I don't know if there is any connection, Lisa. My great-grandfather is James Henchey b.ca. 1820 in Ireland - maybe Clare, maybe Cork. We don't have any records. We know that in 1856 they were in Illinois because my great aunt Hannorah was born. We were always told that Hinchey was a County Clare form of Hennessy, and of course all the O's apply. James was married to Elizabeth Noonan who may have been from County Limerick. They may have been married in the USA. Not having any records is sure a problem. I don't know if this info will tweak anything, but I always explore anything that I find. Good Luck!
