Hi: Found the following in my files: It was taken from the Family Puzzl er
#1447, 7/13/1996, p 5-7. Thought you might be interested in.
Dr. H. HENSON REMEMBERS WHEN THE STARS FELL AND OTHER EVENTS OF EARLY DAYS :
"I was born in Rabun County, Ga May 21, 1823, which would make me betwe en 85
and 86 years old. My father moved to Gilmore [Gilmer] County, Ga. wh ere we
lived until the spring of 1834"
"On the night of Nov 13, 1833, I saw the comets fall from the heavens by h
undreds of thousands. The whole canopy of heaven was in a general commoti on
from midnight until daylight. I was not excited at the strange movemen ts of
the stars, as I supposed they did that every morning."

"Some movers, camped near our house, awoke and called out to my father th at
the world was coming to an end. I then got a little excited over it, a nd
stated to my father that if that was anything to get excited over, I co uld
have notified them two or three hours before. That was about 4:30 o'cl ock. I
was 10 years old at the time of the falling of the stars. "

"In the spring of 1834 my father emigrated to Arkansas territory and after
wads to [the] Cherokee Nation, where we remained one year. Later we liv ed in
Benton County, Ark. where we ground all our meal, our family, sev en in
number, used on a steel mill ..."
"My father and family emigrated from Arkansas to Texas in 1841, stopping o ne
year in Fannin County, and then moving to Rusk County, Tex. where we li ved 7
years ..."

I have lived under the administration of 22 presidents of the United Stat es
and two presidents of the republic of Texas, vis. Sam Houston and Ans on
Jones. The first vote I ever cast was for Anson Jones. The second one w as the
annexation of the republic of Texas to the United States in 1845 a nd I have
never regretted casting that vote yet ... " Have you got any ide as as to who
this might be? Scarlette

Sir
I have just received a communication dated Nov.1835 from the(……………….) encl
osing a copy of a communication from yourself to that department in relati on
to James B. Henson. His wife was represented to me to be of Cherokee bl ood
but resided for many years among the whites and returned with Hens on a white
man into the Cherokee Country after the extension of the la ws of Georgia.
After he came into the county he was a candidate for the Le gislature and was
defeated on the score of his having an Indian blooded wo man for a wife. This
fact I was well satisfied of from my own knowledge b ut having doubts of his
being really of Indian blood. I inquired of sever al persons of credibility
who gave statement which removed my doubts and t he family was consequently
enrolled under the provision of the Treaty of M ay 6, 1828 as members of the
Tribe. I had intended to have answered you fu lly by my communication of the
17 April last but suppose the name of Jam es B. Henson was inadvertently
overlooked.

Hello David,
This is my line as follows: Joseph Henson Sr and Rebecca Scruggs
Joseph Henson Jr and Nancy Elizabeth Clark
Charles Henson and Melissa Swim/Swaim
John C. Henson and Eliza Catharine Spencer
William Steve Henson and Bessie May Melton, my parents, then me, Ellen

This Joseph on census of 1790 and 1800 I believe is my Joseph and Rebecca.
Their first child was born in 1794 William Henson. In census of 1800 they had
two daughters, Elizabeth and Judah. By 1800 they left Pendleton dist SC and
moved to NC then to Habersham Co GA then Union Co. Some still live there.

I could not account for all the children of the William in these censuses in
any of the info I've seen online or with chatting with descendants if he is
the William H. I have seen where Dr. Henry Henson who descends from this line
states in documents that his cousins were a Dick, Terrell and Wash Henson.
This Dick Henson is son of Joseph and Rebecca who's name was William and he
went by name of Richard and mostly Dick. He married a part Cherokee woman,
Margaret Blair. He filed many a case to try and regain the reservation land
which was taken from him and wife. Ellen at redpep@@msn.com

Hi David, The Lloyd Henson I was referring to is Lloyd Henson born Dec 27,
1789 NC some say SC, died in Haywood Co NC, married Sally Meace/Meece May 27,
1818 in Haywood Co NC. They had a daughter Cynthia Henson who married Leonard
Cardin/Carden and they had a son named Stonewall Jackson Cardin who's
application states he is grandson of Lloyd Henson and this Lloyd that married
Sallie Meace is brother to Wm "Richard" Henson son of Joseph and Rebecca
Scruggs Henson. He states in his application that he knows daughter of other
sister Audrey and daughter of Richard Henson Irena Warlick, he says Irena's
father "Dickie" Henson is Lloyd's brother. Trying to prove or disproof that.
Most researchers have this Lloyd as son of Daniel. It amazing me that there
are so many Henson researchers that no one has my 4th g.gf Joseph Sr among
their lines. We know he was born in VA went to NC then SC then Habersham/Union
co GA and is buried Henson cem near Owltown. Have a good evening. Ellen at

Legend says that his seven sons married Holder sisters.
See "The Cousins" by Faye C. Pool
David S. Payne, The meaning of "HOLDER" women is not clearly understood. C
ould they have been sisters; or, did the term "HOLDER woman," imply, perha ps,
that they were Indians. Some researchers believe the term "Holder Wome n" was
generally used to indicate "Indian Women".
