. . . Though he [Jeff Henry] is not a native of Kentucky, he is a scion of one of the old and honored families of Green County, this state, his paternal grandfather, BELFIELD HENRY, a native of Virginia, having been comparatively a young man when he came to Kentucky and numbered himself among the pioneer settlers of Green County, where his death occurred a number of years prior to the birth of the subject of this review. He became one of the extensive land-holders and farmers of the county, and prior to the Civil war owned a large number of slaves. He was of Scotch-Irish lineage, and the original representatives of the family in America came from Ireland to Virginia in the Colonial era of our national history. BELFIELD HENRY married Miss ELIZABETH KIRTLEY, likewise a native of Virginia, and both were well advanced in years at the time of their deaths. . . . History of Kentucky
