I am only assuming that Henderson is the son of Henry C. Barton [of Blount Co., AL] because Henry C. had a son that would have been the correct age of Henderson in the 1830 census. Henderson married in 1839 and in the poorly written marriage record it mentions mother, Martha Henderson, as giving permission for the marriage.

Henderson married Matilda Fortner of Blount Co. She died between 1854 and 1860. By 1860 Henderson lived in Poinsette Co. AR, then by 1870 he lived in Clark Co. AR and had remarried. I knew he disappeared from the AR census in 1880. I was contacted about a year ago by a descendant of one of Henderson's children by his 2nd wife who stated Henderson died in Indian Territory after 1880, which is now McCurtain Co. OK. My grandmother told me that one of my Barton relatives moved to TX, got in trouble for killing a man and had to flee TX. Indian Territory was where all of the outlaws went during this time so that could explain why he was there. As for Henry C. Barton, I would love to find info that could connect him to Henderson.
