  • Notes 
    • !CHILDREN: According to Martha J. Vanhoy Henley's obituary in 1990, they had
      ten children. From census records, etc. I have only found seven. Probably
      the three missing died very young or at birth.

      !DEATH OF JAMES H. HENLEY (1826-1866) - apparently just after the Civil War, and
      I can find no record of him being a soldier, he was killed by bushwhackers. He
      would have been a northern sympathizer. He was supposed to have been hidden
      out away from home, and his son or sons went down the middle of a creek to take
      him food, and found him dead. He had sold all his land in Jasper Co., MO and
      had recently purchased some land in Henry Co. MO so he probably died in Henry
      Co., MO - but I am not sure.
