Hello., My name is George Henderson and I,m trying to find out some information on my family.Could you please help me?

I'm trying to do a family tree for my son and im stuck. Everyone that might of had any information is gone. My fathers name was Charles Ernest Henderson b.in will county IL. 12-25-1918 d.12-30-1987. his father was Milton Henderson or Milton Gatliff and or maybe adopted b.in Ky 2-3-1893 d.date unknown. Was married to a Ruth Eristine Phares b.in Mclean county IL 11-14-1896 d.4-8-1947. His father (Milton) was William T Henderson b.11-07-1868 in Tn.d.9-7-1933. His wife was Mary Alice Portwood b.11-7-1868 Briceville Tn. Her parents name were John Portwood & Mary unknown.

Here's the problem............... I found on the 1910 Census out of Anderson county Tn that the William T Henderson and Mary Alice Henderson listed shows a Milton Gatliff age 18 as a stepson. So that tells me my grand father was adopted right???? Can anyone other then a human robot tell me how i can go about finding out how to obtain more information on this matter. I'm 48 yrs old have high blood pressure am half bald with no hair left to pull out and almost died five yrs ago. Just trying to do something for my son before its to late.

In addition, I'm searching for Family information on Arthur Martin b.May 9 1900 Tn. Lucille Mae Prewett Martin b.May 3 1913 possible Alabama. Amy Martin b.Dec 3rd or 4th 1934 of Tn. Who married a Hubert Cox of Tennesse. Arthur Martin Jr of Tn born July 15 1938 married Thompson.

Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.

I have traced roots from present to as far back in time as I can go. I am looking for decendents of James T. and Susan C. Henderson and their children Robert, Thomas, Mary, William, Samuel, and Nathaniel. Nathaniel will not appear on any census because I believe great-great-great Grandma Susan was pregnant after the 1860 TN census. He does appear with the rest of the family in the Searcy county 1880 Arkansas census. I believe my great-great-great Grandpa was killed in the Civil War. There seems to be only half million James T.'s in the CSA in TN, but none from Warren County. I also believe his father is Pleasant Henderson of Warren County Tn. Someone please email me so I can complete this mystery. This is a great site and I appreciate the information that has been provided.

Harris (Minnie Harris Hendersons sister).There are also two other graves there that have stones but no info. and I was told that George and Minnie was burried there. I was named after these two grandfathers but I don't know anything about them and don't have any family living that would know anything . If any one has any information please let me know. I feel empty not knowing anything about my mothers family. I never met my grandfather because he died nine months before I was born, every one says that I look just like him.

Hi Robert,
Thanks for posting the Tennessee Henderson info!
Samuel H (1737-1818) who died in Rutherford County, was our original Tennessee ancestor. He was the grandson of Samuel H. and Elizabeth Williams and son of Thomas H. and Ann Jane Martin. My grandmother was a Henderson. I'm very interested in learning more about our Hendersons. Your bibliography looks very intriguing. I look forward to learning more!
Thanks again!
Your distant cousin,

You have a great site for Henderson. I am doing my wife's Henderson side of the family. My wife is the GG-Granddaughter of James Talbert Henderson, born in 1824 in the area of Bean Station, Grainger, TN. He married Phoebe Ann Bloom in 1844 in Ste. Genevieve, MO. He died in 1914 and three weeks ago, we found his gravesite at the the Cedar Fork Methodict Church, near Silver Lake, MO. Census records indicate having a brother named Benjamin F. Henderson, born in 1821 in Tennessee. At that point, everything becomes a brick wall. Continuing to look through your site hoping to knock down the wall. Thanks.

He later moved to Grainger County in Rutledge and is buried in Jefferson County in the Peck Cemetery. His brother, Nicholas from Monroe County, was mentened in one of your posts, along with his wife Nancy. I am wanting to find kin of Mary or Polly if that was her name. It looks like in the post that a Henderson had a son named Benjamin Peck Henderson...I would like to find out who this is.

Comments:
The name combination I am researching in Blount County, Tennessee is "Henderson" and "Currier" and "Tipton". The Henderson and Currier familes joined together in the marriage of Thomas Henderson and Christina Currier on 24 March 1818. Thomas was a lawyer who was an advocate or agent frequently documented in the Blount county court records. When Thomas and Christiana died, their minor children given to the care of Mr. Ake Henry for a short period. When Thomas's oldest daughters married two boys named Tipton, the whole family including the minor children departed Blount County and mirgrated first to Washington County Illinois and then to Benton County, Missouri. I would love to make connection with anyone doing Henderson, Currier, or Tipton genelaogy in Blount County.

Thank you,

James E. Henderson

I know that Elijah Henderson was burried in a cemetary in New Hope,TN/Long Island,TN just outside of South Pittsburge,TN. He was burried next to Hattie I. Harris (Minnie Harris Hendersons sister).There are also two other graves there that have stones but no info. and I was told that George and Minnie was burried there. I was named after these two grandfathers but I don't know anything about them and don't have any family living that would know anything except for two aunts that dont care anything about there name sake. If any one has any information please let me know. I feel empty not knowing anything about my mothers family. I never met my grandfather because he died nine months before I was born, every one says that I look just like him.

How did you find this site? Google search for Adam Wilson
Comments:
I've got four men named DICKSON who I believe came from the Greene/Jefferson County area. Three of the four men appear in Dickson Co. records ca. 1803-1822. Associated names appear to be WILSON (especially Adam WILSON), WOODS, STEWART, and COWAN.

The four men I've identified as:

Dry Branch Hugh DICKSON (Dickson Co. TN)
Bear Creek James DICKSON (Dickson Co. TN to Perry Co. TN)
Raccoon Creek John DICKSON (Dickson Co. TN)
Bartons Creek Joseph DICKSON (Montgomery Co. TN)

Bartons Creek Joseph DICKSON m. Martha COWAN in Jefferson Co.

Dry Branch Hugh DICKSON may have married Mary COWAN also from Jefferson Co.

Bear Creek James DICKSON m. Margaret Ann WILSON

Bear Creek James DICKSON had one son name William Kennedy DICKSON (Wiliam KENNEDY appears in Greene Co.)

Dry Branch Hugh DICKSON bought 150 acres in Dickson Co. from David WILSON in 1803.

All trails seem to lead to Greene/Jefferson Counties but I can't get a handle on the families yet. Any help would be appreciated.

Our family is searching for the origins of our oldest known grandfather, John Henderson Phillips,b. 1745, who married Rachel (UNK). The name Henderson has puzzled us for some time. One avenue that has not been persued is a theory that perhaps, his middle name was that of his mother's line or paternal grandmother. It is possible that you may have information regarding our grandfather. Other family from that era came out of the Johnson, Carter, and Hawkins County area.
Thank you,
