BROWN, HENRY P. 1869-1908
From Proceedings, Page 1908-16:
W. Henry P. Brown, of Nantucket, was born in that town Oct. 16, 1869, and died there Feb. 21, 1908. His illness was comparatively short and his death quite unexpected. He was one of Nantucket's most popular and influential young men - one that Nantucket can ill afford to lose, and one whose place in the business and social relations of the town it will be hard to fill. Whole souled, kind and generous-hearted, he was at all times ready and willing to assist in any movement which would benefit Nantucket or her people. His prospects were of the brightest, and he has left in his native town a reputation for business integrity, industry and kindness which are a monument to his memory,

He held appointed offices in the Lodge from Nov. 7, 1892, to Nov. 4, 1895, when he was elected Junior Warden and served two years.
