Henry "Harry" C. Cady was the son of George and Ann Eliza Frederick Cady. He and his parents moved first to Michigan and then to Nebraska. Harry first married Charlotte Wilcox, but the two separate in the early 1880's. Harry returned to New York where he met and married Cora Trowbridge in 1883. Cora had a son George who was about 7 years old at the time and he was adopted by Harry and took the last name of Cady.

Harry worked as a barber when he was in Nebraska, but when he returned to NY he obtained employment with the NY Central Railroad. He was working as an engineer in Buffalo when he was struck and killed by a train on December 6, 1899. His body was returned to Syracuse, the long-time home of his 2nd wife Cora, and he was buried in Oakwood Cemetery.

It is interesting to note that in 1895, one of Harry's sons from his first marriage came to Syracuse and reported Harry as a bigamist. At the time, Cora asked for and was granted an annulment from a judge, but later they appear to have reconciled and she was always listed as his widow.
