Casey, I have quite a bit on Henry, but it is contradictory so hope you can clarify. This is part of what I have: They were descendants of the Palatines who were shipped to Maryland and Pennsylvania from England about the middle of the 18th century. John Beighley and his brother Henry arrived in 1796 and Peter, George and Jacob came a year later, each of the 3 first named being a landowner in 1803. Jacob had 400 acres in Clay Township. John brought his family from Westmoreland County in 1798, and resided here until his death in 1836. - History of Butler County 1895

When Henry arrived in America, paid for by his brother Conrad's service to George Wiles, he also worked as a farmer at Boonsboro.

I do not believe he came over with Conrad, but arrived at the later date, although I have no proof. There is a lot of other stuff, if you are interested. Let's help each other get him in his right place. :>)
