Henry Greenwood
The East Liverpool Tribune


Henry Greenwood, owner and founder of he Greenwood brewery, died at 1:15 last night (Mar. 7, 1906) at his home in Ridgeway avenue of Bright’s disease, after a lingering illness. He had been unconscious since Monday morning.

Had he survived until May 1, he would have been 69 years old. He had been a resident of East Liverpool for over 20 years and was well known and highly respected in business circles and private life. The funeral will be arranged today and announcement will be made later.

Mr. Greenwood was born at Oldham, England, and came to this country in 1861, locating at Beaver Falls. He was manager of the Anderton Brewery at Beaver Falls for nearly 25 years and was considered a very capable brewmaster. Mr. Anderton, the owner of the brewery, was his brother0in-law. After relinquishing his position at Beaver Falls, Mr. Greenwood came to East Liverpool and established the plant which since has borne his name.

He was a member of the Knights of Pythias and the Odd Fellows lodges of Beaver Falls, and had been identified with both for a number of years. He began to fail in health about sixteen weeks ago and his decline had been very rapid since. The bereaved wife and children were about his bedside when he breathed his last.

The children who survive are Mrs. Mary Wyman, New Castle, Pa.; Mrs. Elmer Freed, of Beaver Falls; Mrs. Roy Halhnon, of East Palestine; Mrs. Alfred Croket, of Beaver Falls; Mrs. Nancy Williams, Mrs. Will Nagle, Joseph G., Thomas and William and Alice Greenwood, all of this city.

Mrs. James Anderton, of Beaver Falls, who died last November was a sister to the deceased. He has one sister and brother living in England.
