Re: Hendersons of New Kent VA, Hanover VA, Granville NC

In Reply to: Hendersons of New Kent VA, Hanover VA, Granville NC by Clayton Heathcock of 11757

I've been searching for many years to find any evidence of the parents of Samuel Henderson, born abt. 1777 in S.C. and probably died abt. 1867 in Tallapoosa Co., AL.
In the 1860 census of Tallapoosa Co., AL. he, Samuel Henderson, age 83, born S.C., was residing in the household of his son, Archibald Henderson, born 1810 in GA.
The 1830 census of Henry Co., GA. has an enumeration for Samule Henderson, age 50-59, with (1) male, age 20-29 and (2) males age 15-19. also females (1) age 40-49 and (2) age 20-29 and (1) age 15-19 and (1) 5-9.

There is also a Henry County, Georgia tax record of 1837 in Captain Johnson's Militia District for Samuel Henderson, Junior, apparently having no property.
Makes me think he is a son of Samuel Henderson, Sr. (c.1777-c.1867) that sold 202-1/2 acres of land lying in the 6th District of Henry Co., GA. on 10 Nov. 1836 to my ggg grandfather, Hiram Sims, Sr.

I've been unable to find Samuel Henderson in the 1840 or 1850 censuses. However, a transcription of the original records for Rocky Mount Primitive Baptist Church 1833-1868 Tallapoosa Co., AL. Transcribed by Glenda Brack does have names and dates of interest.
Sept 2, 1842; Samuel Henderson, by letter
Sept. 2, 1843; Oney Henderson, by letter
Feb. 1, 1845; Open a door for the reception of members. Received Brother Samuel Henderson and Sister Oney Henderson, his wife, by letter.
Sept. 13, 1849; Omey Henderson Excommunicated
Dec. 3, 1853; Samuel Henderson, excommunicated
Oct 4, 1856; Sister Martha Yarber (sic Martha Yarborough?), now Henderson, call for a letter of dismission which was granted.
