Henry Rapp Dies at His Home Saturday Evening

Henry Rapp, a resident of Galena for many years, passed away at his home on Wann street Saturday evening after being in ill health for several months.

Mr. Rapp was born in Galena Nov. 25, 1868, and has made his home in this vicinity ever since. He followed the occupation of a tailor for many years and was considered one of the best in that business. He lived for several years at a camp near Wickman's dam on the Mississippi during which time he, with his sons, followed the business of a commercial fisherman.

He was preceded in death by his wife, who passed away Jan. 16, 1937. He is survived by two daughters, Lucille, and Mrs. Mary Brown, of Sanish, N. D., and five sons, Ervin (Irvin), Edmund, Arthur, Charles and Andrew all at home. He is also survived by two sisters, Mrs. Mary Wickman, Galena, and Mrs. John Newkerchen, Aurora, Ill., and one brother, John, of Paducah, Ky.

The funeral will be held Tuesday afternoon with services at the Uehren & Furlong Funeral Chapel at 2:30. Rev. P. R. McMahan, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church, will officiate and interment will be made in Greenwood cemetery.
