Birth: Jul. 4, 1871
Kansas, USA
Death: Mar. 1, 1933
Linn County
Missouri, USA

Son of William Hensley who was born in Illinois.

On December 21, 1893 in Bucklin, Linn County, Missouri, Jake married Sophia Burke.


Arthur Lee Hensley 1894-1980
George P. Hensley 1899-
William C. Hensley 1906-
Opal Belle (Hensley) Herington 1909-1986

Sophia died sometime before the 1910 census as Jake and his 4 children were alone in this census of Linn County, Missouri. The youngest child Opal was only 6 months old, so Sophia died between October 1909 (when Opal was born) and May 3, 1910 (date of census).

In the 1920 census of Linn County, Missouri, the oldest child, Arthur had left the home, and Jake was listed with the three youngest children and his mother-in-law Sarah Burke, age 72.

Jake did not remarry as his Missouri Death Certificate 10223 in 1933 lists him as widowed from Sophia (Burke) Hensley. His death certificate states he is buried at Switzer Chapel Cemetery.
