His given name was Francis but he went by Henry. Henry enlisted June 1864, 9th Battalion NC Sharpshooters, Co B,with brothers John and Ephraim. All the brothers were paroled at Appomattox Court House April 9, 1865. Henry is listed in muster rolls as Francis Henry, Francis Henry Lee, HL, and various forms of Barnacastle and Cassel. He used the name Henry Cassel or Barnacastle from the Civil War until his death. Some Appomattox records call him H.L.B. Cassel.
Henry married Jennie Goodel Bloss, and they moved to Colorado around 1887. Henry obtained a land grant on October 27, 1891, from the Denver Land Office (a Preemption Act entry in Register of Cash Receipts, and a Timber Culture Act in Register of Timber Culture Entries). It was for 160 acres in Lincoln County, CO. His name on that document was Henry Barneycassel.
In 1915, Henry and Jennie moved to Finchville, Nebraska, probably to be near brother John. They were in Colorado in early 1915, though, because Jennie received a manuscript from her maiden aunt concerning the Bloss genealogy, and it was sent to Deer Trail, Colorado.
According to letter from Frona, Henry always signed his name Henry Barnacassel, and his obituary called him Henry Barnacastle. Online source says the obituary in the Arnold Sentinal was published 7/11/1923 - if correct he died in July and the tombstone is probably hard to read.
Henry and family are buried next to brother John and family.
