Biography

(Note that the original entry was auto-generated by GED import and is now in process of being edited)

Mary J Yates Sexton Henshaw was born December 21, 1862, in Adair County, Kentucky. She was married to William Pinkney Sexton on November 27, 1881, in Gradyville, Kentucky. Her parents were James Alfred Yates and Mary Yates. Her children were Estella, John, and Laura. She died March 11, 1910, in Sherman, Texas, and is buried in West Hill Cemetery, Sherman. Her first husband died in Kentucky in 1888. She came to Texas in 1890, and in 1897 she married William B. Henshaw. Her brothers were W.W. Yates, W.S. Yates, T. Yates, and J.R. Yates – the first three of Missouri, and the last one of Weed, Kentucky. Her sisters were Mrs. Henry Yates and Miss Rebecca Yates of Edmonton, Kentucky. The following is quoted from the obituary of Mary Yates Henshaw: “She had been a devoted Christian and member of the Church of Christ for the past 20 years. She was at her place in the church when her health would permit and always contributed freely to the cause of Christ. Her life was one of self sacrifice. She never missed and opportunity of speaking a cheerful word to all, of helping the sick and strangers, and of encouraging her friends. Her life was one of hardships and trials, but she made these things minister to the development of a purer and nobler character. When three weeks old she was left motherless, and five years after her first marriage she was left a widow with three small children. One of these, a daughter, died soon after, and the other two were reared to manhood and womanhood. While these two children were compelled to be separated from their mother the greater part of their childhood, her thoughts were always for them, and the life she lived was one of the purest and noblest examples children ever had set for them by a parent.” This obituary was written by her minister.
