s his daughter, Mrs. Laurens Burts, a
i few miles eait of ionea 'Path, some
t time during the night or the early
t morning hours of Thursday of last
week.- His lifeless form was found in
g bed where he had passed uwvay with
L, out any .previous signs of sickness. Al
t though his death came without warn
ing it was not unexpected to those
' who knew that the complications of
i old age -were rapidly claiming him.
t At the time of his death he was 81
3 years of age.
SThe funeral services were held in

Capt. Henderson spent practically'
his entire life at his home in the

pursuits of peace andi had a success
ful career as a farmer. He took a
- prominent part. (luring the dark days
' of lieconstruction and until the later
