Probably this James Henry:

"General Brock’s British and Canadian invasion force marched along the river road until reaching the
tan-yard of James Henry (1771-1812). Henry came to Detroit in the 1790’s as an agent for the contractor supplying the army garrison and constructed the tan-yard as a separate private investment. James Henry’s father, William Henry (1729-1786), was a gunsmith from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and delegate to Continental Congress." [Source]
