Henry served one year in Company C 6th Cavalry during the Civil War. When he returned to the Grand Rapids area he met and married Abigail Moorman. She was only 16.
Henry was a druggist and a doctor. They lived in Grand Rapids at several different locations: 20 Front St; 44 Canal St.; 90 Monroe; 194 Bridge; and 225 A. Division.
Their daughter Ada, was born in Grand Rapids, and then they moved to Newaygo, MI, in 1884, where he opened the "Peoples Drug Store". In 1890 Henry and Abby bought and operated the "Eagle Drug Store" in Fremont, MI.
In 1893 Henry was in his boat on Fremont Lake doing something to the sail. A woman saw him, and he appeared to be moving the boat around with a pole. He sat down and his head appeared to droop. After a few moments she looked again and could not see him in the boat. She called her husband, and they called for help. Henry was found floating in the water. It was determined that he had heart failure.
His obituary said, "Dr. Lever was a man of good impulses, full of generosity and kindness to his fellow man. His long and painful illness had made him more or less nervous and irritable of the late years, but always and through all his natural good spirits would prevail".
Henry was an influential Odd Fellow, serving on the grand Bodies and in Patiarchal order, also a member of Masonic Lodge of Fremont.
