Henry may have been born in Miami, Clinton County, OH and he may have married Eunice on 5 Oct 1865 at Mill Creek MM, Hendricks County, IN.
By 1900, he may have been a boarder (was Eunice gone by then?) with the Hoyt family in Saint Joseph, Champaign County, IL where is daughter Anna lived about 1896 [per her marr. cert.], and maybe later.
In an Indianapolis Monthly Meeting registry, Henry is listed with his wife Eunice, and children Mary, Arminua[?], and Clarkson. Also listed in this grouping are Horace Hockett, Mary Hinchley, David Hunt, and Martha Hunt. Horace and Mary are not yet (as of Feb 2021) in this database, Are David and Martha, siblings of Lydia Hunt, the wife of Henry's brother Alvah? (As of this date, her sibling is named Davis, but this may be an error.) [religious-registry-ind-mm-member-1883-53]
In an Indianapolis Monthly Meeting registry, Henry, Enuice, and their three children Mary, Arminua[?], and Clarkson as well as Horace Hockett (unknown relationship) were received from the Millbrook MM in Indiana on 20 Dec 1873, and were granted a certificate back to Mill Creek on 17 Mar 1880. (The other individuals in this grouping changed meetings on a different date.) I'm not clear on why they changed meetings then returned after noly 7 years. [religious-registry-ind-mm-member-1883-53]
The Millbrook MM meeting house is located in Center Township, Hendricks County, just west of Danville, at 1845 South County Road 250 West, Danville, Indiana, roughly 20 miles west of Indianapolis. The location is a few hundred feet north of W County Rd 200 S. (The location was obtained from a Facebook post promoting a Danville Library trip to Mill Creek Meetinghouse and Cemetery in 2019, a rootsweb.com entry 〈http://sites.rootsweb.com/~inhendr2/MillCreek.html〉, and a FindAGrave map to the Mill Creek Friends Cemetery.)
The orignal Indianapolis MM meeting house (built in 1865) was located in central Indianapolis on the triangular property bounded by N Delaware St., E St Clair St., and Fort Wayne Ave. This parcel is now a small, tree-filled green area and a parking lot for the Central Christian Church at 701 N Delaware.
