I am related to this family. Otto "Dude" Henke was my dad's uncle.Royal Parkhurst was married to Vera Henke, Otto's daughter. Otto had a service station and Royal helped with the family business.Royal had a falling out with his father-in-law concerning matters with the business.From what I understand, Royal had taken liberties to write checks for personal items which he was not supposed to do.Royal came to the service station one day and had an argument with Otto. Otto told Royal the sheriff was looking for him at which time Royal pulled out a gun and shot his father-in-law. I have photocopied the newspapers articles from Wheatland concerning the shooting.
What else do you want to know about the Henke family?
