The earliest documented head of the Beaver family, Henry grew to manhood in North Carolina and later came to Ohio, where he met and married his first wife, (Elizabeth) Annie Sellers. In 1820, he was living in Butler County with his wife, two sons, and two daughters. In 1830, he came with his family to Hamilton County, Indiana, and entered a tract of government land containing half a section, and lived on this farm until his son, William H., was about 35 years of age. "Henry Beaver, Justus Scott, and Wm Brown came in the same year (1830), each having entered land in 1829." A land patent issued to Henry in 1829 for Indiana land showed he was a resident of Butler County, Ohio.
The first wife of Henry Beaver died when the youngest, William Henry, was a babe in arms and so young that he had no recollection of his mother. Henry was appointed guardian over his remaining three minor children, Sarah, Moses and William H. At the age of 42, Henry married Mrs. Anna (Branham) Sloan, a widow of Hamilton county. By 1850, Henry and Anna had six children of their own ranging in age from 1 to 10 years. Also in the household were sons Moses and William from the first marriage, and his stepchildren, James and Nancy Sloan.
Henry's son, William H., returned home to manage his father's farm as Henry became older. Before he died, Henry gave each of his children some of his property, dividing the farm among the children, or rather giving them notes for $500 each, which were to stand as liens against his estate. Son William H. Beaver acquired his father's farm by paying off every note.
Henry's obituary reads as follows:
"Uncle Henry Beaver of Delaware Township died on Saturday. Was very old and feeble".
Henry is buried in the Beaver-Highland Cemetery. The Beaver Cemetery wrought ironwork over the cemetery entrance is now gone; however, Henry and many of his descendents' gravestones are in the older section of the cemetery on the hill.
