  • Notes 
    • When Henry was two years old, his parents moved from New York to Michigan. They had a farm 1 1/2 miles southwest of Howell, Michigan. They eventually built a large brick home that was a showplace until 1979 when it was burned by vandals.

      In 1870, the family moved to Cassville, Wisconsin, where they lived for several years. They then bought a farm near Mt. Ida., and Henry farmed there.

      Henry and Lucy were potent factors in the development and progress of their community. He taught music in Cassville.
