Bio and Links
Bio Photo Working on the family genealogy and tracing my roots. Currently working on revising the Hendershot Genealogy Book trying to make the info current. I grew up in Hunterdon County, New Jersey where my family had originally settled but they had also spread out to Warren, Morris and Sussex Counties in New Jersey.

I've been adding others as I walk through cemeteries in hopes that it may help others find family members and trace their roots.

Sylvester Hendershot.
you are probably right, but I found the listing on the Fulton Newspaper site, -the Brooklyn Eagle so I assumed it was referring to the Greenwood cemetery in New York. I think I will move him to that cemetery - thanks -- have a wonderful New Year.

Canadian Hendershot gravestones
Hi Robert
I just found your name in connection to Michael Hendershot grave #35830062. You mention in your bio that you are researching the Hendershot family.

If you go to "findagrave" #82163405 you will find Michael Hendershot's grandson Christopher Hendershot 1734-1812. He is my 5th Great Grandfather. You will be able to link to other members of his family in Canada.

Warm regards,
Patricia Jackson

Hello Robert, In order to explain, this might be long. I have over time been trying to track my ancetors.. I originally started with Dodd, this being my grandfather. I found out that my grandmother (Nancy Elizabeth Cron) had been previously married to an "Ike Hendershot". I also found out that they raised 2 children. A Raymond and a "Rosie". Rose, Rosie, Rosa .... was suppose to have died at the age of 2 from pneumonia and buried in Baleville. Raymond was about 38 when he passed on a father's day, I understand from a massive heart attack. I really don't have any further information. Can you verify any of these? My mother often spoke of her brother Ray ( I now find out they were half siblings)and my sister of Uncle Ray. He was dead before I was born. There are 16 years between myself and my sister. Amazing how our trees branch when you start digging!!!

Lester & Calla Hendershot
Hello! There was a photo request for Lester K. Hendershot at Mt. Hebron Cemetery in Montclair. I took the picture and added it to the Fing-A-Grave site. Right next to Lester's grave was Calla's grave so I took a picture and added it to this memorial. I am sorry about the condition of Lester's marker but I didn't have equipment with me to remove the earth and foliage that covers it.

Thank You!
Thank you, Robert, for all your hard work! My grandmother was a Adeline Hendershot, daughter of James A. (1866-1926), who was son of James S. (1836-1925), son of Peter (1795-). Our paths cross often. I appreciate your accuracy and diligence. Marilyn Say-Murray
