Hello Lisa, Our ancestry chart indicates that my great grandmother, Alice Henderson was born in 1860 in Prince Edward County Virginia and the family later moved to Walton,Charlotte County, VA. Family lore suggest that someone in the McGhee family owned slaves that could be associated with a line of Henderson’s that preceded Alice’s birth. In your research, have you seen any indication that this is some connection that we should pursue.
Thank you, Dr. Stephen C. Jones
Hello, Stephen. I’m a bit confused. I have a 97 year-old cousin named Alice Henderson Mabin, who was born in Wilson NC, but am not familiar with an Alice Henderson from P.E. County.
