1900 Census records indicate that James Henderson was born about 1862 in Scotland (village of Scougbrough,Shetland Islands?), immigrated to the USA after 1885 and is found in Thistle, UT as a Hotel Keeper. Wife was named Catherine and was born in Ireland.
This James Henderson may possibly be the younger brother of my grandmother, Jessie Henderson-Atkins (1855-1947 -m. Andrew Aitken) and her sister Ann Jane Henderson-Atkins (1864-1889 m. Henry or Harry Aitken.
Any information would be appreciated. I have some extensive Henderson family information from the Shetland Islands and some contacts there as well as info here in the USA.
There were two other brothers who immigrated to the US in the 1880's but remain unknown. They were John Henderson (b. 1850) and Robert Henderson (b.circa 1857. Oral family history said that one or more of the brothers settled in Utah.
One old photo of young women was taken in Springville, UT No other specific information.
