NOTE: One story goes that Sebird, John W and Casper Henderson immigrated to America in the late 1700s. I would have to guess that is "Jasper", as that name is used in my line. Interestingly, he is transcribed as "Casper" in one census. Maybe OUR line has it wrong! He did not live long.
NOTE: Possibly Nathaniel Henderson of St Martains, Craven County, SC, died about 1776.
