    From the Bethany Echo: Friday July 31, 1908.

    "James Henneberry, Dalton City:  James Henneberry died at his home in Dalton City Tuesday after a long illness.  He was born Feb. 3, 1832 and was a prosperous farmer near here for thirty-five years, the last fourteen years of which he has lived in town.  He leaves a wife and six children to mourn his death.   Four daughters, Mrs. Margaret Waddell of Kansas City, Mrs. Emma Kinney, Mrs. Lizzie Kinney, Mrs. Agnes Bresnan of Dalton City, and two sons, David Henneberry of Bethany and Ambrose Henneberry of Chicago.  The remains were interred in St. Isadore cemetery.   A host of friends sympathize with the bereaved family."

    From the Bethany Echo:  Friday August 31, 1917.

    "Elizabeth Henneberry.   The funeral of Mrs. Elizabeth Henneberry was held at 10 o'clock Friday morning in the Sacred Heart Church.  (Mrs. Henneberry was born May 1, 1837 and died Aug. 22, 1917.)
    Solemn high mass was celebrated with Rev. Fa. Joseph Kiely as celebrant,  Rev. Fa. J. Magner as deacon and Rev. Fa. Smith as master of ceremonies.   Rev. Fa. Kiely and Rev. Fa. Magner are both nephews of Mrs. Henneberry.
    Music was furnished by the regular choir of the church, with Miss Morrison as accompanist.  The flowers were in charge of Misses Louise and Margaret Vollmer, Nina Wehmoff, Marie Foley, Loretta Burns and Louise Henneberry, all nieces of the deceased.
    The pallbearers were Edward Foley, Ray and Leo Kinney, Thomas Magner, William and Emmett Henneberry, Homer Dunn and Merrill Wehmoff, all nephews of Mrs. Henneberry.  The internment was in St. Isidore's Cemetery.

     Continued confusion regarding spelling of surname. 

The Moultrie County death certificate for James is spelled Henneberry.   The death certificate for Elizabeth is spelled  Henebery, and the gravestone is spelled Heneberry.  Ship's manifests from the 1840's listed the name as Henebry, Heneberry and Henerbry.  The Catholic Church in Bethany is spelled as St. Isadore and as St. Isidore.  Ship's clerks, census takers, newspaper reporters and others appear to have used "phonics" to spell names and places.  Dates also were subject to errors.   Obituaries were also subject to inaccurate descriptions.
