  • Notes 
    • Cited from the monograph by Allen R. Hennessee:

      "Patrick and Nancy Henessa maintained the plantation left to Patrick by his father John. In 1833, a ferry was established across the Catawba River below the mouth of Johns River at the plantation of Col. John Sudderth on the north side and Patrick Hennessa on the south side. According to the book by Edward W. Phifer, Jr. entitled, "Burke - The History of a North Carolina County", the bond for each ferry was $500. Rates listed for cargo were 75 cents for a wagon and 4 horses, loaded 50 cents for a wagon and 4 horses, empty 37 cents for a wagon or carryall and 2 horses 25 cents for a carryall and 1 horse 12 cents for a man and horse 75 cents for a carriage and 4 horses 25 cents for a gig or sulky. The ferry was still operating in 1846 and was called Sudderth's Ferry."

    • Suddreth land is currently owned by Peggy (Hennessee) & Ralph Ballew.

    • This first one I believe belongs to this Patrick based on some of the documents within it which have initials of some of his heirs: <http://www.thehennesseefamily.com/getperson.php?personID=I915&tree=hennessee>

      <https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K78C-D99> The dates you have and the dates on the record appears to be off though but as best as I can tell, that seems to be him. I couldn't swear to it though.

    • Patrick Hennessa, Hennesa, Hennessee - - married Nancy, the sister of Col. John Sudderth. Col. John owned a plantation on the north side of Catawba River. Patrick owned a plantation on the opposite side joining the mouth of Hunting Creek. Together, they ran a toll ferry that connected a public road between the two plantations.

      Patrick was the ancestor of many Hennessees later found in Burke County. His wife Nancy moved to North Cove in McDowell County after Patrick's death and is buried there.

      When Union General Gillem came to raid Morganton April 17th, 1865, his men stood on the Col. John Sudderth side of the river at Rocky Ford and were shot at by the Morganton Home Guard from the Hennessee side of the river.

      Patrick is the only known Hennessee buried in the old Sudderth Family Cemetery now found in the Burke County Landfill and has a readable stone.
