Born about 1809, Virginia.1  

He married Belinda House1,3 [Melinda House5,7], May 25 18371,3.  Belinda, daughter of Aaron House & Phoebe Mitchell, was born May 13 1819, Virginia.1,3,5,6  

William and family were shown in the 1850 census (Dec 7 1850), Madison County, Virginia:1

William Henshaw, Jr., age 41, born in Virginia; farmer; $750 real estate.
Belinda Henshaw, age 32, born in Virginia.
Albert L. Henshaw, age 12, born in Virginia.
James W. Henshaw, age 10, born in Virginia.
Robert S. Henshaw, age 8, born in Virginia.
Francis M. Henshaw, age 3, born in Virginia.
Living next door in 1850 were William's parents.8  

William Henshaw, Jr. died before 1855.2,6  

After William died, an Alfred Tanner was named guardian of William Henshaw's four children.2  Alfred Tanner gave an accounting on Dec 31 1855, and another again on Dec 31 1856.2  These accountings listed the children of William and Belinda Henshaw as:2

Albert L. Henshaw, born 1838.
James W. Henshaw, born 1840.
Robert Samuel Henshaw, born 1843.
Francis M. Henshaw, born 1848.
Each year as Alfred Tanner rented out slaves, whatever income was given to Belinda for clothes and tutoring of the four boys.2  

Note that Eugenia was not mentioned in the guardianship accounts, and was born after William's death.  Eugenia, although a Henshaw by name, was apparently not William's biological child (she was apparently Belinda's child after William died).
