    1. ([PAERIE])HENDERSON Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph identified as Mrs. HENDERSON which was taken at the J. W. Press Studio in Girard, PA. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's with Mrs. HENDERSON appearing to be in her 20's or 30's at the time it was taken. I believe that this is a photograph of Martha DUNN HENDERSON of Girard, PA. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Martha and her family. Martha DUNN was b. 9 Dec 1842 in Erie, PA to parents John DUNN (1807-1891) and Eliza Ann REEDE or REED (1813-1899). Martha had 10 siblings including, Henry Clay; Harriett; George Wilbur; Helen Frances; Lincon A.; Mary Augusta; Ledia A.; Henrietta "Etta"; Eliza Jane "Jennie"; and Simeon DUNN all born between 1834 and 1852. Martha married Jesse A. HENDERSON (1840-1867) and together they had three children including, Lovina; Charles; and Albert L. HENDERSON all born between 1863 and 1865. Martha appears to have married a second time to James HENDERSON (b. 1842) and they had a daughter Cora or Cory E. HENDERSON (1873-1951). Martha died 10 Dec 1911 in Girard, PA and is buried in the Erie Cemetery in Erie, PA. Census records provide the following details: 1880 census of Girard, PA: James HENDERSON, age 37, Express Co.
