From the family Bible, as dictated by Winfield Scott Hensley: Herman Hensley, born July 18, 1883. Two stories from The Claremore (OK) Weekly Progress, March 23, 1922, Herman was arrested for possession of “several bottles of whiskey.”
From the Claremore (OK) Weekly Progress, Thursday, 5 July 1923: Herman Hensley of Tonkawa, is spending a few days in the city with relatives and friends. Mr. Hensley has erected a rooming house at Tonkawa (Oklahoma) and is doing well. And not only this, but on June 27th, he was married to Mrs. Noma Hawkins of Minneapolis, Minn. They are making their home in Tonkawa which is alive with the oil business at the present time.
In 1935, we visited Herman and his wife at their very nice, 2-story home in Danville, Illinois. I don't know which wife it was, but she was very nice and friendly. From the obituary for Winfield Scott Hensley, January 21, 1937, Herman was listed as a resident of Danville, Illinois.
From a Western Union telegram dated January 24, 1945, 10:10 p.m., from Herman's daughters, Elta and Pauline, to Ina Hensley Hall, sister of Herman, “Dad passed away 10:30 a.m. today at Soldiers and Sailors Home Quincy IL. Have advised burial there. Elta and Pauline. (Source: Norma Ewing; Saturday, July 30, 2011)
