This link shows Abe's family in 1850:

If correct, this makes him the son of William & Elizabeth Henderson, but I know nothing further of them. You will note that it shows Abe born in Mississippi, although this could be an error. I did not find any record of him serving in the main military unit from the Spearsville area, Company I, 31st Louisiana Infantry. However, there are virtually no records for that unit between July 1863 and June 1865, and many men enlisted during this interval and served without leaving any records of their service.

Do you know much about his wife, Mary Virginia Arrington? I don't know for certain, but I think she was the daughter of Dr. John Arrington who lived in the Spearsville area of Union Parish in the 1850s, but moved into southern Union County Arkansas by 1860. I can check if you are interested.
