Prof. W.A. Henry Dies Suddenly

Prof. W.A. Henry passed away Friday evening, April 25th, 1919 from a sudden attack of heart disease. He was apparently as well as ever when last seen before going home but about 10:30 p.m. while Miss Maude Horn was passing his place she heard groaning and stepped to the window and asked the Professor if he was ill and he replied that he was very sick. Help was summoned as quickly as possible but before medical assistance could reach him he had expired.

Wm. A. Henry was born in Virginia, June 16, 1851 and died Friday evening, April 25th, 1919. He leaves three sisters to mourn his death. One sister, Miss Isabel Henry of Las Vegas, New Mexico, who arrived Wednesday, will accompany the body to Las Vegas, New Mexico for burial. Funeral services will be held at the Christian church tomorrow morning at 11 o’clock.

The Professor had conducted a studio of music in Enterprise during the past eight years and had a nice business and was well liked. His many friends and his numerous pupils will miss his genial personality.
