Oct 26, 1911
The death of Ruth M. Henry, elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Henry, which occurred at Enid Wednesday morning at 4:30 o'clock, October 25, caused much sadness and regret in Hennessey where the little girl was so well known. She had been ill just two weeks of typhoid fever, and although she was very low at all times and several physicians had her case in consultation, she was thought to be a little better up until a short half hour before death came.
Ruth Henry was born at Lindborg[sic], Kansas, but had spent the greater part of her life in Hennessey, where she had many warm friends, who are grieved that the life of this little girl should close at so early an age. She was of a quiet, loving disposition, kind and dutiful, and the hearts of her loved ones will ever hold her memory precious and dear. Her age was thirteen years, eight months and two days.
The body was brought to Hennessey this forenoon on the 11:30 train.
Funeral services will be held this afternoon at 2:30 at the M. E. church. Rev. N. Paul Barton will have charge of the services.
The remains will be interred in the Hennessey cemetery.
