Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 318, Jackson Township, White County, Indiana

"LYMAN W. HENRY, MD, was born in Massachusetts February 26, 1817, and is one of eight children born to WILLIAM and RHODA (DAVISON) HENRY. He was reared on a farm, and also learned carpentering. In the fall of 1839, in Crawford County, Pennsylvania, he began the study of medicine under DR. ROBINS, and two years later began practicing. In 1845, he located at Centerville, Ohio, and read one year with DR. HEWIT. In 1846, he came to this county and settled on the present site of Burnettsville. On the 12th of December, that year, he received his first call in the new location, and from that time until the spring of 1848 was kept busy in his practice; he then returned to Pennsylvania, where he remained three years, recruiting his health; he next passed a year in Mayville, Wisconsin, and then came back to Burnettsville, and is now enjoying an extensive and lucrative practice; he has been three times married - first, December 20, 1839, to MISS HANNAH PERRY, who was born in Canada July 30, 1820, and who bore him one son, EDGAR B., now a druggist at Burnettsville. His second marriage, November 29, 1865, was to NANCY SMITH, who was born in Cincinnati, April 8, 1829. July 16, 1868, he married REBECCA (ADWELL) BALL, daughter of WILLIAM ADWELL, and born in Virginia December 16, 1831. To this union has been born one daughter, MARY ELLA. DR. HENRY has filled the offices of Coroner, Township Trustee, Secretary of Board of Health and Corporation Trustee, and he and wife are Seventh-Day Adventists."
