As part of our Vancouver Island Masonic History Project, with its sections on Vancouver Island Cemeteries – Masonic Interments and Deceased Brethren, here is a page on Herbert Abraham Harrison (died 27 July 1888, aged 24), who is buried in Ross Bay Cemetery, Victoria, B.C.
We do not know a lot about Herbert Abraham Harrison. He was a member of Vancouver & Quadra Lodge, No. 2 in Victoria.
Here is the report of his death from the Daily Colonist newspaper:
“Harrison – At Vancouver, on the 27 inst., of inflammation of the bowels, Herbert A. Harrison, a native of Illinois, U.S., aged 26 years.
The funeral will take place tomorrow, Sunday, at half past two o’clock, from the Masonic Temple, Douglas Street. Friends are invited to attend.”
