Thank you in advance for your offer to help. I’m looking for Virginia A Lewter/Cook/Jackson/Hensley. She was the second wife of James Harrison Hensley his bio states that “James and his first two wifes are buried at Parker Memorial Cemetery Tarrant County Texas” But I don’t find her there. I am searching for more information on the Cook and Jackson children, the Hensley’s are pretty well documented. This branch of Lewters resided primarily in Smith County Texas prior to 1879.

“A biography of the Hensley family and a photo of James and his first wife appear in Grapevine
Historical Society, Grapevine Area History. After his first wife died, James was married on
September 20, 1879 in Tarrant County to Virginia Jackson. After Virginia died, he married Rebecca Jane Lucas (March 28, 1849-December 1, 1914), who lies buried in Arwine Cemetery in Hurst. James and his first two wives are buried at Parker Memorial Cemetery. James Hensley died July 9,1914 at his home south of Grapevine. He has a brother buried beside him who was a Union soldier. A small note appeared in the Grapevine Sun under the column of “Glade News.” It said: “Died last Thursday morning at 5 o’clock James Hensley, at his home and was buried the same day at five o’clock in the afternoon at Glade Cemetery. Quite a crowd followed the remains to its last resting place. We extend our sympathy to the sorrowing relatives.”
James Hensley was the father of at least nine children, including: John Henry Hensley, Nancy
Priscilla Hensley, Julia Aggendeccar (Mrs. Milton Monroe) Deaigh, Mary Cassandra Hensley,
Amelia Catherine (Mrs. Dan) Booth, Ida Susannah (Mrs. Orren Will) Millson, Ada Frances (Mrs. James T..) Sparger, Emma Goodman (Mrs. Edgar Guinn) McBride, and Ella Jane Hensley”.
