Need help on Henry family. Robert Henry b. 1824 d. 1916 married Lydia Fogel d./o Daniel Fogel and Mary Coffman.
Robert claims his parents are Daniel and Rebecca. Daniel was b. 1812. Rebecca Cane Henry b. 1812. don't see how this possible. Could be a brother? But who is there parents? He is living with Daniel and Rebecca in 1850 census. Rebecca is the d/o William Cane. Any help would be greatly appreciated. These are all from Shenadoah County, VA.

You are correct that the ages of Daniel HENRY and Rebecca CANE are not consistant with being the parents of Robert William HENRY according to the 1850 Census. On the 1850 Census, Daniel 38 and Robert is 26. This is only a difference of 12 years. When looking at the 1860 Census, Daniel is now 49 and Robert, 28. This shows a 21 year difference and, therefore, the possible father/son relationship is not so unlikely.
Daniel HENRY's death was reported March 1887 at the age of 92. The informant was his son, Walker. (Register of Deaths, 1871-1891, City of Winchester, VA, Page 4, line 28). This would put Danield HENRY's birth date around 1795.
Robert HENRY's death certificate lists his father as Daniel HENRY and his mother as Rebecca HENRY. The information was provided by his daughter, Mrs. Edward McFarland (Martha V.)
If you have any additioan information on the FOGLE (FOGEL), CANE and HENRY families, please let me know. I only have a small amount on Rebecca CANE.

I noticed your reply about the Cain family.

You have a William Cain b 1766. Do you have any other info on him?

I am researching a William Cain (b1774?) in Virginia, but I don't know where in Virginia. I believe this William married a Margaret.

I thought they might be the same person (though the dates are a little off). If you have any info, let me know. Thanks,

Unfortunately, I have no specifics on William Cane and Ann Palmer.
