Biography of Patrick E. Henneberry

Patrick E. Henneberry, president of Henneberry & Company, packers and provisioners at Arkansas City, is a veteran in the packing industry. He had his first experience in that business at Chicago in 1872, before refrigeration of meat products and modern methods of transportation by refrigeration cars had been introduced. He had been in the industry through nearly every phase of development, and his experience and enterprise have brought the Arkansas City plant to a prosperous condition and one of the best managed of the smaller packing houses in the state.

Mr. Henneberry was born in Covington, Kentucky, July 15, 1859. He entered the packing business when only a boy, and was employed in places of increasing responsibility by packers in Chicago. Coming west to Iowa with John Morrell & Company, he spent many years with that firm as general superintendent. He came to Arkansas City, Kansas, in 1903, and became president of the firm of Henneberry & Company.

Mr. Henneberry resided with his family at 215 North B Street in Arkansas City. He is a member of the Catholic Church and of the Ponca City Council of the Knights of Columbus. On October 25, 1880, he married Miss Johanna Doody, who was born in Waterford, Ireland, in 1860. She was brought when a child by her parents to America. Mr. and Mrs. Henneberry are the parents of eight children: E. D. Henneberry, who is general salesman for Henneberry & Company and resided at 215 North B Street in Arkansas City, being a native of Chicago; Mary A., wife of Thomas McNally, president of the Pittsburg Boiler & Machine Company at Pittsburg, Kansas; Margaret, who is still with her parents; Anne, a trained nurse living in Chicago; Catherine, a student in the State Manual Training Normal School at Pittsburg, Kansas; John, who is with the Illinois Central Railroad at Chicago; Helen, a student in the Mount Carmel Academy at Wichita; Lucile, still in the public schools.
