Era was the daughter of James M. and Louela Shook.

Era married Charles Estis Henson Dec 11, 1901 in Charleston, Tallahatchie County, Mississippi. They had nine children; seven sons and two daughters.

Era was 'Grandma Henson' to my sister and me. She was the mother of my stepfather, Lee Orie Henson. She was a gentle and sweet lady whom we all loved.

Grandma Henson taught me the correct way to hem a dress.
