288    HENDERSON FAMILY

      Location - adjacent to Maplewood Cemetery near Gattis St.

      Coordinates: 35d 59m 38.5s N; 78d 55m 02.5s W Click here for Google maps

      The Henderson Family cemetery is on land owned by the City of Durham and is just outside the chain link fence that encloses Maplewood Cemetery (city owned cemetery). The cemetery is presently (March 2012) covered by lots of old growth vegetation, fallen trees and english ivy. Maplewood Cemetery maintenance crews are planning to do some preliminary clean-up of the area so that gravemarkers and funeral home markers may be located.

      Already, there are three monuments and several metal funeral home markers visible. There is an iron fence surrounding one plot which may contain four or more graves. there are numerous sunken spots which indicate graves in the cemetery.

      The following information on known burials in the Henderson Family cemetery was researched by Estelle Clark. The information comes from death certificates, grave markers, wills and other records. Many thanks go to Estelle Clark for her diligent efforts and photographs.

      The land containing the cemetery was deeded in 1935 and 1937. Death certificates were not required until mid 1909 in Durham and 1913 in NC, so there are likely burials we will never document since Dempsey and Emma Henderson bought the land in 1872 (were living on it before then). Dempsey died in 1898 and likely that is the point at which the "cemetery" was created, first as a family burial plot.
