GETS MEDAL FOR DYING BUT STILL LIVING IN N. DAK.
Walcott, N.D., Feb 12—Relatives of Henry O Magenton, farmer-soldier, yesterday received a citation from the war department, signed by the adjutant general and President Wilson, for bravery in giving his life on the battle field of France today.
Mr. Magenton is working here.

"Soldiers of the Great War", published in 1920, lists Henry's death and as such many current records show him as killed in action (I caused this correction). Henry lived into his seventies and is buried in Los Angeles National Cemetery.
