  • Notes 
    • As reported by William "Bill" E. Hensley, on January 27, 1998, he thinks that John Hensley is the father of Elizabeth, Nancy,and Abraham. He also thinks that Wilson McMahan is the father of Howard or Archibald and William B. Laurel Branch Baptist Church old record book says: "May 24, 1881 sister Blanche Hensley departed this life this date." This may have been Blanchey Allen Hensley. Blanchey may have been named in honor of her aunt Blanchey Riddle, sister of her mother Lucinda Riddle.

      Description: Hello, I just wanted to let you know that there is more proof that Wilson McMahan fathered one of the children of Blanchey Allen Hensley.
      In February 1841, in Yancey County Court, a case of Bastardy against Wilson McMahan was called, the charge was "Bastardy on the body of Blanchy Hensley". This timing would coincide with the birth of Howard Wilson Hensley (I also think that him having Wilson as a middle name is not a coincidence).
