    Notes 
    • From: Allan Horrocks
      Warren was born on August 13, 1880 in Urich, Missouri, Henry County. He
      was the oldest son of William Daniel Hendrick and Margaret Risser Mohler
      who had fourteen children. He married Clara Viola Nelson on April 10,
      1905 in Montrose, Missouri, Henry County. They removed to Colorado
      Springs, Colorado after their marriage where he was employed in a silver
      smelter. It was here that he was poisoned with chlorine gas and suffered
      the rest of his life with pernicious anemia. Warren and Clara's first two
      children were born in Colorado Springs, Deena in 1906 and Claire in 1908.
      They moved to Manzinola, Colorado where he had a farm, growing garden
      vegetables and melons. Ruth and Kenneth were born here, Ruth in 1911 and
      Kenneth in 1912. In 1914, they moved to Maxwell, New Mexico, Colfax
      County. They moved in a covered wagon over the Raton Pass taking along
      stock. They settled on a section of land in the Maxwell Land Grant and
      farmed sugar beets, alfalfa, and grain. Daughters Rachel (1915) and Mary
      Margaret (1917) were born here and their son Kenneth died in 1915. In
      1917-1918 they moved to a ranch, along the Vermajo River, called Van's
      Ranch. It was nine miles to Maxwell and so the children often boarded in
      town. Jane (1918) and J.D. (1919) were born here along with one unnamed
      child who was stillborn. The ranch had an orchard so they raised fruit,
      vegetables, melons, and grain. In 1925 the local bank went broke so they
      moved to Dawson, New Mexico and Warren got a job in the mines as a
      shot-fire. A daughter, Doris Lee (1923) and a son, Robert (1927) were
      born in Dawson.

      In 1928, Clara and the smaller children moved to Kelso helped out by
      friends who drove them. It was their original plan to settle in the
      Spokane area, but when they arrived there it was so hot that they decided
      to continue on to the Longview/Kelso area as they heard that employment
      opportunities were available there. Warren, with the older children,
      arrived in 1929. Clara got a job as a house keeper for a wealthy family
      who lived nearby. They leased a farm on Haussler Road and Warren raised
      vegetables and fruit. They later bought some land on Haussler Road and
      built a house. When Warren's mother died. he bought some more land across
      the road. He had several cows, pigs, sheep, some fruit trees and a large
      garden. At one time, all their married children, except for Ruth, lived
      on Haussler Road, many of them on land that he had originally purchased.

      Warren was a gardener at the R. A. Long High School and for several
      doctors in the Longview area. He was a long time member of the Masons and
      received their rites at his burial. He was a very kind man and of a quiet
      nature. He was a very good farmer and could grow anything in abundance.
      I can remember him very well. I particularly remember him coming to our
      house to listen to the boxing matches, as Joe Louis was his favorite. We
      would all crowd around the radio, he in a chair and us boys on the floor
      and cheer madly when Joe would win. I also have the same memories of him
      listening to President Roosevelt's fireside chats during the second world
      war. Warren died on August 19, 1957, of cancer, in Kelso, Washington. He
      was buried at the Cowlitz View Cemetery.
