From Rachel McRae
A great picture of my family, left to right: Jim Henry, my great grandpa Jack Henry (brothers), my grandma Laurabell Burns Henry, my grandpa David Henry in the back, my great grandma Maggie James Henry, my great aunt Marion McDiarmid Henry and my great uncle Arnold Henry
And this is Liz Thom and Ephraim Henry with their son William James, who is uncle Jim in the first photo I sent you. Ephraim died a young man, and his wife Liz had something along the lines of a stroke, so Jim and Jack had to farm and work as very young men to survive, without a father. They used to clear fields, build fences, farm, and they hauled gravel out of the quarry to help build roads. They bought the farm we live on now, which was owned by the Prices, who had no children, and moved down to milk cows. Jim never married, Jack married Maggie James from Hopetown, they had two sons, and I am going to be the 4th generation to farm on the property they bought. My sisters and I are the 6th generation of Henry’s on quarry road.
Thanks Rachel- we really appreciate it.
