I found some of your Hendricks-Kerr query in the books by Lawrence County Historical Society from their Marriages and Cemetery Inscriptions.

Vol 1, "Lawrence County Marriage Records, ABC 1845-1870".
Hendrick, Bennet, to Mary Murry, 17 Apr 1867, JD Shelton, MG, pg 386
Hendricks, B. L. to Mary Murphy, 8 Nov 1863, by N R Fulton, Pg 270
Hendricks, Henry W. to Malinda Dunkle, 28 Feb 1860, by George Long, MG, pg 219
[You can order copies of these marriage licenses from "Lawrence Co. Clerk's Office, Mt Vernon, MO 65712) by referencing the year of marriage, with page number after the Ministers or J.P. name.]

The LCMO Historical Society has published cemetery inventories for all the townships of Lawrence County that were formed when Lawrence Co. first organized in May 1845.
They are: Spring River, Freistatt (Fry-Stat), Pierce, Mt Pleasant, Red Oak, Greene, Lincoln, Aurora, Mt Vernon, Hoberg & Buck Prairie.

In Vol 5, "Tombstone Inscriptions, Buck Prairie Twp, pg 23:
Marionville IOOF (Odd Fellows) Block 2 of Old Part, Lot 61:
Webb, Anna M. 1872-1961

There are 15 volumes of Marriages for Lawrence County from 1845 through 1943. These can be found on the Lawrence County Mo Website. Vol 1 of this set also includes pages from Barry County Marriages 1839 - 1845 before North Barry became Lawrence County in 1845. I found no Hendricks name.
There are several more burials under the name "Hendrix" buried at Marionville IOOF on multple pages of same book from above.
