Henry H. Treworgy Succumbs to Typhoid Pneumonia

Henry W. Treworgy died about 1 this morning at his home in Holyoke after a short illness with typhoid pneumonia. He had been for several years a well-known grocer, and, in company with Charles Ball, had erected the Ball & Treqorgy block at the corner of Dwight and High streets. A few days ago he sold his grocery business to the Mohican syndicate, and accepted the general managership of the Holyoke branch. He had applied himself very closely to business the past year or two, and was in poor health when the disease fastened itself upon him.
