p.3 Died Near Detroit - Capt. Chauncey J. Henderson, aged sixty-nine years, is dead at his home in Sumpter township. He was born at Oswego, N.Y., and had sailed the lakes since a mere boy, having been a captain since his seventeenth birthday and never lost a boat. The remains will be taken to Oswego, N.Y. for burial. He leaves a widow.

Capt. Henderson's last vessel was the schooner John T. Mott, of Oswego. After retiring from the latter schooner he went to Sumpter township, where he has since resided. He was a brother of Captain H. Henderson, of Cleveland, also well known as a sailor man on the Great Lakes, and a former resident of Oswego.
