Note that the children shown here are somewhat speculatively connected with this family.  These children all have records in Athens County, Ohio in this same time period and are believed to be children of this marriage, but no substantial corroborating evidence has yet been found.  

Also, the family of brother Nathaniel G. Henshaw was shown in the 1830 census, Athens County, Ohio.  Some or all of the children currently thought to be the children of Harry might actually be brother Nathaniel's children.14  

See also: Daniel Henshaw #9247 who in 1860 was living very nearby to Minerva, daughter Urina and son Jefferson.  Daniel is very possibly another son of this family.14
