Birth: Dec. 6, 1866
Dayton
Webster County
Iowa, USA
Death: Oct. 7, 1929
Kansas City
Wyandotte County

Harry was the oldest of nine children. He live in or around Dayton for nearly two-thirds of his life. He married Elsie Meanor on July 3rd, 1889. Durring the eight years of their marrage before Elsie's death they had six children, Flossie, Dorsey, Georgia, Nellie, Bessie, and Percy.

When Elsie died leaving Harry with six small children, Harry sent Flossie and Dorsey to live with family as they were school age. He adopted out Nellie to a couple in which the man is reported to have had a drinking problem. Harry's father retreved Nellie and took her to Pennsylvaina to live with Elsie's mother until her death. Bessie was adopted by her mother's best friend who was unable to have children of her own. Percy was adopted by the Wertz family.

Though he gave full adoptions for each of the children, Harry stayed in contact with each of them through out his life. They had regular family gatherings in which all of the children attended.

In early 1902 Harry remarried to Alice Carie Hull. They had three children and adopted a fourth child, Marvel, Harry, Delmar, and Theodore. In addition Harry's three oldest children lived with them as well.

Until about 1900, Harry worked on the railroad as an Engineer. His diebetis took one leg about that time, and he became an insurance salesman right up until his death.

He lost his second leg to diabetis in about 1926. He died of angina pecteris (blood clots causing heart attack) brought about by his diabetis.

It is also reported that he had two farms. One in Iowa, and one in Kansas.

He is much loved, and greatly missed.
