According to the 1900 Census, Henry was born in November of 1871.
The census taken on 18 June 1880 shows that he attended school during the census year. There is a mark beside his name in the column titled: “Maimed, Crippled, Bedridden, or otherwise disabled.”
According to the 1910 Census, Henry was still living at home and helping with the farm work, as also was Hugo & Xavier.
His father died on June 2, 1915, and in his will, he had appointed Hugo as conservator for Henry.
After his father died, his brothers took turns keeping him. I remember Mom saying that she kept him for a while. She said that he hallucinated. Once he pointed to the ceiling and said: “That’s where the butter churn went up. PPsshhtt!”
He was admitted to the State Hospital in Anna, IL, in 1916, where he lived for five years until his death.
He died on Sept 18, 1921 of a cerebral hemorrhage. Contributory cause was epilepsy.
It was Ed’s family plot in St. George’s Cemetery in New Baden that became his final resting place.
