Miss Maria Hendry

Maria Hendry was the daughter of Judge Alonzo W. Hendry and his wife, the former Jane Penfield. She was born in Sandusky, Ohio on July 11, 1849. This was the same month in which the dreadful cholera epidemic struck Sandusky, but luckily Maria and her parents survived the epidemic. For many years, Maria worked in the office of the Erie County Recorder's Office, at the courthouse. On May 2, 1917, Miss Maria Hendry died suddenly in Penfield, Ohio. Her remains were returned to Sandusky for burial at Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery, where she was buried in the family lot.
