Hello Kari: Thank you so much for the "Haney Reunion" e-mail. I always get excited when I find something new. Perhaps I can help you just a little about when Jeremiah, Jr and Mary Malvina/Melvina Henderson arrived in Missouri. Mary's brother was James Talbert Henderson and he was my gr-grandfather. From his newpaper obituary:, written by his granddaughter: "James Talbert Henderson was born in Bean Station, Grainger County, Tennessee on January 1, 1824. He died at his old home near Silver Lake, Perry County, Mo., at 1:30am, June 17, 1914, aged 90 years, 5 months and 16days. He came to Missouri in 1842 when he was 18 years of age, with his mother, three brothers and four sisters, driving through in a wagon. Four of them settled in Ste Genevieve County; himself, two brothers, Stokely and Benjamin Franklin, and one sister, Mary Melvina Haney; four of them going on to Lawrence County, his mother and three of his sisters, all of whom have preceeded him. Dear old Grandpa Henderson makes the last of the family to pass to the great beyond." From Grandma Henderson's Bible: "James Talbert Henderson born Knoxville, Tenn or Bean Station, Grainger Co, Tenn on Holstein River on January 1st 1824. Came to Mo at age 18 yrs moved in ----- mother 4 sisters and 3 bros came. Tates Springs." (There is or was a Tates Springs in Grainger Co., Tn.) Looks like ":Steven Haile Henderson." Unfortunally, no one that is alive today can remember anyone talking about the names of Mary's mother and father. The censuses read that Mother and Father both were born in N C. I find SO interesting, the fact that some of the Holstine/Holstein children are found in Lawrence County, Mo. That gives me hope that MAYBE we can find some trace of the Mother and the 3 sisters. It would appear that Mary died before 1824 and I am wondering if it states on her death certificate the names of her parents???? Jeremiah and Mary are not listed in the Haney Cemetery records that was recored in 1998. Their son Samuel and/or Amanda (Horn) are not listed there either. A. Ziegler and his wife Jessie (Jenkins) are listed there. Harriet Amanda Haney and husband, William H McDowell are buried in Home Cemetery, Perryville Mo. She b. 12-22-1874 d. 3-03-1966; He b. 11-17-1873 d. 2-22-1953 Elizabeth Maude (Haney) McFarland is buried in Haney Cemetery, Coffman, Ste Genevieve Co, Mo b. 1878 d. 1915. Do not know where husband Henry M is buried. I have probably given you more info than you needed, as you may already have some of this information. But I just get so excited when I see something that might put me on the trail to gr-gr-grandparents names. And of course, the Lawrence County, Mo info is a big surprise. My sister told me that she remembers our Dad, (he said,she said,ha) talking about his grandfather, James Talbert, telling them that they could see the Clinch Mountains from their house. Would love to go to Bean Station, Tates Springs, Grainger County, Tennessee just to see what they saw with their eyes. Thank you agin, for the wonderful info.
