HENRY C. O'HARA September 20, 1873, Henry O'Hara arrived in Reno County and located a homestead claim in the N.W. 1/4. S 24 Twp 26 Range 7. He built a dugout in which he lived for two years, then built a frame house. He broke sod, and in the spring of 1874 planted thirty acres of corn, which the grasshoppers destroyed. That fall he planted sixty acres of wheat and the grasshoppers ate the seed wheat in the ground. He lived here for seven years; and in the meantime, purchased the S 1/2, S 16, Twp. 24, R 7. He moved in the spring of 1880, building a good house of seven rooms. The railroad came through, so he sold 120 acres of his land for the town-site of Partridge; then he engaged in the real estate and insur­ance business. Ten children were born to Mr. and Mrs. O'Hara. He con­tributed much to the progress and up-building of Partridge. He was one of the organizers and he and his wife were charter members of the Congreg­ational Church in 1873. He helped build the first elevator and creamery.
