Friday, January 26, 1912

Harrodsburg, Kentucky

Mr. Henry Junius died at his home in this city on Sunday night after an illness of some months.  Mr. Junius was a native of Amsterdam, Holland, and came of a race of distinguished people, his father being an Episcopal clergyman, and when the son was quite a lad the father came to this country and was a Professor of Languages in the college at St. Paul, Minnesota.  Among the family were men distinguished in their calling as ministers and teachers, and the deceased had one uncle who was physician to the king of Holland.  Mr. Junius came to Harrodsburg in 1855, when quite a young man, and afterwards engaged in the hardware and tin business in which he was successful, but for the last several years he has traveled in the south as representative of James McDonald & Sons of Cincinnati.  At the outbreak of the Civil War he joined Morgan’s command and was captured and imprisoned at Camp Douglas for many months.  After the war he married Miss Sue Bell, who was a sister of the late Colonel T. C. Bell, who, with three daughters survive him.  They are Mrs. T. S. Marimon, of Nicholasville; Mrs. Jesse Litsey, of this county; and Mrs. A. T. Herd, of New York City.  Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at the Baptist Church, of which the deceased had long been a member, conducted by the pastor, Rev. R. E. Bailey, Dr. W. P. Harvey, a former pastor of the church, also, in a few well chosen remarks paid a high tribute to the deceased.  The interment took place in Spring Hill Cemetery.
