Patrick Hennessa, Hennesa, Hennessee - - married Nancy, the sister of Col. John Sudderth. Col. John owned a plantation on the north side of Catawba River. Patrick owned a plantation on the opposite side joining the mouth of Hunting Creek. Together, they ran a toll ferry that connected a public road between the two plantations.

Patrick was the ancestor of many Hennessees later found in Burke County. His wife Nancy moved to North Cove in McDowell County after Patrick's death and is buried there.

When Union General Gillem came to raid Morganton April 17th, 1865, his men stood on the Col. John Sudderth side of the river at Rocky Ford and were shot at by the Morganton Home Guard from the Hennessee side of the river.

Patrick is the only known Hennessee buried in the old Sudderth Family Cemetery now found in the Burke County Landfill and has a readable stone.
