OBITUARY - HENSLEY -- Feb'y 4th, 1880, at the residence of A.B. HENSLEY,
William HENSLEY, in the 90th year of his age.
Mr. HENSLEY would have been 90 years of age if he had lived till the
second of March next. He came to this county from .p.St. Louis county,
Mo;., in 1837, and resided here ever since. For the last sixty years he
lived a faithful Christian life, being a member of the Baptist church.
"By reason of strength" he had passed the age of three score and ten,
and nearly another score of years had been added to his days, when,
having completed his term of prohibition, he "fell on asleep," and is
"gathered to his fathers." Among his descendants and relatives are
numbered many of our most respected citizens, and though they might not
expect to reach the advanced age allotted him, his virtuous Christian
life is a good example for them to imitate.
