In Search of ... J C Henneberger Part One

Lots has been written of Mr. Henneberger. 90% is in contecxt of the start of Weird Tales and his association with Lovecraft.

This has been a pet mission of Chrispy's. Who is this guy? What are his roots?

Well, I spent a little time and discovered he was the son of a farmer living in Greencastle, Pa. I could only locate two public documents, but one was a 1910 census, just a bit before he went to college - or he may have already begun and was commuting. I don't know.

He was a middle child, the only listed son with three sisters. Of interest, he may have been a "fraternal" twin, as his sister is listed as the same age. This is certainly not a 100% thing, as the "sibling" may not have been a sibling.

I list it below.
