|Death: ||Jul. 28, 1877|
Henry Criss was the son and oldest child of William and Nancy France Criss. His exact birthdate is uncertain--either 3 Sept. 1823, or 8 July 1824. He married Julieth Roberts on 13 July 1848, and they had 4 children: Nancy, Levi, Calvin and Allen. Henry joined the army at Terre Haute, Indiana, on 22 March 1865, at age 42, and went off to the Civil War. Henry met with a tragic accident. He was haying with his sons, slid down the side of a haystack, and came in contact with the handle of the hay fork, which went inside him and lacerated his intestines.
He died the next day at the age of 53 or 54.
