  • Notes 
    • Also called Teresa Lahey, Laher, Larsha. Called on her marriage record "Latney Larsha", as best we can make out.

      The 1850 census of LaRue County includes "Tho Laha", 7, daughter of "Danl D Laha". The writing is very light; what looks like "Tho" could easily be "The". The 1860 census record of what is clearly the same family in LaRue County, despite some inconsistencies, includes "Teresa Laha", 15, daughter of "Danl Layha". The 9 Jan 1916 death certificate of Theresa Henderson, daughter of Daniel Laha and Katherine Hale (both born in Ireland) gives her a birth date of 30 Dec 1950, but we're inclined to believe that the 1850 and 1860 census records are closer to the truth, and that she was probably born around 1844.
