The Hinckley family lived on the point of Wolfe Island directly across the St. Lawrence river from Cape Vincent NY as early as 1820. Samuel Hinckley was granted a charter to operate a ferry there by King George IV in 1829. To this day, the ferry between those two places is owned and operated by descendants of the family. Although I don't have Henry in my database, he would fit date-wise as a grandson of great-grandson of Samuel through his son Coleman Hinckley and Coleman's son Dexter who m. Nancy Pritchard.
