DEATH-BURIAL-OBITUARY: The Mountain Wave, March 22, 1893, p. 2, c. 4;
"J.W. Hensley, a former resident of Searcy county, died at the residence of Monty Baskins, 15 miles south of here last Saturday night. He left Marshall on the evening of the 12 inst., on his way to Vanburen county to buy cattle, and took sick on the same evening, but never gave up for some time, and finally undertook to make his way back to Marshall, when he reached Mr. Baskins and was so ill he could come no further. Dr. Heard was called in and soon sent for Dr. Leslie, but he was beyond medical aid. He had been subject to attacks of something like the bilious colic, and notified Dr. Heard on Friday evening that he would have to prepare to treat bilious colic. His bowels were totally parylized [sic] and could not be moved.
Mr. Hensley was a son of Jack Hensley, one of the pioneer settlers of this country. Wayne was born in Wayne county, Tenn., in the year 1838 and his father moved to Searcy county in 1841 and settled on Bear Creek when Wayne was but three years old. His father, Jack Hensley was taken prisoner during the late war and carried to St. Louis where he died in a short time. Wayne was County and Circuit Clerk in this County from 1880 to 1884. In 1885 he bought a farm on White River near the Missouri line and moved to that place, and in a short time moved to Colorado, but remained there but a short time when he returned to his farm on White River.
Mr. Hensley was the third of his father's family to have died away from home, his father dying in St. Louis and his brother was accidentally killed by a runaway team near Little Rock, in 1861. His aged mother lives with her daughter, Mrs. E.D. Arnold, at this place. She is in the 85th year of her age. He was buried at the Marshall cemetery last Tuesday; the funeral being conducted by the Masonic Fraternity.
In the death of Mr. Hensley, the country loses an old and highly respected citizen. He leaves a host of friends to mourn his loss. His family was unable to attend the funeral except one son. The bereft family and relatives have our greatest sympathy."
