Henry was the son of Henry HUKILL (1768-1798) and Elizabeth FOSTER (1763-1822), both of whom were born in Maryland. Henry Brevard Hukill's parents married on January 28, 1792, in St. Mary Anne's Episcopal Church, in North East, Cecil County, Maryland. The couple's first child was born in Delaware in 1793. The family moved to Clark County, Kentucky, before 1797. Henry's father died before Henry was 18 months old, and his widowed mother moved into Ripley County, Indiana, with Henry and his brother, James Foster Hukill.

Henry married Rachel COPELAND in January 1823, in Jefferson County, Indiana. Rachel was 18, and Henry was about 25. Nine months and 12 days after the wedding, Rachel delivered their first child, a son, and named the baby after Henry. Their marriage produced 10 children: five sons and five daughters. Rachel was 43 when their 10th child was born

Three of their sons fought for the Union in the Civil War, and two of the three died in service.
(1) Clayton B. served in Company I, 5th Illinois Cavalry. He died June 19, 1863, in Helena, Phillips County, Arkansas.
(2) Willis F. was a sergeant with Company E, 66th Regiment, Illinois Cavalry. He died July 9, 1864, in Cumberland General Hospital, Nashville, Tennessee.
(3) Morris H. served in Company G, 62nd Illinois Infantry. He survived the war.

Henry became a probate judge in Ripley County, Indiana, on August 28, 1929. He served until July 1836. On August 11, 1840, he was named an associate judge on the Circuit Court in Ripley County. He also was named as a commissioner by the Indiana General Assembly in 1829, tasked to "review, mark, and locate a state road, beginning at the point where the road leading from Madison in Jefferson county to Lawrenceburgh in Dearborn county, intersects the line dividing the counties of Jefferson and Ripley, thence to the Cross Plains in Ripley county." His appointment was made in "An act to relocate that part of the state road, leading from Madision to Lawrenceburgh which lies between the line dividing the counties of Jefferson and Ripley, and thence to the Cross Plains in Ripley county."

On the 1850 U.S. census of Brown Township, Ripley County, Indiana, when Henry was about 53, he was the census taker for that district, and he noted himself as a farmer. He was noted as the "assistant Marshall" of the census takers. He began his portion of the census with himself, and he ended it with his son, Henry H. Hukill. His signature is on the 1850 census, Roll 169 for Indiana's Ripley County, at page 284.

Henry and Rachel were in Neoga, Cumberland County, Illinois, in 1860, with children Milton, Clayton, Sarah E., America, Morris, and Cornelia. Henry was farming. (Ancestry.com has incorrectly indexed the name as "Henry B. Hinch.")

Rachel was listed on the 1870 Census of Neoga Township, Cumberland County, Illinois, on page 40, at line 7, with son Milton and daughter Cornelia. Rachel was listed as the owner of the real estate, and son Milton was farming the land.
