Henry served in the Summit Rifles, 16th MS Co. A.  16th Infantry Regiment was organized at Corinth, Mississippi, in June, 1861, and about 950 officers and men were mustered into Confederate service. They were recruited in the counties of Pike, Wilkinson, Holmes, Copiah, Adams, and Jasper. Sent to Virginia the regiment was brigaded under Generals Trimble, Featherston, Posey, and Harris. After fighting in Jackson's Valley Campaign, it participated in the campaigns of the Army of Northern Virginia from the Seven Days' Battles to Cold Harbor, then shared in the Petersburg siege south of the James River and the Appomattox operations. The 16th lost 6 killed and 28 wounded at Cross Keys, had 15 killed, 51 wounded, and 19 missing at Gaines' Mill and Malvern Hill, and sixty-three percent of the 228 engaged at Sharpsburg were disabled. It reported 23 wounded at Fredericksburg, sustained 76 casualties at Chancellorsville, and took 385 effectives to Gettysburg. On April 9, 1865, it surrendered 4 officers and 68 men. The field officers were Colonels Samuel E. Baker, Edward C. Councill, and Carnot Posey; Lieutenant Colonels Seneca M. Bain, Robert Clarke, Abram M. Feltus, and James J. Shannon; and Majors Jeff. Bankston and Thomas R. Stockdale.  (From https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/16th_Regiment,_Mississippi_Infantry)

Sorry it appeared as though the box was character limited.  I have all the stuff that can be found online.  I was hoping for some local historian information, maybe photos of his old homestead or of he and his wife.  There is much known on his famous younger brother Augustus, the tomato king, not so much on Henry.
