Henry M. Fosythe Passes Away in Chicago.
__The funeral of the late Henry M. Forsythe was held yesterday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock from the First United Presbyterian church, the pastor, Rev. Paul officiating. Mr. Forsthye died in Chicago at the home of his daughter, Mrs. S. W. Brainerd, Friday morning, June 27, at 10:30 o'clock, after an extended illness. The body was brought to Cedar Rapids, the old home of the deceased, for interment.
__Henry M. Forsythe was born in Hickory, Penn., August 16, 1825. He was married to Miss Helen Anderson of Ohio in 1852. Immediately after his marriage, in 1853, he removed to Cedar Rapids, and the family resided here until a few months ago, when Mr. Forsythe removed to Chicago. With all that goes to make good citizenship possible the deceased was identified. During his residence in this city he was a leader among men who believed as he did, and was recognized as such by all who knew him. He was a solid, substantial charcter, fearless in any movement which he considered for the betterment of humanity. Mr. Forsythe was a man of strong convictions and a stern believer in the cause of temperance, which he advocated upon all occasions, even when popular feeling was strongly against the temperance party. His life was an active one, and ill health alone caused him to give up his favorite work. He was employed by the B., C. R. & N. from 1876 until October, 1901, when ill health compelled him to give up work. During his residence in Cedar Rapids Mr. Forsythe was prominently identified with the First Presbyterian church and was untiring in his efforts for its success. For several years he was a member of the city council and served his constituents in politics as he always had his friends in private life, faithfully and well.
