JOSEPH BONAPARTE HENSLEY FAMILY DEED IN HAMILTON CO., IL
Home to Mt. Pleasant
Church and Cemetery.
Contributed by Lucinda J. Copeland. Thanks!
|The land on which the church stood was purchased from
the government by Joseph B. Hensley in 1851. The first church
building, reportedly and evidently of log construction, stood in the
center of a one-acre tract located near the center of the Hensley land
purchase, the E 1/2 of NW quarter and W 1/2 of NC Quarter of Section 12,
T. 6S of R5E.
On December 1, 1856, Joseph B. Hensley and his wife, Lucinda, sold the above mentioned tract of land to Henry S. Cox of Gallatin County, Illinois. The cemetery and Mt. Pleasant Church evidently came into existence between 1851 and 1856. They are both mentioned in a reservation, a part of the description of the land in the deed made to Mr. Cox.
Please submit your early ancestor deed!
