HENDERSON in 1850 census
Posted by: Brenda Janes (ID *****7889) Date: March 10, 2009 at 20:46:47

I have discovered what just might break through the brick wall I've been beating my head against for many years.
In the 1850 census for Covington this family is listed:
John 48
Hariet 42
Sophia 21
Hariet 13
Martha 11
Julian 9
Charity 7
Joshua 5
Moses 3

My gggrandfather, Joshua Henderson and his brother, Moses
are in Dereham Twp. in Oxford County, Canada in 1860.
This is the closest I have come to finding a birthplace for Joshua. On one of his daughter's marriage records his birthplace is listed as PA, where every other record I have just lists USA.
I don't know IF this is my Joshua, I would really appreciate it if anyone out there researching Henderson's could help me figure out if this is or isn't my Henderson family.
Moses doesn't appear in any other area census records, nor have I find a death record for him. Perhaps he returned to the USA.
Finger's crossed in Canada,
Brenda Janes
