    Hello fellows….congrats on another great series of stories…. I have a similar situation with my forefather Jacob Winey, who married late for his time and his wife did not have her only child until in her 40s! It does happen of course. There seems to be a lot of missing data…but loads of theories. (One of my aunts adopted 3 children and then became pregnant at 42!) How lucky you are to get a new perspective on Henry’s times…..! Our ancestors’ lives could get complicated as there seems to be little new in human nature! Is Life just about temptations and Death????

      Thanks, Robert! Yes, there are so many angles to pursue and explore, as you know as well. There are many holes and missing pieces to the puzzle too. That is a great story about your aunt and the adoptions followed by the biological child. Thanks for continuing to read our site 🙂
