Searching for information on Henry McKinley Sexton b.1849 TN
d.1906 Texas.
Henry was adopted by the Spann family (Jeremiah L. and Jane Spann) I found him on the 1860 census in Calloway Co Ky with this family.
When searching the 1850 census for the Spann family, I found them in Weakley, TN. Since Henry M. was born in TN in 1849 I figured it was likely his family was in the same area in 1850.
I found a family with the surname Sexton and there was a Henry but he is age 3 instead of 1 and I can't figure out relationships in this grouping. Here is the listing:
1850 Weakley TN
Sexton, G. M 64 abt 1786 VT.
Sexton, Jemima F 56 abt 1794 VT
Sexton, Rebecca F 26 abt 1824 NC
Sexton, James M 18 abt 1832 NC
Sexton, Wiley F 6 abt 1844 TN
Sexton, Henry M 3 abt 1847 TN

I found a James Sexton and a MW Sexton in Gibson TN in 1860 that could possibly be James and Wiley but I am not certain.

My Henry grows up in Calloway Co.,KY with the Spann family and marries Lucy Jane Walston. They move to Texas with their children sometime between 1878-1880.
Henry M Sexton and Lucy Jane Walston's children are:

-Virginia B. b. abt 1867 TN died young
-Mary L. b. 1870 KY married James W. Bowers
-Annie F. b. 1871 KY married Tacitus S Holmes
-Acenith (Ascenthia) b. 1875 KY married Will H. Flanagan and John C. Clark. She had 3 known children with Flanagan and 4 known children with Clark.
-Rueben Thomas b.1878 KY married Elwilder Willie Lewis
-Ella "Ellie" Mehetable b. 1882 TX married Luke H. Morgan
-Minnie Irena b. 1887 TX married unkn Jones
-Bedford Forest b. 1891 TX married Maud Brooks
-Bessie Jane b. 1896 TX married Hiram Fane McMinn
-Emmitt E died young

I am interested in the Spann family and the Sexton family. I am trying to find Henry M. Sexton's parents and what happened to his family.
