Was your Henry Brown the cop killed on the job in 1896? I'm asking because "Henry Brown" is such a common name.
IF SO, there are some articles on a Henry Brown police officer killed in a shoot out in Frankfort, KY. Long 2 part article attached. From The Courier-Journal, Louisville, KY, Feb 15, 1896.
Other article from The Hazel Green Herald, Hazel Green, KY dated Feb 20, 1896.
Next one from The Public Ledger, Maysville, KY, Feb 15, 1896.
Next - Courier-Journal, Feb 17, about his funeral.
Hope this is your Henry......
