I believe that you are correct in your thoughts on John and Joseph McHenry. Additionally, I believe it is likely that they came from Chester County, South Carolina. Primarily because this is where I find a John and subsequently a Jane as the head of a household there. Joseph named my ancestor, Sarah Jane. Further, a family by the name of Gleghorn is also found here. The Gleghorns went to Tennessee with some McHenrys, and in the 1850 census for Randolph County, I find John McHenry listed with a Hulda Gleghorn and her family. He is listed as a "pedler," but I find it very compelling that the Gleghorns and McHenrys have been found in the three separate locations in proximity of each other.
Of further interest is that there is a John McHenry found in Randolph County very early, although I can't recall the date for certain, but I believe it was 1820. There is also a John McHenry found in Jackson County, Illinois. This man could be the father of John and Joseph.
Please email directly and we can discuss further and in more detail.
