Herndon Family Genealogy Forum
According to THE HERNDONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION [Being THE HERNDON FAMILY OF VIRGINIA Vol. Two] by John Goodwin Herndon page 195 William Henry Herndon had 4 sons[and 4 daughters]--James Nathaniel Herndon who had 2 sons and 1 daughter; Beverly Powell Herndon shown as unmarried; Leigh W. Herndon who had 3 sons and 3 daughters; and William Miles Herndon who died the same day his father did at age 21. This book does not give the names of this younger generation.
My copy of WHH's biography of Lincoln talks a lot about Herndon and his relation to Lincoln and the biography but doesn't seem to have anything about WHH's wives and children. You might try Rev. John Fort Newton's book LINCOLN AND HERNDON and Dr David Donald's LINCOLN'S HERNDON. I have not seen either of these books.
