A biosketch [5] reports:

Henry H. Brenizer, a prominent farmer and stock raiser of Prairie Township, was born in Delaware County, Ohio, in 1837, and is a son of Jacob and Margaret (Griffith) Brenizer. The father was of Dutch ancestry, and born in Pennsylvania about 1792. He afterward went to Maryland, where he was married in 1821, and nine years later removed to Delaware County, Ohio, (now Morrow County), where he spent the remainder of his life. His death occurred in 1869. The mother was born in Maryland, in 1803, and died in 1882, a member of the Baptist Church.

Our subject received a common-school education while living at home, and in 1863 was married to Miss Frances, daughter of Merrick and Emeline Barr, a native of Zanesville, Ohio, by whom he has had six children, four living, viz.: Grant, Cicero, May and Avis. Mr. Brenizer came to Schuyler County immediately after his marriage, and purchased eighty acres of raw prairie land two miles east of Queen City, which he has since increased to 360 acres, 120 acres being situated just south of the town. The home farm is under a very high state of cultivation and improvement, the outbuildings being very fine. Mr. Brenizer is a self-made man, and his property is the natural result of frugality and industry. During the war he served a short time in the Missouri State Militia, and he is always interested in the general welfare and prosperity of the county. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity, a Republican, and cast his first presidential vote for Lincoln, in 1860.
