Other Members of the Henebry Family    

Four adult Henebry  males were aboard the Argyle.  It is believed they were nephews of David, the sons of his brothers James, Thomas and Michael.

  • James Henebry age 30 and his wife Ellen Kenny age 25, with three children:  Bridget, Thomas and Michael.  James and Ellen and their family settled in DuPage County, IL. James and Ellen were married in the Church of Christ the King in Galbally on Aug 2, 1842.  The witnesses were John O'Connell and John Skehan.  Bridget was baptized on April 22, 1843 with sponsors James Kenny and Mary Henebry.
  • William age 23 married and settled in Grundy County, IL.   He later moved to Wesley Township in Will County, IL and lived near David Henneberry II.    More on William
  • John Henebry age 20.  We have no records for John.
  • Henry Henebry age 20.   Henry may have moved to Missouri. 
  • Bess age 18.  No further information on Bess.  She may have died in DuPage County.

John, Henry and Bess are probably the children of Thomas and Elizabeth Bailey Henebry of Kilscanlan.  William and James could be the children of James Henebry.

  The Hennebry House was under construction at the same time the World's Fair opened in Chicago in 1893. Many generations of the Hennebry family lived in this home. In 1914, when Thomas Hennebry began working in real estate, there were up to seven people boarding there.

Here is a "painted lady" that stands apart, located in Joliet's historic Upper Bluff Historic Area, a section of town also known as the Cathedral Area. Church bells of several churches ring in this area at noon and 5 p.m. each day.

  "The thing that makes this house so significant is the free forms the architect used to create the exquisite exterior. While the structure is generally classified as Victorian, its delightful castle-like gingerbread look and variety of exterior Dutch and Moorish treatments earn the house extra architectural high marks.

  Aesthetically, with a slender main turret and two decorative shingled window column turrets, it is extremely easy on the eye, which cannot be said of many elaborate painted ladies. Melody Hochevar, who is a historic home specialist who renovated her own historic home, called Hennebry House "one of the three best and most unique historic homes in its neighborhood."

  Hennebry House is a two-story with attic with four bedrooms and approximately 3,000 square feet of space, counting its three enclosed porches. The house has 12 rooms, including a music room, parlor and huge formal dining room. The original walnut curved staircase is breathtaking."
