Notes


William HENRY

NOTES: From Betty Wall: A scout led a group from Pendleton District, South Carolina to Livingston county, Kentucky, was named "Devil" John Jones, and that this 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)

NOTES: From Bill King: This was in an old letter written about 1877, about James Alford Babb and Mary Amanda Henry. Your grandmother was a Henry. Daughter of Samuel Henry. I believe his name was Sam. He lived in Madison County, Miss - on the old Roberson road, he kept a big hotel for years to take in travelers as there was as you know no R. R. in them days. He lived near the town of Sheron, or where that town now stands. Grandmother Babb had three brothers & four sisters. The brothers were John, Samuel and Scion. The sisters were Linda & Tilda, they were twins, Elizabeth, Grace & Adeline. Grandma's was Mary. (March 2001)

NOTES: Samuel Henry and Mary Quinton have been linked as the possible parents of at least 9 children. Two of whom were twins named Matilda and Malinda that were born in March 1811 the same year that Samuel and Mary were married. We have since found more information that leads us to believe that the parents may really be William Henry and Mary McGaughey of Tennessee and Alabama. Therefore I am unlinking all the children of Samuel and Mary and putting them with William and Mary. This means I have no known children for Samuel and Mary at this time. (27 Aug 2001)


Mary MCGAUGHEY

NOTES: In 1850 there is a Mary Henry age 66 born in Tennessee living with Matilda Henry and her husband Thomas Harris. That would make Mary born about 1784. But we know that the Mary Quinton that married Samuel Henry Jr. was under 21 years of age when she married because her father gave consent for the marriage. Maybe who ever gave the info for her age to the census taker did not know how old she was and just guessed. There would have been no need for her father's permission if she was older then 21 at the time of her marriage. Mary was not listed with Matilda in 1860, but in 1870 she is again listed with Matilda and Thomas and is 88 years old which would make her born in 1782 instead of 1784 as the 1850 said. I think if she is Matilda's mother that who ever is giving the info just does not know how old she really is. (6 Jan 2001)

NOTES: According to the court documents in Crittenden County, Kentucky in 1860, Samuel Jr. had left many years previously and his sister Nancy did not know when or if he was deceased. Now if the Mary Henry that is living with Matilda in 1850 is indeed Samuel Jr.'s wife and Matilda's mother then he had apparently died before 1850 or was gone somewhere. Samuel would be closed to 70 years old in 1850, so I can't see him wandering around to far from home if he was indeed still alive. (10 Dec 2000)

NOTES: According to McGaughey records Mary was the mother of 11 children but no one seems to know any of their names.
