Henry Weatherwax was born in Jackson, Michigan, January 18, 1846, the son of Henry and Christiana Weatherwax, natives of New York and descendants from German ancestors.
Mr. Weatherwax was a wealthy and influential citizen of this place, and one of the early settlers in this country, his people being the first white family to settle south of Chewelah.
He was a veteran of the Civil war, being enlisted in Company G, 129th Illinois, and participating in Sherman's famous march to the sea, being mustered out in 1865 at Louisville, Kentucky.

After various frontier residences and locations in Kansas, Nebraska and Wyoming, he came to the state of Washington in 1882, moving at once to this location. He remained here up to the time of his death, serving the county in 1885 as county commissioner, and since in various official capacities. Mr. Weatherwax was highly respected by all the citizens of this community, and his loss is sincerely mourned by all his friends. Interment took place in the Chewelah cemetery last Thursday. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Anna Weatherwax and Mrs Ed. Wayland, Frank Weatherwax and Lou Weatherwax, the children.

Henry Bellinger Weatherwax died 4 September, 1912 at Valley, Stevens Co., WA.
