RE: jesse henson jr
Nothing that I have been able to document yet. Every family member you meet including my wifes mother, and her mother say we descend from Native Americans. I even traced a Jesse Henson Jr., who is documented who other family members have pointed to proof. But, it was the wrong Jesse Henson Jr., Now I do believe we do descend from Native Americans. My wife and her mother have the high cheek bones, and to many family members retell the stories of their grandparents who insist we do. Unfortunatly, I do not think whom ever was ever recorded it. I have been told by my wife's mother that our Jesse Henson Jr. was at least part Native American. I have also been told stories of how he worked to hide that for fear of reprisals, which would explain him never submitting paperwork. Perhaps one day evidence will surface.

I have a family site I have been working on for 13 years now that is filled with both my wife's and my lines including Hensons. If you would like an invitation just send me your e-mail address, and I will get you out an invitation. The site is password and username protected.

I think at last count I had somewhere over 12,000 photographs uploaded there now with lots of history. Not all Henson of course, but certainly a lot of Hensons, their spouces, and desendents. You and my wife are cousins.

RE: Martha Ann (harrison) Henson
Well, I don't know this family, I just photograph cemeteries, but on, I found a Martha Harrison living with a Thomas Harrison, born in Tennessee, and Sarah Harrison, born in South Caroline. It was on the 1870 census for McLennan, Texas.

Thomas, born 1837, Tennessee age 33
Sarah, born 1840, South Caroline age 30
Martha Harrison age 11, born Arkansas, abt 1859
Thomas Harrison age 8, born Arkansas
Sarah Harison age 6, born Arkansas
Daniel Harrison age 3, born Texas

I don't know if this is the same family. Maybe you know. Sorry, I am not more help. Frances

RE: Asa/Mary Napier
Yes, I have her in my wife's family tree at However, I have not ran out Mary's line. There is information in Washington Co and Ancestry for the Henson family. If you go to, look for the Rev Ollie Tackett family tree; or, you may do a search for Mary Ruth Henson. - dennis
