Hensons in early Franklin County TN

Wondering if anyone know who this Reuben Henson is and where he came from. The name Reuben persisted in my Henson line for at least three more generations. Think he may be father of Samuel Henson who died in Stoddard County MO in 1869.

1820 census records show the following:
Reuben Henson 210010-20010
1830 Census records show the following:
Reuben Henson 1211001 (40-50 yrs) - 011001
Joseph Henson 000101 (30-40 yrs) - 00001
Samuel Henson 12001 (20-30 yrs) - 10001

Reuben Henson had a duty assignment to be a road overseer near the Alabama State line between 1832-1834. Also a deed of trust between Reuben Henson and Andrew Woods for the benefit of John M Kavanaugh. Found in a book at the DAR library. Also found Franklin County TN Land Records mention of Reuben owning property: No 1355 $.50 50 acres
Reuben Henson enters fifty acres of land lying in Franklin County in the state of Tennessee on the water of Beanes Creek beginning at a white oak the south east corner of his 200 acre tract on which he now lives running east thence north thence west and thence south for complement, the 4th day of September 1828.

Anyone with information about this Henson line would be greatly appreciated. This is my brick wall at the moment.
