Henry Hummell was born in Anspach, Germany Aug 14, 1829. In1849, with his parents, he emigrated to this country, settling in Milwaukee, Wis; where he resided till May 12, 1856 when he was married to Mary Shoherncker. He learned the baker trade at which he worked nearly all his life. In 1864 he removed his family to Jeffersonville, Ind where he was engaged in government bakery. In 1869 he removed to Crawfordsville where he resided the greater part of the time since. Henry Hummell was first and greatest of all an honest man; true to his friends, kind and considerate to all. A man of more than ordinary intelligence, broad minded and of large information. No higher praise could be given him than to chisel upon his headstone this sentence: He tried to do his duty. The funeral will be held from the residence of Joseph Kepler, 115 W Pike St at 10 o'clock Monday. Interm at Oak Hill. Friends invited to attend. - kbz
