  • 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.

      Court records on FHL microfilm #1730667 show him as the bastard child of Wilson McMahan. [3]
