Richard Augustus Henderson - Lookup request please
« on: Friday 15 January 21 00:16 GMT (UK) »
Any chance anyone can take a look at these for me please and forward some details.
Background - all I know about this gentleman is he lived in Virginia, possibly married a Frances/Emma Muir - dates unknown but they had a child John Archibald Robert Henderson in about 1859 Virginia. John emigrated to Australia in about 1873. They are a total mystery - both of them until 1880, a seamans certificate for John, and later John's death certificate stating POB Virginia USA.

1. Virginia, U.S., Marriage Records, 1936-2014 Richard Augustus Henderson (Virginia USA) - maybe a stretch but too much of a coincidence - given the immediate name connection.
2. Virginia, U.S., Deaths and Burials Index, 1853-1917 - Richard Henderson - Chesterfield, Virginia.
3. Virginia, U.S., Deaths and Burials Index, 1853-1917 - Richard Henderson 1894

I have not looked at census documents yet.
Would appreciate any help
Cheers

No 1 is a marriage in 2007. 
The 1894 Chesterfield death is of a 64 year old single man. he is black.
These are transcriptions only. on Ancestry.

Probably have more luck at Familysearch https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/results?count=20&placeId=351&query=%2Bplace%3A%22United%20States%2C%20Virginia%22
Side tracked to a friendís very interesting Norfolk families. MORGAN, PRATT, HORNOR, SUCKLING, GLEANE etc. And in London DOWNES, du CROZ, MORGAN (same MORGANs as the Norwich lot)
