Death of Mrs. James Henry

Very much sorrow was felt by a wide circle of friends when the death was announced of Mrs. James Henry, who passed away at her home here on Thursday of last week.

She had been ill for several weeks with fever, which a few days before her death developed into typhoid.

The funeral took place on Saturday at 2 o'clock, Rev. Mr. Davey conducting the services. The bearers were Messrs. 
H. R. Smale, T. D. Duncombe, A. M. Tobin, John Martin, W. C. Lundy and C. Kitchen.

On Sunday, memorial services were held in the Methodist church of which Mrs. Henry was a faithful member.

Mrs. Henry's maiden name was Sarah Henderson and she came to Waterford from England about 35 years ago.

Henry Henderson, an uncle, and John, a cousin, reside at Norwich.

A husband, son and daughter are left to mourn her, and to them is extended the sympathy of the community.

Many beautiful flowers testified to the esteem in which Mrs. Henry was held, among them being an anchor from the Ladies' Aid of the Methodist church, of which she was a member.
