Henry became known as John Henry Smith Sr. due to an altercation with the law. He was running liquid refreashment during Proabition. He got caught and his brother who did not keep his money in a bank but in his mattress at home took the money and bride the jailer and got him out of jail. My great Uncle Isaac also helped him get a regular job at a coal mine. Later when the G-men came looking, my grandfather was using the name of John Henry as he hated his middle name of Morley and just as soon fight ya as to let anyone use that as his name.
