James Henry is the youngest of the 11 children of John Leonard and Sophia Zwicker.
The following story, although it says "John Henry" (James Henry's brother's name), presumably refers to James Henry:
"When Leonard's first wife died (Sophia Swicker Womboldt) there were many living children. He and Sophia had 11, but some were grown or died in infancy. However, when Olivia saw the baby, James Henry (born 1866), her heart went out to the whole family. This little guy was dirty and full of sores. She married Leonard. His oldest daughter at the time was almost as old as Olivia."
James Henry married Netty Malay in 1886 at Lock Harbour.
