  • Notes 
    • Henry in 1838 was editor of the Barnstable "Patriot," a leading newspaper in his native county, Barnstable. He graduated at Yale College in 1842 and studied law at Cambridge, was admitted to the Suffolk bar in 1844, and practiced in Boston. He was a member of the state legislature in 1861-3; also of the Republican National Convention in 1864, which renominated Mr. Loncoln for the presidency. In 1869 he was appointed judge of the Superior Court of Massachusetts, which office he resigned in after years on account of ill-health. In 1882 the office of judge of the Probate Court for his native county was tendered to him, but declined.
