Dr Henry Morton Mixer
Birth: Apr., 1828
Ohio, USA
Death: Nov. 24, 1909

Dr. Henry M. Mixer was a surgeon in the Union Army during the Civil War. Died of Bowel inflamation.

Dr Henry Morton Mixer was born in 1828 in Ohio, the son of Belinda Simmons and Julius Usevio Mixer. He was a physician and surgeon who served in the Union Navy in the Civil War.
Dr Mixer married Mary Phelps, the sister of a fellow naval officer. When Mary's brother died in 1869, the Mixers opened their home to his widow Jennie and two daughters, Marcia and Mary Phelps. Marcia left to marry and Jennie moved with her, and but Mary continued to live with the Mixers after her marriage to Franz Briggs.

Dr Mixer was the founder and first commander of the local GAR (Grand Army of the Republic) in New Hampton, Iowa, which provided aid and assistance to Civil War veterans and their widows and children. He also continued his practice of medicine for many years. He was twice elected unanimously as mayor of New Hampton. After retiring, the Mixers moved to Neosho, Missouri, to be close to their niece Mary and her growing family.
