Henson, John

Submitted by Mary Henson Little

About 1818-1820 John Henson and Jane Goodbread moved their family from Warren KY to Vanderburgh Co Indiana. Along with the William Chapman Famly.
These Hensons are listed in the 1820 and 1830 census of Vanderburgh Co Indiana

Johns son John F Henson Jr married Mary Polly Chapman in Vanderburgh in 1821.
Johns other son David F Henson married Elizabeth Harrison in Indiana, then Jane Kennedy and then a Cynthia.

My gg grand father William C Henson was born 1821 in Vanderburgh Indiana and married Isabelle Slover a Shaker.

A John C Henson was born in 1822 in Vanderburgh I believe he was Williams brother. I have never found proof these two boys parents.

But William's Military enlistment says he definitely was born in Vanderburgh IN 1821.

Another John C Henson from England married Rebecca Wooton and was a coffin maker in Vanderburgh he stayed there. I don't thing he belonged to the other Henson family.

John Sr and John Jr and David went to Wayne co IL about 1832
