bullet  General Notes:

Son of James and Eliza (Poole) Henning. Family legend says he travelled with his family from Kentucky to Illinois in 1861 with the family of his future bride. No record can be found of his parents after 1850. They are thought to have died in Daviess County, KY before 1870. Charles Henning, age 16, is listed as a Farm Hand in the household of John Blanton of Curdsville, KY in the 1870 Federal Census. He married Bertha Bowlds on Nov. 18, 1879 at St. Edward's Catholic Church in Fairfield, Illinois. They had 11 children, 7 died in infancy including their 3 sons. Their children were:

Leonora Ann 1880-1880
Julia Beatrice 1882-1973
Mary Elizabeth 1884-1967
Paul Joseph 1886-1886
Frances Winnefred 1886-1906
Minnie Margaret 1889-1891
James John 1891-1891
Tresa Magdelena 1893-1979
Charles Joseph 1896-1897
Frances Bertha 1899-1899
Lelah Agness 1904-1904

The family moved to a farm near Maunie in White Co., IL about 1885, where the last eight children were born. They returned to Fairfield about 1905 and lived in the city. He was listed as a farmer in 1880 & 1900. The 1910 Census says he has his own income, probably rent from houses he owned in Fairfield. The 1920 census says he was a Laborer doing Street Work. That may be street maintenance work, but I think it is simply waiting on the street for someone who needs a work crew.
He left a will which was probated in Wayne County in 1922, leaving everything to his beloved wife.


Charles married Bertha Anne Bowlds. (Bertha Anne Bowlds was born in 1859, died on 25 Apr 1948 in Salem, Marion County, Illinois, USA and was buried in Maple Hill Cemetery, Fairfield, Wayne County, Illinois, USA.)
