  • Notes 
    • Birth: Jun. 9, 1919
      Death: Oct. 24, 1973, USA

      Charles Cooper Hensley was born in Gainesboro, TN, in 1919. He was the oldest son of Bessie Lou (Kinnaird) and Eddie P. Hensley. When he was 17, he took an orange and some change and rode the rails to California in search of a job. He worked in Southern CA for Bauer Pottery for several years.

      In 1942, he was introduced to Mary Elizabeth Vandervort by a friend of his--her brother John. Charles and Mary were married in January of 1943. They had four children: Edward, James, Charlene, and Patricia.

      Charles worked at a variety of jobs. He eventually became a real estate broker. It was while working at that job, driving from CA to Idaho to look at property, that he was killed in a single car accident in Oregon.

      Charles was drafted into the U.S. Army during WWII. He was honorably discharged just a few months later when it was learned that his eyesight was so bad that he should not have been drafted.

      Charles was my dad. He was a gentle spirit who loved animals. His favorite color was green because it was the color of living things.
