Hi Mary,
I have Henderson's Fortune's and Fitzhenry's in my family tree. And I'm curious about your Warren Henderson. I have no Warren Henderson but I'm wondering if he's connected? Your Fortune's are in North Carolina? Are they related to the Fortune family having Major William Fortune of Canada ? William's father was from Newry County Down Ireland possibly married to an Ann? The Fortune's resided in the Carolina areas for many many years. The Henderson's, Fortune's and Fitzhenry's married frequenttly and had many ties together.

dont think so, all my family was from north carolina, up in the asheville area, what i was looking for, is my grandfather was a henderson and married a whitaker, they have several children and she died at a early age, and he let most of the smaller kids be adopted out, my uncle warren was adopted by his aunt and uncle, i remember him when i was little, but i was trying to find out when he died. nothin shows up , on death index, dont know if he was legally adopted or what. thanks so much

Mary Jo,
My Fortune's came from Va to Rutherford County, NC, which was the area around Forest City, NC.

I just sent because of the Henderson and Fortune connection in Va before they came to NC.

Hi Linda,
I had to go back thru the queries to see what I asked. But I see I had just ansWered another one.
So glad to hear from another cuz.
I am just back on computer after being off for over a month due to health. So give me a few days to see if I have anything on the Annie C Payne's who married a Fortune.
I don't remember seeing any but I don't remember so good any more.
I am looking for parents of my greatgrandmother Serena Catherine Williams who married my greatgrandfather
D B Doc Fortune who married her either in NC or Texas after he had broke out of jail in Rutherford County NC and fled to Texas. I have the story about this if you want to know more.. I have been sent info that her parents were from Tn but no luck in finding them yet in Tn or if they went to Tx and took their kids or if just Serena Catherine ( Cate) went to Tx with D B Doc Fortune when he escaped jail in NC.
If you want send email to my email addy.
