Hoopeston Daily Chronicle, Jan 24, 1901- Illinois

Obituary - Henry C Henning was born at Meitzberg, Germany, June 15, 1862, and died Jan 22, 1901. He came to this county from Germany with his parents in 1869, when he was but seven years of age. Soon after he attained his majority he was employed as a commercial salesman for a large wholesale grocery establishment in Chicago, a business he continued to follow until about a year ago, when his rapidly failing health forced him to give up his work. On November 28, 1894, at Milwaukee, Wisconsin, he was united in marriage with Miss Ada Torbet. They removed from Chicago to this city three years ago, and have lived here ever since. The deceased had been sick since last spring with that dread destroyer, consumption. Everything that could be done was done to arrest the progress of the disease, but all to no avail, and at 11 o'clock a.m. Tuesday he sank calmly and peacefully into that sleep that knows no awakening. Besides his wife, his father and two sisters living in Rankin, survive him.

Funeral services will be held at the Baptist Church at 2 o'clock this afternoon, Rev. A.A. Benfield, assisted by Revs. S.W. Thornton and E.J. Regennas officiation, followed by interment at Floral Hill. Friends of the family invited to be present.
