Looking for proof of middle name for my paternal great great grandfather,James P. Hendry, born August 3, 1861, Pine Mountain/Chipley, Harris County, Georgia, to Sampson James Hendry and Adeline Morgan. He always signed his name J. P. Hendry or James P. Hendry. Documentation of middle name has not been found. Census records have only James. His headstone and death certificate have J. P. Hendry. Very distant relatives say his middle name was Pinkard. His grandchildren and other close relatives who knew him do not know. The "P" may only be an initial. I am not aware of any Hendry-Pinkard connections in my line but there may be. J. P. was married to Martha Frances "Fannie" Florence. They lived in Chambers Co., AL and Troup Co., GA, also. He died June 3, 1943.
