Henry H. Bushey
Wheaton Monitor (KS)
Henry H. Bushey, Sr. was born on Sept. 22,1837 in Addison, Vt., and died Sept. 8, 1899, being nearly 62 years of age.
In 1855 he was married to Miss Louise Senate and to them were born thirteen children - eight girls and five boys - of whom eleven are yet living.
When the Civil War broke out, he was one of the first to offer to go to the front, enlisting in the 2nd Vermont. He served principally under Grant, and was twice wounded. After the war, he moved to Massachusetts, where he remained until 1884, since which time he has lived in St. Joseph, Mo., until he came to Wheaton about two weeks ago to visit his son, Henry, and regain his health. But lagrippe, from which he suffered last winter, had left his system in such a condition that recovery was impossible, and he passed away last Friday morning.
His funeral services were conducted by Father Michel, at the Irish Creek church, and the body was laid to rest in the Irish Creek cemetery, Saturday.
The whole community sympathizes with his bereaved relatives.
