Dowell Family Genealogy Forum
This is a real mystery. I can help with Henderson's ancestry. However, the only clue I have found is on the pension application which lists "H. L. Wheeler, Gdn." Could the "Gdn" mean guardian? There was a Hugh L. Wheeler, 32 merchant in the 1870 census. I can only assume this is the same person.
It would appear that Henderson's brother Richard possibly was married to Hester's sister and they also lived in the area.
