Per the 1870 census of Barry Co., Mo. the parents of your Alfred Henbest were Albert and Octavia Henbest. Albert was born circa 1821 in Eng. and Octavia in Va. They had at least 8 children including your Alfred, all born in Clark Co., Ill. Sophia was probably Albert's mother. I don't know anything about William because he died early. If you want to find out a lot about Albert, look at the Internets World Connect Project and type in Albert Henbest. It will give Octavia's maiden name etc. Bob Eddings - no relation.
