John Henry
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1704
Death: 1773

Patrick Henry's father, he attended King's College of Aberdeen University on scholarship from 1720 to 1724. By 1727 he had settled in Hanover County. He married Sarah Winston Syme. The couple had eleven children together. Two children died at young ages leaving two sons and seven daughters in the family. They moved to Mount Brilliant from Studley about 1748. At one point he established a store for his sons. The store apparently was not a success because of his benevolence, John Henry being a better neighbor than businessman.

Since I'm descended from John Henry's son William, I mention this gentleman frequently as a genealogical connection to his more famous son Patrick. We're all proud to be related to the Henrys of Virginia.
