Hendersons on 1870 census
Posted by: Cindy McLaughlin (ID *****6991) Date: August 21, 2002 at 22:25:03

I am looking for my great grandmother's Henderson family. Father John died in 1868, probably in Cherokee Co. Daughter Mary Elizabeth Henderson married William L. Easter in Dec 1865. In Feb 1871, they had son Van Buren Easter in Johnson Co TX. I am trying to locate Mary Elizabeth's mother and siblings on the 1870 census. One theory in the family is that they left TX and went back to AL briefly. In 1880 they are in Tarrant Co, next door to Johnson Co, and were possibly there by 1878 when daughter Sarah Jane married W.H. Rainwaters. Since no 1870 Tarrant Co census exists, I thought I would try Johnson.
Does anyone out there have a copy of the 1870 census for Johnson Co? Some names that might be included are:
Arabella wf age 52 mother/widow
James W. wm age 32 son/head of household
Van Buren wm age 30 son/head of household
Wiley wm age 21-23 son
Sarah J. age 21-23 daughter
Edward age 11 son
There were other children as well.
I would appreciate anyone's assistance, and will be happy to reciprocate if possible. Thanks
