  • Biography/Notes:
    Henry was the second son of Peter and Mary LaFalier to be allotted. After coming to Indian Territory when he was just a small boy, Henry LaFalier stayed near the family allotment lands the rest of his life. He married Ellie Webb in 1898, and they had two children, Ernest and Beulah. He and Ellie divorced in 1910, and Ernest and Beulah remained living with Henry. Both Ernest and Beulah remained near the original allotment area their entire lives, and continued the family tradition of farming. Henry's grandson Frank was killed in a flash flood after a spring tornado in 1954, and Henry was heartbroken. He passed away in his sleep just a week after Frank's funeral.
