Please help me find any information on the above individual. He married Margaret Adaline Rudisill 1/1/1850. They were from Mecklenburg, Lincoln and Gaston counties, of N.C. He was also known to have lived in York, S.C. in 1860. I would like to know his mother and father and any ancestors prior to them. Also Robert's and Margaret's place of burial.

Any help locating information on the above would be appreciated.

I have a similar Henderson story. James M. Henderson b. approx 1830 in N. He was the Editor of the Concord Gazette in Cabarrus Co NC at the time of his marriage in 1854 to Celena V. Caston. They were married in York Co, SC. She apparently was from Lancaster Co, SC. Anything/anyone sound familiar?

Your names do not connect with our family although the locations are similar/same along the NC/SC line. There is another large Henderson family in this area. Contact the Olde Mecklenburg Genealogy Society
http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ncomgs/ to see their member's surnames search list, publications archives etc. I once was in contact with Tina, an OMGS member from this Henderson family but lost the contact info.
I assume you have explored the York (SC) sites http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~scyork/Society AND

Hey! It's your cousin Linda! I have some info for you. Robert Franklin Henderson DOES list himself in 1880 as J.M. Henderson. This is why no one could find him in the 1880 census. I DO believe that these are the initials of his father and that he's using them for some reason. Just thought I'd touch base. Children and dates are the same and he lists himself as being born in SC. Same man, different name.

FOUND!

Robert Franklin Henderson was the son of James M. Henderson and Mary Hays of Yorkville, SC. Their children were: Mary C. Henderson Adams (married Ebenezer Wilson Adams), Archibald Henderson (married Hannah Jane Faries), Martha "Patsy" Henderson (married William Millen), John N. Henderson (married Becky Kincaid), Robert Franklin Henderson (married Margaret A. Rudisill), and William A. Henderson (married Mary Mendenhall). All can be found in Gaston Co., NC in the census except for Archibald who moves first to Arkansas and then with his sons, Jonathan L. Henderson and Harry/Harvey Henderson, to Ellis and Erath counties in Texas.

I found this information last week in the estate papers of Abi Henderson, daughter of William A. Henderson. Abi died in 1911 and left no heirs so her estate reps began a search for descendants and through detailed information, listed all of her father's siblings and their descendants. Robert Franklin was listed along with his children and grandchildren (I am descended through his son, John Worth Henderson).

Abi and her family, along with the Adams's (and Hawkins - a daughter) are buried in Olney Cemetery in Gaston Co., NC. Martha "Patsy" Henderson Millen's son, John, is buried in Cherryville. The other Millen children changed their last names to "Milling".

I hope this helps all who have been searching for years for Robert Franklin Henderson's siblings and/or parents.

I tried to add these pages to my family tree. It only let me get partial pages and of course no mention of Archibald and Hannah Jane Henderson. Would it be possible to email me these pages? Thank You, Candi
