The Note above that calls Henry's age into question because of his age being 28 in the 1850 census and his mother Prudence was 38 does not consider that Prudence was his step-mother. His mother Sally Ward Gurganus died when he was 6 years old. It may also be noted that Henry married his step-mother's sister (no kin to him) Claricy Hutchins Ange.
