1) This is NOT Henry E. Hanselpacker, b. 1846 in Canning, New Brunswick, Canada
Henry Henselbecker, Civil War Veteran. Henry Henselbecker fought in the Amer. Civ. War, enlisting in Iowa. Same, appearing in Civil War Pension claims, filed from Montana and California. Same, associated with Debra Henselbecker, and others of the same spelling in Ohio, Iowa, North Dakota, Montana and California
Henry was a doctor, and, as such was involved with helping victims of the great San Francisco earthquake.
Following is a possible scenario for Henry, et al
The first record on Henry, s/o "Hank", is his enlistment, at Orleans, 29-Mar-1864, into the Union Army. He fought in the 6th Iowa Cavalry and the 12th Iowa Infantry, Company C, and was still a Private, when discharged:
Residence: Orleans, Iowa Occupation: Service Record:
Enlisted as a Private on 29 March 1864 at the age of 18 [...makes him born 1845 or 46?]
Enlisted in Company C, 12th Infantry Regiment Iowa on 29 March 1864.
Mustered out Company C, 12th Infantry Regiment Iowa on 20 January 1866 in Memphis, TN.
Also listed in "Roster of Iowa Soldiers in the War of the Rebellion" as:
Henselbecker, Henry. Age 18. Residence Orleans, nativity Ohio. Enlisted March 29, 1864. Mustered March 29, 1864. Mustered out Jan. 20, 1866, Memphis, Tenn. Thus indicating his Ohio connection, at least.
Company battles during his enlistment were as follows:
Fought on 07 April 1864 at Pleasant Hill, LA.
Fought on 09 April 1864 at Pleasant Hill, LA.
Fought on 06 June 1864 at Old Lake Village, AR.
Fought on 22 June 1864 at White River, MO.
Fought on 13 July 1864 at Tupelo, MS.
Fought on 14 July 1864 at Tupelo, MS.
Fought on 15 July 1864 at Tupelo, MS.
Fought on 15 December 1864 at Nashville, TN.
Fought on 16 December 1864 at Nashville, TN.
Fought on 27 March 1865 at Spanish Fort, AL.
Fought on 29 March 1865 at Spanish Fort, AL.
Fought on 06 April 1865 at Spanish Fort, AL.
In 1890, he appears in the Montana Census as residing in Madison County, in the township of Red Bluff, on page 074 in the Montana 1890 Veterans Index. He then files, along with Carrie (his wife), his claims to a Civil War Pension, 17-Jul--1900 in Montana and what appears to be 4-Sep-1923 in California.
- Debra Henselbecker (poss. a dau. or g.dau?) married a Jason Phillips, likely in Montana, and had a son, Jonah L. Phillips. Jonah died 29-Nov-1998 in Cascade, Montana, never having married. One MIGHT assume Debra to be a cousin or aunt to Brett Henselbecker, but I've not yet confirmed such.
In 1880 US Census, appears as single, age 34, in Montana (Alder Gulch, Madison, Montana). No other Henselbecker in the 1880 Census, so assume father "Hank" had died by this time.
What does puzzle me is that he's listed as born in Indiana, as are his father and mother. This causes some concern, since original thoughts were that his father was born in Germany. Also, since he was b. in 1846, why could he NOT be the man who was associated with the Bottlers? Though, that would mean Carrie had married Ernst, at some point... which is a bit hard to swallow. Also, in the 1880 US Census for Alder Gulch, Madison, Montana, his listed occupation is Miner. I thought THIS one was supposed to be a Doctor? Something to consider, IS the fact that there may be 1) a missing generation or 2) a split generation (whereby Henry and Henry "Hank" are one and the same????
In 1930 Census, where Carrie is living with her mother in California, and son Henry with her (aged 10), Henry, though since dead, was listed as being from Ohio (birthplace). In earlier Census records, as above, he is listed as born in Indiana.
1910 Census Information:
California, Santa Clara, San Jose City, ward 4, ED 104, sheet 13A:
Living as a lodger at 193 South First Street, Henry is 68 years of age, single, b. Ohio, father, Germany, mother, Germany, occupation listed as "Agent, Drugs"... a pharmaceutical salesman???
Civil War info on Henry Henselbecker:
Henselbecker, Henry. Age 18. Residence Orleans, nativity Ohio. Enlisted
March 29, 1864. Mustered March 29, 1864. Mustered out Jan.
20, 1866, Memphis, Tenn.
1860 US Census for Orleans Township, Winneshiek Co, Iowa:
Amongst "Free inhabitants of the Township of Orleans, in the County of
Winneshiek,... enumerated... 23d day of July AD 1860..."
Abode 893, family 857 -
Henry Henselbecker, 45, male, Farmer, b. Baden (Germany)
Catherine ", 58, female, b. Bavaria (Germany)
Henry ", 14, male, b. Ohio
Frederick Pedlar (Bottler???), 17, male, Farm Laborer, b. Ohio
Same Henry listed as 14 in 1860 is listed as 68 in 1910. This puts his birthyear between 1842 and 1846-ish. In 1910, he was a lodger in San Jose, Santa Clara, CA. and listed as an "Agent - Drugs".. pharmacist or "pill peddlar" I would imagine.
His listing in the New Mexico death records, states he died 28-Jul-1921 in Santa Fe, age "796" which is believe to be 79 years, 6 months, but the trailing six is not necessarily indicative of months, since the only numbers in this position in the listing are 2, 3, 4, and 6. Could be a code for something??
