Henry was born in 1809. Henry and Ann married in 1834 in Hamilton County, Ohio.[1] He passed away in 1881.[2] The Broadwells (an unknown number) were among the earliest settlers of Mt. Carmel/Indian Hill area just east of Cincinnati, Ohio, the descendants of Henry and some others qualify as First Families of Ohio.

The town of Broadwell, in Athens County, Ohio is believed to be named after him.

Research Notes

One source gave his marriage location as Marietta (Washington County), Ohio, but their marriage record clearly shows Hamilton County. Cincinnati is listed in another place, and that is in Hamilton County, and Broadwells have a long history in the Cincinnati area, so that is the most likely place.
