August 24, 1899, Thursday, The Waterloo Press
The sudden death of Mr. Henry H. Knott, which occurred
at 8 o'clock p.m. last Thursday was a shock to the entire community.
He was stricken with cholera morbus early in the morning and placed under
opiates to relieve his suffering. He slept some during the day, but
in the evening it was evident that his disease had changed for the worse and
resulted as above stated. Mr. Knott was one of the pioneer citizens
of Waterloo and always reliable as a man of utmost integrity. His life
was marked with some reverses in business affairs and in politics he never
received the reward of his ambition. He was a republican of the stalwart
kind, as in all other conduct in life, there was no mistaking where Henry
Knott would stand--a kind husband and father, and in every sense a worthy
citizen. His untimely death will be mourned by the entire community.
For many years he has been the owner of the Waterloo planing mills and attended
strictly to the business in hand.
