Former Madisonian Dies in Indianapolis This Morning.

Word was received in Madison today of the death of Henry G. Walter, formerly of this city, which occurred at 3 o'clock this morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J . S. Williams, in Indianapolis. Mr. Walter had been in failing health for several months but it was only during the last month that he was confined to his bed, so that his death comes as a shock to his many friends in this city.

Mr. Walter was born in Wilkesbarre, Pa., on August 12, 1849, but he was reared and spent the greater part of his life in Madison and for many years he was engaged in the feed business in this city. During later years he lived mostly in Indianapolis but he always had a warm place in his heart for his old home and friends. In 1875 Mr. Walter married Miss Mary Johann, also of Madison, but she passed away seventeen years ago. Six of Mr. Walter's children survive him as follows: John Walter, Louisville; George Walter, Kansas City; Mrs. A. E. Rouse, Mrs. J . S. Williams, Mrs. L. C. Tripp and Miss Helen Louise Walter, all of Indianapolis. He also leaves one sister, Mrs. Charles Dietz, of Louisville. Funeral services will be held at 12 o'clock Sunday noon in this city in the Lutheran church, of which Mr. Walter was a life-long member and where for many years he sang in the choir. The interment will be in be in Springdale cemetery. The decedent was a member of the Odd Fellow and Red Men lodges of Madison and he had many friends here who will regret to learn of his death. Mr. Walter's life might be summed up in a few words. Those who knew him were always glad and proud to call him friend. Mr. John Walter, the decedent's son, arrived on the noon train today to make arrangements for the funeral Sunday. He returned to Indianapolis on the afternoon train.

For my paternal great-grandfather... Snapdragons were a flower that your daughter Helen (my grandmother) grew in her garden.
