Long Description:
This cemetery has a nice sign, but that is all that is nice about its condition. It is completely grown up in weeds and yuccas. According to FindAGrave there were 15 interments at Henderson cemetery. Although there was one grave marker with no dates, the oldest recorded grave was in 1838. The final grave was in 1929.

This cemetery is also known as the P. P. Henderson Cemetery, because there is also supposed to be an A. J. Henderson Cemetery somewhere nearby, which is on private land.

Earliest Burial: 1/6/1838

Latest Burial: 7/9/1929
