This is the same William Henson in Green Co Ar in 1860. As you can see there is a Francis and Margaret on both censuses and the ages match. It also seems he had a first marriage with Elizabeth. Since the 1860 census only has G. M. Henson, by deduction it can't be George too old, but Green is the right age. This census taken in Dec of 1850. That means his birthday was before Dec. The 1860 Census was taken in July and he is listed as 20. That means his birthday is between 6 July and Dec 5. I am now pretty sure this is our line. Unfortunately Tenn marriages only go to 1825 and there is a gap between 1826 and 1850 and pick up again 1851 to 1900. Also found in Hardman Co. As you can see they are all within a stones throw of each other and I suspect John Henson is William Henson's father etc. Thomas and John may be William's brothers. Elizabeth may be a second marriage.

1586/1587 HENSON       John           60   M Farmer
  67   F
1587/1588 HENSON       Thomas     23   M     Farmer
    22   F
1590/1591 HENSON       John           26   M    
Farmer         500
      26   F
      6/12 F
                                    Tenn I did a A search for military records came up with:

Henson Green   M.
Co. D   25 Arkansas Infantry.   in as a Private discharged a Private

Also found a William Henson on the Civil war index, but I don't know if
this is ours. There were William Hensons who fought in Tenn and Missouri.

Henson William Co D   21 Arkansas Infantry.   Private Private

Henson William Co H   30 Arkansas Infantry.   Private Private

I SURE hope this is him!! Then I can go on with my Henson research. I value your input and help.
