Looking for Daniel's parents.(note two wives)
Daniel J Henderson B 1800 in SC Married Sarah Valentine (b. abt 1800)Son William born abt 1820 in Alabama(spouse Sarah A. Thornton) and daughter Caroline b. 1821 In Alabama
Daniel married Sarah Catherine Thornton b. 1808 in SC, First child Alexander B 1834 in Alabama. Second child Richard born 1836 in Alabama.
Third child Harriet Henderson B 15 Oct 1837 in MS.
Fourth child Nathan born 1839 in MS
Fifth child (my ancestor) Benjamin F Henderson b. 3 Nov 1842 in MS. He married Lydia Nichols.
I believe the Thornton family to have been Quakers. Henderson Men married Thornton girls for several generations.
My grandmother Henderson's grandmother was a Thornton, never wore lipstick or fancy cloths. She went with my mother and her daughters to a movie on a Sunday and when leaving was brushed by a bus. She said that was God's way to letting her know that movies on Sunday was bad.
