Henry Senhen is Claimed By Death
Had Resided in Ida County Almost 40 Years, Survived by Five Children
Unexpected sorrow has gone this week to an estimable family in Ida Grove by the death of Henry Senhen, which occurred Sunday afternoon, June 15, a few minutes before five o’clock. Mr. Senhen had been a sufferer from kidney trouble for several weeks and had gone to the hospital at Iowa City for treatment. An operation was performed June 6 and he seemed to be making a favorable recovery, when complications set in that caused his death. Henry Senhen was born March 29, 1870 in the province of Hesse, Germany, and at the age of sixteen left the old home and came to America to make his way. He settled first at Dixon, Ill., where he remained five years and then came to Ida County almost 40 years ago. He married Miss Albertina Sass, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. August Sass, at Denison, Iowa, September 16, 1892 and for a few years they lived on a farm in Crawford County, later coming to this county, and taking a farm in Silver Creek Township. Seven years ago they came to Ida Grove to reside. Six children were born to this union, five of whom survive. They are: August Senhen, Ida Grove; Louie Senhen, Ida Grove; Tillie Stryker, Ida Grove; Cecelia Hazzard, Austin, Ind.; Hans Senhen, Ida Grove. One child died in infancy. There are five grandchildren. At an early age, Mr. Senhen was confirmed in the Lutheran Church in Germany and attended that denomination after his arrival here. He was a man of many fine qualities, industrious and hard working, a splendid husband and a devoted father. The funeral services were held at the late home on First Street, Wednesday afternoon at 2 o’clock, in charge of Rev. Raymond Jinkerson. He was laid in Ida Grove Cemetery. All his children and relatives were present except two sisters-in-law who live in Minnesota.
