HI I was just going thru boards again and seen no replies. I have been to a Mormon geneology search site and there are a few Alexander Hendersons for Guysbrough CO listed there it only gives birth place and dates but there seems to be a father and son there fron Guysbrough . Also there is Cementery listing For all of Guysbrough CO. I will give it to you also, I hope one or other will give you some help. Under Riverside listing there is a Alexander Henderson maybe two both guys. this is the cementery and the mormon site is. When you get to family search site type country canada in and NS. it will give you whole bunch scrool down to the two that says Nova Scotia. the place may be different that they were cencsus in but its NS people ok.
