Source for death is from the Sparks Quarterly, page 5353, and from Counties of Morgan, Monroe & Brown IN, Van Buren Twp by F A Battey & Co, 1884:

ROBERT HENDERSON, farmer and stock-raiser, is a native of Jackson County, Ind., born August 28, 1827, and is the eldest of ten children of Robert and Parmelia (Newkirk) Henderson, the former a native of Virginia, the latter of Indiana. The father of our subject was born 1795, remained in Virginia until he was fourteen years of age, moved thence to Kentucky, thence to Lawrence County,
Ind., in 1815, and to this county in 1829. Our subject grew to manhood on a farm, having been brought here when an infant, and remained with his parents until he was twenty-three years of age. December 13, 1850, he married Mary A. Davis, from which union sprang eleven children, of whom are living - Emeline, James M., John C.B., Parmelia, Robert M., Benjamin, Jasper and Freeman. Mr. Henderson has a good farm of 200 acres, on which he lives, also one of 200 acres in Jackson County, which farm is well improved. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity and a Democrat; was elected County Commissioner in 1870, re-elected in 1872, and is now a candidate for re-election. Mr. Henderson is an excellent citizen, and he and wife are members of the Baptist Church.
