Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a Certified Genealogist whose focus for 25 years has been a regional one-name study of Brooks families originating in early (pre-1700) New England. I maintain a website to share this information at Tributaries.info and am preparing a book on one of these families, the descendants of Capt. Thomas Brooks, who died at Concord, Massachusetts in 1667. A secondary focus for even longer has been the old Willow Cemetery in Franconia, New Hampshire, dating to the late 18th century, which I first stumbled across, in a state of overgrown neglect, in 1968. Results and maps of an historical/archaeological survey I did there in 2002 for the Town of Franconia can be downloaded at http://www.tributaries.info/willowindex.htm.

Corrections and additions are always appreciated.

RE: Brooks burials
You are so welcome. I wish there were a fence around this cemetery. Cows do what they want! I'm certain all have markers but we've had so much rain, it was terribly muddy. I feel bad for not being able to stand the stones up or repair the area.

Hello possible cousin since she is my 5th Great Aunt. I was going from her death document as you mentioned, however, do not have a birth record.

RE: Brooks/Miles family
You are welcome. There are many more gravestones there, but they are not in the best of condition. I am still working on getting good photographs.

Florence E. Battis 1873-1876
She is listed on the large stone with Nellie M. Battis. I did the paper rubbing today. It really helped. The back of the little white stone (front side saying Our darling Ethel) says this:
F.E. Battis
dau of
Josiah S. &
Emma J Battis
aged 3 yrs 2 mo
14 days

If you create a memorial for Florence, I will post the photos.

I did not find Russell Hook or Dudley Hook markers.

Find A Grave lists Emma Battis' parents as Henry & Jerusha Brooks. Yet, Henry and Jerusha are not linked as spouses on their memorials. Do you want to request an edit to link them?

I am now wondering about Clara (on the white stone in front of Henry and Jerusha's side). So strange.

I hope you don't feel I am getting too involved with your ancestors...but that is why I photograph...ancestors are important to me and sometimes I develop a bond with some of the ones that are intriguing.

I will upload photos of the Nutters later tonight.

RE: Battis Clan
Went to the cemetery briefly today. I uploaded personal stones for Roland and Jean (memorial lists her as Thelma Jean Battis-I put in name change request to Jean Corwin Battis). I also uploaded photo of other side of Nellie's personal stone- it is very pretty. So...there is a small white upright stone. one side says Our darling Ethel. The other side is very difficult to read. I THINK it says E E Battis, son of Josiah...then I think I can make out Emma J below that. I couldn't read everything. I am going to try a paper rubbing. The stone on that side is worn, but very clean. Wish me luck. Didn't look for the other Hooks yet.
