John "Dink" Henson of Simpson Co, Kentucky - new information

Classification: Query
Surnames: Henson, Hunt
I recently obtained John "Dink" Henson's Civil war pension packet from the National Archives and thought I would share the information. John was born about 1840 in Kentucky and died 18 Dec 1877. John married Mahala Hunt on the 2 or 20 Nov 1860. They were married by the Rev. Ben Herrington in Simpson County, Kentucky. Children listed in the records for John and Mahala are:
1. J. W. born 10 of Mar 1864 ( this is John William "Willie" Henson. Willie died 29 June 1952 in Simpson Co, Ky and is buried in Greenlawn Cemetery, Simpson Co, Kentucky. He married 1st Sarah Frances Kirby and 2nd Myrtle Gibson)
2. G.E. Henson 7 Oct 1867 ( This is George E Henson who died 14 Mar 1909 and is buried in the Salem United Methodist Church Cemetery in Simpson Co, Ky)
3. V.F. Henson 22 May 1869 Per the records but Cemetery book lists 1872 as year of birth. ( This is Evangaline "Vannie" Henson. She married Green B Delk)
Mahala apparently remarried on the 20th of March 1883 to M. F. Henson in Simpson Co, Kentucky. Any ideas who this might be???
I have scanned images of the Declaration for Widows pension and the marriage certificate for Mahala and M.F. Henson. I also have another pension document. If interested just email me and I will send them to you.

Madonna,
Included inside a union case containing a picture of Dink Henson was a handwritten note that stated: " Dink Henson, grandmother Malvina Moore's brother, brother to Uncle Bill Henson, his daughter was Evangaline." I was sent this picture in it's case with a copy of the note by another researcher. If you would like a scanned copy of the note and picture, send me an email address and I will send them to you. I also have Mahala's application for widows pension where I obtained most of my information. I descend from Vannies brother John William "Willie" Henson. I have dates, marriages, and children on Vannies siblings if you would like that information also.

Would you know if any of the children of M and M.F. were named Nancy A? I am looking for my great grandmother and I have no idea where to start although one person thinks maybe Arkansas but I've had very little luck. If you have any info on a Nancy A. Henson I would welcome the info.
Thank you.
