Henry Washington Shembarger

Henry Washington Shembarger, son of Solomon and Elizabeth Shembarger, was born in Goshen, Ind., May 22, 1845.

Not long after the close of the Civil war, while "Uncle Hank", as he was familiarly called, was yet a single man, the Shembarger family migrated to Missouri and settled near Buffalo which place has been the site of their residence since.

On November 9, 1870, he was married to Mary Rakestraw. To them one child was born, Ira A. Shembarger. About the year 1872 he and his first wife were divorced. Later he returned to Goshen, Ind., where about the year 1884 he was again married to a Miss Ecklebarger. No children were born to this union. She preceded him in death about 26 years. His first wife preceded him in death about 2 years.

Near the beginning of the Civil war, he enlisted in the Union army as a private in Co. D, 12th Reg., Indiana Cavalry, serving 3 years and 6 months to the close of the war.

In his youth he united with the church of the Brethren (commonly called "Dunkard"). He was a good citizen and neighbor of the quiet, reserved type.

For the last quarter century he had spent his time alternately between this community and Goshen, Ind.

Uncle Hank was the last of eight children: Charles, who died in Indiana, Lydia Ann Smithpeter, Sarah Jane Welch-Humphrey, Kate, Israel, Samuel and Solomon.

He passed away quietly at the home of his son near Buffalo at 1:40 a. m., Tuesday, December 13, 1932, being 87 years, 6 months and 21 days of age.

He leaves his son, 12 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren, C. W. Smithpeter and Mrs. Lyman Criddle, nephew and niece, and many other relatives and friends.

Rev. V. R. Walker conducted funeral services at the Ike Shembarger home Wednesday and burial followed in Powell cemetery under direction of L. B. Jones.
