I mailed some information to you, but I have about 4,200 names in my file. If you can accept it, I could download and send to you. I have additional information on the Meetze, Kelly (Khele), Crout, Sprenckel, etc., lines.

Please e-mail me again, as I did not save your e-mail address. I will capture it and forward what I have.

By the way, which son of Asa Mabel is your father/grandfather? My mother gave me some of the names of their children, but the only ones I remember are Oneta (or Oleta) and Carrie. Carrie just came to my grandmother's funeral some months ago.

Please advise.

Julie, Asa Emanuel was born in Florida, not Alabama. The family left Alabama in 1872.

According to my grandmother (and she could have been wrong, but not normally about family matters), Nancy Drucilla Corley Hendrix went BACK to Alabama to give birth to her youngest child, who was Asa.

The story goes that Drucilla was visiting her sister in Mobile Co., AL when she gave birth to Asa.

I believe Julie is correct about her grandfather's birth place.

They returned to Florida after Asa's birth. The family was still living in Florida.

Your information is correct, Robert. But in addition to Noah Barnabus Hendrix's son, Asa Emmanuel, and Peter Henddrix's son, Asa Sampson, there were two other Asas that I know of. Israel and Artemisia (Hendrix) Garner had a son Joseph Asa, my great-grandfather. Peter and Reuben Hendrix also had a brother named Asa Sampson. The person you are referring to as Lot or Lat is spelled "Lott."
