   Another name for Henry was Dr. Henry Herbert Healy.

  Research Notes:

Dr. Healy went by Herbert Healy or H. H. Healy, most commonly the latter. Although, his name appears as "Dr. Herbert H. Healy" in the 2003 obituary of his daughter Dorothy, his gravestone reads "Henry Herbert" and his birth record has Henry Herbert. The 1871 Canadian census, when he was an infant, has "Herbert Healy." A transcription of the 1930 U.S. census has "Henry K. Healy," but that is probably incorrect.

His wife called him "Herb."

His father was probably the "Henry Healy" identfied as one of the early settlers in Drayton, North Dakota, after the original 12 settlers had erected some cabins and begun to farm there. 5

  Birth Notes:

Birth record has father's name as H.W. Healy.

  Death Notes:

Handwritten list probably by Edith Poapst (Wallace) has d. 2 Sep 1935, Grand Forks.
