Henry received his medical education and training at the Memphis Hospital Medical College where he was awarded his
M.D. Degree in 1912. He began his practice of medicine in Potts Camp, Marshall County, MS. After his marriage to
Joyner in 1914, they moved to Lula, Mississippi in Coahoma County. He practiced there for about a year before his
brother-in-law, Leslie Hall and his sister Emma, moved nearby. Henry enjoyed the rural practice of medicine, but he missed
the facilities of a large hospital. They had made a number of lasting friendships in Lula, but when he had the opportunity
to move to Tupelo and to join that medical facility came in 1920, they moved there. He became a highly successful doctor
in Tupelo and he was instrumental in promoting the growth and progress of this fine hospital.
Henry served for many years on the Board of Trustees of the First Methodist Church in Tupelo. He became a Mason and a
Shriner. He was loving and caring in his personal and professional relationship. He had a marvelous sense of humor and
was quite a raconteur.
He was proud of his family. Joyner took great pride in her home, her family and her personal appearance. They adopted a
daughter who was less then a week old when she came into their house. She was appropiately name "Joye" and both
Henry and Joyner loved her more than life itself.
