Hendricks Caudill For Magistrate
To the Voters of the Lower Rockhouse District: Gentlemen and Friends--After being solicited by many voters of this district and after due consideration I hereby announce my candidacy for Magistrate of this district. First I am deeply interested in the welfare of our people and the upbuilding of our county. Secondly, that we may enjoy peace, prosperity and happiness, and the only way that we may receive those blessings is thru and by the proper application and enforcement of our laws. Gentlemen, the situation calls for the utmost vigilance, because our country is rapidly passing into the industrial age---our population will increase greatly and crime will increase in proportion unless the proper course is taken to prevent it. Another subject that I am deeply interested in is good roads. It is true we have a fairly good market for our products. But still farming is not altogether profitable on account of bad roads. In conclusion I earnestly ask that you think seriously of all these things and should I be elected I promise faithfully to do all in my power for the dommon good of our people. Yours truly, Hendricks Caudill.

Obituary of Hendricks Caudill
Card of Thanks - Caudill
He was born December 9, 1886 and passed from this life January 17, 1963. His stay on earth was 76 years, 1 month and 8 days. Brother Hendricks was the son of James D Caudill and from a family of 6 children - 3 boys and 3 girls, all deceased except 2 sisters, Amanda Fields and Paulina Blair. His father and mother also passed from this life many years ago. Surviving him are his wife, sister Anna Dixon Caudill and the following children - Estill, Blackey, Ky.; Clifton Carcassonne; James D., at home; H. D. Jr., Owensboro, Ky.; Charles Eugene, Indianapolis, Ind.; Clara Blair, Blackey; deceased, Ellis Kenneth and Crissie. Lee.
He joined the church the 3rd Sunday in June 1924 and lived a faithful member until death. He was a farmer and school teacher and raised a large respectable family and we all can say he did a wonderful job. Brother Hendricks will be greatly missed by all in the Old Indian Bottom Association. He was clerk and assistant clerk for about 35 years. We are now missing his great wisdom, understanding and advise and we doubt if we have a man in the association of his equal. We can say he has fought a good fight and has kept the faith and hasn't deviated from the old way. We know he has had many trials and tribulations here in this life. He traveled over the hills and mountains, through heat and cold to declare life and salvation is of the Lord. He leaves to mourn his passing his wife, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, many relatives, friends and a great host of brothers and sisters in the Old Regular Baptist Church.
Now to all, Brother Hendricks has gone the way of all the earth. He has paid the debt we all have to pay. We now feel he is resting from his labor, his soul under the altar of God, waiting for a new body that will not die anymore, but live with God forever. Children, you can't call him back, but by the grace of God, can live with him. So please, repent. By H. B. Reedy.
We, the family of Elder Hendricks Caudill, wish to express to our friends and relatives, our appreciation for the many acts of sympathy and kindness given to us at the time of the illness and death of our loved one. The comforting words, the flowers, those who sat with us, the food, the cards, and ministers who consoled us, made ourloss easier to bear. We than the staff of the Whitesburg Memorial Hospital and the Craft Funeral Home.
