Cemnsus records indicate that John Sanders Kendrick was married to an Adriana not a Francis. Researching 1850 and 1860 census records reveals:
The 1860 Federal Census for North District, Pittsylvania Co., VA, Chatam P. O., page 73, dated August 4, 1860 records Joseph Kasey (43 - VA) with Francis Kasey (34 - VA), Nancy Kasey (31 - VA), Permelia Kasey (17), Josephine Kasey (7), and Elizabeth Kasey (3 - VA).
The 1860 Federal Census for North District, Pittsylvania Co., VA, Callands P. O., page 32, dated July 9, 1860 records John Kasey (27 - VA) with Salley Kasey (30 - VA), Ardina Kasey (13 - VA), George Kasey (10),and William Kasey (2).
Both Francis and Nancy Kasey (Casey) are reported in the 1880 Pittsylvanioa Co. Census ...
Thus ... this researcher believes John Saunders Kendrick married Ardina Kasey ... and her mother was Salley Kasey as indicated on the marriage record above. Perhaps Ardina's middle name was Francis as she repeated is described as Ardina F. Kendrick.
