Born Feb 25 18391,2,3,5 [Feb 5 18396], Griffin Mills, Erie County, New York1,2,3,5 [Aurora, Erie County, New York6].  

Charles was shown in the 1860 census (Jul 19 1860), living/working in the household of a Lewis Lincoln in Mt. Pleasant Township, Whiteside County, Illinois:7

Lewis Lincoln, age 39, born in New York; farmer.
Adaline Lincoln, age 29, born in Ohio.
Frank Lincoln, age 21, born in Ohio.
Augusta Rockwell, age 8, born in Illinois; attended school.
Chas Henshaw, age 24, born in Ireland; farm laborer.
In spite of the above showing Charles born in Ireland, it is believed that this census entry refers to this Charles Henry Henshaw, as later Civil War records, which seem to clearly match this Charles Henry Henshaw, show his residence in 1861 was Whiteside County, Illinois.  

During the Civil War, Charles served as a private, corporal, then sergeant in Company C, 8th Illinois Cavalry, Sep 2 1861
