(October 3, 1929, The Greenville Messenger)

L. C. (Cullus) Hendrix died suddenly Thursday morning, September 26, 1929, at his home in Campbell, where he had resided for about forty years.

The elder Hendrix moved with his family from East Texas to Campbell, being a crippled Confederate veteran and a much esteemed citizen during his life. Cullus served many years as section foreman, first in that capacity for the Katy and later for the L. R. & N. At one time, her served as Justice of the Peace in the Campbell precinct, but had no fondness for official duties and returned to section work, ending a long and busy career as such.

Hales of Greenville, Mrs. Welcome Richards of Ardmore, Oklahoma, Mrs. Ruth Cochran of Wilson, Oklahoma, and Mrs. Fannie Fowler of Canton, formerly of Greenville. One brother also survives, Elbert Hendrix of Fort Worth.
