Because of these inquiries we have decided to make Brother Henry Samuel Hollings (died 1918, aged 77) our featured deceased member of Temple Lodge, No.33 for October 2016.
Brother Hollings was one of the fourteen Charter Members of Temple Lodge in December 1899. He was a prosperous farmer in Mill Bay.
Before becoming a Charter Member of Temple Lodge in December 1899, Brother Hollings had been a member of Chatham Lodge, No.47 in Ontario. Chatham Lodge 47 is no longer listed on the Register of the Grand Lodge of Canada in Ontario.

Brother Henry Samuel Hollings is buried in St. John the Baptist Anglican Cemetery in Cobble Hill. Unfortunately we do not currently have a photo of brother Hollings but hHere is a photo of his grave. Un
