OK, my cousin Martha has outdone herself in tracing the history of my dad's maternal side, the Hendersons. I am sitting here in awe of her research skills.
Below, my father's mother, Cordelia Henderson Thompson. She is the daughter of James Lewis Henderson and Martha Beall. The Hendersons were originally from Virginia.
I am related to George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Robert E. Lee, and Queen Elizabeth II. For someone like me who is a history buff, that's mind-blowing.
Below, Martha's email to me explaining it. [Martha's words are in blue. Links to other sites are underlined] The plus sign means married.
