John Henry was one of the many Fables captured and imprisoned by Mr. Revise and the Page Sisters at Golden Boughs Retirement Community. He managed to escape with Alice and Pecos Bill during the big breakout from the Golden Boughs. The group briefly accompanied Jack Horner, who entertained them with the story behind his identity as Jack Frost and how he knew the Snow Queen. After telling his tale, he quickly abandoned the group. What happened to him and the others is unknown, he most likely got recaptured and was with Raven's group at the diner. Or he's still on the run, looking for Fabletown.
