Re: Family tie to Patrick Henry's family?
You seem to be quite knowledgable about the Henry Family.Hoping you can help us.
To date, the research I have done re: my husband's great-great grandfather, Isaac R. Henry, SUGGESTS a link to Patrick Henry.If this link is accurate, Isaac would be Patrick's great grandson.
Thus far, evidence shows a strong possibility that "our" Isaac is the son of Isaac Henry b. 1778 who is "supposed" to be the son of John D. Henry b. 1757 to Patrick and Sarah.This is based on the family trees of other researchers I have been in communcation with.
In spite of our intensive and extensive efforts, we are unable to obtain any substantial evidence of "our" Isaac's parents and heritage.
"Our" Isaac was a strong patriot in his own right, and we are quite proud of his accomplishments.It is important to us that we do not carelessly link him to a set of parents - we want to be as accurate as we can be.
Do you have access to verifiable information about an Isaac R Henry born on 9 Jan 1811 in Franklin County, TN who went on to Texas in 1835?
Any leads will be appreciated.
