It is not known whether Theodore was his middle name or his actual first name. In the Osage cemetery he is listed as Henry, same as his WWI draft registration. In the 1925 Iowa Census, he is listed as Henry and his parents as Henry O'Brien and Bridget McLaughlin. Sadie, his wife list parents of Loth Landberg and Johanna Myerson. In the 1900 Census in Dougherty, Iowa he is boarding with the McLaughlin family and is listed as Henry there too.
