Birth: 1828
Lancaster County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: May 28, 1874
Philadelphia
Philadelphia County
Pennsylvania, USA

Henry was the son of George and Anna (Bower) Rockey. He grew up in Bart Township in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, but his father died in 1842 and, shortly before 1857, his mother moved to Minneapolis, Hennepin County, Minnesota, with Henry and some of his siblings. Henry married a woman named Sarah, probably in Pennsylvania shortly before the move to MN. In Minnesota, the couple had three children, a daughter and two sons (one of whom died as an infant). Sometime after 1870, the family moved back to Pennsylvania and settled in Philadelphia. There, Henry died on May 28, 1874, of "congestion of the brain". He was buried in Mt Moriah Cemetery.
