Henry York was the fourth of five children born to Henry York and Mary Hall of Long Buckby England. He emigrated in 1844 to Canada at the age of two with his family. His mother died on Grosse Isle PQ within a number of days after they landed, leaving his father a widower with five children. The family homesteaded on Owen Sound in Ontario where his father re-married and later emigrated again to Manitoba in 1878.
Henry did not follow his father to Manitoba having already relocated to Wisconsin where he very briefly served in the U.S. Civil War. Having enlisted on Apr 20 1861 in the Union Rifle Co. at Camp Scott in Milwaukee, he was discharged one month later on May 18, 1861 for disability.
Henry may have returned to Canada for a while, but according to Henry's Declaration of Intention to become a citizen of the Untied States, he landed in the United States on or about March 20, 1871. Henry was naturalized at the courthouse in Cedar Rapids about 1880.
Known addresses in Cedar Rapids include 596 E. Ave, Central Park, 514 and 516 S. 10th St. Sometime before 1915 Henry and Sarah moved to a farm in Cedar County IA.
Henry was the janitor at the St. Paul's Methodist Church in Cedar Rapids for some years.
