His brother Paul Henson was captured in Pike co Ky. Paul was sent to Rock Island Prison. Paul never made it back home to his family.
William fought in the Civil War along with his brother. William is my brick wall; I know who his mother and siblings were. William and all his siblings were born in Clay County Kentucky. There are many documents relating to Clay Co KY. However because I dont know his fathers name I cant find them on the early Clay co census records. William is my 3rd great grandfather
