Henderson Smokey Mt. Mystery is the outcome of the long and meticulous research of the author F. Robert Henderson, with the help of his father. Tracing one’s family ancestry that goes back 233 years is not easy. In fact, it takes a lot of time, energy and effort in getting the details correctly. This is the one important discovery that the author realized as he came up with this book.
This book is a family history with data supplied by many different members of this one Henderson family of Sevier County Tennessee. This book is an example of how difficult some family histories can be, especially when records are lost or non-existent. Covering 233 years of genealogy that roots primarily in east Tennessee, this story shows the true essence of one’s passion and perseverance in paying tribute to where he came from.
The Henderson genealogy is very difficult to study according to the author. It has taken 31 years to compile the data in this book. Along with this interesting work, he also created a popular website in an attempt to trace all early Henderson families in Tennessee. The hard work and efforts exerted by Henderson to come up with this masterpiece sends many other tag lessons that surfaced during his venture. One of which is that people should keep good notes, check all references and they should not believe in everything they read. Well-documented records are the ones they should always rely on.
