  • photograph of Ernest Sherwood Hendren in his later years

    photograph of Ernest Sherwood Hendren in his later years from granddaughter Sherry Banner: Ernest Sherwood Hendren October 13, 1881 – January 21, 1976 “I don’t have much specific biographical information about my grandfather…He was a graduate of Wake Forest College and at some point in his work life, he was Superintendent of Schools for Surry County, NC as well as head of that county’s Civilian Conservation Corps. His nick-name among his peers was “The Professor.” He was a master checkers player, once playing (and I THINK, beating?) the world champion. He and his dear wife, my grandmother, Hattie Heeth Hendren, were long-time residents of Mount Airy living on Franklin Street. (The house is now gone.) His love for his wife was as deep and committed as any love I have ever witnessed. He was a true family man, a banjo player, a gardener, a bee-keeper, a story-teller… a joy to know and love.

Sue May Hendren Banner February 13, 1913 – April 2, 1972 My mother was the oldest of three children, only two of whom survived to adulthood. My mother and one sister five years her junior had a younger brother who died in infancy. Sue May Hendren graduated from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (Womens College) in 1932. She taught high school English until her marriage to E.C. Banner and subsequent birth of three children. My mother returned to teaching in the early 1950s teaching 6th grade, followed y years of teaching high school English and/or French until her health began to fail in 1971. Sue May Hendren was a woman of substance; she was intelligent, loving, strong in her commitment to integrity. She was a voracious reader and enjoyed writing. As her daughter, I have often thought – had she chosen a different life’s path – she might have become an accomplished author and scholar
