Addie's obituary was published in a local newspaper, as follows:2

Mrs. C.A. Henshaw

The neighbors and friends of Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Henshaw were greatly surprised and grieved Tuesday morning to hear of the sudden death of the latter at her home four miles west of Whitehall.  She had been troubled with headache the past few days and had taken headache powders for relief.  

The reflection from the fire in the stove on the mirror startled Mr. Henshaw in the night, and thinking the house was on fire, gave the alarm and springing out of bed fell to the floor.  This alarm startled Mrs. Henshaw also and she fell in a faint, but apparently recovered from the effect.  Her head still ached at getting up time and she took another powder, conversed and even laughed at some pleasantry.  In a few minutes she became worse, her tongue paralyzed and she passed away at about eight o'clock, twenty minutes after the arrival of a physician who did all he could to restore her, but to no avail.  

Addie J. Seely was born Sept. 17, 1860, daughter of Judge and Mrs. A. S. Seely.  A husband, three small children and a number of brothers and sisters survive.  

She was a kind and good woman, a tender, loving wife and mother, and had almost, if not all acquaintances as friends.  It is sad to see one cut down so suddenly in the prime of life, depriving little ones of the love and care of a mother.  This is one of the mysteries of life we cannot fully understand.  It does not accord with our desires or hopes.  Our hearts go out in sympathy to the afflicted ones, who suffer as we have suffered.  We cannot comfort them.  They must turn to the giver of life and all good and perfect gifts for help.  Mr. Henshaw and little children certainly have the sympathy of us all in their great loss and sore affliction.  

The funeral conducted by Rev. A. N. Simmons took place from the home at 10 a.m. Thursday.  The Duncan Sisters were present and sang a number of selections.  The remains, followed by a long funeral procession, were conveyed to the Whitehall cemetery and laid at rest.

He then married Arla A. Albert, Sep 28 1907.2,4,13  Arla, daughter of T. J. Albert, was born 1883, Illinois.4,12,13  

In 1906 Creighton was living west of White Hall, Greene County, Illinois.14  

Creighton and family were shown in the 1910 census (May 12 1910), Patterson Township, Greene County, Illinois:4

Henshaw, Creighton A., head-of-household, age 50, born in Missouri; father born in West Virginia; mother born in Missouri; second marriage, married 3 years; occupation: farmer, general farm; owned farm (free).
Henshaw, Arla A., wife, age 27, born in Illinois; parents born in Illinois; first marriage, married 3 years.
Henshaw, Heleanor, daughter, age 15, born in Illinois; [..father's birthplace unclear..]; mother born in Illinois; attended school.

Creighton was a teacher, town Supervisor, and County Clerk.2  

Creighton Anderson Henshaw died May 29 1916, west of White Hall, Greene County, Illinois; buried Pine Tree Cemetery, near Patterson, Greene County, Illinois.2,5,10,15  

Creighton's obituary was published in a local newspaper, as follows:2

C. A. HENSHAW DEAD

Popular Resident of Greene County Succumbs to Protracted Illness at His Home, Four Miles West of White Hall.  

Creighton A. Henshaw, a lifelong resident of the county, one of the popular and best known residents, departed this life on the 29th day of May, 1916, at his home, four miles west of White Hall, aged 56 years, 11 months and 11 days.  He had been in failing health for more than three years.  

Surviving him are his widow, Arla A., and the following children: Juanita, wife of Ned Prindle, of Georgetown, Minnesota; Hugh L., of Wichita Falls, Texas, and Eleanor Winona, at home.  Judge Thomas Henshaw, of Carrollton, is a brother, and Virginia Henshaw, of Wilmington, is a sister.  

Mr. Henshaw and J. Addie Seely, daughter of Judge Anthony S. Seely, were married on the 24th day of June, 1886.  She departed this life on January 1st, 1901, leaving the above named children.  

On September 28th, 1907, he and Arla A. Albert, daughter of T. J. Albert, were married.  

Mr. Henshaw was the sixth child of Hugh L. and Fannie Patterson Henshaw, and was born on the 18th day of June, 1859, in St. Louis county, Missouri.  

He came with his mother, brothers and sisters to the village of Wilmington in this county in September, 1867, and lived in this county the remainder of his life, with the exception of about two years, when he attended school in Winchester, this state.  

He successfully taught school in this county for eleven years.  For six years he served as supervisor of the town of Patterson, serving in this capacity at the time the court house was built.  For two years he was clerk of the board of review, and was assessor of the town of Patterson and deptuy [sic] circuit clerk at the time of his death.  He retained an interest in education, and served as member and clerk of the board of school directors of his district.  

For more than eighteen years he has been a Modern Woodman.  He was also a farmer and loyal democrat.  

About three years ago his health failed, and at times he was a great sufferer, but being of a jovial and cheerful disposition, he bore his affliction with great fortitude, continuing at his work until a week prior to his death.  

Funeral services were held on Thursday, June 1st, 1916, at 1:30 o'clock p.m., at the church at Wilmington.  The funeral address was delivered by Hon. C. J. Doyle of Springfield, a close and long-time friend of the deceased.  There was a very large attendance, there being friends present from all sections of the county and a large number from White Hall.  The interment was in Lone Pine Tree cemetery.
