  • Notes 
    • Supplied by John Jackson, Great-Grandson of Andrew Jackson Hennessee:

      There are many traditions linking the Hennessee Family to Missouri...while travelling in that state in a covered wagon the family was attacked by bandits and rescued by the JAMES Brothers. Frank and Jesse may have been former neighbors

      (1). What is known for certain is that AJH met and married his wife in Warren County
      (2). They moved to Sequatchie County (Dunlap) where he worked as a road boss. One day a worker threatened AJH whom he shot and killed. AJH soon fled to Canada (records have it that his son, Thomas, went Canada for a period of time) where he lived a number of years. Upon returning to Tennessee he lived briefly with his elderly wife on the poor farm where he died (3).


      1. Story related to JJ by George Martin Hennessee, nephew of AJH
      2. Marriage Records, Warren County, TN.
      3. Story related to JJ by AJH's daughter, Phoebe Belzori Hennessee Cordell.
