M, b. 11 September 1865, d. 15 August 1917
     Henry J. Souther II was Consulting Engineer. He was born on 11 September 1865 at Boston, Massachusetts.1 He was the son of Henry Souther and Mary Wheeler. Henry J. Souther II was also known as Major Henry Souther. He appeared on the census of 1880 at Boston, Massachusetts.2 He married Elizabeth Louisa Sherman, daughter of Edgar Jay Sherman and Abby Louisa Simmons, on 11 September 1888 at Lawrence, Massachusetts.3 Henry J. Souther II died on 15 August 1917 at Fort Monroe, Hampton, Virginia, at age 51.4,5 He was obituary Among the personal notes of David Latham Stevens was the mention of an obituary notice pasted inside a book about this Henry Souther.

"Henry Souther, Major, Senior Officer, Aircraft Engineering Division, Aviation Section, Signal Corps, United States Army and Vice President, Henry Souther Engineering Corporation, Hartford, Connecticut, died August 15, 1917 in the post hospital at Fortress Monroe, Virginia, following an operation. He was born at Boston in 1865 and was graduated in 1887 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he specialized in mining and metallurgical subjects. After studying abroad the manufacturing methods and processes employeed in the German iron and steel industry, he entered in 1888 the employ of the Pennsylvania Steel Company at Steelton and was made assistant foreman the following year. He was engineer of tests for the Pope Manufacturing Company, a position which he held for six years. At the Pope works he organized the first testing plant ever installed, it is believed by a consumer of steel for the use of cold drawn tubing for bicycles and automobiles. In 1894 he went abroad for the Pope company to investigate the manufacture of horseless vehicles which had just begun and was largely responsible for the first Pope model which was placed on the market in 1897.

When the Pope organization was dissolved in 1899 he engaged in business as an independent consulting engineer and established a metallurgical and testing laboratory and did consulting work for the automobile industry. He was Vice President and Treasurer of the Henry Souther Engineering Corporation from 1899 to 1909 and became President in 1911. Of late years he was not very active in the management of that organization and was Vice President and General Manager of the Ferro Machine & Foundry Company, Cleveland, from 1913 to the outbreak of the war. Latterly he had charge of the aircraft development of the Army and operated a corps for the inspection of aircraft.

He was a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and was prominent in the Association of Licensed Automobile Manufacturers. He was a founder member of what is now the Society of Automotive Engineers and had much to do with the development of the organization. He leaves a wife and two married daughters. He was cremation at Forest Hills Crematory, Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. He was buried on 18 August 1917 at Forest Hills Cemetery, Blueberry Path, Lot 6300, Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. In 1887 Henry graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Henry was listed as an Engineer with Pennsylvania Steel Company from 1888-1893, Pope Manufacturing Company in Hartford, Connecticut from 1893-1899, President of Henry Souther Engineering Company, Vice-president of Standard Roller Bearing Company and Ferro Machine & Foundary Company, Cleveland and Water Commissioner at Hartford, Connecticut from 1899-1907. Henry was a Republican.6
Mining Engineer, 1887; also postgraduate course in metallurgy in Germany. Steel expert, employed by United States government. He was of Bass Rocks, Massachusetts. Souther Field in Americus, Georgia, was named in his memory.

Compiler's Note: The property known as Souther Field during World War I was originally part of the world's largest peach orchard. It was purchased by the citizens of Sumter County and deeded to the United States Government in 1917. An aviation field was constructed immediately and later closed in 1921 and sold back to Sumter County in 1928. Perhaps the most famous of fliers to come in contact with Souther Field was Charles Augustus Lindberg, Jr. (4 Feb 1902, Detroit, Michigan - 26 Aug 1974 at Hana, Maui, Hawai`i). "Lindy" made his first solo flight from Souther Field in a Curtiss "Jenny" which he had purchased there at government auction when the field was closed. He made that flight 4 years before his trans-Atlantic crossing.7

The following mini-biography and photographs (seen elsewhere) are from: Somerville, Past and Present, An Illustrated Historical Souvenir, Boston, 1897.

Souther, Ezra D., son of Emery and Hannah (Lincoln) Souther, was born in Boston, October 11, 1847. He attended the Mayhew School in that city and on the completion of his education entered a commission house, where he remained six years; he then took a position with the National Revere Bank of Boston and has remained in it to the present time, a period of twenty-five years. Mr. Souther's first ancestor in this country came over in about 1632 and was the first secretary of Plymouth Colony. The Lincolns of Hingham were his ancestors on his mother's side, among whom was General Ebenezer Lincoln; it is also claimed that Abraham Lincoln was one of the Hingham family. Mr. Souther has lived in Somerville for the last twenty-three years and served the city in the Common Council in 1887 and 1888 and in the Board of Aldermen in 1889 and 1890. He was elected Overseer of the Poor to fill an unexpired term, in January, 1895; and in April, 1896, was re-elected for a full term of four years. He is a member of Soley Lodge, F.A.A.M., Winter Hill Lodge, K.H., Unity Council, Royal Arcanum, Boston Bank Officers' Association and the Broadway Congregational Society. He married Lydia True Preble of Boston, November 28, 1872 and they have two children, a son and a daughter. They reside at 14 Pembroke Street.

One family member's notes recorded him as Ezra Dance Souther.

Arthur Lillie Souther

M, b. 11 July 1866, d. 22 February 1951
Arthur Lillie Souther
From the collection of: Michael Marston Souther
     Arthur Lillie Souther was personldat. He was Apothecary. He was born on 11 July 1866 at Boston, Massachusetts.1 He was the son of Emery Souther and Hannah Lincoln Souther. Arthur Lillie Souther was born on 11 July 1867 at Boston, Massachusetts.2 He married first to Mary Williamine Marston, daughter of Oliver Hutchins Marston and Sarah Richardson Whitcher, on 18 October 1888 at Stoneham, Massachusetts.3 Arthur Lillie Souther was membership on 6 June 1895 at Grand Lodge of Masons, Columbian Lodge, Boston, Massachusetts.4 He appeared on the census of 1900 at Pleasant Street, Stoneham, Massachusetts.5 He married second to Susan Madeline Myers, daughter of Patrick Myers and Bridget Flynn, on 27 April 1924 at Willmington, Massachusetts.6 Arthur Lillie Souther appeared on the census of 1930 at Stoneham, Massachusetts.7 His estate was probated on 26 January 1932. He died on 22 February 1951 at Boston, Massachusetts, at age 84.8 He was buried on 24 February 1951 at Lindenwood Cemetery, Lots 61 & 62, Plot 9, Stoneham, Massachusetts. Born the youngest of seven children at 2 Lyman Street in Boston.

Arthur and Mary were married by Reverend D. A. Newton, Pastor of the Stoneham Congregational Church.

Arthur worked as a clerk and also as an apothecary with his father. He joined the King Cyrus Lodge of Masons in Reading on 21 Dec 1920. In 1945 he received the Vets Medal from the Masons.

On 6 Jun 1895, Arthur became a member of the Grand Lodge of Masons of Massachusetts, Columbian Lodge.

Found in the typewritten will of Arthur, dated 26 Jan 1932, he leaves to his wife, Susan M. Souther all his property. I have found no other record of this wife. Apparently he remarried after his first wife died. [Editor's note: Susan has since been identified]. If Susan should die before him everything would go to his son Oliver and "I intentionally make no provision for my son Harold W. Souther because of his attitude towards me."

According to the records of the Lindenwood Cemetery, Arthur is buried at Lots 61 & 62, Plot 9, next to his wife, however no one has ever put his date on the tombstone even though there are later burials whose inscriptions are complete. His wake was held at A. E. Finnegan & Sons at 322 Main Street, Stoneham. At the time of his death he was living at 22 Lawrence Street.
He was described on 10 August 2010 at 56890647.
