Gertrude was the third of the four children of Uriah Henderson, Jr., Illinois, and Josephine Ward, Indian Territory. Josephine and, therefore, Gertrude, were part Choctaw and Gertrude held one of the original Choctaw Roll Numbers.
Gertrude was a member of the Lee Jackson Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy in Chickasha. Her scrapbook contains articles from the Chickasha Daily Express about meetings of this organization (November 10, 1929 and January 23, 1932). She also loved to garden, flowers in particular, and was an active member of the Garden Club in Chickasha.
Gertie, as she was fondly called, loved to play the piano and was an accomplished artist, working in oils, primarily.
Even though her tombstone indicates her date of death to be May 26, according to her death certificate, it is May 25.
