Henry was living with his parents and siblings in Fulton, Schoharie County, NY in 1850. His father was a farmer. By 1860 at the age of 18 he was no longer living with his parents and his exact location has not been found.
After he returned from the Civil War, he married and began having a family. The young family can be found in the 1870 Census living in East Berne, where Henry was working as an apprentice painter. A decade later Henry, who was now a carpenter, and his family were still living in East Berne.
After Henry's death in 1886, his family continued to live in Berne. His widow Maria was recorded in the 1890 Veterans Census, which confirmed Henry's Civil War service.
Henry died on May 30, 1886 in Albany and was buried at the Henry Warner Burying Grounds in East Berne. His gravestone says "Henry Warner died May 30, 1886, aged 44 years Co. K, 7th N.Y.H.A." His stone is only one of three that was still standing at the cemetery.
