    • Judge Henderson came to Callaway with his father, from Fleming Co., Ky., in 1823; in 1827 obtained a situation in a store in Fulton, Mo., as a clerk; in 1830 he opened a store of his own in the same town; elected Treasurer of Callaway in 1842; later treasurer of the Mo. State Insane Asylum No. 1, located at Fulton; Second Treas. of Westminster College. In 1860 was instrumental in organizing the Fulton branch of the Western Bank of Mo., and was elected cashier, which position he held during the life of the bank, 1860-65. Mrs. Henderson was one of the thirteen charter members of Fulton Presbyterian Church.

      Headstone photo on findagrave shows "Father, Mother" below inscription. Wife Emily died before husband James, and findagrave lists her as being buried in the Hockaday burying ground. Although the findagrave photo shows the headstone in Hillcrest, "A History of Northeast Missouri" states he was the second burial in the Old Auxvasse Presbyterian Church cemetery.

      Judge Henderson was a son of Daniel Henderson, who died July 10, 1828, and was the second person buried in Old Auxvasse Presbyterian church cemetery, the first person buried in the cemetery being a child. Judge Henderson was a successful merchant in Pulton from 1830 to 1842, when he was elected county treasurer, and he held that position until he became treasurer of the State Hospital. He continued as treasurer of the hospital until 1883. Judge Henderson assisted in organizing the Fulton branch of the Western Bank of Missouri in 1857 and became its cashter, continuing in the position until after the beginning of the Civil war, when the bank went into liquidation. The bank was the first in Callaway county, and the Callaway Bank of Fulton traces its history back to it. Judge Henderson lived many years in a brick house on the north side of the courthouse square in Fulton. His wife was Emily Boone, daughter of Jesse Boone and granddaughter of Daniel Boone. He died in Fulton in January, 1884.

      State Hospital For The Insane

      The State Lunatic Asylum, now known as State Hospital No. 1, was located in Fulton on July 13, 1847. An act of the general assembly approved on February 16, 1847, provided for the establishment of the institution, and for its location within the counties of Boone, Callaway, Chariton, Cole, Cooper, Howard, Moniteau and Saline. When the commissioners met at Boonville, bids from a number of counties were received, and the offer of Callaway to give about five hundred acres of land and $11,500 in money being considered the best, the institution was located here. The contract for erecting the building was let to Solomon Jenkins on April 16, 1849, for $47,450, and the building was opened and the first patient t received on December 2, 1851. The first superintendent of the hospital was Dr. Turner R. H. Smith, and the first treasurer Judge James S. Henderson. Charles H Hardin, afterward governor of Missouri, was the first secretary of the board of managers, and held the position about ten years. The hospital was closed during part of the Civil war and the buildings and grounds were used for barracks by the Federal soldiers stationed in the county, and also for a military prison in which to confine disloyal Callawegians.

      HON. JAMES A. HENDERSON.

      SAINT LOUIS.

      JAMES A. HENDERSON is a native of Saint Louis county. He was born March 13, 1839, and is the son of George Henderson, a wealthy merchant. His mother before marriage was Miss Mary Williams. James was educated at the University of Missouri, Columbia; afterward studied law at the Kentucky Law School, Louisville, leaving that institution in 1859. He was engaged in farming from that time until 1865. In 1866 he removed to Boone county, Missouri, where he held several offices of trust. He was assessor of that county four years, and was appointed judge of probate for that county in 1872, and held that office until the spring of 1873, when he removed to Saint Louis county. He commenced the practice of law in Saint Louis in 1874.

      Upon the separation of the city and county in 1877 he was appointed judge of probate for Saint Louis county, holding that office until January, 1883.

      Judge Henderson has the respect of the entire community for the ability and candor with which he investigated every subject which came before him. He is learned in the law pertaining to probate matters, and it has been said that his opinion was never reversed by the appellate court while he was on the bench. He is a careful, painstaking lawyer, and thoroughly reliable in all of his dealings.

      Judge Henderson was married several years ago to Miss Virginia L. Royal, and they have six children. [1, 3, 4]
