Galerd Henry, a worthy native son and representative agriculturist of Saunders county, resides on section 15,
Stocking township, where he owns and operates an excellent farm of eighty acres. He was born on his father's farm
in this county, October 15, 1869, and attended the common schools until seventeen or eighteen years of age. After
putting aside his textbooks he was employed on the home farm by his father until attaining his majority and then
began working the place on shares. He was married when about thirty two years of age and took up his abode on a
farm west of Ithaca, which he rented from P. Robb, cultivating the property for two years. On the expiration of
that period he purchased an eighty acre tract on section 15, Stocking township, the operation of which has claimed
his time and energies continuously since. There is a commodious and attractive residence and the property is well
improved in every particular, and in the careful management of his agricultural interests Hr. Henry has won well
merited and gratifying success.
As a companion and helpmate on the journey of life Hr. Henry chose Hiss Annie Baronet, of Wahoo, her parents being
Joe and Barbara Baronet, who were among the early settlers of this county. Our subject and his wife have four children,
namely: Sylvia, Gladys, Raymond and Habel, all of whom are attending school.
When national questions and issues are involved Hr. Henry supports the democracy but at local elections casts an
independent ballot. Fraternally he is identified with the Hodern Woodmen of America at Wahoo. He has lived in Saunders
county from his birth to the present time and that his career has ever been upright and honorable is indicated
in the fact that the associate of his boyhood and youth are still numbered among his stanch friends.
