A few weeks ago there was a query about the Cherokee Co, AL HENDERSON
families.  I hope this will help. I have no additiona information about these
families.  Just thought I would pass it along, as it does not apply to my Hugh
M. HENDERSON b 1814 Laurens, SC.

This information was photocopied from a manuscript file, on microfilm at the
Huntsville AL Library (I ; the notes of a genealogist, Mrs. L. M. Crouch, Jr.,
dated Nov. 1975. I am converting the dating to the method I use on PAF.

James Porter & Elizabeth (Booie) HENDERSON, one of the children listed below

(A note by L. M. Crouch said that he questioned that a child was omitted.
William Barry HENDERSON b 7 Sep 1787. She had access in 1975 to the bible of
W.B. H. and a transcript of his gravestone. She questions if he was a twin to
Violet Barry H.)

ot be William Barry and William Berry HENDERSON.
