This message is for SHEILA. I am interested in learning about my relationship to Matthew Henson. I know that my grandfather had at least one sister and we called her aunt Pearl. As far as I know she made her home in Baltimore, Md. I am 53 yrs-old and my memory of her dates back to the 50s. After that time I never heard of her again also I think my grandfather died sometime in the mid 50s. I believe Reese Funeral Home ,in Annapolis, handled the arrangments. I was a young child at the time so, my memory is a little cloudy. Please, if you have any information I am truly interested. I await your reply.

We need to exchange more information because I had a cousin named Pearl who just in the last 2 years passed away. I am also 53 years old however I remember my family get together
which included relatives from Maryland. We just had a huge family reunion in Maryland in July and that reunion was attended by Matthew Henson's direct decendants from Greenland.Matthew Henson had 1 son who had 5 sons and one of his grandson's family came to the reunion. We had someone from Annapolis to attend Stanley Henson do you know him? I have some pictures to share if you give me your e-mail address I will send them.May we need to talk my number is 301-386-2532.

Hi,
I am trying to find my late maternal grandmother's side of the family. Her name was Mary E.(Eugene/ie) Hensen who was born in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 25, abt. 1912, and died aboout 1944 of breast cancer. She married my grandfather Noah Lee Best at the age of 13 yrs. He was 16. Both of her parents were alive at that time. Their children were Walter Raymond, Albert, Lester, Noah Lee, Jr., Harold Vincent,George Washington, Carrie Dolores, Louise Francis, Ellen May, Norman Edward, Earl Lee, Charles Lindsey,Joseph Lee Best. Ellen is my mother.
George, Carrie, Louise, and Joesph are still living. We hav a lot of relatives in the Best decendants line. Mary had siblings named: Georgia May, Ellen, Carrie, Dan, and Charlie that we know of. Ellen Hensen was a tall woman who wore a brace on her leg (polio?) The family was of German/Danish/Dutch orgins. I have a few photos of Mary, and that's all that are known. Mary & Noah lived in D.C. at the time of their marriage. Any information would be welcolmed. I can not seem to get any more information on this side of the family so far. It would mean alot to my mother and her remaining siblings if I could find anything.Thanks!

Stanley Henson is my cousin - David Henson is also his granfather from his first marriage! I am trying to find the connection with the Annapolis Henson "clan" and Matthew Henson! Please email me if you are related! vernell3@yahoo.com.. I would love to see any pictures that you may have from the past reunions. I heard that there is another reunion coming up in July 2002 in North Carolina!
