Many Years a Member of Both the Methodist Church, and the Masonic Lodge.

Funeral at Home, Burial at Lakeside.

Henry Lock, well known Lake Odessa resident, passed away at his home here shortly after 11 o'clock
Tuesday afternoon. He had been in failing health from the infirmities of old age for several years,
and about fifteen or sixteen months ago he suffered a stroke of paralysis from which he never fully
recovered. He had been confined to his home practically all winter.

The funeral was held from the late home this afternoon, the Rev. Leon W. Manning pastor of Central
Methodist church, officiating. Interment was made in lakeside cemetery with the burial services
conducted by the local Masonic lodge, Gottlieh Kussmaul, being in charge.

Mr. Lock was born on October 13, 1860, at Redfield, N.Y. He came west to Chicago in 1882 and in 1887
was married there to Miss Mina Grant who died in April of 1917. He was employed at the federal
subtreasury in Chicago where he became acquainted with Mrs. Cora E. Weiss of Washington D. C., who
also was employed at the subtreasury, and they were married on February 1, 1919.

Another one of the federal employees there was Oliver Belcher, son of A. L. Belcher, well known Lake
Odessa Civil War veteran. Through the former, Mr. Lock learned of this village with the result he
came here in July, 1921, and purchased the Charles E. Tew Sr. residence property on south Fourth avenue.
The next year he and Mrs. Lock came here to make this their future home.

Mr. Lock had been a member of the Methodist church practically all of his life and when he came here
transferred his membership from the Paulina St. M. E. church in Chicago to the local church. He had
been a member of the F and A. M. for 48 years and likewise had his membership transferred to the Lake
Odessa lodge, which presented him a life membership certificate about four years ago.

He had been much interested in civic and recreational affairs, especially tennis, boating, and fishing,
until failing health forbade. Besides the widow he is survived by one sister Mrs. H. E. Richardson at
East Syracuse, N.Y., and two brothers, Frank Lock and Charles Lock at Rome, N.Y.
