Henry was born in 1865. He married Wilhemina Schomberg in 1893. Interestingly, his brother William married Wilhemina's sister Emma, so there were double cousins in the family. According to an article in the Arizona Public Service company magazine cited below, he was "successively a farmer, a miner and a real estate man. They lived on the farm until [1898 when George was 4 years old]. and then moved to Edwardsville." The sister-in-law at whose home he died was another Schomberg sister, Augusta, who never married. He passed away in 1934.
