JAMES AND SAMUEL HENRY (COUSINS OF PATRICK HENRY)

 

     The Henry brothers were Revolutionary War soldiers from Hanover County, Virginia.  They served in 1776, James was a private and Samuel a quartermaster sergeant and later a militis Captain.

     Samuel came to Washington County, North Carolina (now Tennessee) in 1778.  He and James settled on land between Little River and the Little Tennessee River.  Samuel set aside land for a Cumberland Presbyterian Church on his land years before he had legal title.  Baker's Creek Church was organized in 1796.  Samuel got his land grant signed by Governor John Sevier in 1801.

   Samuel built Henry's Fort in 1790.  In 1792 he built Samuel Henry's Station on US Highway 441.  In 1795 Governor Blount appointed him to select a county seat for Blount County.  He named Maryville for the Governor's wife, Mary.  In 1796, Samuel received a permit to build a mill out of brick.  Thus, the community of Brick Mill was developed.   When Samuel died there was some speculation that his cook had poisoned him because he sold some of her kin.
