Hi, Richard.  I can't post your pedigree on the Patriarch page because of lack of dates for pre-1910 ancestors.  Hope your posting on the Forum page helps in your research.  Good luck.

William b1816  NC/SC m c1842 Nancy b c1818
   James  b1844 MO
   Melvina b1846 MO  m 1870 Nathanial Lewis Richards b 1849 IN
   Frances b1850 MO
   Sarah    b1852 MO
   Marline "Lena"  b8158 MO

James was listed as an idiot on the 1860 Cedar County Missouri census, and no other boys survived, so this Hensley name apparently died out with James' generation.  William and Nancy appear to both dead by 1870 because all the sisters were living with Melvina and her husband.  Would love to find someone else who is related to this family and could fill in some of the holes.  Their name was sometimes spelled Henslee and sometimes Hensley.

I wanted to add to my posting above re: William and Nancy Henslee that I am descended directly from Nancy ->Melvina through the females.  Thus, I am thinking about getting my mtDNA tested.  Is anyone else on this forum (or anywhere else you know about) doing testig related to the females in this line?  Thanks!

Laura, the Hensley DNA Project really doesn't include the mtDNA results.  As you know, the mtDNA information is passed from mother to daughter and as such, the surnames in many cases, are not known.  Most of us who have tried to find out the maiden names of many of our ancestors wives haven't been able to find a paper trail for some of the early US ancestors.  The Hensley DNA project's objective is to tie together (hopefully) those fragment Hensley/Henslee/etc lines via the males Y Chromosome (which is passed from father to son, to son, etc) usually within a given surname..not always true but is more constant than in the mothers surname from generation to generation. 

If you would like to establish your lines DNA in hopes of connecting to other related lines, you need to have a male Hensley/Henslee/etc tested.  If your line has already been tested and is on the Patriarch's page, then your ancestral lineage may have already be established.  If not, we'd love to have one of your male descendants test.

That said, THERE IS  a mtDNA group that is supported By familytreeDNA as we are.  If you go to, you can see what is offered., matching, etc.   I just found it today and have also just exhausted my complete extent of it...8)   

Hope this helps with what you wish to do.  In the meantime, I will post your pedigree in the Patriarch page.

My gr gr grandfather (Jason Rice McCallister) was born out of wedlock in 1850 to Cynthia McCallister in Putnam Co WV.? The hidden "skeleton in the closet" family gossip is that his father was a Hensley.? I learned today that my Y DNA (36 out of 37 markers) matches with that of a Hensley descendant whose ancestors lived in that area until 1826.? Another Hensley male descendant matches 35 out of 37 markers with my Y DNA.? I would like to find out if any descendants of the below Hensley males in the 1850 Putnam Co WV census have a family story that their respective ancestor fathered a McCallister child in 1850.? Who is Jason's father?  I suspect that since Cynthia didn't marry, it probably means that the father was already married, and that Winston, William, or James was the father.  If you are a descendant, have heard that family rumor, and are hesitant to drag out dirty launty, please do not hesitate.  What happened 150+ years ago is history.  All I want to know is my Hensley lineage.

Dave, I'm Joe Henslee the Hensley DNA Project Administrator.  We'd be happy for you to join our project if you wish.  As you know, our primary focus is on tying together those various Hensley/etc lines and although what you are looking for is a little different, you're still looking for a specific line.  Having said that, if you'd like to join, you'll be more than welcome.  As we get more folks active in this project, there might be one that has knowledge that could help your quest.  One part of your ancestry has been confirmed so far.
