February 28, 1895 Chronicle – Odebolt
The many friends of Henry Waggoner, who lived three miles west of Odebolt, were grieved to hear of his death, which occurred about 11:45 on Sunday night. He was taken ill on the preceding Tuesday with pneumonia, and from the first his condition was serious. Mr. Waggoner was one of the kindest and best men we ever knew and we not believe he had an enemy. He was born in Perry County, Pa., Sept. 5, 1834, and resided there until 1873 when he moved to Cumberland County, Pa. He married Miss Ellen M. Murphy of Cumberland County Dec. 22, 1857. In 1881 Mr. and Mrs. Waggoner came west, locating in this county, where they have since resided. Mr. Waggoner was one of the Union’s defenders, serving in company F. 208th Pennsylvania Volunteers. He was a member of Col. Goodrich Post of this place. He leaves a wife; six sons and four daughters, to mourn the loss of a Loving husband and tender father. Funeral services will be held in the M.E. church today, in charge of the G. A. R. The friends will meet at the residence at 11 A.M.
