FRENCH, HENRY R.

FRENCH, HENRY R. (?–?). Henry R. French, Galveston newspaperman, the brother of George H. French and brother-in-law of Samuel Bangs, entered the newspaper business with his brother and worked as editor on the daily Galvestonian after the death of John Gladwin. When the paper ceased publication in early 1840, he moved the operation to the office of the Civilian, and in March founded another Galvestonian, which he left in 1842 to become the proprietor of a bakery shop.
