Biography for Henry R. Heath
Proprietor of the Des Moines Oat Meal Mills, is a native of Tyringham, Berkshire County, Massachusetts, and was born on the 6th day of April, 1830. He is of Welsh-English ancestry, his progenitors emigrating to America before the revolution. In early life he attended the common shcools, and at the age of fourteen years he engaged at labor at different manufactories, working with machinery until twenty-five years of age, his specialty being sash, blind and door making. In the spring of 1856 he removed to Des Moines. He first engaged at carpenter and joiner work. After a journey to Pick's Peak, Colorado, he returned in the fall of 1861, and after following his chosen occupation until 1868, he commenced business on his own account. He established a business that has proved of much value to Des Moines as one of the branches of manufacturing industries that will make of the capital city the great central metropolis of the West. In 1879 he engaged in his present business, in which he has been favored with satisfactory results. His mills have a capacity of from one hundred to one hundred and fifty barrels per day, which finds a ready sale in the larger Eastern cities and European markets. He married Miss Edith A. Underwood in 1850. She is a native of Massachusetts. They have a family of three children: Charles H., Albert C. and Jim.
