I have to say again that I don't know too much about the Hendricks family. They lived most of the time in Oklahoma and we lived in. Texas, but I did see some of them a few times in our home and visited with some of the Hendricks boys in Brownfield. We were not close enough for me to tell too much about them.
I can remember Aunt Phila Hendricks coming to our home in 1928 and visiting with her brother, Kleber Dessex Brian, my father. The best I can remember, she was short and heavy, nice looking, and real friendly. I can recall that she and dad had some real good laughs together. She departed this life, December 21, 1963. She lived to be 94 years of age.
