Henry Clay Warth, son of John A. Warth, was born on his father's farm, February 11, 1878. After attending the county schools, he desired further education and therefore, in 1896, came to Huntington to attend Marshall College, where he was graduated in 1900. A further course of study at Oberlin College, Ohio, brought him the degree of Bachelor of Arts in 1905, and that of Bachelor of Laws was conferred in 1907 by the University of Virginia. Removing to Huntington he first took as his law partner Herbert Fitzpatrick, with whom he opened an office, but in 1908 the agreement was dissolved, and Mr. Warth practiced law one year independently, after which he entered into a partnership with C. W. Lively, which continued until 1911, when Mr. Lively moved from Huntington to Oklahoma. On July 1, 1911, Mr. Warth joined forces with F. W. McCullough, under the firm name of
Warth & McCullough, which firm is still in existence, their offices being located in the Parsons Building, on Third avenue.

Such a progressive man as Mr. Warth is necessarily interested in
many different lines. He is president of the financial institution in West Huntington, known as the Central Banking Company, whose constantly increasing deposits now amount to one hundred thousand dollars. The many factories in that part of the city bring it large patronage. Mr. Warth is also president of the Mutual Land Company of Huntington. The Democratic party is favored by Mr. Warth's support, and in spite of the fact that the community is a Republican stronghold at the fall election of 1912, Mr. Warth was elected to the West Virginia state legislature from Cabell county. His religious denomination is the Congregational; he is a member of the Order of Elks, and of the legal fraternity, Delta Chi.

Henry Clay Warth, married, July 18, 1899, in Huntington, Ruth Parsons, a daughter of Vermont, who has lived ever since babyhood in West Virginia. Her father was one of Huntington's leading men, Chester F. Parsons, who died aged seventy-three, in 1895. He was a public-spirited man, a philanthropist, who made his fortune in wholesale and retail hardware. Mrs. Warth's mother, Mandana S. Parsons, died April 26, 1912, at the age of eighty-two, Henry King Warth, the only child of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Clay Warth, was born August 30, 1906.
