Notes... Jacob Henry's daughter, Susanna, married John Drake and is my great-great-great grandmother. I also seriously doubt that Jacob Henry and Susanna Gotshall got married in 1816. The births of their children would better place the marriage around 1810 or 1811. {N.B. There were two separate Jacob Henrys marrying two separate Susannah Gotshalls - AEM]

Written by Anna (Drake) Smith, November 1902:

On July 4th, 1759, somewhere in Pennsylvania a baby was born and received the name of John Henry. He married a woman by the name of Eve Margaret. Your historian cannot learn her maiden name. John Henry served in the Revolutionary War, was often heard to tell how his regiment was once without provision for three days, then having won a victory of the English troops and captured a lot of provision, he stood for hours mixing flour and water in a trough, some eating raw dough while others took it on their ramrods and roasted it in an open fire. Occasionally, one of his comrades would give him a mouthful while he continued mixing bread for the others. John Henry died December 19, 1841 at the home of his son, Jacob Henry, in Jackson Township, Richland County, Ohio. Eve Margaret Henry was born in Pennsylvania on April 22nd, 1759 and died at the home of her son, Jacob Henry, March 8th, 1848.

Jacob Henry, son of John and Eve Margaret Henry, was born in the year 1784 in Pennsylvania. He married Susanna Gotshall, daughter of Michael and Catherine Gotshall, who also served in the Revolutionary War, in the year 1816. Jacob Henry with his wife and four children moved to the far West when he left the mountainous Pennsylvania home. His possessions amounted to five dollars in cash, one horse, a one-horse wagon, a few dishes, bedding, and flour.

Mr. Henry secured 160 acres of land in Harrison County, he and his wife having walked all the way from Cumberland County, Pennsylvania with the children and their few goods in the wagon. They slept in the wagon at night, cooking by a campfire, baking bread in the then-used bake kettles, which was a flat kettle with long legs and a heavy iron lid. The baking was done by heaping live coals around and on top of the kettle.

In 1833, Mr. Henry, having heard glowing reports of Richland County, decided to sell his hilly Harrison County farm and with his wife and twelve children, moved to Jackson Township.

He purchased 320 acres of land partly cleared and with a log cabin on. A couple years later, he build a commodious brick house, the old farm has been divided and is owned by Benjamin Laser, Eve Henry, and George Holtz, who still lives in the old brick house. Later, Mr. Henry bought 640 acres of land in Williams County, Ohio. Their children's names were Catherine, Sarah, Lydia, Susanna, Jonas, Jacob, John, Elizabeth, Eve, Mary, Daniel, and Samuel. Susanna, wife of Jacob Henry, died December 31st, 1861, aged 74 years, 9 months, 24 days. In 1864, Mr. Henry, again desiring to visit a brother and the home of his childhood, resolved to take a trip east and was on the ill-fated train which collided near the village of Thompsontown, Juniata County, Pennsylvania, September 21, 1864. After the collision, the wreck caught fire and he was supposed to have been burned to death. Jacob Henry died September 21, 1864, aged 80 years.

Susanna Henry, daughter of Jacob and Susanna Henry, was born in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania on November 25th, 1814, moved to Harrison County with her parents in the year 1816. In 1833, she moved with her family to Jackson Township, Richland County. On March 29th, 1838, she married John Drake and moved on the farm where she has ever since resided.

On November 25th, 1890, the Drake family held a reunion which was the first in thirty-seven years. Mr. Drake died March 18th, 1887.

John Henry, b. 4 July 1759 in PA, m. 9 March 1779 in Montgomery Co., PA Eva Margaret Zangmeister (b. 22 April 1759 in PA, d. 8 March 1848 in Richland Co., OH) - per note by Mary Altmon Sesher.

Henry's Valley in Perry County (the lower end of Sheaffer's Valley) is named for this family.

- - - Professor K. Edward Lay {[email protected]} writes:

Henry's Valley was named for the HENRY family who resided there just over the mountain from Cumberland Co, PA, into Perry Co, PA. It is the western end of Sheaffer's Valley, called "Pandemonium" in 1728 but was settled prior to 1776 as it furnished one Company and Officers for the Revolutionary War. In 1805, it had a school which also served as a church with a cemetery nearby. It is probably the "property in Diehl's Valley" (Toboyne, Jackson, Madison Twps of later Perry Co) listed in the 1814 Mifflin Twp, Cumberland Co, PA, Tax List. One source has the HENRYs as coming from Fahan, Northern Ireland, but they are also listed as speaking German and they certainly intermarried with Germans in that area. Residents of that area crossed south over the North Mountain via Three Square Hollow into Mifflin Twp to attend Zeigler's Lutheran Church there. Jerry Clouse has written about this area in the publication of The Perry Historians (P. O. Box 73, Newport, PA 17074-0073).

The 1790 Census of Cumberland Co, PA lists William HENRY and two John HENRYs as Heads of Households and all born before 1774. The 1800 Census and the Tax Lists for 1814-1828 in Mifflin Twp, Cumberland Co, and Toboyne Twp, Perry Co, PA, show also Nicholas, William, Peter, Jacob, John, and George HENRY names. There is a Cumberland County
Administration Bond (#133) for the estate of Peter HENRY dec'd of Mifflin Twp, dated 7 Apr 1818, listing Eve HENRY and William HENRY as administrators and with a $400 bail by sureties John HENRY and Christian HENRY (all of Cumberland County). A 10 Apr 1818 Inventory (#179) of Peter HENRY dec'd of Mifflin Twp which included a 10-plate stove, rifle & shot pouch, silver watch, 2 spinning wheels, shoemaker's tools, horses, cows, lambs, hogs. A Deed Poll (Sheriff John CAROTHERS to Samuel UTLEY - #462, p. 133) for the seizure (dated 1 Sep 1801) of 100 acres of Mifflin Twp, Cumberland Co, property (with 10-12 acreas of cleared land upon which is erected a square log house) of Nicholas and Peter HENRY at the suit of Samuel Utley (land bounded by lands of Michael DEIL, John HAY, and others).
Wm HENRY m. Sophia -- and is listed in the 1800 Census, Tyrone Twp, Cumb Co (became Perry Co in 1820). They possibly had children: Eva Margaret HENRY b. bef 1755 who m. John LAY (my 4th GGP), and Nicholas HENRY m. -- MITCHELL? and lived in Mifflin Twp, Cumberland Co, PA.
Nicholas' son allegedly was John HENRY Sr (1759 Cresam Twp, Philadelphia Co, PA-1841 OH) who was a Revolutionary War soldier (1776-1778) in the Battles of Trenton and Princeton, returned to reside in Rockville, Bucks Co PA after the war, was the first person to build a log house in Henry's Valley in Perry County PA, and then changed his name to McHENRY and moved to Marlborough Twp, Stark Co, OH, sometime after 1828. At the time of his enlishment he was living in Smithfield Twp, Bucks Co, PA (Rev War Pension Claim S.2285).

John HENRY Sr m. Eva Margaret -- and had the following known children:

1. John HENRY, Jr.

2. Christian (Christy) HENRY (1790 Bucks Co, PA-1871) m. Catharine LAY (or ROATH) 1792 Bucks Co, PA-1876). Christian HENRY and Catharine LEA are listed in the Brick Lutheran Church Records, Frankford Twp, Cumberland Co, PA. Both are buried in the Pioneer Cem in Henry's Valley where he was an Elder in the church there.

3. Anna Maria (Mary) HENRY (b. 1798, Perry Co, PA) m. Henry LAY (1801-1866).

4. Eva Margaret HENRY (b. 1803).

Children of Christian (Christy) HENRY (1790-1871) and Catharine LAY:

Susanna HENRY (1817-1893) m. Peter OILER (1820-1842)

Christian HENRY (bap 1821)

Daniel David? HENRY (1825-1902) m. Mary A. CLOUSE (1826-1885)

Mary A. HENRY (b. 1832) m. David HASEL

Rebecca HENRY (b 1835) m. -- McCOY

Jacob HENRY m. Susannah GUTSHALL

Catharine HENRY m. George KUNKLE

Rachael HENRY m. Samuel HACKMAN

Joseph HENRY

Soloma A. HENRY m. David or? Benjamin SALSBURG

Jacob HENRY m. Susannah GUTSHALL:

In 1826-28 Tax List, had 200 Warrantee acres and 118 Patent acres in Toboyne Twp, Perry Co, PA. Allegedly, he left the family and died in the West. They had the following known children: Daniel S. HENRY (b 1836)m. Mary Ann STAMBAUGH, George W. HENRY (1840-1924) m. Melinda Jane BALTOZER, Jacob HENRY (Seattle, WA), Esther HENRY m. -- BOWER, Kate HENRY m. Samuel SHEAFFER.

Princess Joan had 8 surviving children with her 2 husbands and died while giving birth to a stillborn child . . . ."
