David Henneberry (1798-1849) born in County Limerick
Jane Cushing Henneberry (1802-March 1881) born in County Tipperary
Along with eleven of their twelve children and eight other relatives left the Port of Cork, Ireland aboard the Ship Argyle and landed in the Port of New York City on June 17, 1848. Some of the family members settled in Brooklyn, New York and Waterbury, Conn. Many of the family traveled west and settled in DuPage, Will and Grundy counties in Illinois. In 1850 most of the family was living in Braceville in Grundy County. Since Braceville is only nine miles from Wilmington in Will County, several grandchildren were born in Wilmington rather than Morris, the county seat of Grundy County which was about 22 miles away.
Other Henebry's aboard the Argyle: William - age 23, (Passaic Fire
Department 1877), John - age 20.
