James HENRY

NOTES: James is the earliest known ancestor. He appears to have been from Halifax County, Virginia. He then moved to York County, South Carolina before the Revolutionary War. Sometime after the war he moved to Logan County, Kentucky were he died. His son Samuel and daughter Mary with their families moved to Livingston County now Crittenden County, Kentucky from York County, South Carolina in about 1803 or 1804.

NOTES: By 1820 there are NO Henry's listed in the census records for Pendleton District, South Carolina.


Agnes MITCHELL

NOTES: Found a note that said she died after James did but I do not know where it came from.


Samuel HENRY Sr.

NOTES: Tradition states that our Samuel Henry was a relative of the famous Patrick Henry who said "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death". I have not been able to prove this, but it is a very strong possiblity.

NOTES: Some family members say that Samuel was married once before he married Mary Bremar. I do not think this is a possiblity. When he married Mary Bremar he would have been around 21 years old so I can't see him marrying before that time. They say this first wifes name was Mary Beale. I think if there had been another wife Rev. Sharp would have probably mentioned her in his history of the Henry family. (10 Dec 2000)

LAND GRANTS: Samuel and his family moved to Livingston County, Kentucky the part that later became Crittenden County, Kentucky from Pendleton District, South Carolina in about 1803. Samuel had obtained a grant of land in Pendleton District in 1784. The land was located near Bradaway Presbyterian Church on Bradaway Creek. Samuel sold his land in Pendleton District in 1803. The deed reads as follows: "I Samuel Henry of Pendleton District, South Caroline for $188.00 paid by D. Tate, sell, release, and convey 110 acres beginning on Benjamin Brimer's old line, then running a west course S. W. to a post oak cornor, bounding on Andrew Tate's land, then running east S. E. to a black oak bounding on the cornor of File's land, then along Benjamin Brimer's old original line to the beginning cornor first mentioned. Said land being orginally granted to Jacob Reid by His Excellency Governor Charles Pinckney at Columbia Oct. 3, 1791, conveyed from him to James Mulwes and from him to the aforesaid Benjamin Brimer and from him sold to Samuel Henry, eyc, " (Deed Book G, p.242) (The original tract of land was purchased from Benjamin Brimer at a later date. Samuel had disposed of his orginial grant earlier.)

SOURCE: A History of the Henry Family by Rev. Eron M. Sharp, Memphis, TN, 1961, rev. 1978, p. 4: Samuel Henry, apparent son of James and Agnes Mitchell Henry was born in VA and lived for a time in York District, SC. He married Mary Braemer. When lands in western SC were opened for settlement after the Revolution, Samuel, along with several Braemer families, settled in the newly formed Pendleton District, SC (now Anderston Co). p. 5: Abbevile, SC platt book: Samuel Henry, citizen, 173 acres above the boundary line, on Mountain Creek, of Big Generostee Creek. Surveyed by Wiliam Lesly, District Surveyor on August 2, 1786, Recorded Oct. 27, 1786. There are several land transactions recorded between 1802 & 1803, in the Anderson Co, SC Court House that mention Samuel Henry, Benjamin Brimer, David Dickey, William Henry, etc.

THE KENTUCKY LAND GRANTS: Volume 1, Part 1, CHAPTER IV GRANTS SOUTH OF GREEN RIVER (1797-1866), THE COUNTIES OF KENTUCKY, page 332 Grantee: HENRY, Samuel --- Acres: 200 --- Book: 29 --- Page: 264 --- Date Survey: 27 August 1803 --- County: Livingston --- Watercourse: Hurricane Creek

LAND RECORDS: Livingston County, Kentucky On July 19, 1805, a survey of 200 acres was made in Livingston County, Kentucky for Samuel Henry, on the waters of Crooked Creek by virtue of a certificate granted to him adjoining the survey made for Obediah Russell, beginning the survey August 27, 1803 by Stephen Sullivan and Thomas Henry. This land and other lands which Samuel Henry obtained on Crooked Creek, is today in Crittenden County, Kentucky, a few miles from Marion.

CHURCH RECORDS: Samuel was an Elder in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, he represented the congregations of Bethany and Salem in Livingston County, Kentucky according to a certificate presented at the Ridge Meeting House April 2, 1805.

DEED RECORDS: Samuel just disappears off the Livingston County, Kentucky records. But it is believed that he moved to Lawrence County, Alabama as there is a deed at Smithland made on June 6, 1821 as follows: "I, Samuel Henry, of Lawrence County, Alabama, do hereby sell, convey etc. to John Alexander of Livingston County, Kentucky, 200 acres of land surveyed Feb 1799 lying and being in the county of Livingston and on the waters of Crooked Creek. Signed by Samuel Henry, Witnessed by: R. McEntire and James Moore." (Since the elder Samuel was the orginal owner of this tract of land, you would think that he would be the one selling it. I have not been able to locate a Will for Samuel Sr. in Livingston County. According to daughter Nancy's court records about this same land in the year 1860, her father Samuel Sr. left Kentucky many years before and gave her the land if she would finish paying for it. Nancy was the only child of Samuel Sr. that stayed in Kentucky the rest all left according to the same record.)

CENSUS RECORDS: In 1790 we find only one HENRY in Pendleton District, South Carolina
Samuel HENRY 1 male 16 years and older, 2 males under 16 years and 4 females, all white, no slaves

CENSUS RECORDS: In 1800 we find 3 HENRY's in Pendleton District, SC There were the following:
Samuel HENRY, with 2 males under 10, 2 males 10 to 16, 1 male 26 to 45, 4 females under 10, 1 female 26 to 45, no slaves -page 43-
John HENRY, with 1 male 10 to 16, 1 male 16 to 26, 1 male over 45, 2 females under 10, 1 female 26 to 45, 2 females over 45, and 8 slaves. -page 50- (Could this be an older brother to Samuel?? Does he have a married son or daughter living with him and possibly a mother-in-law??)
William HENRY, with 2 males under 10, 1 male 26 to 45, 1 female under 10, 1 female 26 to 45, no slaves -page 26 (Could this be the brother to Samuel that we have listed???)

NOTES: This was also find in the 1800 census book of Pendleton County, South Carolina. Samuel Henry was in Pendleton in 1790, and he and John Henry--who was on the Pendleton grand jury 24 June 1791—in 1800 lived in what is now Anderson County. Some at least of this family moved from Wilkes County, North Carolina to Chester District, South Carolina and then to Pendleton, afterward to Jackson and Gwinnett Counties in Georgia, and eventually to Pontotoc County, Mississippi, where in 1850 John Henry, born in North Carolina in 1790, lived with his wife, Bethenia, daughter of Elijah Cornwell who moved from Pendleton to Georgia, where he died. A tract of 640 acres on Great Rocky Creek of Savannah River in what is now Anderson County, South Carolina was granted 8 October 1784 to William Sizeland or Seeland, who sold it to Colonel David Hopkins, a land dealer of Chester District, South Carolina, who in turn sold it, 5 December 1788, to John Henry of Chester District. John was in Pendleton by 1791 and was living there 2 March 1792, when he sold half the tract to Thomas Houston. The Houston family probably also moved down from Chester District, as James Houston had witnessed the 1788 deed there. In 1820, John Henry who married Bethenia Cornwell, was a neighbor of his brothers-in-law, Absalom Stewart and James Diamond, in Gwinnett County, Georgia, subsequently moving west. Also on the same page is the following: General Andrew Pickens was born at Paxtang, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 19 September 1739, his family moved to Lancaster District, South Carolina in 1752, and he served with distinction in the Revolution. He married, 19 March 1765, Rebecca Floride Calhoun aunt of Senator John C. Calhoun, and died in Pendleton District 17 August 1817. His son Andrew Pickens, Jr. (1779-1838), served as Governor of South Carolina, 1816-1818. See Alice Noble Waring, "The Fighting Elder Andrew Pickens" (1962). (This is probably the father or a relative of Jane Pickens who married John Mitchell Henry.)

NOTES: By 1820 there are NO Henry's listed in the census records for Pendleton District, South Carolina.

CENSUS RECORDS: 1810 Livingston County, Kentucky, page #159,
Samuel HENRY 1 male 16 to 26, 1 male over 45, 2 females under 10, 1 female 10 to 16, 1 female over 45 and 1 slave.

CENSUS RECORDS: 1820 Lawrence County, Alabama
Samuel HENRY, with 1 male over 21 years, 1 female over 21 years, 1 female under 21 years and one slave. (In 1820 Samuel should have had 3 girls under the age of 21 years, if this is Samuel Sr.) There is Samuel, William, James & John Henry in 1820 and also a Charles Henry in 1820. Who does Charles belong to??? All in Lawrence County, Alabama.

NOTES: From Betty Wall: A scout led a group from Pendleton District, South Carolina to Livingston County, Kentucky, his name was "Devil" John Jones, and that this same John Jones also migrated later and settled in what is known as Jones Valley, Alabama (named after him), in Jefferson County, Alabama, and that Samuel Henry could have followed him there. As I understand the writing, the writer is relating to Samuel Jr. assuming he died in "Alabama" and that his wife went to Leake County, Mississippi, to live with her daughter, Matilda Henry Harris (this would be Mary Henry). The writer also saying that this Mary Henry went with her daughter Matilda, to Union County, Arkansas, after the death of Matilda's husband Thomas in Leake County, Mississippi and that Mary Henry died in Union County, Arkansas. Who is the writer? (DEC 2000)


Martha DICKEY

NOTES: Could her maiden name possibly have been DICKEY??? Was she a widow woman when she married Samuel??? Was she a widow of someone with the last name of WILSON??? In 1810, she is listed in the over 45 age bracket. If she is really over 45 years old in 1810, then she would have been about 43 with her first child, 45 with her second and 47 with her third. If she is this old then she probably was a widow woman when she married Samuel Sr.

NOTES: Received an email saying that Martha was indeed a DICKEY and was the daughter of John Dickey & Martha McNeely. If this is the Martha that really married Samuel Henry she would have been age 52, 54 & 56 when her 3 daughters were born. It is not impossible but highly unlikely.

Robert DICKEY Sr.

NOTES: Robert and his wife Mary moved shortly after the War with Mary's parents to Logan County, Kentucky sometime during the 1790's. By 1803 they had moved to Livingston County, Kentucky in the part that later became Crittenden County, Kentucky. Robert was first married to Margaret Hillhouse, she apparently died by 1779. Robert also served in the Revolutionary War.


Mary HENRY

Mary was the second wife of Robert Dickey.
