William Edward Henry, oldest son of Clarence W. and Ollie Henry, was born near Marshalltown, Iowa, on Sept. 8, 1920, and died at the home of his parents near Beaman on Tuesday morning, May 4, 1926, aged 5 years, 7 months and 26 days.
He had entered school at the beginning of the present school year and took deep interest in his studies and enjoyment in his associations with his classmates. His promising future was suddenly blighted by a severe illness which finally caused his death, and God took him away to join the multitude of children that add their laughter to the music of heaven.
Besides his parents and little brother, Hubert, he is survived by his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Nicely of Beaman, and Mr. Edward Henry of Bill, Wyo., and a great-grandmother, Mrs. N. S. Reisinger of Marshalltown; three uncles, Raymond Henry, Bill, Wyo., Alfred Henry of Cedar Rapids, and Eugene Nicely of Beaman; also two aunts, Mrs. Walter Sanders, of Conrad, and Mrs. C. D. Wilson of Bangor, Iowa, besides cousins and other relatives.
Funeral services were held from the Methodist church at Beaman on Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the Rev. J. J. Snyder officiating. The hymns were sung by Mrs. Ross Oglesby, Mrs. Geo. Brown, Ben Rowe and Harry Wilson. Four boys from the school, Floyd Ashton, Russell Simms, Harm Hertema and Paul Sanderson acted as pallbearers.
