Birth: May 12, 1848
Death: Jun. 27, 1902

In a book about Venango County, it says:
Henry, as a child, accompanied his parents to Venango County, growing up on the farm. He received his education in the public schools,and in his youth served an apprenticeship to the shoemaker's trade at Franklin, where in 1870 he formed a partnership with Elias Borland, as dealers in boots and shoes and leather. In 1875 he sold his interest in the business and went out to the Black Hills, but returned to Pennsylvania the following autumn and entered the shoe business in Bradford, remaining there for two years. The oil excitement brought him back to Clintonville, where he became owner of the old Cunningham farm, upon which he spent the rest of his days, engaged in agricultural work and the production of oil, which he found upon his property in paying quantities. In the spring of 1889 he also engaged in the shoe business at Clintonville, which he carried on until his death. He was well known in the borough and township where he filled the office of assessor for six years with credit to himself and satisfaction to all concerned. Politically he was a Republican. He belonged to the Knights and Ladies of Honor at Clintonville.
