s/o Johann Heinrich Christian Brandt (1787-1847) m1815 Catharine Sophie Dorothee Busch (1795-aft 1846).
Henry immigrated from Bremen on the S. S. Rastede with siblings and family, and arrived in New York on June 8, 1852.
Family records spell the name BRAND in America, but it is BRANDT in Hannover (now Niedersachsen).
Henry succumbed to the cholera epidemic that raged through the country and died just after buying a farm in Limestone Township of Kankakee Co. IL leaving a wife and surviving son & daughter.
He had married Catharine Marie Dorothee "Dora" Freise in Idensen, Kingdom of Hanover, on 6 Aug, 1846.
One daughter, Katharine Henriette Sophie Marie Brand (1847-1849) was buried in Idensen. Another daughter, Dorothea, who also died of cholera in 1852, was buried with or by him in Limestone Twp. No actual grave is found for her.
There is confusion in the records of his death date and of his brother Wilhelm's death date. The obituary printed in USA differs from the record in Germany.
