Jane Boles was born in Osnabruck Center, Ont., February 17, 1854, and remained at home until January 1, 1872, when she was married to Alexander Henry and since then they have lived on farms in and near Massena until five years ago when they moved to the Springs. Mrs. Henry has been a great sufferer from chronic rheumatism, not having been able to take a step in the last five years, but she was never heard to complain.

Besides her husband she is survived by five sons and four daughters, John, Fred, Edwin, Sam and William, all of Massena; Mrs. George Orcutt, of Norfolk, Mrs. Richard Hartford, of Massena Center, Mrs. James Gilman, who resided at home and cared for her on mother, and Ida May Henry, who lived at home. She is also survived by five sisters and two brothers, Mrs. Margaret Richards, Mrs. Robert Cline, Mrs. Guy Grant, of Massena, Mrs. William Hessen, of North Stockholm, Mrs. Fred J. Smith, of South Royalton, Vt, Oliver Bole, at Woodstock, Vt., and Matthew Bole, of South Royalton.

All that loving hands and medical skill could do to alleviate her suffering was done but nothing seemed to give her permanent relief. Mrs. Henry leaves a large circle of friends who will regret to hear of her death.
