Thought I would share this information/source of with you on Thomas HENDERSON.

"Thomas Henderson of Onslow Co., NC presents a puzzle. He appears in county court records under that name by 1779, when he acquires property and is actively present until his death some before 1818, He has children Solomon, Alexander, Thomas, and Re Rebeckah, fide court records.
Complications begin in Onslow Deed Books, 0 (1818-19), where suits are recorded by the "legitimate children" of Jonas Solomon the elder of NJ, deceased. The suit states that "Jonas Solomon, otherwise called Thomas Henderson formerly of Monmouth Co., NJ and afterwards of Onslow Co., NC having died intestate leaving legitimate children, namely
(those suing, all of NJ)..." the case is apparently settled by Thomas Henderson's Onslow children Solomon, Alexander, Thomas, and Rebeckah or descendants, paying off those claimants with substantial sum of cash. So is Thomas Henderson of Onslow also Jonas Solomon of NJ? Or was perhaps a NJ wife of Thomas a Solomon? or what? As of now, it looks like the former case, where we shall leave it pending further clarification!(H. L.)"
Somewhere I have it that Hosea lived to be 81 years of age.
