George Rettig Henry was born on this date . . . the 21st day of August . . . in the year 1897 . . . in Milam County, Texas. He was the 1st-born son of Edgar and Berta Mary (Sharp) Henry. I knew him as "Uncle George" but he was actually my grand-uncle -- aka older brother of my maternal grandpa. Uncle George and Aunt Ruth lived sorta catty-cornered behind our house when we were growing up -- we could walk through the pasture to get to their back door, which was always open. My Mom still makes Aunt Ruth's coconut pie for family gatherings.
