A Joseph Henderson is indexed in the 1840 Federal Census for Thorn, Perry County, Ohio. The Joseph Henderson I'm looking for was a War of 1812 Veteran. He was born in Maine in 1791. His widow, Susannah (Story) Henderson in her pension application stated they had nine children. Six are enumerated in the 1850 Federal Census in Kent County, Michigan: Caroline, Jasper, Altany, Helen, Elvira, Louisa. I'm looking for baptismal or birth records for these children. Joseph was one of the founder of the Congregational Church in Newaygo County, Michigan so I guess they might have been members of a Methodist or Congregational Church in Ohio. Thank you, Claudia
