Hi, my g.g.grandparent lived and died in Rusk, Cherokee Co., Tx in the late 1800's but I can find no record of their deaths or gravesites. If anyone could do a lookup for me, it would be greatly appreciated. Here are their names:
John Anthony Hensley and Absey Levicy Emily(Moore)Hensley. My information is that they died around 1870's from a plague, possibly smallpox, that hit Rusk and that they are buried there somewhere. They had 3 children born to them in Rusk, also. Frank Younger, Emma, and Susan Hensley. John was the son of Samuel Ichabod Hensley and Orlinda Stover and Absey was the daughter of Rev. Shadrach Jones Moore and Tacy Jones. The parents also lived in or around Rusk at one time. Thanks, again.
Sincerely, Jean Branum
