Jeremiah/6k Brooks, born in Maine circa 17972, married (int. 17 May 1823, Kittery, Maine) Lucy Scriggins.1 The 1850 census recorded Jeremiah (a. 52, fisherman, real estate $100), Lucy (a. 53), and children Frances (a. 17), George (a. 15) and Horace (a. 13) in their household at Eliot. Next door was his brother Daniel's widow and her children.3 In 1860 he was still a fisherman at Eliot, with an additional $25 of p.e. recorded. With him were his widowed sister-in-law Elizabeth (Remick) Brooks (a. 62) and his son (George) Washington (a. 25, farmer). Unmentioned, for reasons unknown, was his wife Lucy.2
     In 1870, their Eliot household consisted of Jeremiah (a. 72, laborer), Lucy (a. 78), and (grandsons?) Benjamin and William Brooks. Next door was Jeremiah's brother Abraham, and two doors further down, Jeremiah's cousin Thomas F. Brooks.4
     Lucy died 6 Sep 1878, "81 yrs."5 In 1880 Jeremiah ("a. 92") was boarding in Eliot with Frederick and Frances Remick, a young couple, two doors down from Jeremiah's 1st cousin Alpheus H. Brooks.6 Jeremiah died 15 Nov 1880, "82 yrs." (g.s.)7, and is buried with Lucy in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Eliot.8
