I am researching my greatgrandfather Hensley Joab Drennen, Drenning etc., who was born abt. 1823, I believe in Buncombe County, and some think a Lei, TN. The only info on township I have is Lei, which may be Leicester. Hensley married Isabella Drucilla Shope abt. 1846 in Franklin, Macon County NC. Isabella was born abt. 1820 in the Bee Tree community of Buncombe County, NC. Hensley owned land on the Nantahala River.
Any information on Hensley Joab Drenning, Drennen would be so appreciated. Thanks, Mitzi Drinnen
