HENRY PRATT, Captain, was born in Ohio, and came to Delavan, Ill., in 1850. He owned a beautiful and productive farm near there, and was a prominent man in the county. He was supervisor for several years. At the organization of the 115th, he left his wife and two little boys to enter the army, and at the end of six months both children were dead. This calamity made him sad and melancholy, and a very severe sickness followed while he was at Richmond, Ky. His fondest hopes being blasted and his health remaining infirm, he tendered his resignation in the spring of 1863, and returned home. He never regained his former health, and after several years' residence in Kansas, was killed by a vicious bull.
