This sparks a memory, but I don't have the info at my fingertips. I may have a corrupted name similar to this in info that came down through the family. I'll give you my line, and you can see if it helps. My Great Grandfather was born in Randolph County MO, I believe. I'll have to check that, but I think that is correct. His name was Henry Taylor Herndon and he was born in 1850. He became a doctor also, and his father was a doctor too. His father was James Henry Herndon. James Henry Herndon was born in Orange County VA. His father was Henry James Herndon of VA, who's father was Henry Herndon of VA, twin of Joel Herndon and son of Edward Herndon (married to Mary Ann Gaines). Edward's father was William Herndon, son of Edward Herndon, son of immigrant William Herndon of Tenterden.
