Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a Certified Genealogist whose primary focus for 20+ years has been a regional one-name study of the Brooks families of early New England. I maintain a website to share this information at and am in the initial stages of preparing a book on the descendants of Capt. Thomas Brooks, who died at Concord, MA in 1667. A secondary focus for just as long has been the old Willow Cemetery in Franconia, NH, which I first visited in 1968. Results of an historical/archaeological survey I did there in 2002 for the Town of Franconia are available at

Corrections and additions, whether to FAG memorials I manage or to the Tributaries web site, are always appreciated.

Hi Christopher,

The Pagett name came from some one had in the family search site. After looking back they are not listing an other spouse so I have removed that name. Thank You for calling me on this.

RE: Nathan Brooks m. Wyman, Fowle
I had not verified that relationship. Yes, according to mine also, they are 2nd cousins. It is so much easier to keep track of with computers, which those folks didn't have back when those books were written:)
So many of my relatives intermarry and have the same names, it is very confusing at times. I can't begin to imagine how hard it was to keep it all straight without a computer.
Thanks for the followup :)

Hi Christopher,

Thank you so much for taking and posting the great pictures of my Churchill family. I was very surprised to see the Blain gravestone included on both Bertha's and Charles' memorials. Can you tell me why please?

RE: John B. Brooks & wives, St. Jay
Well, instant fulfill as I sit on my couch with morning coffee.
I photographed that cemetery about a year ago.

I thought I would point out that at the John B. Brooks plot was a flush stone that only had "Mary Brooks Huntoon" on it. It is next to Frederick (the son of John and Martha Dana.

I was trying to see if the Charles E. Brooks that is also in that cemetery was a relative of John. I believe it is his son? He married Hattie/Nettie Galbraith 8/1/1885.
While researching I see that you have a Mary Brooks Huntoon in a different cemetery. Just thought I would let you know that there is a marker (with no more information other than the name) in the plot
