John HENDERSON

John HENDERSON married Jean ALSTON
They had the following children:
  • <I have begun to speculate that Walter (born 23 Dec 1824 in Peebles, Scotland) had a brother Thomas HENDERSON born 9 Dec 1820 Peebles, Scotland. He was also son of a John Henderson) - What also makes this further interesting is that there was a HENDERSON, Thomas who had Lot 107, E. of Holland Landing (Simcoe Ontario), This is the same place that Walter's children are born.  Thomas died 17 May 1894 West Gwillimbury, York, Ontario. He married Sarah HUGHES 24 Oct 1842 West Gwillimbury, York, Ontario. Gwillimbury is also where most of the Belfrys are from (Walter married a Joanna Belfry) Note that in the same area as Thomas' Lot,  HUGHES, Samuel had Lot 105, E.>
  • Walter HENDERSON born 23 Dec 1824 in Peebles, Scotland, On September 10, 1904, he passed peacefully to his reward.
  • Jennett HENDERSON <sister?, cousin?, mother? - was a witness at his marriage>

Walter HENDERSON born 23 Dec 1824 in Peebles, Scotland, On September 10, 1904, he passed peacefully to his reward. His wife followed him April 26, 1910.. The 1901 census shows that he immigrated to Canada in 1834.

Mr. HENDERSON married Joanna Belfry, daughter of Mr. James Belfry, of Bradford, Ont. He "cleared" a farm in what was known as the "Queen's Bush," later living at Harriston, from which place he came to Portage la Prairie in May, 1877, accompanied by his daughter Jennie (who later because the wife of Mr. Thomas LOGAN) , and his eldest son, John C., now of Winnipeg.

In September of the same year the remainder of the family joined him with the exception of the second son, James B., who remained in Ontario till 1879.

In 1880, Mr. HENDERSON took up farming, about twenty miles south of Brandon, later retiring and returning to Portage. He was a life-long Methodist, a man of sterling qualities, respected by all who knew him. On September 10, 1904, he passed peacefully to his reward. His wife followed him April 26, 1910.
