Henry Hess was born about 1772. The information about Henry is minimal. There is a Henry in Pennsylvania before 1820 so it is entirely possible he came from there and had another wife. It is also very likely that it was another Henry Hess.
Henry Hess lived in Montgomery County, Virginia, in 1820, 1830 and 1840 per the census.
He died in 1849 having lived a long life of 79 years.
