Charles/6k Brooks, born 14 May 1798 at Brownfield, Maine3,4,5,6, married (1) Eunice Skillings of Cape Elizabeth.7 Mentioned, of Buxton, Maine, in an affidavit of his brother Samuel's, 1845. (The 1850 census, however, reports that all his children were born in New Hampshire from 1824 on.)1
     The 1850 census recorded Charles Brooks (a. 51, farmer, r.e. $1500), wife Eunice (a. 54), and 7 children, ages 13-26, in their household at Freedom, New Hampshire. Four dwellings down was his nephew William ("Edward") Brooks; another five dwellings down was Edward's brother Joseph.4
     Eunice died at Freedom 11 Oct 18578, and he married (2), 6 Apr 1859 at Ossipee, Jerusha Quarles of Ossipee, daughter of Samuel Quarles and Lydia Very.9,2 Their 1860 census household at Ossipee included Charles (a. 61, farmer, r.e. $1,000. p.e. $530), Jerusha (a. 54), and John Moulton (a. 21, farmer, $50 p.e.)10
     In 1870, Charles (a. 72, r.e. $1,000, p.e. $773) and Jerusha lived alone at Ossipee. While her recorded real estate assets appear to be (a quite anomalous) $21000, it seems likely that the enumerator's pen squiggle following the "2" represents a comma, not the digit "1," and that she correctly had real estate in her name of $2,000.11
     Charles died at Ossipee 9 Oct 1879, a. 8112, and his widow 24 Aug 1884, a. 80.9,13 He is buried with both wives in Quarles Cemetery, Ossipee.14
