1930 census index shows Hershall O. Hanson, b. GA, 1896, Mary M, b. 1900, Paul L, b. 1921, and James A, b. 1925. - Submitted 18 Aug 1998 by Tamara Storck
I am looking for any information about James HENSON. I don't know when he was born but he married a woman named Degary SAMS(b.1855). He died in Clayton, Rabun Co., GA abt. 1909. They had 7 children: Dutch, George, Glenn and Gould (twins), Paul, Willie Effie (my ggrandmother), and Herschel. I believe he was a dentist. The name was changed to HANSON sometime after James died. I would appreciate any information at all about him, his ancestors or descendants.

Clayton Baptist Church Cemetery: Clayton, Rabun Co., GA;

Glen V. Henson; 01 Sep 1892-01 Aug 1912;
"They who knew him best will bless his name."

Dr. J. L. Hanson; 03 Oct 1851-20 Jun 1900;
"Thy memory shall ever be a guiding star to heaven."

Dr. A. B. Sams; 05 Jan 1819-01 Feb 1893;
"Be ye also ready, for in such an hour as ye think not the
Son of Man cometh"; Masonic Emblem; Foot stone, "A.B.S."

Little Burton York; 21 Mar 1898-05 Apr 1904;
"Sheltered and safe from sorrow on easter lilly."

Lucy Sams; 12 Jul 1876-01 May 1922; "Wife of J. M. York";
"She was a kind and affectionate wife,
a fond mother and a friend to all."

John Malvin York; 25 Aug 1863-26 Jul 1936;
"Life's work done, he rests in peace."

This is probably the Sams family in 1880: note that 'Paran' may be 'Degary' or perhaps it is a nickname for one of the other children:

Maybe ask on recordlookups forum for census records for 1900/1910/1920/1930?
