Deputy Collector John Hendrix was shot and killed near Smithtown, North Carolina, while destroying a still he had discovered in Stokes County.

He was part of a larger group of 16 officers who were searching for moonshiners in the region, but had become separated from the group. He came across a still and began destroying it, but was fired upon by two subjects.

Both were charged acquitted of conspiracy of murder, but were convicted of distilling and tax charges. Both were sentenced to three years in prison.

Deputy Collector Hendrix was survived by his parents and two sisters.

Deputy Collector Hendrix,
On today, the 107th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country. Like the previous reflection left, I'm angered too that your murderers didn't get the justice that they deserved.
