Mary Elizabeth "Molly" Tate Hensley
Birth: Aug. 10, 1853
Newton County
Missouri, USA
Death: Mar. 26, 1896
Osage Mills
Benton County
Arkansas, USA

Mary Elizabeth Tate Hensley was the daughter of Mitchell and Mary Elizabeth Tate. She was given the same name as her mother, so she was called "Mollie". Mary Elizabeth Tate, "Mollie" married John Baxter Hensley "Baxter", on Oct. 16, 1877. He had come to work on her Daddy's farm and they fell in love. Baxter and Molly lived in a big two story house across the road from the Temperance Hill Baptist Church and cemetery. Their children were: James Baxter "Jim" Hensley, Ella Hensley Rash, John Mitchell Hensley, Grace Emaline Hensley Morris, Melvia Willie Hensley Chenoweth, Iva Lee "Ivy" Hensley, Minnie Lee Hensley, and Mike Baxter Hensley.

Mollie was a member of the Temperance Hill Baptist Church. Her small children could stand in kitchen chairs, look out the window and see their Mother's grave.

Taken from Benton County Democrat 4/2/1896:

Hensley, Mary E.---At her home near Osage Mills, Benton County, Ark, March 16, 1896, after a brief illness, Mrs Mary Hensley, beloved wife of Baxter Hensley, quietly and peacefully passed from this earthly tabernacle. She was born Aug. 10, 1852 (1858) and died at the age of 43 years and 7 months, leaving a faithful husband and eight dutiful children to mourn her sudden departure. At the age of 18 years, she gave herself to Christ and united with the Baptist church at Temperance Hill, in which church she lived an exemplary Christian life. She was a sufferer from that dread disease, pneumonia, and though her sufferings were great and at time it seemed almost unbearable, yet she was seldom heard to complain. The funeral services were held at Temperance Hill on the following day, March 17, in the presence of a great concourse of sorrowing friends, after which her remains were laid to rest in the church yard to await the final summons of the last day. C.A. Rogers.
