I am through the Silver line in Yancey and North Georgia. I do not know if this will help. Hickman Hensley married my GGGG Aunt Nancy Silver, sister of my GGG grandfather Greenberry Jr son of John Jackson Silver of Yancey to N. Ga. They had a son Andrew Jackson Hensley in Yancey. He had a son Jasper Taylor Hensley in the 1870's. However, by this time Andrew Jackson was living in Gilmer Co. Ga. More than likely Hickman E. Hensley is a brother in your line and Jasper is a family name. My Silver great grandparents named their first son Jasper Taylor Silver for the Jasper Hensley line. I have not pursued the Hensley line as they are not blood kin except through the children of Nancy and Hickman.I do have some data on the Hensleys of Yancey.
