Re: Henry Family from Tennessee (JOSEPH)
That is the problem for me right now.I have no parents for him anywhere.Someone online showed him with the Hugh and Phoebe family.
From the census readings both of his parents were born in North Carolina.That is all I know of his parentage.I have no knowledge of any siblings either.
I wondered about the Hugh based on the fact of his childrens names.Pure speculation however.

What type of information do you have on the Joseph & Dorcas family?
John was positively born on July 3, 1817 in TN as his tombstone lists his birth and census has his death.I've looked everywhere in Illinois for a death cert for him and have yet to find one.I've been to courthouses in Coles, Cumberland, Jasper and called Piatt and Douglas all to no avail.I did not look at Crawford because his wife is buried in Newton and the stone lists his birth but not death.
Please let me know where I need to look for confirmation of any link to ancestry.This is my ggggrandfather and I've been searching for him for years now.Elusive man!
Thank you for replying, I do appreciate it very much.
