Which Way Did They Go!
The Clan Henderson has produced a series of booklets about
Hendersons who lived in the different States in 1850. Some data is
available for other years including 1860 and 1870.
In order to help researchers find family members who may have
moved out of Tennessee, I went though all these booklet that are in
print at this time May 2004. Not all States are listed, some states
still need to be printed by the Clan Henderson. They need help for
volunteers to gather this data in the States not yet worked on.
It would be good for readers to obtain these books where you
suspect your family kin may have moved. I hope I did not make any
errors in transcribing these data however, to be sure I urge you to
look at the actual census record.
Some of this data will aid researchers in finding parents not born
in TN who did live in TN and had children born in TN before they
moved to another state.
I found it interesting that not many Hendersons born in TN moved
back east in the United States. If they left TN they usually moved
west. As an example there were no Hendersons born in TN who were
living in PA in 1850, nor in VA or W VA in 1850.
