A family auction has changed the history of one of the most infamous moments in American history.Read more“The sale of an 11-year-old girl to an Alabama-based woman who is believed to have raped her mother sparked a frenzy that left the family’s life in tatters.“Auctioneer John Henslin, who specializes in antique auctions, is known for his work on the auction block.
He had an original family portrait of his daughter, Ella Henslinton, in the back of his mind.
It was her mother who had taken the family to the Mississippi River, according to Henslins own story.
Henslins family moved to New Orleans after her death, and he was one of two auctioneers involved in the sale.
He was so enamored with the girl that he brought her into his house for the first time and took her to his aunt and uncle’s house to meet his family.
They bonded over their love of horses and the beautiful house, and Ella became his daughter-in-law.
Hennings family never forgot the girl, and she was not forgotten.
A photograph of Ella with her father at the time of her death is still on display in the family home.
Henson was born in Kansas in 1902 and moved to Louisiana after her father, John Henson, died in Alabama.
He lived in New Orleans and was a carpenter.
He died in the early 1930s at age 86.
Henneslin had a son and daughter- in law, and they lived in the house he built in 1927.
He said that his son had grown up in the home with his mother and sisters, and that the daughter had lived with her uncle.
The niece was the only one to live with her family in the area.
He told the New Orleans Times-Picayune that his daughter would occasionally take her father to see him, but the girl never stayed with him.
When he heard about the auction, Henneslin said he knew he had to buy the girl.
He bought the house, along with a lot of other things, and began preparing for the auction.
He did some research, but it was hard to get an appraisal done on the house.
He got the money through a bank, but when he called the bank to find out what was going on, he got no response.
He called the FBI and, a week later, they said that the house was gone.HENSLIN’S STORYAUCTION BATTLEBACKS THE CHALLENGEHenslin’s son, Jack, was in his early 20s when he took Ella and his family to see his father.HENLIN’s son was in the car when he drove Ella to the auction house.
The house was empty.
Jack said he was in shock.
Hensen, however, was more than happy to sell.
He wanted the house because he felt like he had a chance to change history.
He wanted to have something that was so good that it would never go up for auction.
The seller had a lot on it, but they didn’t know if they would get anything at all.HINSLIN WAS A TRICKSTERHenslers mother had died in 1927, and Henslings dad had never been to the house in its current state.
Henslers dad was devastated.
He and his wife moved in with the family and were very proud of what they had.
But after Ella was taken, Hensls father went into an emotional state.
The day of the sale, his emotions were so intense that he drove to the family house and spent the night there.
The next day, he called a friend from a nearby bar and asked if he could come over.
Hinslins son came over, and after a few minutes of talking, Hinslers son decided to take the girl to the home.
Henneslins son had no idea that Ella would become a slave owner, and the boy had no clue that his father had raped her.
The auction was supposed to go ahead and happen on Wednesday, October 4, but Hensels son and his friends did not want to risk a lawsuit.
Hensen had a legal agreement with the seller, so they agreed to move the auction up the day of.
The two were allowed to stay the night, but he was not allowed to take Ella.
He decided to stay and watch the sale and would go home and sleep at his aunt’s house the next morning.
Hinslin decided to call the FBI, and within a few hours, he was contacted by an agent who told him that the sale was cancelled and that Hennesls son and the rest of his family would not be able to come into the home to participate.HELSLIN HOSTS AN OLD-TIME AUCTIONThe agent said that he had no problem with Hensling’s decision
