Henry H. Henshaw died Jul 18 1863, Wytheville, Virginia.1  

On Declaration Day, May 29, 1869, short biographical sketches were read at Ironton, Lawrence County, Ohio, telling of soldiers from Lawrence County, Ohio who enlisted in the 2nd West Virginia Cavalry and "sacrificed their lives in defense of their Flag, the Union and Liberty":1

Henry H. Henshaw, Co. B, died at Wytheville, Va. of wounds received in action at the place, July 18, 1863.  No purer minded and nobler boy than Henry ever lived.  Life to him was a path of duty, which he followed faithfully.  He was always found at his post, and was loved and esteemed by all his comrades.

Henry was therefore apparently from Lawrence County, Ohio.1  

There is currently (2001) an unclaimed Civil War medal at the West Virginia State Archives which was awarded to Henry H. Henshaw and may be claimed by any proven descendent.2  

See also: Henry Henshaw whose family was connected with Lawrence County, Ohio.  

See also: Henry C. Henshaw who reportedly died from wounds received on the same date, yet was in a New York army, not West Virginia.  There seems to be a conflict between these two Henry Henshaws.
