      The mercantile establishment of S. A. & J. W. Hendee was commenced in April, 1860, on the east side of the railroad, by Wilson & Co., S. A. Hendee being the latter. In 1861, the firm became S. A. & C. A. Hendee, but the following year it became Hendee & Wilson, and so remained until 1865, when the name was changed to Hendee & Clarke. In the fall of 1867, this firm was dissolved, and S. A. Hendee operated it singly until 1872, when by the admission of J. L. Griffiths and D. F. Chidester, the firm name and style was changed to Hendee, Griffiths & Co. In 1874, Griffiths and Chidester retired, S. A. Hendee & Co., continuing. In 1880, D. F. Chidester became a member of the firm, which was continued as S. A. Hendee & Co. In 1882, Mr. Chidester retired from the firm, Mr. Hendee continuing the same under the firm name of S. A. Hendee, until in January, 1885, when J. W. Hendee entered the firm, which was then changed to S. A. & J. W. Hendee. They carry a stock of about $10,000, and are doing a fine business.
      S. A. Hendee was born in Windham county, Connecticut, March 9, 1830, and was a son of Amasa Hendee, who was a native of Vermont. When Stephen was nine years of age, his parents removed to Fulton county, Illinois, where he was reared. In 1852, he went to California, and, after a stay of some two years, went to Central America, and remained four months, then returning to Fulton county, Illinois. In 1854, he engaged in merchandising at Marietta, Illinois, which he continued for two years. He then engaged in trade at Bardolph, in McDonough county, remaining until 1860, in which year he removed to Bushnell, and became a member of the firm of Wilson & Company, as above stated. In addition to merchandising, Mr. Hendee is interested in the grain business with D. F. Chidester, they having elevators in Bushnell, Colchester, Bardolph, Swan Creek, Youngstown, Roseville, Table Grove, Adair and Epperson. On the second of November, 1858, Stephen A. Hendee and Sarah N. Groenendyke, a native of New Jersey, were united in marriage, and their union had been blessed with six children--Luan B., Adrienne G., Nathan B., Leo N., Edgar and Fannie. Mr. Hendee has given his entire attention to his business interests. He is a member of the Masonic order, and also of the Knights of Honor.
