. Brunck and family, Robert and William Torrence and their families, Frederick Long and family, James Callahan and family, Cornelius Coovert and family, Frank Huff and family, Jacob Smith and family, Jack Smith and family, Moses McElhany and family, Thomas Whalen and family, Felix McLaughlin and family, Samuel Custer and family, Benjamin Adair and family, Maurice Fitzgerald and family, Abraham Sutphen and family, Joseph Horn and family, Michael Wilson and family, and others.' Aaron and John Heiser, Mr. Nicholls, Thomas Burk, James Lamb and Michael Wilson came during the year 1840. Samuel Stroub, Henry Bowman, Joseph (sic - Jacob) Hendrickson and others came in the year 1841. William Van Meter came in the spring of 1842, and John R. Schenck, ----- Camlin and others came later in the same year. Frederick Huffman and Robert Holliday were among the settlers of 1843, and John Teegarden, Isaac Egman, John Matthews, Samuel Lyon, James Van Blaricum, William Phillips and Thomas Phillips were among those who came in 1844. John Hume came in 1845, and during that year the settlement received the addition of several other families, whose names cannot now be obtained. John R. Smalley came in 1847, and located on the land where he still resides, in Section 20. James Thrush came about two weeks later, and located about a mile west of Mrs. Smalley. Jacob Pownall came in the same year, and located about a mile north of the Smalley farm; he now lives in Liberty Township. Between the years 1847 and 1851, new families came to the settlement with greater frequency than in the earlier days, and it would not be possible to give a complete list of all who came within that period. Among this number, however, we may mention the names of Martin Friedner, Daniel Bishop, Ephraim Bishop, Robert McLaughlin, David McGaughey, Robert Beattie, Samuel Beattie, Daniel Rush, Samuel Ware, Peter and Abraham Lane, Alfred McDonald, and others. From this time on, the settlement of the township progressed rapidly."
"Jacob Hendrickson, the son of Matthias and Mercy (Vandeventer) Hendrickson, was born in Monmouth County, N.J., April 25, 1807, and was married, February 23, 1832, to Catharine Shenck, the daughter of ------ and Maria Shenck, natives of New Jersey, and came to Wayne Township in 1841. When Mr. Hendrickkson landed at his present location, but little clearing had been done, and the first cabin he built was but little better and not very much larger than a rail pen. He now possesses 380 acres of as fine farming land as there is in the township. Mr. H. has served as Township Trustee about nine years, and his fourth son, Edwin R., who married Caroline Esterbrook, has served four years as Trustee. His other children are [Chryance], who married Paulina Smith for his first wife, then after her death married Mary Minton; John, whose wife was Mary J. Halstead; Isaac, still at home and single; Maria Herrold, Sarah J., Matthias, Catharine Murray, and Ada and (sic - Anne omitted) H., who are still at home."

"Oron M. Hendrickson, a successful lumber dealer of Rochester, was born in Fulton county, Indiana, February 19, 1877, the son of Edwin R. and Caroline (Estabrook) Hendrickson, the former of whom was born in Ohio on February 8, 1838, and the latter in Cass county, Indiana, August 13, 1848. Jacob and Catherine (Schenck) Hendrickson, the grandparents of our subject, came from New Jersey, where the former was born in 1807, and settled on land in Wayne township, Fulton county, Indiana. They had the first cookstove in the township and brought it from Cincinnati, Ohio, on a wagon. Jacob Hendrickson was active in politics, and for many years, he was the trustee of Wayne township. They had twelve children all of whom grew to maturity and three of whom are still living. He died in 1892 at the age of eighty-three years and his wife died in 1875 aged sixty-five years. Edwin R. Hendrickson came to Fulton county with his parents when he was a boy and was educated in the public schools of Wayne township. He then engaged in the occupation of farming and continued in this for the remainder of his life. He was actively interested in politics, serving for many years as township trustee and in 1900 taking office in the capacity of county treasurer which position he filled for four years. He was married in Fulton county and to this union five children were born: William N., Elsie E., Oron M., Addie Glenn, and Ida Mae, deceased. Edwin Hendrickson was a charter member of the Rochester Lodge No. 79 F. & A. M. He died August 2, 1917, his wife having died in 1884. Oron M. Hendrickson was reared on the home farm in Wayne township and received his elementary education in the public schools of his home community. During the years from 1895 to 1897, inclusive, he studied at the State Normal school at Angola, Indiana, and then returned to his home to teach school for four years, at the conclusion of which he took a business course in the Vories Business College at Indianapolis. Following this, he served as county treasurer for four and a half years, after which he attended medical college for one year. In 1906, he entered the lumber business, going to Arkansas for one year as the representative of the United Walnut Company. For three years thereafter, he was in the employ of the American Lumber Company, of Chicago. On September 1, 1909, he went into the lumber business for himself in Rochester, Indiana, and in this venture he has been eminently successful. He was married on September 4, 1907, to Minnie Imogene Haines, of Iowa. In fraternal circles, Mr. Hendrickson holds membership in the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and in the Masons, being a Thirty-second Degree Mason and a member of the Consistory at Ft. Wayne, Indiana. He and his wife are devout members of the First Presbyterian Church and take an active interest in all of its affairs." This account is in error regarding the survival of the twelve children of Jacob and Catherine Hendrickson, in fact, only ten reached adulthood. Likewise, Jacob Hendrickson died in 1889 not 1892.
