While not a common name among Vandalia citizens, Henry J. Remington, "closely related to the Remingtons of firearm fame," chose Vandalia as the place to live out his last years.
Henry J. Remington was born on June 8, 1839, in Savoy, Berkshire County, Mass., the son of Aaron Remington, a veteran of the War of 1812. Both of Henrys grandfathers served in the Revolutionary War.
He was an interesting enough fellow that the editors of the "Encyclopedia of Illinois and History of Fayette County," published in 1910, included him in their volume.
