1905 History of Crawford County Kansas


Fred K. Henney, reporter on the staff of the Pittsburg Daily Headlight, is a thoroughly up-to-date young newspaper man, and has been engaged in reportorial work ever since his school days were over. In this pursuit he follows in the footsteps of his father, the late W. H. Henney, who for years was in the newspaper business in Girard and Pittsburg.

Fred K. Henney was born in Cambridge, Illinois, March 15, 1880. His parents brought him to Girard, Crawford county, Kansas, in 1886, and here he was reared and received his high school education. Since leaving school he has been connected with the Girard Daily Press, the Hutchinson Kansan, the Hutchinson News, the Pittsburg Daily Tribune, and for the past four years has been on the staff of the Pittsburg Headlight. He was married June 24, 1903, in Hutchinson, Kansas, to Miss Alice Heberlig.
