Jesse Clarence Henderson was my grandfather's brother. He was always referred to in our family as Clarence. Clarence left Cherokee Co., Canton, Georgia when he and my grandfather were in their teens and my grandfather (Frank Henderson) never saw his brother again. He heard from time to time through the grapevine about Clarence but he always wonder what happened to his brother. I am just trying to put the pieces together. The family said Clarence ended up in South America. I have recently found out the he accually went to the Dominican Republic and in 1925 came back with a family and lived in New York. I find him again on the 1930 census in New York.
That's the last I have of him. Anyone with any info on this famil PLEASE contact me. I also have a great photo of Clarence when he was young. Below is the info that I have on Jesse Clarence Henderson.
