Henderson, Robert, D.D.
a Presbyterian minister, was born in Washington County, Virginia, May 31, 1764. Being left an orphan at an early age, he struggled hard in obtaining an education. He was licensed and ordained by the Abingdon Presbytery in 1788, and was pastor at Danbridge, Tennessee, where he remained more than twenty years. He afterwards preached at Pisgah, Murfrees Spring, Nashville, and Fraisklin. He died in July 1834. Dr. Henderson was a most earnest and vigorous supporter of gospel orders, especially as connected with the worship of God. See Sprague, Annals of the Amer. Pulpit, 3:528.
