Surname Saturday: Henson

The HENSON surname is Eileen's paternal line.  I do not know much about this line or its origins beyond Alabama in the 1840s.  Would love to hear from anyone who can connect with this line.

Stories and History:

Ahnentafel # 9: Margaret HENSON (c1840-1915).  Margaret was born circa 1840 in Alabama, according to 1910 census.  The 1870 and 1880 census have her born circa 1843.  Margaret married August 15, 1857 in Winston County, Alabama to Wyatt CUMMINGS.  They had 13 children together.  They moved to Dyer County, Tennessee after the Civil War.  Margaret died December 28, 1915 in Dyer County, Tennessee.
