Henry's wife, Rebecca, was born 1835/36 in Indiana; her parents were born in Maryland - I don't know if this will help you any in determining her parentage. (There is about a ten year age difference between Henry and Rebecca - my files indicate he may have been married previously, perhaps in Indiana.)
