He was about2 years younger than his brother Lindsey and they worked together and often lived near each other. Records do not indicate that he followed in his father's footsteps in holding public office, but it is known he was interested in community affairs. In 1823-24 wheen L. L. COPPEDGE had a store at the site of Newburg, Henson COPPEDGE built a "still" on Little Piney. He operated thisbusiness for a short time then moved it to Spring Creek near Relfe, MO. This was the first distillery in this section of the Ozarks. The pure whiskey sold for 20 cents a quart, and it has been pointed out that it contained no fighting ingredient. At one time Henson owned a farm near Relfe, and old timers in the area still speak of the "Henson COPPEDGE Place". This farm had the finest spring in that part of the country. My oldest sister, who was 92 years old this year (1981), distinctly remembers the farm and the spring. Uncle Robert Cowan (Dr. Cowan) and wife Sarah "Sally" COPPEDGE - daught of Lindsey L. COPPEDGE lived at this place before moving to Edgar Prairie. Dad moved his family there after his brother moved away, a oldest brother and sister attended their first school from this place. Henson married Nancy KITCHENS sometime between 1828 and 1831. As their children became school age they had private tutors and later attended t local school with friends and family. He was a prosperous merchant in Pulaski, (later Phelps) for many yearsand lived to be 88 years old. He died in November 1888 - and his descendants are scattered over the United States, many of whom follow Henson's footsteps and are prominent in their community.
