The Gettysburg Address (19 November 1863) Based on the signed "Bliss Copy"

 

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow, this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Abraham_Lincoln#The_Lyceum_Address_.281838.29

Abraham Lincoln’s Quotes - http://home.att.net/~howingtons/abe.html

 

I will not for get the sacrifices Americans on both sides of the conflict between the states endured for what they believed in, and am thankful the Henions of the Civil War didn’t fight against each other.

 

My great grandfather David Todd’s father, Charles Henry Henion, born in New York in 1846, was 16-years old when the the Civil War began in April 1861 between the northern and southern states of America. Border States of U.S. capital Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky, Missouri and West Virginia, supported slavery.

 

“The north did not agree with slavery, but the south did and loyalties were heatedly divided. Maryland was forced to stay in the Union -- Lincoln could not afford to have the U.S. capital in the midst of the Confederacy. West Virginia became a border state halfway through the war when the western counties of Virginia sympathized with the Union and broke away. Virginia was the site of the most Civil War battles, and also held the most slaves. Border States had soldiers who fought for either side, often pitting brother against brother. 620,000 men died. Not all were killed in battle; diseases -- measles, pneumonia, bronchitis, dysentery -- killed twice as many soldiers as battle.”

 

When I was in grade school, I spent as much time with my great grandfather as I could and I remember him telling me, his father’s relation were in the Civil War but that his father never spoke of the great war between the states as it impacted him so much and he couldn’t share with me the history of the Henions of the Civil War, but that they were my ancestors. The only record I have of the Henions of the Civil War is from the Halbert’s Family Heritage book (MCMXCVIII) which lists the Muster Roll and 36 Henons born from 1775 to 1880, while today there are around 250 Henions that carry the name with countless siblings who assumed the name of their husbands.

 

I do not professes that there are any heroes in my ancestry, only that they served and many most likely died, while one day the actual historical account will most likely be released by Henion families whom have not shared their family history publicly. It’s difficult to trace the Henion family genealogy without combined family records, but we all have the same beginning and our forefathers are the same.

 

My father now is proud of me I'm sure, but when I joined the Navy he boycotted my graduation. Now he’s a constitutional ranger as many years ago he evolved and followed his personal religious beliefs rather then an institution or a man. Sometimes you have to break out for yourself and your own ideas.

America United - Edgar Corral

 

Time and again, I find myself constantly reminded of how blessed, honored, and privileged I am to have been born in the United States of America. I cannot imagine having been born elsewhere, nor could I imagine living elsewhere. The opportunities, the freedoms, my country has provided me with are innumerable, and I cannot thank her enough for them, and I will, as the song goes, “(always) gladly stand up, next to you, and defend her still today, ‘cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land, God bless the U.S..”

 

“Americans come from all different ethnic, religious, political, and social backgrounds, and while the expectations of the international community may have been a nation divided and fallen within the first few minutes of its existence, we have, in spite of our many differences, been – and still are – united as one, big family. This has never been more evident than on September 11, 2001. While terrorists sought to “divide and conquer” us, they only succeeded in uniting us more than ever before. On that infamous day, engraved deep in our hearts and memory, there were no Democrats, no Republicans, no liberals, and no conservatives – there were only Americans. We stood up to and faced together an enemy that declared war on us simply because we were Americans. The enemy made no distinction between black, white, brown, or yellow Americans; it made no distinction between liberal and conservative Americans; it made NO distinction at all. Likewise, we, as Americans, must make no distinction among ourselves on our war on terror.

My fellow Americans... let us remain united! Let not our political, religious, ethnic, and social differences be a source of division. Rather, let our being Americans be our only source of unity. When we realize that our differences are of secondary importance when combating the enemy – as we did on September 11 – will we be able to maintain that unity so evident on that infamous day for centuries to come. - God bless America!” - Edgar Corral

“Let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania! Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado! Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California! But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia! Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee! Let freedom ring from every hill and every molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring. And when this happens, when we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old negro spiritual, "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"

Freedom Protected By U.S MARINESAaron M. Gilbert


Freedom
(November 28, 2005)

In my life, I have had wanted nothing more than what I now am, a Marine. A single, six letter word that speaks volumes to multitudes. Just the name, Marine, carries pride, honor and courage. Many men join for many different reasons, but they all start off with the same goal along the way, to become a Marine. To be one of the few, the proud. Proud, pride, strength when united. Every background, every creed and every color. All come together under the same promise. The promise to protect this country against all enemies, foreign and domestic. All who join have accepted this price, this calling. The price of having to leave all behind, to journey to a country where people hate you, and all you stand for.

The American Dream, Martin Luther King Jr's Dream and the Dream of our Forefathers. This dream of freedom and the right to preserve it. And who is called upon to undertake this task, the United States Marines. We rise to the call to lay down our lives. We fight and die for the freedom that some people cherish, some people spit upon and the very freedom that most people think they deserve. But who really deserves this freedom, the People or the Patriot.

Thomas Jefferson said it best when he said, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the bloodshed of patriots and tyrants."

But how many really understand and believe that statement. How many know what it is like to sleep alone, cold, humbled and unappreciated. How many know what it is like to lose a friend or loved one who fought and died for the freedoms you were given. And how many have received a folded American flag, followed by a 21 Gun Salute. How many, we don't know. But whatever the number, they are the ones who gave so much for their Country and freedom that they lost it all.

Our Nation will see our conflicts on T.V., they will see our men and women, our sons and daughters who have openly accepted the possibility of death, and they will turn the channel without a second thought.

But you remember this. While you sleep at night with your parents, your wife, your children, there are always men out there awaiting the call to lay their lives down, and as J.F.K. said in his Inaugural Speech, "In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility - I welcome it..."”

HENSIONS OF THE CIVIL WAR

 

I’m open minded and search fundamental truths, excepting into my heart the diversity of Christianity while reserving the right to believe that all men and women were created equal under God.

The Henion’s of the Civil War paid a high price for these freedoms, freedoms that many in the world often taken for granted and so many in the Middle East whom neither desire or no what it is to be free.

The most important freedom to me, is the freedom of religion, yet to have freedoms, we must support the freedom of others whether we agree or support their lustful behaviors.

“To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest Glory to add the more distinguished Character of Christian. -George Washington - Washington Prays at Valley Forge
http://www.pvbr.com/Issue_1/gwprays.htm

 

Henion’s of the Civil War were posted on the MAIL CALL FORUM during July 2006 on the thread Taps Part I, II, III, IV AND THE FINAL PART IS UP TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE http://rleeermey.org/viewtopic.php?t=9313 in an effort to bring attention to those who dishonor our fallen Patriots:

The only record I had at the time of posting TAPS was from the Halbert’s Family Heritage book (MCMXCVIII) which lists the Muster Roll and 36 Henons born from 1775 to 1880 and Cheryl Hennion Hahn research now highlights even more Henions that served in the Civil War, while today there are around 250 Henions that carry the name with countless siblings who assumed the name of their husbands. Since my posting, Cheryl Hennion Hahn has shared with me her research.

My great grandfather David Todd’s father, Charles Henry Henion, born in New York in 1846, was 16-years old when the the Civil War began in April 1861 between the northern and southern states of America. Border States of U.S. capital Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky, Missouri and West Virginia, supported slavery.

“The north did not agree with slavery, but the south did and loyalties were heatedly divided. Maryland was forced to stay in the Union -- Lincoln could not afford to have the U.S. capital in the midst of the Confederacy. West Virginia became a border state halfway through the war when the western counties of Virginia sympathized with the Union and broke away. Virginia was the site of the most Civil War battles, and also held the most slaves. Border States had soldiers who fought for either side, often pitting brother against brother. 620,000 men died. Not all were killed in battle; diseases -- measles, pneumonia, bronchitis, dysentery -- killed twice as many soldiers as battle.”

When I was in grade school, I spent as much time with my great grandfather as I could and I remember him telling me, his father’s relation were in the Civil War but that his father never spoke of the great war between the states as it impacted him so much and he couldn’t share with me the history of the Henions of the Civil War, but that they were my ancestors.

I do not professes that there are any heroes in my ancestry, only that they served and many most likely died, while one day the actual historical account will most likely be released by Henion families whom have not shared their family history publicly. It’s difficult to trace the Henion family genealogy without combined family records, but we all have the same beginning and our forefathers are the same.

My father now is proud of me I'm sure, but when I joined the Navy he boycotted my graduation. Now he’s a constitutional ranger as many years ago he evolved and followed his personal religious beliefs rather then an institution or a man. Sometimes you have to break out for yourself and your own ideas.

It s not known how many Henions may have lost there lives in battle, or if they suffered the loss of a limb prior to their death or died as a result of their injury or for that matter how many by the grace of God lived through the War, while research does show some lived after the war. To date all Hensons have not combined family records.

In the Union Army, approximately 100,000 troops were 16 years old, an equal number 15 years old. Some were as young as ten. According to regulations, boys younger than 16 could be enlisted as “musicians,” and every company was entitled to two field musicians. Many were drummer boys or buglers. Since there were approximately 20,000 companies between the Union and Confederacy, there could have been as many as 40,000 such musicians. The musicians’ signals led men into battle and also told the troops when to retreat. These brave young soldiers could often be seen at the head of the charge, relaying the commander’s orders. Other younger enlistees were “powder monkeys” and supported the war effort by working aboard the floating ironclads, and some enlisted without permission. Henions were not musicians, drummers or "power monkeys."

Jackson Henion whose name appears on the Battle Monument at West Point Military Academy. In the Hennion research papers my mother left me was a notation with his name and the fact of where she saw it. Upon review of his pension file, Cheryl Hennion Hahn found out that her family are from the same general line and that his grandfather sold land near where I lived and close to where my mother had a street in Parsippany, Morris Co., NJ, named Hennion Drive. If you know the area, it's right off Park Road which runs between Routes 202 and 53.Jackson Henions parents were John Henion and Jane Jones. John was a son of Cornelius Hennion and Ann Mandeville who lived in Waterloo, NY. Cornelius Hennion was the son of my ancestor John D. Hennion and his first wife Catelyntie De Mott. John had altogether 16 children with two wives.Jackson had three sisters named Catharine A., Eliza J., and Helen M. and a younger brother William Henry Henion who was a teenager when Jackson was William Henry Henion who was a teenager when Jackson was killed August 30, 1862, Second Battle of Bull Run, Civil War; their father John had died in 1853. Years ago Cheryl Hennion Hahn vacationed in Waterloo and Seneca Falls, NY, to do research. At the National Women's Hall of Fame she saw a large map on the wall and could see that although Cornelius and his son John lived on different streets, their backyards came together. As she recalls, Memorial Day was first celebrated in that area and we visited the Memorial Day Museum. She was very surprised to find that there was nothing there mentioning the sacrifice of Andrew Jackson Henion. She had a picture of the West Point Monument enlarged for framing and inserted some text about him below it.

The following summarizes important facts from the pension file of Corporal Peter Henion:

Soldier filed Declaration for Original Invalid Pension at Sussex, NJ, 16 April 1890. Enrolled 27 Aug 1861, age 20, in Company "K" 1st Regt. NJ Cav. Vol. commanded by Joseph Brooks and was honorably discharged at Warrington (VA) 31 Dec 1863. Personal description as follows: age 50 years; height 6 ft.; complexion, dark; hair, dark; eyes, gray. In the line of duty at Polick Church in the State of Virginia in January 1862 while carrying dispatch from picket line to headquarters his horse slipped on ice, fell--from said fall he received injuries . . .

Re-enlisted 1 Jan 1864 as a Vet. Vol. Discharged 28 April 1865.

At the time he enrolled in the service he was a miner. Some documents show a middle initial of H.

Widow's Declaration for Pension: 20 June 1902 Alice E. Henion testified that Peter Henion died 29 May 1902. She was then age 57.

Alice E. Castimore and Peter Henion were married 4 July 1867 at Lafayette, NJ, by W. E. Blakeslee. Her residence was West Mountain, Sussex, NJ, and her post office address was Ogdensburg, NJ, at the time this application was signed. William Castimore and Josephine Cole signed as witnesses.

Death certificate is included in the pension. It states that Peter Henyon was age 62 at his death. He was born in NY State. He last resided in Sparta Township, Sussex Co., NJ, and died there. He resided in New Jersey for 45 years. His father was Samuel Henyon born in NY and his mother was Phoebe A. Devon (Adams in brother's pension) born in NY.

Soldier at death left one child under 16 years of age named Hattie Edna Henion who was age 13 on 21 May 1902.

Note: Peter is buried in the Presbyterian Churchyard at Sparta, NJ, not too far from his brothers Henry and Joseph. His name is spelled Hennion on his gravestone. As researched by
Cheryl Hennion Hahn and Surnames are believed to be Henion, Hennion, Henyon, Castimore, Adams and Devon.

Pension for minor child of this couple, Frederick Henion, Canandaigua Agency, $8/month commencing 23 Feb 1863 and ending 14 June 1871. Guardian of child was Walter Gray of Yates, Orleans Co., NY; his post office address is Lyndenville, Orleans Co., NY. Cannot tell if Walter is father of Margaret or brother or what the relationship is.

Frederick Henion born 1 June 1855. Another document says he was born 15 June 1855. Two documents say June 1 and two say June 15. He was born at Berrytown (or Berryburn), Wisconsin. He was the sole surviving child of Simeon M. Henion. Walter Gray gave a sworn statement that Frederick was born June 1 (Monroe Co. Court).

James Rutherford aged 48 years and John Hallet aged 31 years, residents of Yates, Orleans Co., NY, signed statements that Walter Gray was the best person to be guardian of Frederick Henion.

Letter from file:

County of Columbia

Edward Dawes being duly sworn says that he has resided for the ten years last past in the town of Newport of Columbia Co. and State of Wisconsin, that he was acquainted with Simeon M. Henion and his wife Margaret Henion, while they lived and cohabited together at Newport aforesaid. That he is a physician and surgeon and that as such physician and surgeon he attended the said wife of Simeon M. Henion at Newport aforesaid during her confinement about the fifteenth day of June A.D. 1855 and that the said wife of Simeon M. Henion was there and then and in my presence delivered of a male child. All of the above facts I believe to be true and correctly stated.

Letter in pension file:

Gallatin, Tennessee, July 10th/63

Mr. John D. Henion

Sir,

By accident I found a letter written by you to Maj. Cropsy concerning your Brother Simeon. I knew nothing of your whereabout or your Parents until I saw the letter referred to – I wrote to Bradford knowing him to be an acquaintance of Simeon’s. Please find enclosed inventory and final statement which may be of use in the collection of arrearages to his legal heir- I have some little means in my hands subject to orders from proper authority. I have been acquainted with your Brother for several years- Enlisted him at Reading, Ills – and when I assure you that my entire company with myself sympathize with his friends I must also say that he was a man of determination, a good soldier – true to his country.

As a citizen at home loved and respected as a soldier an exception for promptness (?). As an Officer he was a corporal – his disease was consumption – his discharge papers were made out for a month before he died, in fact, as soon as his disease developed itself but he was not able at any time to start home. You are at liberty to ask any question in regard to Simeon and his effects. I will answer, aid and assist as far as able.

Truly yours,

John A. Hoskins
Capt. Canid. Co. A
129th Ills. Vols.

Note: John Kip Henion and Jane Mead were evidently the parents of Simeon. Her father was Simeon Mead. His parents were Tunis and Catharine (Kip) Henion. (See Ancestry.com Gene Pool database regarding this family.)

Tom Fulton believes that he may be related to the family of Cpl. Simeon M. Henion d. Gallatin, TN through his wife Margaret Gray. My interest is in the Gray family. Walter Gray, guardian of Frederick Henion is the brother of Margaret Gray, the wife of Simeon Hennion and Surnames are believed to be Henion, Gray, Mead, Kip.

One of Peggy Henions husbands uncles was named Tunis Henion. Tunis lived in Michigan, the son of William and Della Henion. William's father was David Daniel Henion born in Yates, New York in 1836. His first wife was Fannie Gregg and his second wife was Emma Rouse. His parents were, I believe, John and Ruth Henion, in Yates in 1850.

Wakeman Burr Henion

Rank: Unknown

Henion, Wakeman Burr h/o Jessie, s/o Henry & Catharine (not at NARA) - Wakeman Burr Henion was the son of Henry and Catharine (Burr) Henion. He was also in Co. "I" 126th. He did survive the war and is buried at Restvale Cemetery, Seneca Falls, with his wife, parents, sisters, and an aunt and uncle, Hudson and Sophronia (Henion) Dodge. Cheryl Hennion Hahn recently requested his pension record but the National Archives advised her that they don't have it and suggested an address that she should write to and ask that it be sent to a location in Newark, NJ, where Cheryl can see it. Cheryl Hennion Hahn is trying to obtain pension records for all Hennions. Old correspondence mentions a Henion who announced that President Lincoln was dead. Some things that Cheryl has read online leads her to believe it could have been this young man. The card file maintained by the county historian indicated that he was a clerk in the Provost Marshall's office in Washington, D.C. In my TAPS thread I mentioned my uncle has a copy of a letter from Colonel Henion who made the announcement that Abraham Lincoln was dead. I’ll make sure my uncle sends Lynda a copy of the letter. Maybe one day we find out the answer.

There is only limited evidence that any of my ancestors transferred from unit to unit or that there were only the aforementioned were the only ones as research continues of the Henions reported on the Muster Rolls as serving in the Civil War. As many Henions adopted the same names consistently throughout families.

The Gettysburg Address (19 November 1863) Based on the signed "Bliss Copy"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow, this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

“Let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania! Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado! Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California! But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia! Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee! Let freedom ring from every hill and every molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring. And when this happens, when we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old negro spiritual, "Free at last!

Great Web Site and I like your Resume. French aand Econ too. Wow. I guess you know the Henion's are French, so it only stands to reason that you are attracted to French.
What a surprise to find a Henion that is a Neuroscientist. My name is Loyd Henion. I am a retired after having spent 30 years as the Chief Economist of the Oregon Department of Transportation. I have traveled around the world, but now in retirement I am interested in pursuing my Henion roots.

Here is what I currently know:

My Grandfather was David Todd Henion who was born in Michigan. His parents were Charles Henry Henion and Adelaide Cornish. Charles Henry Henion's father was Peter Henion who was born in New York. I do not know for certain the name of Peter's parents or the county they were living in at the time of Peters birth. Neither do I know who his siblings were.

I know that two brothers came from Holland to New Amsterdam, America on a Dutch boat called "The Fox" in about 1642. One of the brothers was Nathaniel who married Anns Davids Ackermann. The Henions were French Huguenots who had fled to Holland during the height of persecution to Protestants conducted by the State Church around the mid 15th century. They married into Dutch families and came to the New World to find a better life along with many others.

I suspect that all of the US Henion's go back to Nathaniel or his brother. I would very much like to find my g g g grandfather Peter Henion's parents and grandparents. If you or any of the Henion's you know can help me I certainly will be indebted.
