Alfred Langdon/8k Brooks, born 22 May 1842 (g.s.) at Eliot, Maine2,3, was recorded there (a. 7, attended school) in his parents' household at Eliot in 18501, and again (a. 18, brickmaker, attended school) in 1860.4 He married, circa 1865, Ann (Annie) Augusta Lewis of Eliot, daughter of William Lewis and Jane Spinney, with whom he had 11 children.5
     He was farming at Eliot, 1872 and 1878, but removed to Newington, New Hampshire by 1879.6 The 1880 census recorded their Newington household as Alfred (a. 38, farmer), wife Annie (a. 33), and children Wilmer (a. 14, farm laborer), Irving (a. 13, farm laborer), Alfred (a. 11, attending school), Victor (a. 8), Bernice (a. 5), Arthur (a. 3), and Annie (a. 6 mos., b. NH).7 The birth record of their daughter Essie, 1891, reported Alfred as a laborer at Newington.8
     In the 1899 marriage record of their son Victor, Annie is recorded as Annie A. Lewis, res. Newington, while Alfred was perhaps working in Eliot, as he was given as a resident there.9 The marriage record of their son Arthur, 1900, reported Alfred as a laborer at Portsmouth, New Hampshire.10 That year's census reported the household at Newington, consisting of Alfred (a. 57, farm owner), Annie A. (a. 52, married 34 yrs., 8 of 11 children living), and children Nellie F. (a. 18), Leroy H. (a. 12, student), and Essie R. (a. 8, student).5
     Alfred was killed 7 Dec 1903, at the Kittery, Maine naval shipyard, "age 61-6-15," by the fall of a heavy timber on his head.2 Annie died at Newington 10 Feb 1912, a. 64.11 They are buried in Newington Cemetery.12
