He grew up in Fountain Township and attended the Winslow School and the Methodist Church. He followed the occupation of farmer. He married Viola Francelia Hungerford on December 28, 1875 in Fountain. Her parents were Gideon Hungerford and Amanda Winslow. She was born on July 16, 1858 in Fountain Township. Amanda Winslow was a daughter of Enoch Winslow, brother to Hosmer, Henry's father. He married his first cousin.

The following is his newspaper obituary notice:

Henry Allen Winslow was born May 17, 1852 in Cattaraugus County, New York. His parents immigrated to Fountian, Minnesota in 1854.

He is the youngest of nine children. Four brothers and one sister living and two sisters having gone before.

He was married to Viola Hungerford, Dec. 28th 1875, and came to the farm in Beaver, Minnesota, where they have since lived, with the exception of four years, which he resided in Chester, Iowa. His wife, and two sond and one daughter, and two grandchildren are left to mourn his departure.

When a young man, he was baptized by immersion and united with the Methodist Church at Fountain, Minnesota and later
the M.E. church at Chester, Iowa, of which he has been a member till time of death.

He was a rural mail carrier for 7 1/2 years, until about a year ago, his health failed.

He was a good husband, a loving father and a kind neighbor. It was not so much he said, but the life he lived every day. He passed away at his home in Beaver, Sunday evening at five o'clock, March 26th, after an illness of abut a year.

Gone but not forgotten.
Tis hard to break the tender cord
When love has bound the heart.
Tis hard, so hard to speak the word,
"We must forever part."

Dearest loved one we must lay thee,
In the peaceful grave's embrace.
But thy memory will be cherishe,
Till we see thy heavenly face.
