He served as a sergeant in that war; for his services in the French and Indian War, he received another land parcel. In 1790 his neighbors were John Rodes and William Austin, his brother. During that year there were nine in Henry’s family; there were his dwelling and four other buildings on his plantation. “In 1795 Henry Austin conveyed a parcel of land to Thomas Stribling, Samuel Wills, Joseph Hardesty, Bennis Brown, Daniel Maupin, John Gibson, George Bringham, William Oliver and Basil Guess, of Organe, for a church which was then called Austin’s Meeting House, and is no doubt the same as that now known as Bingham’s Church…” (Hist. of Albemarle Co., Va.)

He served as a Lieutenant under the command of General Nelson. Henry was one of the three thousand Virginia Militia who participated in the last war campaign at Yorktown. His will:...
