Their father was Orrie Benjamin Hensley b 21 Jan 1884 to Thomas Jefferson & Alice (Sparks)Hensley in Humbolt, Richardson Co., NE. His parents latter divorced and Alice married Wm Sutter who died sometime before 1910. Orrie's Mother now known as Alice Sparks lived with her son in 1910-1920 In Maywood, Frontier County. Alice moved to Sutherland, and Orriee & family moved to Noth Platte, NE and were still living there with both children in 1930.
