Children with Susanna Dunn:

Daniel/5k? Brooks Jr. was born circa 1761 at Kittery, Maine.1 NOTE that his parentage is inferred, not proven; his generational suffix (5k?) is thus qualified with a question mark.
     He removed shortly with his family to Falmouth (now Portland), where he lived 40 years.1 Of Falmouth, he married, 26 Sep 1782 at Cape Elizabeth (int. 15 Jun 1782), Susanna Dunn of C.E., daughter of Samuel Dunn and Sarah Skilling.1,2 His 1790 census household at Falmouth included himself, two males under 16 (sons Samuel and Daniel), and three females (wife Susanna and daughters Martha Jane and Sarah). Also head of a household at Falmouth that year was John Brooks, supposed to be Daniel's uncle.3 Daniel died 24 Nov 1836 at Freedom, New Hampshire4,1, and Susanna 4 Aug 1838.4,1
     13 Sep 1832, Daniel Brooks of North Effingham, aged 71 (74?), made application for a Revolutionary soldier's pension. He stated that he first enlisted, Apr 1776 at Falmouth (now Portland), Maine, where he then lived, for one year in Capt. Abner Lowell's company, and served the entire term of enlistment at Falmouth. Upon discharge, he reenlisted in the same company for 8 months, again stationed at Falmouth. In 1780 he enlisted for 8 months in Capt. Joseph Pride's company, Col. Prime's regiment, and served the entire time at Falmouth — making, he said, two years and four months of service in all. He further stated that he was "born in Kittery in the District of Maine moved to Falmouth lived in Falmouth 40 years moved to Effingham now North Effingham where he resides and has for almost 30 years past."1 The claim was approved 15 Apr 1833, and Daniel Brooks was added to the pension roll of New Hampshire at the rate of $80 per annum.1
     10 Oct 1845, his son Samuel Brooks, of Freedom, New Hampshire, made application, on behalf of himself and his surviving brothers (Charles, John, William and Gardner Brooks) and sisters (Matty Durgin, Betsey Brooks, Abigail Boynton, Mary Palmer and Sally Stewart) for their father's pension.1
