Re: I can now do lookups

Hi Heidi,

Would you please do a look up for me? It is regarding a
William Henry who died by December 9-12-1815 in Botetourt Co. VA. I was given the following information:

William Henry died by 9-2-1815
Children under age 14: William, Samuel, Peggy and John.
Lewis Harvey named as Guardian
Source: Botetourt Children by Charles T Burton

If you might have the above William Henry in your wills or other source documents I would appreciate some help.

I do know that William Henry's daughter Peggy married Elijah Kelly 10 July 1830 Botetourt Co. Bondsman Samuel Wort. Ward of Lewis Harvey

Sarah Henry married John T. Wirt (Wort) 1815 Botetourt Co. I believe that Samuel Wirt (Wort) was John's brother. It is also said that Sarah Henry is listed as William Henry's daughter, however, I don't know if Sarah was the daughter of William who died 1815 or if she and William (d. 1815) were siblings of possibly Capt. William Henry of Botetourt Co.

I have traced Sarah Henry Wirt and also the sons of William Henry dec. 1815 (William and Samuel Henry) from Botetourt Co. VA to Hardin Co. TN. It also appears that William, Samuel and John Henry, sons of William Henry dec. 1815 were living with John T. and Sarah Henry Wirt in the 1820 Botetourt Co. Census.

Any assistance you can give me with this William Henry family would really be appreciated.

Carolyn Anderson
