Fales, Capt. Henry M., Wheatfield, was born on Grand Island and was educated by a private tutor and at Deveaux College, from which he was gradnated in 1881. He came to North Tonawanda in 1885 as secretary of the Tonawanda Gas Light Company. This position he resigned to become manager of the City Water Works Company and secretary of the Standard Gas Company, and resigned this position when the water works were sold to the town. He has since that time become prominent as a contractor, but he has become particularly distinguishable because of his organizing the 25th Separate Company, N. G. N. Y., which was mustered in May 25, 1891, and of which he has been captain since November 28, 1892. He was first lieutenant of the company previous to his election to the captaincy. In May, 1893, Capt. Fales married Sarah C. Smith daughter of Hon. H. P. Smith, and they have three sons: H. Marshall, jr., Eugene and Clarke.
