Re: Henry/Simmons, Cherokee Co., TX
I am related to the Henry's through Alfred Henry and his second wife Mary Murphy from Cherokee County Texas. My mom's second cousin is also related to him through her mothers and her fathers side. Penelope Ann Henry and Asa Simmons are her ancestors. She has the original Marriage license of them. They were married in Smith County Texas. I am also related to Alfred Henry on my mom's mothers and fathers side. My grandparents, grandmothers Amanda Henry, and Martha Henry were sisters. So I guess that made my grandparents Second cousins or something like that. I was at the Cherokee County courthouse and was looking for the original Marriage certificates of Alfred Henry and Mary Murphy, and also the one of him and Martha Portwood who he married after Mary Murphy died. Martha was his third wife. But someone else had already been there and picked up the original of both of them. I'd like to know if anyone on line is the one who picked up the originals as I would like to have a copy of the original. I know that know one here that is related to Alfred and Mary Murphy are researching the family except me so I don't know who would pick it up.
