The History of Steve Henderson's Family

My only grand daughter is Hannah Jane Henderson, born January 9, 2006 in California.  She should become a member of CHS, a status both her father and I have now, in the future. Hannah has a very diverse and complicated heritage; I hope you enjoy reading about this amazing young lady’s genealogical background.

Hannah’s paternal Henderson great-grandfather’s heritage is: Henderson - American Scot-Irish (family in America since 1804) and Hirschmann/Hursman - American German (family in America since 1758).

Hannah’s paternal Henderson great-grandmother’s heritage is:  Endrizzi - American Tyrolean-Italian from Austria (family in America since 1902) and Magagna - American Tyrolean-Italian from Austria (family in America since 1904).

        The heritage of Hannah’s paternal grandfather, John Steven Henderson - a CHS member - (born in Wyoming) is: American - 1/2 Tyrolean-Italian, 1/4 German and about 1/4 Scot-Irish.

Hannah’s paternal Ronald great-grandfather’s heritage is: Ronald - American Scot and Noel - American English (both families in America since about 1760) and Campbell - American Scot (family in America since 1870).

Hannah’s paternal Ronald great-grandmother’s heritage is: Cheeseborough/Chesbro - American English (family in America since 1630) and Carlson/Charlson - American Scandinavian (family in America since 1860).

        The heritage of Hannah’s maternal grandmother, Elizabeth Barratt formerly Henderson née Ronald (born in California) is: American - 1/2 English, 1/4 Scot and 1/4 Scandinavian.

        Therefore, the heritage of Hannah’s father, Nels Christian Henderson - a CHS member- (born in California) is: American - 2/8 Scot-Irish, 2/8 Tyrolean-Italian, 2/8 English, 1/8 German and 1/8 Scandinavian.

Hannah’s maternal Jahnke great-grandfather’s heritage is: Jahnke - American Canadian from Prussia and the Netherlands (family in Canada since 1850 and in America since 1950).

Hannah’s maternal Jahnke great-grandmother’s heritage is: Wiens - Canadian from southern Russia and the Netherlands (family in Canada since 1870).

Hannah’s maternal Friesen great-grandfather’s heritage is: Friesen - American Canadian from southern Russia and the Netherlands (family in Canada since 1860 and in America since 1950).

Hannah’s maternal Friesen great-grandmother’s heritage is:  (unrecorded) - Canadian from southern Russia and the Netherlands (family in Canada since 1860).

        The heritage of Hannah’s maternal grandfather, Errol Ross Jahnke (born in Idaho) is: American - 4/4 American-Canadian-Prussian-Russian-Dutch.

Hannah’s maternal Ellis great-grandfather’s heritage is: Ellis (plus Gibson and Tatman and Lambert)- English (in America since at least 1825) and Arceneaux (French Canadian-Acadian in Canada since 1625 and in America since 1775).

Hannah’s maternal Ellis great-grandmother’s heritage is: Joughin - American English from the Isle of Man (in America since at least 1825).

        The heritage of Hannah’s maternal grandmother, Eloise Carolyn Ellis formerly Migl formerly Jahnke née Ellis (born in Louisiana) is:  American - 3/4 English and 1/4 French Canadian-Acadian.

        Therefore, the heritage of Hannah’s mother - Alexis Carolyn Henderson formerly Shiavo née Jahnke (born in California) is: American - 4/8 Canadian-Prussian-Russian-Dutch, 3/8 English and 1/8 French Canadian-Acadian.

So, in the grand scheme of families, Hannah Jane Henderson - a future member of CHS - is American whose heritage is: 
        5/16 Canadian-French-Dutch-Prussian-Russian (all from her mother’s Jahnke and Ellis families);
        5/16 English (3/16 from her mother’s Ellis-Joughin families and 2/16 from her father’s Ronald-Chesbro families);
