David, I tried hunting down the Henson side, and found these listings, starting with 1920 and working backwards. You can look this info over and see what you think.

I didn't see a Nan or Nannie listed anywhere in this family, but found a Sarran b. 1885, could Sarran be Nan's first or middle name?

William (son) b. Jul 1890 age 9 NC NC NC no education info listed

I went back further into the census and found an Elias Jackson Henson living next door to a George and Nancy E. Henson. After tracking them back to 1850, it appears that Elias is George Pink's father. I have a marriage for Elias as well.

In 1850 I was lucky to find this census with a Jackson Henson, and his parents are Phillip and Sarah.

1850 Rutherford County, Floyd's Creek
377/377 HENSON, Phillip 64 M Farmer 1300 NC
              Sarah 60 or 66 F
              Elizabeth 38 F
              Susan 28 F
              Phillip 25 M Farmer 150
              Jackson 23 M 44
              Mary 21 F
              Jonia 18 M
              Caloway 13 M

By the way, the Byers are my line as well, my gr gr grandparents were, Dillard Pinkney "D. P." Byers and Pantha Jane Butler. I've never been able to figure out Dillard's parents, but I have an 1850 census showing him. But, I believe he is with his grandparents.

1850 Rutherford County, High Shoal District
1160/1190 BYARS, David 65 M Laborer SC
Mary 63 F
Wesley 35 M Laborer NC
Tempa 22 F
Noah 20 M
Elias 17 M
Narcissa 2 F
Dillard 4/12 M


Well, that's it for now. Have a great day!
