The Henderson Family

of Augusta County, Virginia

A004

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I had Henderson ancestors also on my father’s side of the family. This family was located for many years in Augusta County, Virginia, near Staunton. They were members of the Tinkling Springs Presbyterian congregation. I have been in communication with Dr. Horace G. Loftin, Clan Genealogist of the Clan Henderson Society and am hopeful that I will in time discover the necessary documentary evidence to link William Henderson (number 3 below) with the Hendersons of Fordell, Scotland. The only question is whether William (number 2 below) was the father or uncle of William (number 3 below). The link is clearly within the same family group.
