Martin Luther Henley 1881-1951,Married Laura Alma Wooten Btw 1908-1909 some where in Ms.Martin and Alma migrated to Monroe,Ouahita Parish,La.(7 Children)

She was married previously to J. Arthur Spence and James Spence. They were brothers. Leona is my grandmother.Leona had a total of 9 children. Velma Viola Henley 1888-1950.married Martin Walter"Judge" Smith buried in Pine Grove Cemetery and they had 5 children. She is the line of( Clara Barrient),Lottie Mae Henley 1895 to 1898 buried in Pine Grove Cemetery married Richard H. Talbert and died in 1918 Flu outbreak.

Our Henley family is big and I can't list all here.I would love to discover who John H. Henley's family is.None of the paper trail on him list his parents names. It is possible that John's middle name is Hartford.
