    • BIOGRAPHY OF AMELIA HENDERSON by Jeanne Oldham Heuman

      Amelia Henderson , b. 1845, Ohio, was the daughter and third child of at least four children of John A. Henderson (b. Ohio 1817) and Agness Walker. (b. Pennsylvania). John A. Henderson was the son of Andrew Henderson and Susanna Baird.

      When she was 6 years old [1851], Amelia's family moved west from Guernsey Co, in eastern Ohio, where she was born, to Columbus, Franklin County, in central Ohio.

      Andrew Henderson, (b. 1791, Pennsylvania, d. 27 Feb. 1892?) was in the War of 1812, from Guernsey County, Ohio, a member of Capt. Beatty's company. Andrew m.1. Susanna Baird, 25 Aug. 1814, Guernsey County, Ohio and m. 2. Barbara W. 2 Feb. 1824, Guernsey County, Ohio. She was b. 1787, Pennsylvania. They are listed in the 1850 Federal census of Ohio as:

      Andrew Henderson, age 59, b. Pennsylvania,
      "Barbary" Henderson, age 63, b. Pennsylvania.

      Andrew moved to Columbus, Franklin Co. Ohio, in 1851. Andrew Henderson's parents were John Henderson and Maria Margaret Baird. Andrew came to Ohio from Pennsylvania with his parents in 18nd as a state in 1803).

      There are land purchases listed:

      1806--by William Henderson, Sr, and Thomas Henderson.in Oxford Twp., Guernsey Co, Ohio by "early settlers"

      1811--Thomas Henderson./wife Jane sold to John Henderson land in the original patent granted by the US to Thomas Henderson on Dec. 10, 1808.

      1814--John Henderson/wife Elizabeth sold to William Henderson/wife Jane. There were four land transactions in Guernsey County, Ohio, in Feb. 1822 between Andrew Henderson, John Henderson, Sr., John Henderson, Jr., The facts have not been connected to our ancestry but will be investigated more thoroughly.

      According to the International Genealogical Index, John Henderson was born in Pennsylvania. He married Margaret Baird and they moved to Ohio in 1804. One of their children was Andrew Henderson. There is a land purchase by John Henderson 02/Twp. 03/Section 16, also 17 June 1826 04/02/30. [Early Ohio Settlers, Purchasers of Land in East and East Central Ohio, 1800-1840 by Ellen Thomas Berry and David A. Berry, Gen. Pub. Co.., Inc., 1989].

      In the 1850 Federal Census of Guernsey Co, Oxford Twp p. 253, there is a John Henderson 37, wife Margaret 33, children Nancy 9, Martha 8, Wm 7, James 5, Sarah 3, George 6 mo.---irrelevant?

      John Henderson, b. 1747 in Ireland, came with his parents to Pennsylvania from Ireland in 1758. He married Martha Long and they migrated to Guernsey County, Ohio after their children were married. He was the son of William Henderson and Martha Lond had a son John Henderson, b. 1778 but it is not proved whether he is the son of William Henderson who came from Ireland.

      From Stories of Guernsey Co. Ohio, we find: "The family had its beginning in Scotland, but went over to Ireland with many others at the time of the political disturbance in the former country. In 1758 William Henderson came with his family and settled in what is now Juniata county, Pennsylvania. They were truly Scotch-Irish, a mixture of blood of which many of our best American citizens have liked to boast of possessing. The children of William and Agnes Henderson were James, John, Agnes and Isabella."

      Amelia C. Henderson is first found listed in the 1850 Federal Census of Jefferson Township, Guernsey Co, Ohio [#736, p. 435]., as follows:

      John A. Henderson 33 b. Ohio [b. 1817]
