...- Louis, Lewis Thomas HARP Sr.
1. Some family researchers list his name as "Thomas Lewis Harp?" or Louis
And have two Mery-Mary's. One the Mary's are wrong. I did them as one Mary because it was very unlikely that the two was b. and died on the same date. However she could have married twice, and another re searcher's way of recording two marriages? This needs more research.

are hard to come by. Many didn't write and court houses burned often.."Those words, penned by Orville D. Harp, of Gridley, California, well summarize the plight of today's genealogists. Yet, somehow, we find a way to put the stories
of the past together."...
..."James Harp was born 28 April 1828, in Warren County, Tennessee as a son of John and Lucy Harp. Exactly when the Harp family moved into the Northwest Arkansas Ozark Region is not known, but James Harp was in Washington County by 1846 because he was united in marriage with Sarah Clark there on 1 April, of that year, with Robert Garrett, a Justice of the Peace, performing their ceremony. Sarah had been born in Tennessee during 1832 and she was barely fourteen years of age at the time of her marriage. Eight children were born to the union of James and Sarah (Clark) Harp."...

Arkansas Rockhouse Cemetery

Every person on this list of Rockhouse Cemetery in Arkansas is a relative to these lines. I have gone thought each name and most are cousins. In small town such cemetery records ARE VALUABLE and, this phantom exist, even today if we preserve them. Look for the complete list which is not on this page. Their's a book in genealogy library in Salt Lake that I like better.

HARP CIVIL WAR RECORDS

Caution alerts when ordering from Ancestry. com for any special records sold in disks formated. (I paid for military civil war service and census records about 10 years ago. Of course they've change "your rules" of using these materials as they go along. Especially, if you click their programs on the disk such as reg., history, family tree i.e. on the pages. When you get back to the same program (disk) they will have change it where you can't operate the program again. I had to total out the programs in new every time and re load it again.
I really hate do business with all the genealogical service out there. You spend a lot of money to have fixes inside each program to dislodge them whenever they want you to buy in again.
I bought Paf Pal too but you can't copy and paste in any the their programs. And their licenses have a short expiration date for the money, I bought into. You'll have to buy a newer version of it ever so often. My new computer will not even take their old Paf Pal disk. Now every thing is bought on line and they will change the rules and have to update it yadda, yadda, yadda. Theirs lots of problems with this kind of explorations....
Note: I believe its the first John on this record. (...And their are many John's on this disk!) That is the John Harp in our lines here. It says he was a Senior and that's about the right age group.






The Godard's, Wiley, Harp Lines



http://www.vaughanpioneers.freeservers.com/vaughanphotos.htm More Vaughan Photos





YOU MAY WONDER WHERE I GET ALL MY (PAID FOR ... & OWNED) PHOTO'S. I paid good sum of money for most of my photos that came on a CD from another genealogist who sells them. These pictures were the first ones that I started with and now own. I bought them because I had no photo's at the time on much of my lines. No one really owns published or sold photo's. (We all (cousins.) Their was no copywriters on my photo CD disks, or I would not have bought them. I now have had others who has given me more of the same photo's that I don't really need. So they are out there and flourishing. Many others in this line bought them... same reasons? I never thought of asking Davis where he got them because he was the genealogist who owned them and their rights to resale. He's worked on the lines for many years.
As an artist I know you can change the presentation of a work, or photos and I do on both.

After all how would all the search engines operating on the Internet who makes money using our photo's and we borrowing (images) for blogs would be in big trouble with law suits. Be careful who you unload the use of your Internet photo to, because they rip them off your computer programs and your left with nothing on yours. "Google's Picasa"...is one. They re-sale them for use of the storage place for your photos i.e. Since my computer crashed so many times this maybe worth it. Don't label who they are...the photo will be hard to sell unless their kin yadda, yadda, yadda...

Genealogy Site are not FREE, FAKE

All genealogy sites that say they're FREE ...are, of course not! I'm so tired continually being LED on "wild goose chases" that I now have a small little book that save me a lot of time clicking on their web code time and again, at the bottom of their ads, to go visit. They change business titles and are changing them periodically so you do have to record the site again before your get suck in again. I'm all for genealogy business but not deceptive practices involved. If the government does it so are the people...Who's the government?
Photo: Vaughan Llynk
The Mormon Church has "free" conglomerate site too that lead to its family history i..e..
The have ads using Ancestral . com or (ACOM, De Va71, etc.) tinker symbol
I have a lot of grips about the antique PAF program. Paf program originated from "Ancestral Quest." Why these programs have no place to cut, copy, and paste i.e. YOUR data for another page to put in your e-mail or blog is a marketing issue. I worked for years in the Church genealogy Library's and know this programs problems. It's very Archaic!
I was told not to do this site, but I reminded the library worker they said to blog that very month from her authority. Hello!
I gotta voice one more thing before I close. Yesterday I tried to make a list in this ignorant PAF program (it's free and should stay that way). One of its KNOW IT ALL MALE's, who work in the church library who said it was like doing algebra. Who know algebra? It has bracket, arrows and, or-and, then it get real complicated when you see the choices under what you check which make no sense at all.
Why should we genealogist give any site free genealogy to resale. Can you get in and use their sites, correct the new information's you've discovered, in a note even, the gall to sell it back to us! Of course unless your now buying in...some of us don't have the funds.
For you die hard who continue to use pay toilets and pay for water after man's polluted it! And never voice objections...shame on you. You deserve it. Most use other adrenals to fight for a your basic causes.
I have had a lot of web sites I've traced back on my site meter and they sell my stuff. I don't mind any one in my line using the pages that refer to their personal genealogy. What I mind is the commercial one's using it.
However, even they are our devil's advocate. Get it? Thank You for all your comment this year. It helps our all families here getting it done more correctly. (Remember...Your genealogy doesn't just belong to you...many cousins families pass through it)
The number one use of the Internet is genealogy. You'd thing rich google could give us a better "format" for this sort of work. They are number one in programing. I think they should come up with blogs designed for genealogist.
I've been in the hospital for 9 months including rehabilitation, and nursing care. That was truly hell and I glad I'm back at this again. Thank you for putting up with my mistakes and coming to Genealogy Connections... May God grant you peace and health in your home this season.

NOTE ... GOOGLE REMOVE ALL MY FREE SITE OFF THIS PAGE...AFTER ALL THEY CAN'T MAKE MONEY ON THESE SITES. THE ADS ON THE SIDES ARE FEE SITES...

Notes
MARRIAGE
1. This certifies that T.J. Harp and Isabel Gilbert were united in the Holy bonds of Matrimony at Thomas Henderson’s
on the 26 day if Jan 1861. In the presence of: James Henderson and Mary Huffman." Maybe one side or another a
family member. Son? Isabelle was born 1 Jan 1838.
2. Mattie Smith says they were married 15 Apr 1861? (after the children were born?)
HUSBAND
Thomas L. HARP
1. AFN:118J-JBX,From Ancestral File (TM), data as of 2 January 1996. This file says he was born abt 1804?
2. Thomas (L., or T.,or, J. ?) HARP. Born in NC? not Tennessee. (Jefferson, middle name?)
3. BASIC: Reference from the book, CARROLL CO. FAMILIES: THESE WERE THE FIRST, Carroll Co., AR 1991
editor/compiler Jim Lair. (Lib # 976.717 D3L) S.L. Ut. Family Historical Center.
"Thomas (J.) Harp, who was born 4 July 1828, (the year doesn't fit with birth order of other siblings)...in Overton Co.,
TN (not NC) was united in marriage with (1) Celia Harp, (2) Rhoda Wright and (3) Isabell Gilbert, died 31 May 1910
and was interred in the Clifty Cemetery--"
NOTE: The b. of 1828 bothers me because it doesn't fit the sibling order (do the have this order?) . Maybe everyone's
copying the same mistake and passing it on. Their are many books written on the Harp's and their lines using the same
sources. However, more research has to be done here. I cannot accept all of this yet ...the1828.

Harp Descendants

Harp's Descendants
Generation No. 1
1. OUR UNKOWN 2 HARP, OLDEST UNKOWN1) was born Bet. 1730 - 1740, and died 1767 in Granville Co. NC. He married SARAH UNKNOWN Abt. 1760 in NC ?. (The writer of this page is anonymous)
Notes for UNKOWN HARP ??:
There was a
Henry Harp
transported to VA. in 1658. There was also a Henry in Johnson Co. 1766. Could there be a connection.?
Guestion: There was our Unkown (died 1768 ) and a Thomas about the same age, that had records together in Granville Co.1771. then Thomas had a Jr. would be about the age of our John b. 1769. We do not know Thomas's father. Our John m. Mary Lewis 1778 and Thomas Jr m. Elizabeth Lewis 3 Nov 1778. We do not know the father of James m. Sarah Jordon 1779, William m.
Sally(Sarah) Stanton 1787, and Simon m. Lucy Ham 1788. Thomas #l died before 1780 and Ann had a family, we think Thomas#1.
When they went to Overton Co. Wm, Sampson, Burton and Wm Jr. on one side of the creek and with John, Beverly and John Jr. the other side had land records together. Who do they belong to?
Johnston Co. NC. Is: So have for Love and Good will
William Earp to Grandson Edward Harp. About 1769. So about then is when they started changing their name. If they ever did. Still have to check these older files in Johnston Co. NC.
The Earps were from VA. and MD originally and if I can keep tracing them back some Earp Genealogists think we are from John Earp and on back to England and Thomas Earp England 1600's. Before They were in Johnston Co. they were in Northampton Co. NC where they were same names only Earp.
Earlier records in Johnson Co. NC Show Emanuel, Luke, Edward, and Henry all dealing with land before 1766.
Tax records show 1769 Thomas Harp 2 whites and Merica Harp 2 whites. 1771 was Luke Harp 2 whites, and 1780 was a John Harp, 250 acres, Thomas Harp, Sr. 102 acres,
Thomas Jr.1 free pole and Samson Harp l free pole. This is the second time the papers point to Thomas Jr and Sampson being brothers and sons of Thomas. the other is a land record.
I have pay vouchers for John Harp 1782, Thomas Harp 1781, and Luke Harp 1782 for the Rev. War. Hillsborough auditors office, North Carolina. Also a Joseph with 2 vouchers Warrington, Hillsborough
NC. in 1783. .
*History of Genealogist of Old Granville Co. NC 1746-1800
Sarah Harp "the Elder", "SINGLE WOMAN OF GRANVILLE CO." to John Harp, "aged about six years old" to
Gemime Harp, and to Sarah Harp "Jun'r" sale, Aug. 3 1767. goods and valuables including a branded horse. (She was evidently a mother of these children, although such descriptive language is not used)
The
John Harp that married Mary Lewis has to be this John. (no other John's) There is a marriage record of Arps? Sarah (Jr) to Allan Bryan 1784. This could be our Sarah Jr. right age?
One land
record she signed in 1790 as Sarah Harp. Also a Gemima Harp to James Randolph 1813 but that is to late so she could have been one of the other Harps boys girl. We have a Gemima as a daughter of Tolbert Harp which would be a Granddaughter of John Jr.
Children of this HARP and SARAH UNKNOWN are:
2. i. JOHN HARP 3 SR., b. 1760; d. Bet. 1812 - 1818, Overton Co. Tn..
ii. GEMIMA HARP, b. Abt. 1763.
Notes for GEMIMA HARP:
This Gemima is a sister to John. One land record has a Bobbitt signing a land record with John selling and Sarah Harp also a witness. We think this is land from their father. Gemima could be dead or something. Hardy, John Jr.'s son named his daughter Gemima and a son Geremia
iii. SARAH (JR) HARP, b. Abt. 1766, Granville Co. NC; m. ALLAN BRYAN, 1784, Granville Co. NC.

Notes for JOHN HARP SR.:
1785 John sold land to Thomas in Granville Co. NC. and Thomas Jr and Sampson signed as witnesses. Probable sons of Thomas Sr.
1811 was land Record in Overton Co. TN. between Wm Sr. and Burton with John Harp Sr. and Beverly signing due to land with no fence between John Sr. and
Wm.'s land.
1812 there are land records in Overton Co. TN. Burton Harp was selling
land to David Green (45 Acres), including the plantation where Sampson Harp Sr. now lives. It shows that Wm Harp Sr was on one Line and John Harp Sr. on another line. This had no fence between the two so John Harp Sr., Beverly, John Jr. Sampson Sr., William Sr. and William Jr.,Burton Harp and Isum Johnson all had to sign the land record. The land joined, showing John with land next to Wm.
*1819 land record which was Wm's Sr. shows Johns Sr. Desc. There is a Terry, Wm. Sr and Jr. and Tyre should be Wm Sr. Sons, plus Isham Johnson (buyer).

Children:
1. Alford m. Lizzie Wesmonan
2. Betsy m. Jesse Shitley

Reminiscent History of the Ozarks Region by Goodspeed's pub. 1894, we find a reference to Hardy Harp, in the biography of William H. Paine, b. in Warren Co., TN, in 1830 son of Larkin and Rebecca Huddleston Paine. Excerpts from this bio: "In 1848, Mr. Paine was married in Madison Co., Ark. to Miss Almira Harp, native of Warren Co., TN., daughter of Hardy and Ruth A. Harp; the former (Hardy) dying in TN and the later in Ark." (If Hardy died in TN. he had returned to TN. after the 1840 census was taken)

Goodspeeds History of Northwest Arkansas, published 1889 tells "Among the first to arrive in 1832, William Clark settled on Drakes Creek, Beverly Harp, a Christian preacher, located at the head of
Cherry Creek that same year. Other articles say he was there in 1824.

He later moved to "Healing Springs" now known as Eureka Springs.
According to the land records in Overton Co. TN. it has Beverly

This is from Johnnie Cowart, ggggranddaughter of Beverly. She has a death cert. of Wm. J. stating Beverly as his father and Sarah as his mother.
William J. was also a minister.
4. JOHN C.HARP4 JR. (JOHN HARP3 SR., OUR UNKOWN2 HARP ??, OLDEST UNKOWN1) was born 1790 in Granville, N.C., and died Aft. 1870 in Madison Co. AR.. He married LOUISE (LUCY) VAUGHAN 1820, daughter of WILLIAM VAUGHAN and FEREBY BENTON. She was born 1795 in TN, and died Abt. 1861 in Madison Co. AR..
Notes for JOHN C.HARP JR.:
There is no record that I have found that John is a Lewis. On the applications for Indian rights Hardy's daughter had John C (could be an O ) On another from Nancy Jane (Absolum's wife)
it is a C. and so is my Uncle John C. and Uncle John was Calvin. So I think it is C.
On The applications also show John having married Louise Vaughan and her mother was Fairaby Benton Vaughan.
We do have census 1830, John 30-40, 1840, John 40-50. Which makes John b. 1790 (60) as the 1850 census states. This would make Lucy b. 1795.
The Army papers states that Lewis (John's son) was b. in Warren Co. TN 1826. Other records of land including John in Warren Co. TN under Beverly and Hardy. Show he was at the foot of Cumberland Mtn. Warren Co. Plat Book 1824-27 Vol 1by Nora Williams. Surveyed for Hardy Harp 50 acres on the waters of Rocky River in the Hickory cove, near the NE corner of a 25 acre entry made in the name of Beverly Harp, a line of a 14 acre survey a line of a 45 acre survey, a line of 10 acre survey of John Harp's foot of Cumberland Mountain, including said Hardy & John Harp's improvement. Surveyed 1 Oct 1825. John Harp & Wm. Evans, CC Sam Worthington, D.S.
John was living with a daughter Lucy Irene (Arena) (Mrs. James Henderson) when he died. He had come from Warren Co. TN. to Washington Co. Ar. by 1829 according to the Goodspeed History. He also shows in the history in Madison Co. Ar. in 1832 in Vaughan Valley (Twp 17N Rg 27W.)
I have copies of land records in both Washington and Madison Co. AR 40 acres in Washington Co. was sold 1835. 80 acres was sold 1852 to James Mayfield. I saw this land it was beautiful. East and a
little south of Springdale close to the Madison Co. line. Some of the Mayfield's still live in that area.
80 acres was bought in 1859 and 160 was sold all in one transaction in 1860 which included the first 80 acres. This land was in Madison Co. All these papers were signed by both John and Lucy
with Daniel Vaughan a witness on one paper and William Harp witness on another.
On Mar. 1, 1862 John sold land in Washington Co. W 1/4 SE 1/4 Sec 15 TWP N. 17 N of Range 31. He was the only one to sign this transaction so we know Lucy died between 1860-1870 so now we can put her death about 1861.
Notes for LOUISE (LUCY) VAUGHAN:
Louise's name was on her daughter Lucinda (Harp) Clarks death certificate. father was John and Mother was Louise Vaughan.
I have Indian Application records from Nancy Jane Harp wife of Absolum, showing Lucy Vaughan as a daughter of William and Fereby Vaughan. Benjamin Vaughn also put verification to the same and he had Fereby Vaughan, daughter of Fereby Benton whose maiden name was Fereby Looney a Cherokee woman.
This record also has Absolum as the son of John and Lucy (Vaughan) Harp.
Also was a letter of Ardemia (Harp) Daniels daughter of Absolum, saying Hardy Harp's wife was Sarah E. Clemens, a sister to our Nancy Jane Clemens This proves our line to John Harp.

In 1870 Nancy Jane, Absolum (younger), Sarah E. were all in Wilson Co., KS. Verdigris Twp. P.O. Coyville. I haven't checked Wilson Co. Records but I have a land record in Woodson Co. 1883 where Absolum and Loucretia got a loan for 160 acres, close to uncle Absolum.. There were also courthouse records where he had 2 lots in Yates Center 1885-1886. In 1891 there was a record selling Lots with his address Paola Co. Miami, KS.

KS.
Notes for ABSOLUM A.(APPS OR DOC) HARP:
Photo: Sarah (Harp) Henley always said she was 1/16 Indian. Assuming this, Absolum was 1/8 and his mother Louisa(Lucy) Vaughan was 1/4 and Fair-a-bee was 1/2. Which should be right according to the Vaughan connection.
According to the 1880 census record, William was born in MO., making Absolum leave Arkansas before 1856. Sarah was born in Bates Co. MO.
They were in Barry Co. in 1860 (Census).
Lloyd Daniel wrote in his Kansas History: him and his neighbors were run out of Linn Co., KS.(Across the line from Bates Co. MO.) with crops standing. This would have been before 1860 as they were all in Barry Co. by 1860 as Lloyd and Ardemea were married in Barry Co. Absolum could have been a neighbor just across the KS & MO. line in Bates Co.
Absolum was registered in the MO. Home Guard, Co. D. Stone Co. They must have lived close to the county line here also. He was a private and enrolled 6 June 1861 and was discharged 15 Nov. 1861.
He was 5'6" tall and weighed 144 at 69 years old. Glen Dale Henley has the original discharge papers.
When Grandma (Sarah Elizabeth) was 6, the family came to Kansas (1864). In 1866, Absolum was on the mini jury in Wilson Co. This was also close to the county line as a little later the moved the Co. line
and they then lived in Woodson Co.
In an article by James Harpe Harris stated the Harp's were breeders of fine racing horses and fox hound.
Zoe Henley Wilson told of Grandpa Absolum having lots of dogs. A seashell her Mother had was used to call dogs. She thinks it was in the Harp family first. A bottle (flask) Zoe had was a bottle Apps took with him to help heal people. It was Herbs. Ella Mae has it.
According to Sarah, Apps was 1/8 Cherokee Indian. In 1891 he went to OK. in hopes of getting Indian land. On a 1893 census of OK. he had 40 acres and each of his boys had a few acres. The Indian headquarters told me that census was taken to show who had moved to OK. by 1889.
These people were entitled to the Indian land upon Indian proof. We were 4 years short.
George and Loid (Lloyd?) Blevins were also on the 1893 census of OK.
The Frank Henley family also went to OK. but came back. A picture in the back was taken right after they returned. Everyone got sick on the water in Skiatook ,OK.
Nancy came back to Kansas with Sarah and Frank Henley about that time and stayed till she died.

Notes for NANCY JANE CLEMMONS:
Nancy Jane a daughter of Jesse who in 1830 lived close to John Harp. The census of 1830 had Jesse about 34 (1794) with 2 girls under 5. #1 Nancy Jane was 4 (1826) in TN. at that time. #2Sarah Elizabeth was 6 (1824) in 1830. She m. Hardy Harp.
Then 1850 census of Madison Co. AR. was Elizabeth (Betsy) 50 and #3 James 20 b. AL. and #4 John 18 b. AR. Making Jessie and Elizabeth unkown having 4 children.
On the 1860 census of Barry Co. MO., real close to Absolum, was James and his family with Elizabeth living with them. She was b. 1794 NC. James and his family came to Woodson Co. KS. Eliz. wasn't with them. They lived within a mile of Grandma (Sarah Harp Henley)
Rebecca (James's daughter born 1858) was 15 (1873). She married John E. Daniel. She was a cousin to Sarah (Harp) Henley.
All the Aunts said Mark Twain was a cousin. John Marshall Clemens was father of Mark Twain. His people and other Clemens were in Warren Co. TN. in 1830 same as some of the Harps. I plan on searching this more.

Notes for SARAH ELIZABETH HARP:
The Harp family came to Kansas in 1864 from Barry Co. Mo.
Grandma Henley was well liked and know all over the Big Sandy area as Aunt Sis.
Zoe told stories that Grandma Sarah and their family went to White river area (probably southern Mo.) to buy cows. They drove them to Kansas on foot.
Grandpa Henley and Aunt Lela died the same day so Uncle Curt moved in with Grandma.
Floyd said Grandma told about sending the dogs up what was then called Harp Hallow, just above their home. They came back bringing deer. The Harp's would shoot them and that was their meat. They lived just south of Big Sandy school right near the Woodson and Wilson Co. line.
Grandma was a very sweet little lady. She was liked by all. You can tell this by the number that came to her birthday party. Article in back of this book. She was a good cook. I can remember her always cooking or out with the chickens and garden. She would kill a chicken and we had it that day for dinner. Of course there was no iceboxes in those days.
Ella Mae remembers the hollyhocks, garden and chickens. Also a red stone rock made into a game near the kitchen steps, little yellow sticky roses, and gooseberries.
Grandma made jelly out of anything wild. I can remember her simmering Apple peelings from a pie and making Jelly.
Floyd told about my Dad (Wm Wilson)and his Dad (Uncle Curt) picking a basket of wild grapes. They were thick on the creek. They were going to make wine, but Grandma had them in jelly by the time
they came back. Uncle Curt and Daddy got more and made their drink.
Ella Mae also tells about Grandma's pantry and wanting a piece of her good chocolate cake with white icing, but knew she would get into trouble. Cecil told her to cut a thin piece clear across the pan and Grandma wouldn't know. It worked.
Ella Mae also remembers the long lane to the house and the path to river. She wondered how her mother ever got down there to ice skate. Of course, Zoe was raised in this house and Marie was born in
this house.
Uncle Curt told me they moved the house to near Coyville, KS. and when they tore it down it was all made of walnut. It was a small 3 room house with a curtain between beds in the bed room. Now all our
grandchildren have to have a bedroom of their own.

Notes for FRANCIS MITCHEL HENLEY:
The Henley family came from Dade Co Mo in 1857 to Humbolt, KS. then moved to Woodson Co. to do farming. Francis stayed there and we still have cousins in the area.
A story handed down has Francis courting Sarah and another man wanted her hand. He called for a duel with Grandpa, but he didn't show up, giving Grandpa and open field.
In the Toronto Republican newspaper was the following: 25 Years Ago items taken from the Yates Center News. Oct. 3 1913.
Frank Henly was in town Saturday carrying around a harness tug and looking for the editor. He merely wished to pay his subscription, however. Frank had just sold over $l000 worth of cattle and hogs and said if he could sell two or three teams of horses and mules he'd be dad-binged if he didn't spend the winter in Arkansas.
Frank belonged to the Grange close to where he lived and also to the Knights of Pythais in Yates Center.
There are pictures in the back showing different times the Henley family hayed for other people with large operations.

Notes for SUSIE MAY HENLEY:
Aunt May was a joy to be around. The time I remember most was in l945 when Duane went overseas, Ella Mae and I were headed home and went by to see everyone in eastern Kansas. Aunt May went to the smokehouse for some ham and made ham and gravy. She made everything taste good.
When they were in Midian 1918, Aunt May cooked for some of the boys working in the oil fields.
Aunt May met Uncle George at a dance in Toronto. He had started to California with a friend and saw May and that was as far as he went.
George brought Aunt May a little bouquet of field flowers once when Ada was there.
On Sunday Oct 15, 1899, Mr. George W. Robison and May Henley were united in marriage at the residence of the bride's parents', Mr.& Mrs. F.M. Henley, in Belmont township, Elder G.H. Lamb, of the Christian Church at this place, officiating.
About 50 of the neighbors and friends of the families were present as guests of the occasion. A most excellent dinner was served immediately after the marriage ceremony. The bride is the eldest daughter of our esteemed friend, F.M. Henley and was born and raised in Woodson Co. The groom is a prosperous young farmer from Linn Co. and is also a native of Kansas.
They were the recipients of many useful and valuable presents from their many friends, and start out in life under the most favorable circumstances. (from George Robison, a grandson)

Notes for FANNIE PEARL HENLEY:
Ada tells about Aunt Fannie and Nancy (Clemmens) Harp sleeping together when she was a little girl. Grandma would have her wear a little cap on her head to keep her hair pretty.
They were farmers.
Fannie made the best homemade ice cream and angel food cake.
A story about Fannie was when Bill got their first car, a 1926 Model T. Sometime later they were going up a hill south of their place. At the top it was steep. Bill wasn't a good driver and put on the clutch. The car started rolling backward and Fammie jumped out. When Bill looked back he had run over her leg fortunatley only her an ego was damaged.

He was in only 3 months and was in the hospital with the flu when the war was over. War records show him as being 5'6" tall, black hair, brown eyes, and medium complexion. We considered him to be dark complected. He had no white hair when he died at 63.
He was living at Meade, KS. but was visiting his daughter Marie when he became ill.
He worked in the oil field in Indiana when he was 16 years old. He came to ElDorado, KS. after his Uncle Emet Ralston and Uncle Cliff Ralston wrote telling him there was plenty of work in Kansas. This was about 1916. He worked in the oil field all his life as a driller and Supt. for Phillips Oil Co. near ElDorado and Lost Springs,KS. The last company was Skelly Oil Co. for 25 years. He was a district Supt.
He was an avid fisherman and hunter. He always had a bird dog and was known to double on quail many times. It was said that he could killed 2 birds at one shot.
