Biography

Isaac "Ike" McHenry was born on October 8, 1861, in Rutherford County, Tennessee, just a few months after the Civil War began.[1][2] He was the son of Henry McHenry and Sarah Tabitha Dill.. The McHenry family was still living in Rutherford County after the war in 1870[3] and 1880.[4]

In 1885, the family migrated west to Kansas.[5] Isaac married Minnie Ann Hubbard in Medicine Lodge, Barber County, Kansas, on November 26, 1887.[6]

Isaac participated in the Oklahoma land rush which began at noon on September 16, 1893.[7] Isaac staked a claim and obtained land in Woods County, Oklahoma, 6 miles SE of Alva.[7]

Isaac lived with his family in Alva, Oklahoma, for the rest of his life. He and Minnie raised eight children born in Kansas and Oklahoma between 1888 and 1911.[8][9][10][11]

According to family stories, Isaac sold the land he obtained in the 1893 land rush and used the proceeds to open a saloon and tavern in Alva. He appears to have first applied for a liquor license on December 4, 1901.[12] His saloon and his efforts to open other saloons in the area were controversial and frequently incurred the wrath of the local Prohibitionist leaders.[13][14] Despite all of that, he continued to operate the tavern until at least 1920, when he is shown as the proprietor in the 1920 census. His sons Paul and Edward were also helping to run the tavern.[10].

Issac died in 1930.[2] Some researchers say the exact date was May 30.[2] He died intestate, and extensive probate records are available in the Woods County courthouse.[15]
