Narrative

When Robert John was a small boy, both his parents died in a plague. It might have been cholera. A family named Henry, but of no relation, took Robert John into their home and raised him as their son. The day they arrived at their farm he saw a pretty little girl standing by the well. he said to someone near by "When I grow up, I am going to marry that little girl." In May, 1863, he married that little girl, Elmira Henry. - Ruth Henry West
This explains the same last name.
