  1. Maud(e) Stanley was born 25 Apr 1883. This makes her 16 yrs old when she married. The erroneous listing of 1888 makes her 11!
    Thank you.

  2. Maude Stanley was born 25 Apr 1883, making her 16 years old when she married Thomas Hendricks, Jr., not 11!
    Thank you.

  3. There are a few mistakes on the listing of children for Thomas Hendricks, I am the granddaughter of Hazel Hendricks, one of his daughters. There is a “Thomas Franklin Hen­dricks born March 13, 1921” listed. He had no child by that name. Additionally, his sons named William Starr Hendricks, born May 7, 1923 and Jack Coolidge Hendricks, born May 21, 1927 are not shown. Hazel’s middle name was Mildred, Ross was actually Wallace Ross, and Pauline was actually Tommie Pauline. Also omitted is the baby that died, born to Maude Stanley and Thomas Hendricks, Jr. She was Janana HENDRICKS, born and died on 24 Feb 1910, Tahlequah, Cherokee Co. My understanding is that Maude had the measles when she delivered Janana. Both died as a result, Janana at birth, and Maude 10 days later.
