need help please
- I just joined the group tonite and would appreciate some help or at
least a point in the right direction.
I am looking for the obit and cemetary for my birth father.
His info: James E. Mcdonald
B: may 5, 1912
D: july 5, 1992 in pompano Beach, Fl.
He had family in E. Boston, Mass. so not sure if buried there.
Thank you very much
- can someone get census reports? I am looking for Henderson in the 1830
Washington County VA on page 252 and the 1840 on page 219. I am looking
for a Catherine Henderson born about 1828 in this county. Sorry I don't
know her parents names. I was hoping that the 1840 census would give me
- Here's what I find on ancestry.com under Henderson, in Washington County, VA
in the 1830 census:
There is a William Henderson, who has the following listed in his household
(no names given):
- two males between five and ten
- one male between 40 and 50
- two females under five
- one female between five and fifteen
- one female between 50 and 60
That's from roll #200, page 252.
Here's what I find in the 1840 census:
There is a Thomas Henderson, who has the following listed in his household
(no names given):
- 2 males under 5
- 2 males between 10 and 15
- 1 male 20 to 30
- 1 male 50 to 60
- 2 females 10 to 15
- 1 female 40 to 50
That's from Roll: #579; Page: 219.
Seems as if your Catherine could be the daughter of either. Census forms
don't start listing all the names in a household until later. Sorry I can't
be of more help that way.
One Tree results show a Catherine Henderson born in VA on 18 Jun 1827 in
Virginia (no city or county listed.) Her parents are shown as (potentially)
Parsons Henderson, and a Nancy (no maiden name.) Parsons' parents are listed
as William Henderson and Mary Clark. Parson was born in Amherst county, VA.
There are a couple of other trees which might have info that matches. Do you
have a spouse name for Catherine? LMK if you do.
