Well since I was a young boy my family told me of my Great Great Grandpa, and I cant help but feel a connection with his soul. My dad would tell me of my Peppaw Wilse's dad being a Deputy and telling me of all the great things he did for the county and of his tragic end. Unfortunately I never met this great man but I have his bloodline running through my veins and I couldn't be more proud of that fact. I am a Hensley, I am forever proud of my bloodline and am forever in debt to you Deputy Hensley, and Dr Kimberly Jones Dodson for continuing his legacy!!!!
