This page will deal with the Henderson Family records that I have been able to locate to help those researching the Upshur Co.,WV. Henderson Family.

As with all Upshur County Families, they came from another place at one time or another so I will try to list as many Henderson Family members, no matter from what state and counties I can find them

Upshur County, West Virginia:

David H. Jones               Thur. Feb. 26, 1998

I am descended from Lucy Henderson, born about 1841, who married Jacob C. Eckess of Rock Cave, Upshur County, West Virginia and was the mother of my grandmother Molly Florede Eckess Jones.
