Elkader Register, Thur., 28 Sept. 1905.

Henry Lyman Tyler.

At his mother's residence in Elkader on Thursday afternoon, Sept. 21st, 1905, about 3:30 o'clock, the spirit of Henry L. Tyler passed away to the great beyond.

For the past three years Henry has held a responsible position in the office of the Superintendent of the C.B. & Q. railway at LaCrosse, Wis., and on Aug. 7th, not having felt well for some time, he came home for a vacation. He continued in poor health and at last came down with typhoid fever, which has resulted in his death.

Henry Lyman Tyler was born at Elkader, March 9th, 1880, the only son of Lyman and Delila Tyler. He graduated from our High School in June, 1897, and was also a graduate of both the commercial and short hand departments of the Wisconsin Business University at LaCrosse. On Jan. 8th, 1902, he was united in marriage with Helena anna Dunker, at Sherburne, Minn. To them was born one little daughter, Ferol Iona. Besides his wife and daughter he is survived by his mother and sister. His father preceded him in death a little over one year ago.

The above is a brief sketch of a bright young life which has budded and blossomed and gone out from our midst. He had his feet well planted on the ladder which led to position and prosperity, as is shown by the commends he received from those in authority above him. But alas, the mysterious ways of Providence cuts off all this and leaves loved ones to mourn.

The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at the Congregational church, which was filled with sympathizing friends of the bereaved family and the Alumni of the High School.

Prof. J. E. Webb, who was in charge of the Elkader school during the school days of the deceased, in an address, spoke as follows regarding what he liked in Henry Tyler.

(Note: There followed more than a newspaper column of accolades left un-transcribed here.)

Rev. G. W. Baxter conducted the usual religious service, after which the remains were laid away in the family lot in the Elkader cemetery.

Those in attendance at the funeral from out of town were Mrs. Magaretha Dunker, Ben Dunker and Emil Dunker, of Sherburne, Minn.; Wm J. Dunker and Mrs. Louis Mueller, of Davenport, Ia.; Herman Dunker, of St. Paul, Minn.; C. J. Ferguson, W. A. Howard, and H. O. Park, of LaCrosse, Wis.; E. C. Munger and Mrs. Belle Hendershot, Thorpe, Ia.; Mr. and Mrs. Sherman Hendershot, Strawberry Point; Mr. and Mrs. George E. Troupe, Edgewood; Mr. and Mrs. Henry Wilkins, Graf, Ia.

( A card of thanks followed, signed by: Mrs. Lyman Tyler, Mrs. Henry L. Tyler, Miss Maud I. Tyler.)
