From The History of Holt County Missouri, Page 459, Circa 1917:

"Harry S. Browning, custodian of the Commercial Block in St. Joseph, was born in Holt County, October 3, 1873, on his father's farm in Union township. He lived there until 22 years old when, for three years he farmed for himself. He then moved to St. Joseph, where he has since lived. He was first foreman of the ice plant for the Hammond Packing company for three years, then with the Bell Telephone Company, as lineman for like period. He then took the position of doorkeeper at the old Palace Theatre; then he returned to the Bell Telephone Company and in 1910 accepted the position of custodian of the Commercial Block.

He is the son of Elias W. Browning, a native of Kentucky, a brother of James and Napoleon Browning, now of Mound City. The three brothers came to Holt County in 1884 and engaged in farming. Elias Browning died in May, 1910, at the age of 82 years.
