Many ALABAMA HENDERSON families who are descended from Hugh Mahaffey HENDERSON
of Jefferson and Winston Co, AL, lived in North Alabama, including Lawrence
Co, AL. Hugh b 1814 Laurens Co, SC was the son of a James.

Do any of you have information on the James Henderson who was on page 21 of
the 1820 U. S. Census for Laurens Co, SC ?  He was age 26-30 and had 4 young
sons under 10 years of age.  He removed to Gwinett Co, GA and had Land Lot #84
on Wolf Creek, Suwanee Valley from Jan 31, 1823 until after 1830.

I believe him to be the father of my Hugh Mahaffey HENDERSON b 1814 in
Laurens, and the spouse of a daughter of Hugh Mahaffey.  Her name could be

Since he lived in the vicinity of the BURNS families and Raeburn/Rabun Creek,
near Hickory Tavern, I have some reason to believe that James could be the son
of Charles HENDERSON b Dec 1764 Goose Creek Dist, Loudoun Co, VA- d Dec 1849
in Chestnut Ridge, Laurens Co, SC; and his wife Edy MONTGOMERY b abt 1760-1770
and d 9 Sep 1842 Chestnut Ridge, Laurens, SC.

Charles and Edy had several sons , Charles Jr., James, Canada, Thomas, Nathan
and William.   Charles was said to be a son of Thomas and Frances HENDERSON of
VA and Laurens, SC.

Do you know anything more on these families ?
