Notes about Children:
9 and 10 - confusion on the birth-dates:
9) Mildred Nettie Henderson - birth-register has 4 Jan 1913, but she is in the 1910 census (Nettie M.) as being 8-months old. There is a birth-register page for an unnamed female, born 29 Aug 1909 in Grafton, dau. of John Henderson. That birth-date would equal the 8-months age on census-day (April 1, 1910) for the 1910 census. [ birth-register page 77, 31st record ]
10) Gail Henderson - death-certificate has 4 Jan 1913 as her birth-date, and she is in the 1920 as 6-years old (census-day for the 1920 census is January 1, 1920). So the 4 Jan 1913 birth-date probably belongs to Gail.
