  • 30 Apr 2009 Updated page by Marty Grant, relationship unknown. Format changes and new register report.

The author (Marty Grant) is not related to Isom Hensley as far as can be proven. He did live in the same county (Scott Co., VA) as my ancestor Larkin Hensley (c1761-1806), though he moved there several years after Larkin died. 

Special Thanks to Jim Brown, Peg Shannon, and Ruthe Muench for information shared on this family.

Isom Hensley was born ca 1797/98 per his age of 52 on the 1850 census. The 1860 and 1870 census show him as 61 and 71 both of which works out to ca 1798/99.

He was born in Tennessee per the same sources (1850, 1860 & 1870 census.) I would suspect he was born in Sullivan County, though Hawkins is also a possibility, but I believe his father was in Sullivan in the 1790's.

I have seen no direct proof of who Isom Hensley's parents were, but it seems very likely that he is a son of Isom Hensley (1760/70-1849). This is based entirely on circumstantial evidence, though quite compelling. They were both in the same area for many years, Isom Sr's other children (also not proven) were associated with Isom Jr, and so forth. This isn't solid evidence that Isom Jr is a son of Isom Sr, but it is the best we can find at present. I am quite confident that it is correct.

Isom Hensley would have been about 2 years old by the time of the 1800 census. Unfortunately this census is lost for Tennessee and Virginia.

Isom Hensley would have been about 12 years old by the time of the 1810 census. Unfortunately this census is lost for Tennessee and much of Virginia. He lived in Scott Co., VA later on. In 1810 Scott didn't exist yet, but the territory was still part of Washington, Lee and Russell Counties. The 1810 census survives for Washington, but not Lee and Russell. There were Hensleys in Washington County in 1810. Isom Sr was not listed there, and I suspect he was still in Tennessee at that point, and so was his probable son Isom Jr.

Looking at those Hensleys in Washington Co., VA in 1810. Two of the five have sons about Isom's age: William Hensley (1765/84) had two boys aged 10-15 (1794/1804). Either of those could easily be Isom Hensley (c1798). Fielding Hensley (1761). had one son that age. I seriously doubt Isom was a son of William or Fielding. The primary reason is that they lived in the eastern part of Scott County near the Washington County line, whereas Isom and his kin lived in the central part on the Tennessee line. This doesn't preclude them all being related, but it suggests some distance.

Isom Hensley would have turned 16 years old around 1814 or thereabouts. He does not appear on the Scott County tax lists until 1825, so he was probably still in Tennessee up until that point.

Isom Hensley would have been about 22 by the time of the 1820 census. He was not listed on his own, at least not in Virginia. He was probably still in Tennessee at this point. Unfortunately the 1820 census is lost for Eastern Tennessee including Sullivan and Hawkins Counties.

Sometime before ca 1820 Isom Hensley married Jane McDavid either in Scott Co., VA or Hawkins Co., TN. She was born ca 1799/1800 per her age of 50 on the 1850 census (and 60 and 70 on the 1860 and 1870 census). Those same records show her born in Tennessee. I have seen no proof that she was a McDavid, but Jim Brown and others believe so, and it does fit. Michael McDavid (1760/70) was a neighbor of theirs for many years, and they named a son Michael Hensley. Michael McDavid was the proven father of Catherine McDavid who married Samuel Hensley, Isom's suspected brother.

Isom Hensley Jr was on the 1825 tax list in Scott Co., VA with 1 white male over 16 and no horses. His father Isom Sr was also listed as was his brother Benjamin. None of them were listed in 1824, so they must have moved there around that time (mid to late 1824 or very early 1825).

Isom Hensley was not on the 1826 tax list for some reason, though his father was listed as Isom Sr. Isom Jr probably went back across the border for a few years. He was not listed on the Scott County tax lists in 1827, 1828, 1829 or 1830.

Isom Hensley was listed on the 1830 census in Hawkins Co., TN. Several other Hensleys were in the county, but none were listed nearby. Michael McDavid (1760/70) was next door. Perhaps he is Jane's father. That would explain the name of their child "Michael Hensley."

On the 1832 Scott Co., VA Tax List, there is a listing for Isom Hensley and one for Isom F. Hensley. Presumably one of these is Isom Sr, the other Jr, but I don't know which is which. I would guess that the one with the "F" initial is the younger man, for middle names were very uncommon for people in Isom Sr's generation. Isom had 1 white male over 16 and either 2 or 3 horses, while Isom F. had 1 male over 16 and no horses.

Isom Hensley was on the 1833 tax list with 1 white male over 16, and 2 horses. I believe this is Jr, but it could be Sr. Only one person of this name was listed.

Isom Hensley was on the 1834 tax list with 1 white male over 16, and 1 horse.

Isom Hensley was on the 1835 tax list with 1 white male over 16, and 1 horse.

Isom Hensley was on the 1836 tax list with 1 white male over 16, and no horses.

Isom Hensley was on the 1837 tax list with 2 white males over 16, and no horses. The second white male over 16 could be his oldest son (who is probably James-1821). Michael (c1823) wasn't quite 16 yet.

Isom Hensley was on the 1838 tax list with 2 white males over 16, and no horses.

Isom Hensley was on the 1839 tax list with 2 white males over 16, and no horses. By this time Michael (c1823) would be over 16, and this second male could be him. The 2nd male from 1837 and 1838 is probably the James Hensley who appears on the 1839 list for the first time in his own name. It is impossible to say for sure though. James was a neighbor of Isom's in 1850.

Isom Hensley is listed on the 1840 census in Scott Co., VA. There are other Hensleys there too, but none listed nearby. Once again Michael McDavid (1760/70) was nearby, just two houses away. Mathias McDavid (1810/20) was next door, perhaps a brother-in-law. (They did name a child "Mathias Hensley.") Several of the other nearby surnames were the same as in 1830 in Hawkins Co., TN. Perhaps they didn't move at all, but the border was adjusted or uncertain.

Isom Hensley and family were listed on the 1850 census in Scott Co., VA. Several Hensleys were nearby, James (c1821) (probable son) was two houses away;  Isom (c1828) probably son, was four houses away; Michael (c1823) probable son was five houses away. Leticia Hensley (c1810), relationship unknown, was seven houses away.

I was unable to find either Isom or Jane on the 1880 census. I suspect they  both died in the 1870's in Scott Co., VA.

Children of Isom and Jane (McDavid) Hensley. Isom Hensley and wife Jane McDavid have a large family. The 1850 census shows them with five children. Earlier census records show a few more unidentified children.

  1. Unknown Son (c1820/25)
  2. Michael "Black Mike" Hensley (c1823)
  3. Mary Hensley (c1826)
  4. Isom Hensley (c1828)
  5. William F. Hensley (c1833)
  6. Samuel Hensley (c1836)
  7. Nancy Hensley (c1838)
  8. Mathias W. Hensley (c1840)
  9. Margaret C. Hensley (c1844)  

Unknown Son (1820/25). Isom Hensley had an apparent son this age. He was with him for the 1830 census aged 5-9 (born ca 1820/25), but gone by 1840.

This could be James M. Hensley (c1821). He is a perfect age match and he lived very close to Isom. Other than that I have no hard proof that James is his son, but I feel he probably is. See his own page for additional information.

Michael "Black Mike" Hensley was born ca 1822/23 in TN, presumably in Hawkins County. I have not seen definitive proof that he is a son of Isom & Jane but it seems very likely. Jim Brown believes so, and I agree with his reasoning on this.

According to Jim Brown, Michael was called "Black Mike" to distinguish himself from his first cousin Michael "Red Mike" Hensley, son of Benjamin Hensley. I'm assuming the color had to do with their hair.

Michael was apparently with his parents for the 1830 census, aged 5-9 (born ca 1820/25), and still home in 1840 aged 15-19 (born ca 1825/25).

Michael Hensley married Mary Arnold on 28 Aug 1842 in Hawkins Co, TN.

They were listed on the 1850 census in Scott Co, VA five houses from his parents.

By the time of the 1870 census they had moved to nearby Greene Co, TN.  They were listed next to brother Isom and near other Hensley relatives.

According to Jim Brown, Mary Arnold Hensley died in 1896 and Michael in 1898, both in Greene Co., TN.

Mary Hensley was born ca 1825/26 in VA, presumably in Scott County. She was home with her parents in 1830, aged under 5 (born ca 1825/30), and home in 1840, aged 10-14 (born ca 1825/30).

I had this daughter (1825/30) listed as unidentified until Jim Brown told me it was Mary Hensley wife of Stephen Arnold. I'm not sure what the proof of that is, but it works.

Mary Hensley married Stephen Arnold sometime before ca 1847 in either Scott Co., VA or Hawkins Co., TN. No marriage record found.

They were listed on the 1850 census next door to her parents in Scott Co., VA. They were still in Scott for the 1860, 1870 and 1880 census also.

Mary Hensley Arnold died sometime between 1880 and 1900, for Stephen was listed on the 1900 census (Scott Co., VA) as a widower.

Isom Hensley was born ca 1827/28 per his age of 22 and 32 on the 1850 and 1860 census. He was born in TN, presumably in Hawkins County. I have not seen definitive proof that he is a son of Isom & Jane but it seems very likely. Jim Brown believes so, and I agree with his reasoning on this.

Isom was apparently with his parents for the 1830 census, aged under 5 (born ca 1825/30), and still home in 1840 aged 10-14 (born ca 1825/30).

On 29 Nov 1845 Isom Hensley obtained a marriage bond in Hawkins Co., TN to marry Catherine McCulluh. They married the next day on 30 Nov 1845. Prudence Catherine McCullough was born Feb 1830 in Tennessee, presumably in Hawkins County.  I don't know who her parents were.

They were listed on the 1850 census in Scott Co, VA four houses from his parents.

Isom Hensley apparently died between 1880 and 1900, presumably in Union Co., TN, for Prudence was listed as head of household on the 1900 census there as a widow. She was living alone and listed as a pauper.

I didn't find her in 1910, so she may have died in the 1900-10 period. 

William F. Hensley was born ca 1832/33 in Scott Co, VA. He was apparently home with his parents for the 1840 census. He was with them in 1850 in Scott Co, VA, "William" age 17.

On 28 Jul 1853 William Hensley married Mary Jane Peters in Scott Co., VA. The marriage record did not give their parents names. She was born ca 1830/31 in Virginia, presumably Scott County. I believe she is the same Mary J. Peters who was a daughter of George Peters and Elizabeth (---) of Scott Co., VA.

They were listed on the 1860 census in Scott Co., VA, but not near any of the other Hensleys.

I couldn't find them on the 1900 census.

Samuel Hensley was born ca 1835/36 in Scott Co, VA. He was apparently home with his parents for the 1840 census aged under 5 (born ca 1835/40). He was with them in 1850 "Samuel" age 14.

On 10 Sep1857 Samuel Hensley married Franky J. Dezarne in Scott Co., VA. The marriage record listed him as a son of Isom & Jane, and her as a daughter of Benjamin and Sara.

They were listed on the 1860 census just a few houses from brother James Hensley.

Franky died sometime between 1870 and 27 Mar 1877 for on that date Samuel Hensley married Alice Fowler in Scott Co., VA. (She was living with them in 1870 as a domestic servant.) Alice was born ca 1848/49 in Washington Co., TN. The marriage record gave her mother's name as Nancy, but listed no father.

Nancy Fowler was a single mother and associated with the Hensleys over many years, so possibly related somehow. She (Nancy) was listed on the 1850 census in Washington Co., TN with Alcy Fowler (c1775 NC) and Betsy Fowler (c1800 TN) and young daughter Alcy Fowler (c1849) I would assume that Alcy (1775) was the mother of Betsy, who in turn was mother of Nancy. I could be wrong about that, but that is how it seems. This means that young Alice (or Alcy) was named after her great grandmother.

In 1860 Nancy Fowler was in Sullivan Co., TN residing in the household of  Benjamin Hensley (1795) an uncle to Samuel Hensley.  By this time she had three children in addition to Alcy / Alice (who was also there.)

As noted above, Alice was with Samuel Hensley in 1870 listed as a servant.  Her mother Nancy was back in Washington Co., TN for that census. Alcy was listed at home with her too, so that raises the thought that perhaps the Alice Fowler with Samuel Hensley in 1870 was a different person, but perhaps not, it wasn't uncommon for a person to be listed twice on the census. There is no doubt which one married Samuel though, for the marriage record listed her as a daughter of Nancy Fowler.

For the 1880 census, Samuel Hensley and family were listed in Union Co., TN near his brother Isom. (Alice's mother Nancy Fowler was in Washington Co., TN in 1880.)

Nancy Hensley was born ca 1837/38 in Scott Co, VA. She was apparently home with her parents for the 1840 census aged under 5 (born ca 1835/40). She was with them in 1850 in Scott Co, VA, "Nancy" age 12.

On 12 Aug 1858 Nancy Hensley married James D. Fletcher in Scott Co., VA. The marriage record gave her parents as Isom and Jane, and his as Isaac and Elizabeth.

They were in Scott Co., VA in 1860 next to brother Samuel Hensley. They were still in Scott for the 1870 and 1880 census, also.

Mathias W. Hensley was born ca 1839/40 in Scott Co, VA. He was apparently home with his parents for the 1840 census aged under 5 (born ca 1835/40). He was with them in 1850 in Scott Co, VA "Matthias W." age 10.

On 24 May 1860, Mathias W. Hensley married Elizabeth Dezarne in Scott Co., VA. She is a sister to Franky who married Mathias' older brother Samuel.

They were listed on the 1860 census in Scott Co., VA in the household of his parents.

I couldn't find them on the 1900 census.

Margaret C. Hensley was born ca 1843/44 per her age of 6 and 16 on the 1850 and 1860 census. Her birth place is in question though, for the 1850 census shows Virginia, while the 1860 and 1870 census shows Tennessee.

Margaret was home with her parents in 1850 "Margaret C." age 6, and with them in 1860, "Margaret" age 16.

She was still with them in 1870, but by this time she had several children born out of wedlock. This census does not state the relationships between them and her, but the 1880 census confirms that she was their mother and she was single.

Margaret Hensley may be listed on the 1900 census in Scott County, but I'm not sure if it is her. She is listed as born Dec 1844, age 55, single, residing as a "boarder" with Isaac Hensley (1842) and his family. Isaac is a son of James Hensley and Eleanor Peters. Margaret has no known relationship to the Isom Hensley family. Margaret's relationship is listed as "boarder" so that doesn't help narrow down the connection, if there is one. It is possible this isn't the same Margaret, but I'm thinking it is. As far as I know, this would be the only record found showing any connection between the Isom Hensley family and the Hensley families of eastern Scott County.
