This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A nephew of Samuel Bell Waugh, theatre panoramist, Henry Waugh was a sketch artist, landscape and scenery painter.

He was in Indianapolis, Indiana when he was between the ages of 18 and 20 and was part of a theatrical troupe. During the winter of 1853 and 1854, he worked as an assistant to Jacob Cox on a 30-scene panorama, whose theme was temperance. While there, he also painted scenery, easel landscape paintings, and created banners.

To earn money for study in Europe, he worked as a circus clown, using the name of "Dilly Fay," and on tour with the circus, he was in New Orleans between 1858 and 1859 and did paintings and sketches of the Mississippi River.

He spent three years, 1859 to 1862,in Rome, Italy, and returning to America due to illness, he died of consumption. His work was exhibited in 1862 at the Pennsylvania Academy.

Connie Ganz, Researcher of the artist. She has found that contrary to some sources, Waugh spent only three years and not five in Italy, verified by his passport application and family diary. Also he did not die overseas as sometimes asserted but returned to America where he died on April 28, 1863.
