  • Notes 
    • Eli Henry (1775 - 1860) is included in this Henry Tree branch because there is some circumstantial evidence that he may be the father of Eli Henry (Jr.). Two Federal census state Eli Jr. was born in Virginia and two others indicate Tennessee. Eli Sr.'s birthplace is also confused between Virginia and Tennessee in the census and among the descendants.

      My current working hypothesis is that Eli was married prior to his marriage to Sarah Anne Howerd. It is likely that this marriage was in Virginia and his first wife is the mother of Eli who was born in 1810. By 1812 he was already in Tennessee because he served in the East Tennessee Militia during the War of 1812. It should also be noted that two of his children (other than Eli Jr.) had Virginia listed as their place of birth in the 1850 Federal Census.

      Unknown children - one researcher indicates that there are two children born between William (1821) and Sarah Jane (1834).
