NOTE FROM BRYAN DOAK BILLS: Catherine and Spencer Hendrickson are listed in the "Pleasants County, WV Genealogy Page" as being buried in the Bills Cemetery, at Calcutta, but I really do not believe this to be the fact. I have always heard the rumor that they were either buried in the Bills Cemetery or the Rinehart/Cecil Cemetery and I really believe that if they are in this area at all they are in the Rinehart/Cecil Cemetery which is located much closer to the old Hendrickson home on Schultz Fork Creek run. Also, it has been rumored, that Roberta (Rinehart) Hendrickson wife of Robert Hendrickson was buried in the Bills or Rinehart/Cecil Cemeteries, although there is no stone for her in either cemetery, she could very well be in the Bills Cemetery because she would have died sometime after 1874 when her son Jacob Spencer was born. - As near as I can determine, the first three graves in the Bills Cemetery are those of, first, Joseph M. Bills, Aug. 30, 1853/Apr. 20, 1857, son of Joseph and Emaline/Emoline (Reynolds) Bills, second, Eliza Ellen Bills, Sep. 2, 1855/Nov. 9, 1862, daughter of Joseph and Emaline/Emoline Bills, third, Joseph Bills, Apr. 8, 1813/Sep. 30, 1887, husband of Emaline/Emoline (Reynolds) Bills. - Therefore, assuming that the death dates of the elder Hendricksons are correct as given - August 30, 1856 - it does not seem logical to me that anyone would have been buried there before the son of Joseph and Emaline/Emoline Bills considering that the cemetery is located on the farm of Joseph Bills. - Also, part of the rumor was that this particular pair of Hendricksons did not come to this part of the country at all, and were buried some where around Gormania, near the West Virginia and Maryland border. - Therefore, lacking any hard facts, I only bring this rumor some seventy-odd years ahead. I would welcome any real facts.

December 29, 2013: JULIE TRUAX BALLARD (truaxballard@yahoo.com) asked: I am looking for information on the cemetery of the United Brethren Church in Calcutta. I don't know if this church still exists or if it is called something else now. I have an old newspaper article which says my 5th great grandparents Spencer & Catherine Hendrickson are buried in the United Brethren Church graveyard. However I know that wvgenweb and findagrave.com both indicate the Hendricksons are buried in the Bill's Family Cemetery which is also in Calcutta. - Do you know if the church graveyard is still there? - Do you have any other information about the Hendricksons? --- Julie sent the OLD NEWSPAPER ARTICLE, date unknown.
