Biography :

When entering the Home on August 31, 1871, he stated living in Louisville, a machinist, single with no relatives and suffering of partial loss of sight contracted in Fall 1864, Chattanooga, Tennessee. No trace of him, except for the years just before his admission to the Soldiers' Home. I find him in Louisville, Kentucky, the residence he supplied when entering the Home.   

The Louisville directories for 1869 and 1871, and the 1870 census, put him living at Lerner Hotel and working at the Snead & Co Iron Works, a foundry supplying cast iron for buildings. The only information I have is that he was born Belgium around 1820.  Back at the Home in December 1875, he stayed there till his death from pneumonia on May 24, 1886. He is buried E 14 grave 39.  The only Dereme I found is Jean Dereme, born Belgium about 1817, arrival in New York on Waverly, June 4, 1839. No trace either of an Henry Dereme.
