I directly descended from an Elcana Hensley and a Sarah Head. Their son, Elcana Delaney Hensley, was born 7/30/1814. He married Mary Elizabeth Gates (b 7/28/1828)
on 11/15/1845 in Kirksville, Adair co., Mo. Mary Elizabeth was born in Pikes Co, MO. They had eight children one of whom, William (10/17/1854), was born in Kirksville, Mo. William married Hanna Hunsaker (b 8.17.1864) who was born and married in Adair co. Mo. They had five children one of whom,
Leona b 9/25/1883, was born Kirksville, Mo. Leona was my gg
grandmother. I am interested in learning more about the Hensleys. The information I have was maintained in family ledgers during the 19th century. In 1975 my grandmother sent what information and pictures she had to be included in a book called "Abel Gates, His Descendents. His
Ancestors". My grandmother received a copy of the book. I now have the book in my library.
I would appreciate any help you could give me.
