Turner and I are first cousins ounce removed.   We are grateful to  him for maintaining and documenting our family's history and relationships.  Much of the historical information  to Hensley Carpenter comes through his efforts in collecting and compiling it.  Turner and I have corresponeded at some length and he told me that he relied upon the work of James Ausie and Raymond George Carpenter.   I have tried to faithfully transcribe his collected notes and used them where they are appropriate for the individuals in our linage.

Excerpt from CRFP XXXIII By Turner C. Carpenter

A point worth mentioning is that Hensley II was born in 1807 and his wife, Louisa, was born in 1822 - - a difference of 15 years. My grandfather (George) was born October 30, 1852, so Hensley II was 45 and Louisa was 30 when he was born. (Turner is a direct descendant of Hensley I and Hensley II.) I have been unable to locate the grave of Hensley Carpenter II. I have, however found the graves of Eaton born March 9, 1811, and died July 5, 1871, and buried in a small cemetery on the Ball Branch Road and Michael Carpenter born October 18, 1817, died May 14, 1889, is buried in a family cemetery on the Minnow Branch Road. (both in Giles county)
    My grandfather, George W. Carpenter, was well-respected in his community. It is known that he acquired other real estate and sold various tracts to his sons. It is my understanding that farming was not too much to his liking, and that he made his money by trading and lending money at 6 per cent interest. I was 12 years old when he died and can remember him relating incidents that happened during the civil War.  He was about 9 years old when the war was going on and could tell stories about soldiers coming through the area and how they would take from the people the things they wanted.
    It is interesting to note that Hensley carpenter II born 1807, has about 150 descend-ants at this writing, but there are only seven Carpenters to carry on the name. These are: B. Clark Carpenter (lawyer in Talladega, Alabama) born June 13, 1950 - Eddy Carpenter born 1957 - Edward Thomas Carpenter born January 11, 1961 - John Paul Carpenter born April 7, 1965. Eddy, Edward, and John all reside in Columbia, Tennessee. (close to Giles County) Martin Carpenter born August 24, 1959 - Brian Carpenter born July 31, 1964, and Barry Carpenter born January 17, 1967, all live in Houston, Texas.
