Capt. William Michael HENDERSON Jr. was the son of William Michael HENDERSON Sr. & Mary Ann YOUNG. On 18 October 1865 in Marion County, he married Cynthia Ann Gray BROWN (1844-1921). He represented Screven County in the Georgia House of Representatives during 1878-1879.

Summary of his service record: 2nd Lieutenant William Michael HENDERSON of Company E, 5th Georgia Cavalry, Bulloch Troop - He entered the Confederate Army, Co. E, Fifth Georgia Cavalry, which was made up of Bulloch, Screven and Emanuel men. He had intended enlisting with the Screven troop, but living just across the river from Bulloch, and having many schoolmates and close friends across the river, he went with them. He was eighteen years of age when he entered the service February 24, 1862, and served his beloved cause until May 2, 1865, being in active service three years and three months. His regiment did coast duty from Savannah to Jacksonville, Fla., until the last year of the war: they joined the western army in April, 1864.
