Zella told me that Henry could be buried in Hollidaysburg Presbyterian Cemetery.

Special thanks to Zella who gave me valuable information about them in census and she lead me to find a book called Yankee Horseman in the Shenandoah Valley

Letter of J. M. Engle Long Beach, California dated November 7, 1911:

"My father's name was John and had a number of brothers, Henry, Daniel, Christopher, Joseph. I was told Henry was torn up and devoured by bloodhounds when attempting to escape from Libby Prison, during the war of the Rebellion. The party thrat told me he escaped with them and got away from the houds by climbing in a brushy tree. The Johnnies thought the houds had devoured all of the escaping party and left him in the tree. He afterward tramped barefooted, living on roots and berries until he arrived in the Union camp........"

Dear Jennie:

....."You asked me about Henry and Barney Engle. Barney is with us yet and is well, but Henry walked off without permission on the 15th of July and I received a letter from him since dated July 21st, at which time he was in Philadelphia, and said he would be at home in a day or two, and all I can tell him is that he had better soon return to this Company or he will be marked a deserter and sent after, which fact will teach him a lesson not to go away again without leave. Barney is very uneasy about him and knows not what to think of his father's proceedings. You may tell Mrs. Engle as much of this as you think proper, and all if you please...."

Pg. 69 (Henry's brother Joseph)
