Obviously Marshall Hensley's death was many years ago....but He IS family. Marshall Hensley was the oldest
brother of my Gr Gr grandfather, Frank Hensley, on my mother's side (Wanda Hensley, Louisville, Ky). I am very proud to have an ancestor, who paid (unfortunately), the ultimate price in doing his duty. God bless & rest in peace.
