Jerusha Quarles was born circa 1 Jan 1804 (g.s.) at Ossipee, New Hampshire2,3, where she farmed, first with her father and then alone. She eventually married, a. 54, as his 2nd wife, 6 Apr 1859, Charles/6k Brooks of Freedom, New Hampshire, son of Daniel/5k? Brooks and Susanna Dunn.2,4 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.)5
     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 $2,000.6
     Charles died at Ossipee 9 Oct 1879, a. 817, and Jerusha 24 Aug 1884, a. 80-7-23 (g.s.)2,8 They are buried with his 1st wife in Quarles Cemetery, Ossipee.9
