Who was Martha, the wife of Hawkins Hendrix?

This is another of my brick walls. I don't know the maiden name of Martha who married Hawkins Hendrix sometime around 1830. According to the 1850 census Martha was born ca 1810 in Virginia, however some of their dhildren said she was born in TN on later census listings. Their first child, Daniel Hendrix, was born ca 1831 in TN. They couldn't have lived in Tennessee very long since all of the rest of their children were born in IL, most likely in Greene Co, IL where Hawkins and Martha were living by at least 1840. Both Hawkins and Martha died before the 1860 census, Hawkins in 1852 in Greene Co, IL and Mrrtha in 1859 in St. Clair Co, MO.

Hawkins Hendrix was a son of Bethuel and Flava Griswold Hendrix. He was born ca 1808, probably in Onondaga Co, NY. By 1820 the family had moved to Scioto Co, OH and by 1830 Bethuel and Flava were living in Greene Co, IL with some of their younger children. The 2 oldest sons, Stephen G Hendrix and Hawkins Hendrix, are not with them in that census and I haven't found them listed anywhere else.

Stephen Hendrix married Harriet Kerby in 1832 in St. Louis, MO. Most of the other children of Bethuel and Flava Hendrix were married in Greene Co, IL. Where and when were Hawkins and Martha married?
