    Notes 
    • If you are a descendant of this person, please contact me.

      One source said he was married about 4 times at sometimes was a bigamist.

      I found a Arthur LYSHER, b. 1 Jan 1882, Crane Twp., Pauldine Co., OH, Parents: Samuel LYSHER & Josephine MILLER. I do not know if there is a relationship here, but this may have been the same county that Henry was born in so perhaps Samuel is a brother to Henry.

      BIRTH: The marriage record for him and Katie McClelland show him born in IL. The birth records for Ella and Sherman show him born in OH. I think he was born in Ohio.

      BIRTH: Another geneologist showed him born in Baltimore, Ohio.

      BIRTH: Some record indicate birth would be about 1861 or 1864.

      DEATH: Another genelogist showed his death as 1936 and his age at the time of death as 73.

      DEATH: He died at his daughter, Ella M. Congdon's home located at 1510 Cronk Ave., Flint, Michigan.

    Notes 
    • Jackie Hebel sent for and received this information from the Archives of Cook County, Michigan. The divorced took place around Oct 1891 after she had filed 29 Nov 1890. After searching for Henry and placing various notices in the newspaper, the divorce was granted without Henry's appearance. She charged desertion and drunkenness. She said that they had lived in Indiana and Ohio and he had deserted her and Katie in Aug 1889. Her father had brought them a farm in Indiana which they lost and he spent the money on whiskey. When they were married, Henry worked in a bottle factory. He started drinking after four months of marriage. [6]
