The meeting house is gone at Yankee Point. However, the cemetery remains, and seems to be in a fair condition. The cemetery is significant for me, in that I have family buried there. The headstones of the Henderson were bright and clean, although they had been in place for over 100 years. These pictures were taken in June, 2001.
The daughter of Joseph and Mary (Dillon) Henderson was Josie, who married Homer David Haworth. Mary was the daughter of Charity Haworth.
This is a picture of Joseph Henderson, standing at the head of the machine, in Danville IL. (click on the picture to view the larger picture)
