ANDREW HENSLEY (Manchester, Kentucky, January 27, 1898.)

I was born in Buncombe County, Bald Mountain Creek, North Carolina,
March 1832. My father's name was Levi. He removed first to Tennessee
where he stayed two years then came to Clay County in 1842. My
grandfather, James Hensley, came a few years later. My
great-grandfather's name was James. I have heard him say that his father,
whose name was Henry Hensley came from England. He was accompanied by his
brother, Isom Hensley, whose location he never knew. They parted to meet
no more. The descendants of James Hensley are numerous. They are all
through the Kentucky mountains, especially in Harlan County and in West
Virginia. I cannot tell anything of Isom Hensley's decendants: Harry H.,
James H., Levi H., and Andrew H., born 1832.
