Bates (1) has Frederic H Hentz. Since (3) clearly has Frederick H Henry promoted to first sergeant of company G, and the only other first sergeants Bates lists in company G are J A Langerbartel and William Spangler, I am assuming that Bates' 'Hentz' is a mistake for 'Henry'.
He was born in October 1840 (10, 15; 8 (21 in 1861), 12 [73 in 1914], 14 [38 in 1880], 15 [59 in 1900], 16 [69 in 1910]). He was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (8, 14, 15, 16).

He married Kate [unknown family name] (12).
On 10 October 1864, he applied successfully for a pension (9, 13).
In 1880, he was living at 1858 Eleventh Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (14). He was living with his wife Kate E Henry, daughters Annie and Tillie, father-in-law David Griffenberg and his family, and a servant (14). He was a carpenter and builder (14).

[Although the order is dated 26 Dec 63, it is between orders dated 16 Feb 64 and 22 Feb 64, and the order number fits in the 1864 sequence, but not in the 1863 sequence. It was therefore probably issued in February 1864.]
