Children with Elizabeth/4 Belden:

Ebenezer/2s Brooks was born 21 Dec 1662 at Springfield, Massachusetts.4,1 With the deaths of his two elder brothers at the hands of Indians in 1675, he became the eldest surviving son, an important distinction in a household which counted 16 births in his father's lifetime.5,6
     He and his father were each granted 50 acres "beyond, or at ye upper end of Hight streete," Suffield, Connecticut, 1680.7 "Ebenezer Brooks, son of William, Sr., probably did not settle, as no record of his marriage is found here. He settled in Deerfield. His grant, as well as his father's, seems to have been made, in consideration of their loss of relatives killed by the Indians." Ebenezer's brother-in-law Dea. Jonathan Taylor, husband of Sarah Brooks, also received a Suffield grant on the Springfield Road, but, unlike his inlaws, he occupied his.8
     Home lots were granted at Wapping, in Deerfield, between 1685 and 1690, to Ebenezer and Nathaniel Brooks, on condition of being built upon within a year and maintaining all abutting meadow fence.9 Ebenezer and Nathaniel also inherited from their father, who d. 1688, lots 3 and 4 on the west end of Main Street, Deerfield, which passed to Benjamin Munn.10
     Ebenezer married, 8 Oct 1693, at Deerfield (Torrey), where they lived, Elizabeth/4 Belden of Deerfield, daughter of Daniel/3 Belden and Elizabeth Foote,11,12, and purchased a lot at Deerfield, Feb 1702/3, formerly (1672) of John Allen.13 Their house was burned in the attack on Deerfield, 29 Feb 1703/4, but he and his family escaped death or captivity by hiding in a cellar. John Winthrop recorded the value of their loss as £70.2,3 Ebenezer rebuilt and was "often in town office."3
     Ebenezer was living at Deerfield, 1720, but his death is not recorded there. It is probable that they removed to Ridgefield, Connecticut to live with their son Ebenezer. His wife Elizabeth's death was recorded at Ridgefield in 1745.14,3

Samuel conveyed an acre to the Town for a burial ground and in 1764 for 128 pounds 10 shillings 8d. he deeded the remainder of the 2 lots of Rev. Dr. Newton.

Children with Nathaniel/2s Brooks:

Mary/2 Williams, born 24 Dec 16733, married, as his 1st wife, circa 1695, Nathaniel/2s Brooks of Deerfield, Massachusetts, son of William/1s Brooks and Mary/2 Burt.4,3 Her father had been killed in September, 1675 at "Bloody Brook," when a force of 80 soldiers and 18 teamsters under Capt. Thomas Lathrop, sent to harvest the English cornfields at Hadley, was ambushed by a much larger force of Pocumtuck Indians.5 Taken captive with her husband and two young children in the French and Indian raid on Deerfield, 29 Feb 1703/4, Mary was killed by the Indians on the 7th of March a few miles south of the present location of White River Junction, Vermont.2,6
     "Deaths continued to mount as the party made its way the next sixty miles north, up the Connecticut River. In fact, by the time the journey to Canada ended, 21 of the 109 prisoners had been killed. The killings were not random or wanton. Rather, they fell upon people who could not keep up with the party as it moved, especially older women and young children.. Rev. John Williams, Deerfield's minister and a fellow captive, relates in his account, The Redeemed Captive Returning to Zion:

The next day (Tuesday, March 7), in the morning, before we travelled, one Mary Brooks, a pious young woman, came to the wigwam where I was, and told me she desired to bless God, who had inclined the heart of her master to let her come and take her farewell of me. Said she, 'By my falls on the ice yesterday, I injured myself, causing a miscarriage this night, so that I am not able to travel far; I know they will kill me to-day; but,' says she, 'God has (praised be his name!) by his spirit, with his word, strengthened me to my last encounter with death'; and so mentioned to me some places of Scripture seasonably sent in for her support. 'And,' says she, 'I am not afraid of death; I can, through the grace of God, cheerfully submit to his will. Pray for me,' said she at parting, 'that God would take me to himself.' Accordingly, she was killed that day. I mention it, to the end I may stir up all, in their young days, to improve the death of Christ by faith, to a giving them an holy boldness in the day of death.2,7,8

     Mary's children were reported to have reached Canada, after which they vanished. Her husband Nathaniel was ransomed two years later, returned to Deerfield, and remarried in 1709.
