Cousin Sheri has come up with family history gold once more, with a group photo showing several of the kin during the mid to late 1910s. Several important members of the Reverend’s family are present including:

Top Row: Isabella Ross (Henderson) Gow – Jane R (Taylor) Henderson aka Mrs. Adam C. Henderson – Adam Cunninghame Henderson Gow

Bottom Row: Mary (McDonald) Henderson – James Henderson – Agnes (Nan) Henderson aka Mrs. John T Henderson

Thanks again to Sheri for the work that went into finding this photo and sharing it.

    James, I would recommend that you consider having your Y chromosome tested using any of the services available, including Family Tree DNA http://www.familytreedna.com/). If your DNA matches one of the Gunn DNA patterns, then you are probably a Caithness Henderson. If not, it does not mean that your Hendersons did not come from there, it just means that there may not be enough data to tie you to a region of Scotland. I wish you luck on your search – it is a lot of work.
