Henry G. Regier was born Sept. 21, 1861, near the Volga in Russia. His parents moved to Rudnerwiede where he received his education.

At the age of 20 he attended instruction class, was converted and on Pentecost Sunday was baptized by Elder Franz Goertzen, Gnadenfeld, and admitted to membership in the Rudnerweide congregation.

October 25, 1888, he was united in marriage with Katharina Loewen; who shared joys and sorrows with him these 56 years. This union was blessed with 13 children, four preceding him in death.

Feb. 3, 1899, the family sailed for America and settled in Harvey county. Here he joined the Hebron church, of which he remained a faithful member until his death.

He gradually became weaker and at midnight, August 7-8 he quietly departed this life at the age of 82 years, 10 months and 14 days.
