Re: Henry Family from Tennessee
I know we have 'spoke' before on this subject, and I really don't mean to be a pest....but I find it hard to believe that with all your studying of the Henry families in the surrounding counties of Sevier, that you have no info on MY Henry's. Katherine (Catherine) Henry Maples, was the daughter of a William 'Billy' Henry. We are not definite on the mother's name (Katherine claimed it to be Elizabeth Mae James--this may have been a step-mother). There is a BIG scandal surrounding Katherine and I'm sure that is why I am having a hard time finding any info on this family. Embarassments die hard in the south, don't they? Even 100+ years after the fact. Anyway, I have a tax receipt made out to Catherinefor 2 1/2 acres in District 22, Knox Co., TN.
Backtracking through the census, it appears Katherine went from Blount to Sevier (1880--with 3 children and lists herself as widow) to Knox counties, where she died and is buried in Thorn Grove Cemetery next to her son, Walter and his wife. We also know that Katherine had a baby brother, Anderson, who would walk across county lines to visit her. Does any of this sound familiar?
I don't mean to be a pest...this is just maiking me grey before my time...LOL
