I found a little bit of info on Joseph Holbrook.
Mayo's Beach Light House in Wellfleet, Massachusetts
Mayo's Beach Light, was finished in 1838 and exhibited a fixed white light visible for 12 miles. The lantern originally held ten lamps and reflectors.
Joseph Holbrook was appointed first keeper of Mayo's Beach Light at a salary of $350 yearly. During Holbrook's first four years at the lighthouse there were three shipwrecks in the vicinity, including the 270 ton brig Diligence. In 1839 Holbrook counted over 700 vessels passing the lighthouse.
In 1842 Holbrook complained that "The very wretched manner in which the house was built renders it almost uninhabitable; the walls always and the roof continually leaky."
Holbrook explained that the house, which had no foundation, was set two feet below the surface of the beach. This caused the cellar to be continually flooded with seawater. Two of Holbrook's children died in their first four years at the lighthouse, a tragedy that the keeper blamed on the unhealthy conditions. Keeper Holbrook believed that the lighthouse had been erected in a "very shameful manner."

Coffin plates often contain birth and death dates, and sometimes the place of birth or the occupation of a deceased person.
While not technically a true vital record, coffin plates can be seen as a substitute for vital records or at the least a good clue. In the case of people who died before civil registration it might be one of the few written records genealogists will find in their hunt for that brick wall ancestor!
If you want to know more about what things qualify as a true Vital Records there is a good article at the Olive Tree.
Remember when searching for Coffin Plates on the net they are sometimes referred to as Coffin Plaques, Casket plates or Casket Plaques.
