  • Notes 
    • J. Frank Hendrickson was born August 17, 1853 at “Queens Station”, New York at the old family homestead, where both his father and grandfather was born. His grandfather, William was a farmer and a blacksmith.

      J. Frank’s father D. B. Hendrickson,was also a farmer, and a noted horseman, owner and proprietor of the Springfield Driving Park. He married Mary daughter of Early Granger, native of England, and a remarkably industrious man who was noted for various unusual accomplishments. He organized and led the first brass band in the then village of Brooklyn, he and his nine sons constituting its entire membership . He was a bricklayer by occupation, and among his accomplishments was building the first baker’s oven in Brooklyn, and the great brick chimney in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. D. B. Hendrickson died in 1886.

      At the time of the writing of Long Island History, Mary Granger Hendrickson was still alive, as were five of her seven children: Benjamin I. living on the family farm; Mary L. wife of W.B. Raynor of New Hyde Park; Daniel, living at Jericho; and, Charles B. living at South Jamaica.

      J. Frank Hendrickson stayed at the family farm until he was 27 years old, thereafter traveling as a fertilizer salesman. In 1899, seizing an opportunity to open his own business, he established at Queens Station a store for all agricultural implements, with a specialty in Maine seed potatoes.

      He was a member of the Dutch Reformed Church, serving variously as deacon, elder, and superintendent of the Sunday School.

      He was married to Ella Smith who died in 1887 after bearing two children. Only Mary E. Hendrickson lived to adulthood, and was a graduate of Moody’s School in Northfield, MA, and the Normal School of Jamaica. She was a teacher at Creedmoor at the time of the Long Island History.

      Hendrickson remarried to Emma Anderson who bore him two sons: Howard F and Robert E. Hendrickson.
