This will be a short one since it is a work in progress. It is great to meet you William Hendry/Henry who was born in 1760-64 in Frederick, Virginia and moved on to Greene County, Tennessee. I am thrilled to meet one of your slaves named Roseann, who was born about 1790, also in Frederick, Virginia. You and Roseann are now taking your position as my 4th great grandparents on my paternal side. and other children by your wives. You are an interesting man, involved in plenty of things and married several times . Ut Oh, here comes some more Europeans. You had two children from Roseann. Your two children by Rosann is a son, John Henry/Henry and your daughter is Delphia Hendry/Henry.

I can see your line back a few more generations, but I am going forward first and then back. Now William, what did you do with your son John Henry who was born about 1811 in Frederick, Virginia? I will analyze your will. I know John married Ester who was born about 1811 (unknown last name). I have lots of questions; was John born as slave like his sister Delphia, of course he did and did he get freed as well? One of John’s children is Rose Henry. I am assuming you named after your mother. Well your daughter Rose Henry, is how you are coming down my line. Rose married John McCorkle and one of their children was Nellie. Nellie McCorkle is my great grandmother who married William Michael Murphy and the parents of William Columbus Murphy, my father’s father. Nellie also married Henry Giles out of North Carolina. Whew!
