John R. Henry, Sr/John R. Henry Jr., Etc

I am trying to get in contact with any relatives of these Henry's who were in Spencer Co., KY. I recently read an article from The History of Spencer County, Kentucky that mentioned this group fo Henry's and the Andrew Allen family that I am interested in.

It states that John R. Henry, Sr. came to Spencer Co.,Ky in 1825 and purchased a large tract on Brashears Creek. It states that John Sr. had seven children,four of them being listed as follows: James who married a Nancy Jane Allen, John Jr., who married Eliza Allen, both of these girls being daughters of Andrew Allen Jr. Lucy Ann who married a Sandford Thurman, & David who married a Hannah Brown, daughter of Ralph Brown.

It went on to state that all Henry families in Spencer Co., KY descend from these three sons.

I have a John R. Henry, who married Tabitha Henry, the daughter of Joseph Henry and Nancy Martin. Joseph & Nancy were married in Spencer Co.,KY in 1832.There was also a John Henry who married a Caroline Hatfield, daughter of William & Elizabeth Hatfield.

There is a Samuel Henry, Sr. who had a Samuel Jr. who married a Tabitha Walker. Tabitha Walker's father was Gideon Walker.
All these people listed above, and below, are thought to have come from Spencer Co., Ky.

On the 1840 Census Samuel Henry, Sr (Samuel Sr., was in the 60-70 years age group)& family had moved to Daviess Co., KY. In 1850, Joseph & Nancy's family, Samuel Jr. and his wife, Tabitha, and John R. Henry Jr.& family were all listed in Ohio Co., KY.
John & Caroline were in Daviess Co., KY.

I'm looking for anyone who may be able to help me sort out all these John's, Joseph's, , Samuel's in this family. If you have any info you can also contact me at

Thanks for any help you could send my way.
