Henderson County North Carolina was once part of the Cherokee Nation and was not opened to pioneer settlers until treaties were signed with the Cherokee Nation in 1777 and 1785.

The county was formed in 1838 from the southern part of Buncombe County.

Henderson County and Hendersonville North Carolina were named after Judge Leonard Henderson (1772 - 1833), Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court.

Our goal at Genealogy Trails is to transcribe and post genealogy and historical data so family researchers can track their ancestors through time throughout the country. We gratefully accept contributions of raw data such as census information, marriage/birth/death records, obituaries, county histories, biographies, old newspaper items - anything that would help someone build their family tree! Feel free to email with your data contributions - every little bit helps!

Want to help?

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be successful. If you are interested in joining our group, view our Volunteer Page and then contact Kim.
