Henry was born on a farm in Eagle Township, La Salle, Illinois[1] to John Arenz and Wilhelmina Nass on 6 September 1878. He was the youngest of ten children, three dying in childbirth.[2] He lived and worked on his parents’ farm until sometime in the 1890's when he became a salesman. It was on one of these forays as a traveling salesman that he met and ultimately married Minnie V (Flowerree) Arenz in about 1906, based on the entries in the 1910 Census as being married for four years, and his occupation as a traveling liquor salesman in Los Angeles, CA.[3] He continued to reside in Los Angeles until his death on 31 December 1923.[4] His body was returned to Leonore, LaSalle County, Illinois for burial in Saints Peter and Paul Cemetery.[5]
