Hanson, Henson, Hinson, Hynson and Allied Family Names. Vol. III:
Early Records of the Carolinas
Ethel N. Miner
This particular volume concentrates on Hxnsons in North and South Carolina. It is a must for anyone interested in the Hanson/Henson/Hinson/Hynson surname, allied families, and friends! Some of the names in these records include connections which cannot be found elsewhere. Hxnsons in the Carolinas include earliest records on both, immigrants with possible connections to England, Ireland, Scotland, and Bermuda, plus those who migrated southward with other early pioneers in search of cheap land and a better life. Source documents include records from the first Cherokee Indian Reservation Rolls of 1817, Revolutionary pensions, church records, taxes, wills, land grants, marriage records, census, Bible, and family records. The listings in this volume give a wealth of information for these pioneers and their descendants, including connections to allied families and/or other states when possible.
Entries are presented in a convenient table format, grouped by state with Hansons, Hensons, Hinsons, and Hynsons listed alphabetically by first name within each state. Eleven column headings include: LN (first two letters of the last name), FIRSTNAME, IO (initial only), FATHER, MOM_SPOUSE, EVENT, EVENTDATE, CITY, COUNTY_PAR (parish), ST (state), and SOURCE. A full-name index of allied family names adds to the value of this work.
