Generation: 3

  1. 4.  Daniel Thomas Henderson was born on 1 Apr 1844 in LaRue County, Kentucky (son of Baylor Henderson and Elizabeth Milby); died on 13 Mar 1917 in Owensboro, Daviess, Kentucky; was buried on 14 Mar 1917 in St. Raphael's Cemetery, West Louisville, Daviess, Kentucky.

    Notes:

    His son Joseph's death certificate calls him Robert Henderson, which would appear to be an error. The handwritten record of the birth of his son James Vincent Henderson calls him "D. T. Henderson". And on the record of his son Joseph's 1918 marriage to Elizabeth Pauline "Bessie" Elder, Joseph's parents are given as "Thomas & Teresa Henderson."

    Daniel married Teresa Laha on 30 Jul 1868 in LaRue County, Kentucky. Teresa (daughter of Daniel Laha and Catherine Haley) was born about 1843 in Kentucky; died on 9 Jan 1916 in Owensboro, Daviess, Kentucky; was buried in St. Raphael's Cemetery, West Louisville, Daviess, Kentucky. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 5.  Teresa Laha was born about 1843 in Kentucky (daughter of Daniel Laha and Catherine Haley); died on 9 Jan 1916 in Owensboro, Daviess, Kentucky; was buried in St. Raphael's Cemetery, West Louisville, Daviess, Kentucky.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: Abt 1845, Kentucky
    • Alternate birth: 30 Dec 1850, Nelson County, Kentucky

    Notes:

    Also called Teresa Lahey, Laher, Larsha. Called on her marriage record "Latney Larsha", as best we can make out.

    The 1850 census of LaRue County includes "Tho Laha", 7, daughter of "Danl D Laha". The writing is very light; what looks like "Tho" could easily be "The". The 1860 census record of what is clearly the same family in LaRue County, despite some inconsistencies, includes "Teresa Laha", 15, daughter of "Danl Layha". The 9 Jan 1916 death certificate of Theresa Henderson, daughter of Daniel Laha and Katherine Hale (both born in Ireland) gives her a birth date of 30 Dec 1950, but we're inclined to believe that the 1850 and 1860 census records are closer to the truth, and that she was probably born around 1844.

    • Alternate birth: 10 Apr 1842, Breckinridge County, Kentucky
    • Alternate death: 22 Dec 1919, Owensboro, Daviess, Kentucky

    Notes:

    Listed in the 1911 Owensboro city directory as "Newton, Margaret (wid. Henry), bds. 819 Mulberry."

    The 1910 US census lists her as a "farmer" and as an "employer".

    Her death date has often been given as 16 Dec 1919, or (as on her Find a Grave page) 23 Dec 1919, but the actual date given on her death certificate is simply Dec 1919. The doctor (Edward Barr) states that he has been attending her since 1 Feb 1919 and that 16 Dec 1919 is the last date on which he saw her alive. His signature on the death certificate is dated 22 Dec 1919. Furthermore, the Owensboro Messenger for Tuesday, 23 Dec 1919, says she died "Monday morning", which would indicate the previous day, 22 Dec 1919, the same day her death certificate was signed. The death certificate also states, in agreement with the next day's story in the Messenger, that she is to be buried the next day, 23 Dec, at St. Raphael's.

    Owensboro Messenger, Tuesday morning, December 23, 1919:

    Mrs Margaret M. Newton, one of the oldest and most highly esteemed women of Daviess county, died Monday morning at 7 o'clock at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Walter Elder, in the St. Raphael neighborhood, after an illness lasting for several months.

    Mrs. Newton was born in Breckenridge County seventy-nine years ago, and her husband died in this county twenty-seven years ago.

    The deceased is survived by four daughters, Mrs. James U. Hayden, Mrs. Walter Elder, of the county, and Mrs. Clarence Hayden and Mrs. J. M. O'Bryan, of Owensboro; also three sons, J. S. and L. V. Newton of Daviess county, and S. T. Newton of Jefferson county. The deceased is also survived by fifty-six grandchildren and forty-eight great grandchildren.

    The funeral will take place from St. Raphael's Catholic church this morning at 9 o'clock with service by Rev. Father Higgins, with interment in the church cemetery.
