MANY THANKS to Cuzin Emily Boling (descendant of Calvin C. Henry- s/o Riley, s/o Isham 
who died Oct 1844) for contacting NC State Archives and obtaining copies of the Military Warrant 
for the Land Grant in Sumner Co, TN and Warrenton, NC Pay Receipts!  Research continues to find 
out if/how this "Revolution Isham Henry" and John Smith ties in with our ancestor Isham Henry, 
who died in Richmond Co, NC October 1844, and the John Smiths' of neighboring Anson Co, NC.
