John Felix Hensley is my great great grandfathers brother John Henry's 1st son. My GGgrandfather was James H. Hensley. James and John Henry worked with Felix McKittrick in the 1850's and 60's. James joined the Denton Rangers in 1861 with Captain McKittrick and John Henry joined the confederate navy. I believe they floated barges down the red river to New Orleans with cows. They lived in Bowie County/ De Kalb tx in the 1850's till the 1870's. John lived in Genoa Arkansas with his brothers George, Frank, James, Mack, and sisters Martha and Mary. His mother Francis lived there a while as well. I beleive John Henry named John Felix after Captain McKittrick. My Email s
