Henrik Jensen Lund was born circa 1818 in Aalborg, Jutland, Denmark to Jens Lund Pedersen (1790-1860) and Ane Magrethe Pedersdatter (1784-1836) . He married Anne Christine Anderson (1818-1848) circa 1843 in Aalborg, Jutland, Denmark.

In the fall of 1847 Henrik was drafted into the Danish army and sent to Schleswig, where an insurrection was threatening. In 1848 Schleswig and Holstein revolted and with the aid of Prussia and Germany waged war for three years. During this struggle, Denmark needed all her patriotic sons, and he served with distinction through the whole war, and did not return until his boy was seven years old. It was a beautiful day when the victorious army returned; and standing near a triumphal arch, having hold of his grandmother's hand, the boy watched the soldiers marching under it. At last his grandmother pointed out the smiling face of his father, marching with his musket on his shoulder. A few hours later he was folded in his father's arms. This was a happy day for the boy.

Shortly afterward Henrik moved away about thirty-five miles, and his son was left to live with his grandmother, who proved a tender, loving mother to him.
