Obituary

James G. Henry of Royalton, died recently of paralysis, from which he had been suffering for some time.

Mr. Henry was the son of Germain Henry of Woodstock, long a hotel keeper there, and provost marshal for the second district during the late war.

He entered the University of Vermont in 1852, leaving at the end of his junior year. He afterwards studied law and was a partner of H. C. Denison, of Royalton.

When the Sixteenth Regiment was raised he was appointed Quartermaster, and for some time was acting Quartermaster of the second brigade.
