Henning, farmer, one-half mile west of Knottsville, was born in this precinct, three miles southeast of Knottsville, Feb. 20, 1838, and is a son of William Henning, recently of this precinct, of whom we shall speak further his personal sketch. Our subject was brought up on the farm, and had little or no educational advantages, except in the field at hard work. He was married Feb. 19, 1860, to Miss Susan C. Hagan, daughter of Benedict Hagan. This union has been blessed with thirteen children, of whom ten are living – Raymond I., William B., Sarah A., Susan E., Mary E., Hillary H., Zachariah, Emmeline J., Frances B. and Nora. Mr. Henning owns 133 acres of valuable land, and is engaged in farming and stock-raising. He is a Catholic Knight.
