Following is one of the Biographies and Stories which where gathered by Charles Sumner McKamy in the 1950s for publication in a Crawford County History Book. Unfortunately he passed away before the book was published.

Walter Glen Henderson, being the second of nine children to Andrew J. and Elizabeth Jane Hout Henderson, my parents.

I was born June 12, 1901 on the home place 4-1/2 miles southwest of Robinson.

I have three half-brothers living and one half-sister deceased. My earlier days were spent on the farm and working with a team of horses in the oil field, hauling water for my Father's threshing machine, which he operated for 35 years. I remember my Father getting up at 4 o'clock in the morning and going to the oil field, the oil boom having started in our community in 1906, where he would haul oil well equipment and he would not get home until after we were all in bed asleep and we often did not see him for a week at a time. He worked every day through all kinds of weather making a living for our family of which he was very proud and we boys were all provided with a team of horses with which we used in planting and tending the crops on the farm.

I received a common school education at the Wilson School, located 2 miles west and 1-1/2 miles south of Robinson. This schoolhouse was torn down and moved away in 1950 when several of our grade schools in the country were consolidated.

I united with the Bible Chapel Church when 15 years of age, holding my membership there until after my marriage with Miss Edith L. Taylor on Sept. 23, 1922 when my wife and I moved our membership to the U.B. Church here. I have served as President of the Men's Brotherhood Class and am now serving my third term as Sunday School Superintendent. I love my Church and the work I am doing with them.

When I moved to Robinson I got employment with the Carl Zwerman Pottery where I worked for 13 years and 3 months, then I worked for my brother on a farm and the for a short time I worked for the Robinson & Coal Co. before purchasing the Filling Station in 1937 which I have operated since that time.

We have two children, one daughter, Irma Louise and one son, William who is married and is employed at the Ohio Oil Co. Refinery here in Robinson. I have always had employment in Crawford County except on two very short occasions shortly after moving into Robinson.

I have served as Banker for the Modern Woodman of America, Camp #463 in Robinson for the past four years; am a Charter member of the Lions Club in Robinson; and am finishing my four year term as City Alderman in Ward 2; have been a member of Robinson Lodge 250 A.F.&A.M. since April 5, 1946 and was elected Worshipful Master of he Lodge for the year 1953 and am also a member of the Royal Arch Mason Chapter No. 250 of Robinson.
