    [R016c] A memorial and biographical history of the counties of Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Ventura, California: J. W. Hendricks, a farmer of Lompoe, was among the first settlers there. He was born in Dayton, Ohio. In 1823, his father, Aaron M. Hendricks, was by trade a carpenter, and a native of Tennessee. In 1812 he was in the battle of New Orleans as Sergeant, under General Jackson. In 1837 he emigrated to Indiana, where he followed his trade. The subject of this sketch lived at home until twenty-two years of age, and worked at farming. In 1846 he was married, at West Point, Tippecanoe County, to Esther A. Wagner, a native of Ohio. Mr. Hendricks then rented a farm of about 150 acres and followed farming up to 1865, when he crossed the plains for California. P. W. Fondy was in command of the train, which was very large, and there was much sickness in the company. They were five months on the way, and came to California by Truckee. Mr. Hendricks then went to Marysville, where he bought 120 acres and farmed for four years, then going to Hollister, where he rented 600 acres, and carried on general firming up to the fall of 1874; when he came to Lompoe and bought sixty-eight acres where he now resides. Land was then covered with brush, and they could shoot wild-cats, deer end coyotes from the house. The land is now nicely cleared and under a high state of cultivation; mustard, beans and barley are now his chief crops, and he also raises a fine grade of horses. He has three children, all married. After many years of hardship Mr. Hendricks fully enjoys his present comfortable home.]; [Oakland Tribune - Monday, May 04, 1896 - Oakland, California - Forcible Arguments - P. W. Fonda Places His Fist Over A. D. Spearman's Optics. The Wrangle Arose During a Row Over Some Attached Goods - P. W. Fonda of 1728 and 1732 Seventh street was in fighting humor this morning, and, according to the story told by Chief Deputy District Attorney Church, left the impress of his knuckles above the left eye of a salesman named A. D. Spearman. The informant was Spearman himself, who stated that Fonda was about to cover him with a shotgun when the later's son interfered and perhaps averted bloodshed. The cause of this trouble was an attachment which was issued in San Francisco against some goods which were sold to Joseph Feld by tho Provo Cotton Mills, which Spearman represents. The goods are valued at over $200 and have not been paid for. They are now in one of Fonda's stores on Seventh street, and, despite the attachment, Fonda declares they belong to him. He says he traded some property for them with Feld in a certain part of the State. The attachment, therefore, was decidedly displeasing to Fonda. When Spearman appeared on the scene this morning, he found that the store in which the goods were stored was closed, while the other one was opened. Some words panned between Spearman and Fonda, and, according to Spearman's story, without provocation, Fonda struck Spearman over fhe left temple with his fist. He then seized a shotgun. It is alleged, for the purpose of using it on the salesman, but Fonda's son interfered. The angry man attempted to push his son aside, stating at the same time that he knew how to use the gun. The weapon, however, was taken away before he could do any harm, whereupon Spearman hastened to the District Attorney's office, where he lodged a complaint against Fonda. Joseph Feld, who, Spearman says, owns the goods in controversy, formerly resides in Alameda and more recently in this city. He is now in jail in San Francisco, having been committed for contempt of court for neglecting to pay alimony to his wife. It is said that he owes $400 in this way, and that at the expiration of a five days sentence he is liable to be again arrested on refusal to satisfy his wife's claims.]
