I am researching my HENRY surname of Catahoula Parish. The oldest member I have found was on the 1870 Census: John HENRY. Since I don't have any family stories to go by, I would like to know where the name originated from. I have not found a plantation or owner by this name. If you know otherwise, please let me know. Or, if you know what family plantation they were on, I would love to know. Thank You for your assistance.
