The only source I have onhand that might be of help is my marriage index. Under Henry, it has:

Stephen march 31, 1858 to Catharine Burnett
Stephen march 7, 1850 to Delilah Burnett
Anna Dec 30, 1847 to Jeremiah Nofzger
Joseph June 14, 1849 to Mary Magdalena Hess
Joseph Oct 2, 1857 to Margaret Ann Wiseman
Elisha Dec 8, 1822 to Mary Robinson
John July 1, 1828 to Anna Massiman
Mary A Jan 29, 1857 to George First
Eliza Feb 21, 1856 to Jacob Kline

Just from this, you obviously can't tell if any of these are the people you're looking for, but it's a place to start. If you can travel to look up the marriage records (or hire someone to do it) you may get lucky - sometimes there's a consent record with a little more info to go on.

I see that there is an index listing for a will for a Stephen Henry in the 1850's, but it doesn't say which Stephen. That would be an excellent source if it is your Stephen...I also see an obit was published in the Sept 5, 1850 Wayne County Democrat. That might not have much, they often didn't that long ago, unless the person had some notariety, but you never know.
