Died, at his home in Mount Vernon, Ohio, First month 22d, 1899, Leland De Forest Henshaw, in the 30th year of his age.  He was the son of Nathan and Lydia M. Henshaw, and was a member of Lawrence Monthly Meeting, Kansas.  He was a graduate of Kansas State University, as a civil engineer, in 1890.  He immediately received a call to a position with the Bridge Company, of Massillon, Ohio, since which time he has filled responsible positions with scarce a vacation.  At the time of his death he was chief engineer of the Mt. Vernon Bridge Company.  

Giving the comforting assurance that he was 'ready to go,' he peacefully fell asleep, leaving a wife and two little sons, a father, mother and brother, to mourn his loss.
