Eliza J/6k Brooks, born 6 Jan 18342,3, was enumerated (as the female aged 5-10) in her parents' 1840 census household at Eliot, Maine4, and again recorded there (a. 16) in her widowed mother's household in 18505 and 1860 (a. 25, tailoress).6 In 1870 she and her mother were living with her brother Alfred at Eliot.7 In 1880 she was unmarried (a. 44), keeping house for Alfred.8 Eliza J. (a. 66, housekeeper, b. Jan 1834) was still living with Alfred and their brother Levi at Eliot in 1900.9 In 1910, of the original family, only Levi and Eliza remained, living together at Eliot.10
     Never married, Eliza died 19 Feb 1919, a. 85.11 Eliza and two siblings are buried with their parents and share a family monument in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, South Eliot.12
     
The Brooks Memorial Park and Cemetery [located across the State Road from Mount Pleasant Cemetery] has a long and interesting history … The last members of the Brooks family, Levi and his sister, Liza, promised their niece, Marietta Frye Abbott, that if she took care of them in their old age, they would deed the property to her, which they did.
     Marietta died in 1955 and her husband, Horace P. Abbott, inherited the land. He had been the caretaker of the Mount Pleasant Cemetery for 25 years and had a keen interest in cemeteries. He decided to take some of the land and establish the Brooks Memorial Park and Cemetery.
     After doing much of the work of clearing and preparing the land himself, Horace died in 1960 at the age of 87. The first lots were ready for sale in 1970.13
