Henry Vanderburgh (1760–1812) was born in Troy, New York, in 1760. He was the son of William Vanderburgh and Margaret Gay.
At the age of sixteen, Vanderburgh was made a lieutenant in the 5th New York Regiment of the Continental Army in 1776. Later he was promoted to Captain of the 2nd New York Regiment. He served in the Continental Army until the end of the Revolutionary War. He was an original member of Society of the Cincinnati and his descendants continue to be members.
Vanderburgh's sister, Mary Vanderburgh, died in New York around 1807. Her husband, William Cook, arrived in Indiana sometime thereafter, and served at the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811.
In 1818, Vanderburgh County, Indiana, was named after Judge Vanderburgh.
