In post-war life Henry left Cleveland and established the firm of Pickands, Brown, and Company, in Chicago. The firm was in the iron ore and shipbuilding business on the Great Lakes. For a time Henry resided in Marquette, Michigan, but relocated to Chicago where he eventually died.
There was confusion at his death. One source stated that he was cremated at Graceland Cemetery in Chicago, and other stated that he was to be buried in Marquette. Whatever the case, he lies buried in Bennington, Vermont with his wife were they had maintained a summer home.
