Obituary

George S. Henry, formerly of Waterbury, died of consumption in Kingston, North Carolina, at the home of his sister, Mrs. Dr. Miller, Feb. 19th. He was born in Waterbury July 21st, 1847; was son of the Hon. James M. Henry, and was the youngest of a family of eight children, four of whom are still living -- two brothers, Gen. W. W. Henry of this city, and John P. Henry of New York City, and two sisters, Mrs. Solomon Green of Richmond, and Dr. Miller of Kingston, N. C. His mother, Mrs. Matilda Tenney is still living in Waterbury.

In 1864 he enlisted in Company K., 17th Vermont Volunteers, and served until the end of the war. He has, since that time, been with his brother, John F. Henry, of New York, who only a few weeks before his death, sent him south for his health. He leaves a wife and one daughter.
