Henry Harrington BROADFOOT

Henry Harrington Broadfoot, son and oldest child of James and Lillian (Harrington) Broadfoot is buried with his parents at the River Bend Cemetery in Westerly, RI.

Henry was a research scientist at MIT and I have located two papers he co-authored about chemistry and textiles. My father said he was the smartest Broadfoot!

Henry's WWII draft card gives his birth date as 28 June 1893 and place as Cambridge, MA but in the 1900 census he and his family are living in Vermont. They have moved to Westerly, RI by 1910 and Henry lives there until 1920 when he moves to Warwick, RI. In 1930, he lives in New Bedford, MA and he probably died there a single man in 1966.

Henry and both his sisters never marry or have children and so ends this line of Broadfoots.
