DEATH OF HENRY KING: Another old resident and prominent citizen of Bellows Falls passed away Wednesday about 8 o'clock. Mr. King had been in very poor health for several years, and for many weary months was a great and patient sufferer. While his death was not unexpected, it was sudden, the cause being the old difficulty with the heart. He had been off his bed but little since last Sunday afternoon.
Henry F. King was born in Hartford, Connecticut, Sept. 8, 1840, and moved to Bellows Falls in 1870. He was one of the original founders of the Vermont Machine company, and was the general superintendent of the company until failing health compelled his retirement from active business in 1886.
He was twice married; to Lucy L. Phelps, who died in 1873, and in 1875 to Lizzie S. Arms, with two children, Miss. Gertrude A., a and Henry Otis King survive him.
In 1861 he enlisted in Co. D. 22d Regiment Connecticut Volunteers, but after a service of nine months for disability.
The surviving widow was the daughter of the late Otis B. Arms, of the firm of O. B. and A. Arms, predecessors of L. G. and C. E. Howard of the hardware business, and builder and owner of the Union and Arms blocks on the square.
Mr. King was an ostentatious, hard working, upright, conscientious business man, and always enjoyed the confidence and respect of the community. Though never prominent in public affairs, he was a public spirited citizen, and took a keen interest in all that pertained to the general good and advancement. It is such men as he, found in the rank and file, who are the support of the particular communities in which they happen to live, and add lustre to American Citizenship.
The funeral will be held this afternoon at 2 o'clock, with interment in the Episcopal cemetery, Rev. J. Ellsworth Fullerton officiating.
