  • Notes 
    • Henry was the son of Fred W. and Maria Caroline Obenland Preiss. His parents were both born in Germany. Henry registered for the draft for WWI the same day his brother Albert did. (June 5, 1918.) At the time, Henry worked for A.C. Barclay of Elgin, Illinois. His draft card shows that he had gray eyes and black hair. Henry worked in the hardware store in Elgin. Quite possibly it was the A.C Barclay store mentioned on his draft card. He married Rosa Grimm on Oct. 5, 1930 in Elgin, Illinois. The couple had 7 children: Warren, born July 5, 1931; Virginia, born Oct. 27, 1933; Janet; Charlott, born May 9, 1939; Suzann; Cynthia; and Diane. All of Henry's children are alive as of Sept., 2008, with the exception of Warren. He passed away Dec. 7, 1978 and is buried in Morning Side Cemetery, Dubois, PA. Henry worked in a hardware store while his wife kept house for the family. His daughter Charlott said that he was a "laid back" kind of guy. Henry died in his home in Elgin, Illinois due to a cerebral thrombosis. He was on his way upstairs to bed when it happened and he fell down the stairs.
