The Hendersons One Family's Legacy : Faith, Virtue, Loyalty Pioneers and Patriots
by Pamela Douglas Brust




Overview -
Pioneers and patriots, the Henderson family left behind a legacy of historical treasures in word and deed, allowing an unprecedented look into the past. Their Victorian-era plantation home, constructed in the 1800s and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a living monument to those who walked its halls in an unbroken chain of five generations. Family patriarch Alexander Henderson arrived in Virginia in the 1700s, earning the title of Father of the American Chain Store, counting founding fathers George Washington and George Mason among his friends. He sent three of his sons to what was then the wilds of the Mid-Ohio Valley. The Hendersons took part in what may be the only duel recorded north of the Ohio River and played a role in thwarting the treasonous exploits of Aaron Burr. Some family members also served on both sides during the Civil War, surviving turmoil, treachery, and tragedy.
