J.W. Hensley.
Mr. Hensley is a native son of the Blue Grass state of Kentucky, born on the 7th of December, 1829, and he is a representative of one of Delaware county's earliest and most honored pioneer families. He is a son of William and Sarah (Peterson) Hensley, natives respectively of Kentucky and North Carolina. William was a son of James and Sally (Icenangoe) Hensley, the former of whom served throughout the period of the Revolutionary war and also assisted Daniel Boone and others in ridding the country of the hostile red men and opening up the country for civilization. He carved out a farm from the wilderness, and in 1830 moved with his family to Rush county, Indiana, where he improved a good farm and , again assisted in opening a frontier country for future development. The family underwent all the hardships and difficulties of life on the frontier, and after living and laboring there for many years this honored pioneer couple came to Delaware county and settled in Mt. Pleasant township, whence they were called to their final rest. Mr. Hensley became widely known in his community, and commanded the confidence and highest esteem of all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance. His political support was given to the Democratic party, and he was a consistent and worthy member of the Primitive Baptist church. In his family were the following children: William, the father of our subject; John, James, Harrison, Aquilla, Sally, and Nancy, the last named the wife of Lorenzo Dow.
