I'm trying to find the location of "Henley's Store" which was owned and operated by Rev. John S. Henley in the 1850's and early 1860's.  The store was given as a landmark on several documents that I've run across and I've found the name on an old map of Franklin, Hart, Madison, Elbert counties.  If the map is accurate, the store was on what is now Hwy 29 just before crossing Lake Hartwell.  All records for Rev. Henley state that he lived in the Shoal Creek community and/or Reed Creek community.

Rose Webb
MARTHA JANE HUDGENS/HUDGINS born 1830 Atlanta GA and WILLIAM A. (SAMUEL) MEWBORN/MEWBURN married at the Bride's Father's House in 1850. Their daughter, MARTHA JANE MEWBORN/MEWBURN born in 1868 & left GA by wagon train in the 1880's to Bright Star AR. We do not know whom she travelled with or whom she lived with before her marriage at Smith's Mill in TX in 1887 to GEORGE WASHINGTON SULLIVAN born Atlanta GA 1866. He too left GA on the same wagon train and established residency in Queen City TX. His parents, siblings unkn whome he lived with before his marriage. William MEWBORN/MEWBURN son of Thomas MEWBORN and Francis BURDEN of Atlanta GA. They are connected to the NC MEWBORN/MEWBOORN family who came from England. There is no info in the family Bible on who Martha Jane HUDGINS/HUDGENS parents or siblings were. It is possible that that the young Martha Jane MEWBORN traveled with HUDGINS/HUDGENS family from GA. The wagon train went from Atlanta up to TN, across N AL and N MS before going to the ARK/TX area. People left the train during the trip and settled in those areas, scattering the info over several states. If you go back to GA in the 1880's to TX/AR then it's possible you may have some some of my missing family history. All info is appreciated and will share what info I have on the MEWBORN family and the siblings of Martha Jane Mewborn. Also the names of the Sullivan children born to Martha and George Washington SULLIVAN. Thank you!
