Born Jun 13 1792, Vermont.3,5
Christened Apr 3 1805 at First Presbyterian Church at Genoa, Cayuga County, New York.5

Harry was one of the first settlers in/near Nelsonville, Athens County, Ohio - his name was shown on a subscription list to the Hocking Bridge, Jan 1 1827.8
Harry and family were shown in the 1830 census, Canaan Township, Athens County, Ohio:9
Harry and family were shown in the 1840 census, Canaan Township, Athens County, Ohio:10
On Apr 3 1844, Harry Henshaw and his wife conveyed 83.034 acres of land in Canaan Township, Athens County, Ohio to a David Williams; after the death of David Williams his land was sold in a sheriff's auction on June 29, 1875. This land adjoined a parcel owned by a Manuel Henshaw11,12,13 (probably Harry's brother Gilbert Manuel Henshaw).14
Harry and family were shown in the 1850 census, Cannan Township, Athens County, Ohio:3
Minerva, apparently widowed, was shown in the 1860 census, Cass Township, Wapello County, Iowa, living in the household of daughter Urina:16
Note that the children shown here are somewhat speculatively connected with this family. These children all have records in Athens County, Ohio in this same time period and are believed to be children of this marriage, but no substantial corroborating evidence has yet been found.
Also, the family of brother Nathaniel G. Henshaw was shown in the 1830 census, Athens County, Ohio. Some or all of the children currently thought to be the children of Harry might actually be brother Nathaniel's children.14
See also: Daniel Henshaw #9247 who in 1860 was living very nearby to Minerva, daughter Urina and son Jefferson. Daniel is very possibly another son of this family.14
