This Bio was written by Fannie Clifford Long:

MY MOTHER'S NAME IS MATTIE CLIFFORD HENDRIX TOLBIRD.
SHE WAS BORN ON OCTOBER 9, 1897 AT ANABELLE, LOUISIANA (LUNA) HER FATHER'S NAME IS JAMES (JIM) ANDREW HENDRIX
HER MOTHER'S NAME IS ANN JANE WINK HENDRIX
THE FOLLOWING IS A BRIEF OUTLINE OF MY MOTHER'S LIFE:
MY MAMA WAS THE BEST AND GREATEST MAMA IN ALL THE WORLD. SHE, IN HER OWN WAY, WAS A GODLY WOMAN. I CAN'T REMEMBER EVER HEARING HER USE GOD'S NAME IN VAIN, FOR WHICH I AM VERY PROUD TO BE ABLE TO SAY THAT. SHE WAS A LEADER AND MY DAD A FOLLOWER. SHE WAS ALWAYS THERE TO SEE THAT FOOD OF SOME SORT WAS ON THE TABLE TO EAT, ALWAYS THERE WITH CLOTHES SHE HAD MADE, QUILTS SHE MADE TO KEEP US WARM WHEN IT WAS COLD, WITH FIRE WOOD TO KEEP THE FIRES GOING FOR COOKING AND KEEPING WARM. MAMA ALWAYS GAVE US WHAT IT TOOK TO MAKE US RESPECT HER AND DAD. SOMETIMES WE THOUGHT SHE WAS A MIGHT HARD WITH HER PUNISHMENT, BUT I CAN NOW LOOK BACK AND BE THANKFUL SHE TAUGHT ME AS SHE DID. IN MY HEART I BELIEVE THAT ONE DAY I'LL BE WITH MY MOM AND DAD IN HEAVEN WHERE THERE WILL BE NO MORE SICKNESS, NO MORE SORROW, NO MORE TEARS. JUST HAPPINESS, JOY AND PEACE. THAT IS WHAT I THINK ABOUT MY MOM.
