Henry Clay Died Yesterday After a Long Sickness
He Was For Many Years Connected With the Red Bank Standard, and Was One of the Founders of the Red Bank Register
Henry Clay died yesterday at his home on Maple avenue after a long sickness. He had been an invalid since the summer of 1884, and during the past seven years he had seldom been outside of the house.
Mr. Clay was the son of Elizabeth and Henry Clay. He was born in Red Bank and was in his 50th year. When he was about fourteen years old he entered the Standard office as office boy and was rapidly advanced. He remained in the Standard office until 1878. For more than ten years he was foreman of the Standard printing office and was local editor of the paper. Mr. Clay was a fine reporter and was very original in his descriptions of events. In 1878 he and his brother-in-law, John H. Cook, started The Register, but the following year Mr. Clay severed his connection with the paper and went to New York, where he was employed for several years as a reporter on various papers and as foreman of printing offices. Since 1884 he had lived at Red Bank.
Mr. Clay was unmarried. He leaves three sisters and one brother. The sisters are Elizabeth, wife of John H. Cook of Red Bank; Maria, wife of Charles A. McClaskey of Red Bank; and Henrietta, wife of Arthur E. Smith of Fair Haven. The brother is Robert Clay of Red Bank.
The funeral will be private.
