Birth: unknown
Death: Jul. 28, 1908
Pennsylvania, USA

Although Arlington Cemetery records state the year of death as 1906, newspaper articles confirm the year as 1908.

According to bjwatson he died about 10 days after his father on July 28, 1908 while he was en route from Washington to Pittsburgh, presumably to attend his father's funeral at Arlington.

Contributor bjwatson sent the following obituary:
Major H.I. McCrea
Pittsburgh, July 28. While en route from Washington to this city on the Pennsylvania Railroad, Major H.I. McCrea, a former Paymaster in the Navy, today succumbed to heart failure. He was the only son of Captain Henry McCrea, who died recently in New York and was a cousin of President McCrea of the Pennsylvania Railroad.
