Notes

  • We first find William Henderson in Missouri in the 1880 census.  Butthis census tells us he was born in Tennessee.  He later moved backthere.

    By 1910, William has married Edith Melvine Baker.  They are enumeratedwith two children.

    From the 1920 census in Jefferson County, Tennessee, we learn moreabout the family of William Edith.  First off, her proper name isconfirmed as Edith, which we would expect from the name Edie used inthe 1910 census and a family genealogy.

    I notice here that both parents of William are said to have been bornin Tennessee.  In 1880, we are told that his mother was born inVirginia.  I found it odd and suspicious that every single person andboth parents of everyone on this page of the census for JeffersonCounty, Tennessee, was reported as born in Tennessee.

    In this census, next door to William and Edith are William's singlebrother and their mother Mary F Palmer Strange, now a widow.  Threedoors down on the other side are the Phillips family, Elmer and Marthaand their children.  Their daughter Daisy (Daisy Evelyn) married Carl. This was probably before the end of 1920.  I do not have the exactdate from any source.

    James M matches the child listed as Murphy in the 1920 census inJefferson County.  Now we know his name is James Murphy.  Note thatJames is reported as married, and not as a widower, but his wife isnot in the household.  I don't know what this means.

    Additional children are named in some genealogies.
