In His Youth

The picture to the right shows the father of Ellen Dorcas Henderson in his youth. Nicknamed "Sonny" he was born 22 October 1843, and married Armilda (Millie) Berryman. Nicknames must have been popular during this period. Sonny is leaning back, hands crossed, and a certain sadness about his face. His legs are crossed and he almost seems resigned to his fate. His hair and beard are well kept, and his coat is buttoned high up the chest. Holding things in I guess. Pictures of life, what stories do they tell? He died 12 April 1908, and is buried next to his wife in the Winchester-Clark County Cemetery. I wish I had been able to ask him some questions about the Henderson Clan.
