Henson Cemetery

Henson Cemetery 100% indexed September 1997. Indexed by Helen Staten Arnold and Nick Denley.

Henson Cemetery is about 2.5 miles E. of Hwy.35 on the Cascilla Road
This was a family cemetery.

This Cemetery updated, corrected and proofed February 1999.

The land was given for the cemetery by James Anthony Shannon. He owned several hundred acres around this cemetery. The families of Staten, Shannon, Mullen, Newton and Pressgrove and the rest of the folks buried here are related by birth or marriage.

I have placed some of my grandparents, Thomas & Selia Staten, Harvey and Betsy Elizabeth Sherrod Staten in this cemetery, because I do not know where they were buried. The land patent office shows that Thomas, and Harvey Staton purchased land in this area in the early 1800's. I have no dates of death and the birth dates are estimated from the census.
