was a hard working man, honest and upright in all his dealings. He appreciated the friendship of the many who were his friends.

Jack Brode's note:
Henry was a son of Frederick and Elizabeth Brode. The name Orrilla Knapp is a surprise. "Orrilla" appears to be a simple typo -- she's always been known as Aurilla. The surname Knapp is a total mystery. See the obituary for Aurilla Brode. Henry and Aurilla were married in Ohio, and lived there in Portage County for several years before moving to Angola, sometime before
1870. I haven't located the marriage records yet, but it looks like I need to.
