In Reply to: looking for infor on a prothonotary of Greene Co/Waynesburg by lois osborn of 1583

The 1900 US Federal Census enumeration for Jackson Twp, Greene Co, found Morgan Henderson, b. Feb. 1893, as son in the household of George and Mary Henderson.

National Archives microfilm Group T623, roll 1413, Page 4A, Enumeration District 90.

George and Mary were also enumerated there for 1910, but I did not find George indexed for 1920. He may have died between 1910 and 1920. You may find a date of death by searching for cemetery readings in Jackson Twp., or for an obituary. Once you find a date of death you can write the Penna. Dept. of Health in Newcastle for a copy of his death certificate, if you are a descendant.

For 1930, mother Mary A. Henderson, age 65, was enumerated in the household of Morgan Henderson, Prothonotary, in Waynesburg Boro along with a brother and sister.

1930 enumeration for Waynesburg, Greene Co, Pennsylvania; National Archives Microfilm Group T626, Roll 2044, Page 5B, Enumeration District 29, Image 416.0.

So if you look for a cemetery reading or obituary for Mary after Jan. 1930 and find a death date for her, you can write for her death certificate as above.

You can view the microfilms for details on, either by subscribing, taking advantage of a trial period, or possibly at your local library if it subscribes for patrons. By these means you can also search for earlier enumerations for this family. Or you can ask your library to borrow the microfilm by inter-library loan, for a few dollars per microfilm roll.

For further genealogical information you can go to the Greene Co. Courthouse in Waynesburg and consult land and estate records, and access to tax assessment rolls may be more easily consuslted at the County Library.

Good hunting!
