Henry Ginder, of
New Orleans, who had served in the Coast Survey from 1846 to
1851, died in that city June 23, 1922, aged 90 years. When he
resigned from the survey he was an aid in the party of F. H.
He requested that the Coast and Geodetic Survey
Office be informed in the event of his death, as he had always
held the service in affectionate regard.
Mr. Ginder was probably the oldest survivor
of those who aided in the work at that early period. He had
been in business in New Orleans for many years. [Henry Ginder
was the President of A.B. Griswold and Company in 1921, a jewelry
and silversmith concern. During the Civil War, he was initially
involved in manufacturing war supplies for the Confederate Army
and then was in the Army of Tennessee.]
