I do not have much on Henry.He was born July 23 1791 and died Feb,18 1936. He froze to death walking home drunk.The paper said he left a wife and several children.
The 2 children I know for is Milly and Thomas Young. I think there were 3 more, I can not find the paper it was on.
Thomas Young was born Jan.27 1815 and died Oct 28 1888. He married Malessia E. Hall Nov.8 1840
Henry wife was Levenia ?
I will try to e-mail you more information if I can get my scanner to work. I am new at this computer.
Anything you can send me on Milly would be great. All I have is who she married. I don`t have her birth date.
Hope to hear from you soon Brenda

> Hi Kari,Did you know that Alfred's brother Harrison married Millie's sister?
> I have her listed as Juliette,same birth date and death date and she married Harrison Kelly, same birth and death as you have on your web site. I also found Mary,daughter of Henry that married Henry Hester grave markers at Ebenezer Bpt. church. She was born Nov.8,1825 and died April 3,1885. Henry was born Nov.15,1822 and died May 20,1904. I haven't found anything on their children or Henry's parents.I think his daddy was William Hester and mother was Susan Crenshaw. (Note from K - this Mary is Mary Finley, not a daughter of Henry Springfield. Henry Hester's second wife was Mary Springfield, daughter of Pinckney Springfield and granddaughter of Henry Springfield.) How are you doing? I have also found 3 living distant cousins.Kathy is down from Sofronia,Thomas Young's daughter.Another Kathy is down Mary Jane Springfield, Thomas young's daughter. Janice is down Pinckney's line.
