Rockdale, Texas. From recollections of her maternal grandfather handwritten by Miss Laura Hamilton (1898-1987), who was 13 years of age when Wm. P. Henry died in 1912.
William Pascal Henry was borned in Greensborough Kentucky Feb. 19. 1836.
At the age of 17 he ran away from home to join the Confederate Army [sic]. He served all during the war. He was in Hood's Brigade [sic] in Texas when the war was over. They had been camped along Old Caney. He never returned to his home in Kentucky.
He had one brother Frank who lived in Kentucky and one sister who married a Owens and they lived in Paducah. She had two daughters Mertie and Ida. Mertie married a Bydee who was a barber and also a Postmaster at Lucien (we think). Ida married George Saxse. . . .
