      Passing of Preston's Oldest Manufacturer
      The Late Henry Heise Conducted Furniture Factory on Main Street

      In the passing of Henry Heise Preston loses its oldest pioneer manufacturer, whose death occurred on Wednesday afternoon. The late Henry Heise was born in Muehlhausen, Germany, nearly 75 years ago and with his parents came to Preston when 15 years of age. He learned the trade of cabinet maker and for a number of years conducted a furniture factory where the Mickus hardware store now stands and later he operated a sawmill at the rear end of the lot, finally building a very substantial mill on Hamilton street. In religion he ws a Lutheran and was independent in politics with Liberal learnings [sic]. He took unto himself as a partner in life Dorothea Stumpfle, who survives him, and to whom were born ten children - Mrs. George Kanmaeher, Preston; Miss Elizabeth, Medicine Hat; Henry, Hamilton; Miss Dora, Preston; Mrs. J. Mumford, Stratford; Mrs. C. C. Hahn, Kitchener; Miss Lottie, Edward G. and Miss Clara at home; Pte. William H., now in France; and a brother, Christopher Heise, in Galt. The funeral will take place from his late residence, Queen street on Saturday at 2: 30 p.m. Interment in Preston, cemetery.

      Galt Daily Reporter, Thurs. March 22, 1917

      _____________________________


      In the calling away of Henry Heise at his home on Wednesday at 3 pm, Preston looses one of its oldest citizens. Some time ago it was found necessary to amputate his leg owing to blood poisoning and this with his age proved too much for the late gentleman. He was born in Muhlhausen, Germany, on April 10th, 1842, being at the time of his death in his 75th year. Besides a sorrowing widow he is survived by the following sons and daughters: Mrs. Geo. Kanmacher, Mrs. John Mumford, Mrs. C.C. Hahn, Miss Elizabeth, Miss Dorothy, Miss Lottie, Miss Clara, and Henry, Edward and William. His only surviving brother, Christian, resides at Galt. The funeral will take place on Saturday afternoon at 2: 30pm from the family residence, Queen Street, to Preston Cemetery.
