Hi, Carolyn, I descend from a Henry family from Atkinson! My great-something-grandfather (he fought in the Civil War) was Washington Brown Henry from Atkinson and he married Sarah Elizabeth Vann from Sampson County, NC. I descend from one of their daughters, Celestial Ann (Lessie) Henry, who married Gus Byrd from Harnett Co, NC. My mom (who is Lessie and Gus Byrd's granddaughter) was born and raised in Burgaw and my dad grew up in Atkinson. I know that Washington Henry (Civil War veteran) was the son of Neill Henry and his wife Ann Bonham. And Wash and Sarah Vann Henry are buried with most of their family in Atkinson--maybe the same cemetery you're talking about!!
