Biography

Jane was born in Hunterdon County, New Jersey in 1759. She was the youngest child of Hugh Martin and Jane Hunter. Jane’s father died when she was age two. She and her mother moved first to Orange, Virginia, then in 1772 to her brother Alexander’s plantation in Rockingham County, North Carolina. In 1778 Jane married Thomas Henderson and together they were parents of eight children. They were prosperous farmers with slave labor in Rockingham County. In 1807 Jane and Thomas were named in her brother Governor Alexander Martin’s Will. They inherited his Danbury Plantation in Rockingham County, North Carolina which is probably where Jane passed away and was buried in the family vault in 1815.

Notes

  • FamilySearch gives Jane’s date of birth and death as above without source. But family write she was almost two when her father died in 1861 so birth date given is consistent. She was in her brother Alexander’s Will at his death in 1807 but not in her husband’s Will at his death in 1821 so death would have been between those dates to which 1815 is consistent.
  • There is no grave marker but it is probable Jane was buried in brother Governor Alexander Martin’s family vault which was located on the Danbury Plantation in Rockingham County he had bequeathed to her. Years later the vault suffered damage and was reportedly moved but there are no records of where or whose bodies it contained. Missing are markers for Governor Alexander Martin, his mother Jane Hunter Martin who died four days later, Jane Martin Henderson and her husband Thomas Henderson all whom had lived on the Danbury Plantation.
