That's interesting. I would like to know more about the source of your information that Catherine, who first married abt 1750 John Henry and second married abt 1775 Abraham Belyew was a Huston or Houston. I have no primary source for her maiden name. "The Family Tree Book" compiled by W.Thomas Smith in the 1920s states that the father of Catherine Belyew (wife of Abraham Belyew)resident of Anson County, NC was Philip Smith. I am very interested to know as much as possible about Catherine. If we can find out something about her birth family, it may lead us to more information about John Henry. Which of Catherine's children is your ancestor?

Do you have specific dates and places of your William C. Henry's birth and death and a list of his children? If you will post it or send it I will compare it to my list of names. My line:

One of their sons was William Henry, who died about 1812 in Anson County, NC and wife Margaret "Margery" Woods
One of their sons was William Henry, who lived in TN and TX where he died in 1884. He was married to (1)Ann Latta and (2) Julia Collins Van Hook

I am not sure that the John HENRY of Anson County is the same as the John HENRY who married Catherine Houston and who was, I believe, from Mecklenburg County, NC. I believe that the John who married Catherine HOUSTON was a brother to James HENRY, also of Mecklenburg, who had ties to HENRYs in Augusta County, VA. I have wondered if they might be connected to the HENRYs of Lilesvile, Anson County, but have not yet found a connection. --- Laurie

I have found some information on William Cohen Henry. His parents were George Jasper Henry and Fannie Bennett Williams. They had 7 children. We have been able to go back a little further but would like to find any information that is available.
