Of the former, it says: "Miss Hendrix is the granddaughter of the late Mr. Adam Hendrix, one of the pioneer citizens and bankers of Fayette; the daughter of the late Mr. Fremont Hendrix and a young woman who is dearly loved by her friends for her bright, amiable disposition, and who is universally admired for her beauty and accomplishments."
