Henry was the largest of the brothers; six-foot-three and three hundred pounds. Henry was the last of the brothers to be born and was in high school when his brothers launched the Concert Company. Henry joined his brothers when he was eighteen years old. Henry first traveled ahead of the show, however this proved too much for him and he went on a drunken spree. He was made superintendent of the main entrance to the big top and eventually became the manager of the Adam Forepaugh & Sells Brothers show in 1905.
