Oct 9, 2008: Another shortlived HENDERSON?

While checking off the latest batch of merges and hints from OneGreatFamily
, one that popped up was for a John Burnett HENDERSON. The hint wasn't him, but it did prompt me to search for a likely marriage and John's fate after the 1901 census (Whitehaven, Cumberland). Looks like he probably married Mary J REAY and had at least 3 children, Annie B, George R and Williamina HENDERSON, who all show up in the birth index with mother REAY. However, it also looks like he probably died relatively young, as there's a 29 year old John B HENDERSON of the right age registered as dying Cockermouth in 1918. All to be confirmed.
