LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
I am looking forward with great enthusiasm and exuberance to the 1973
publishing year, I feel more comfortable and confident having had one year's
experience and will continue the endeavor to bring to you a worthwhile
magazine devoted to research of the various branches of the Brooks family,
It is important to everyone that the BOB grow in membership. The more
members we have, the more information we have to share both in the BOB
and through members' correspondence. Presently, we have 70 members. Let
each of us be a committee of one and secure additional members and double
or triple our membership in this coming year. You may send names and addresses
to me and I will send them an application, You may also help by mentioning
the BOB in correspondence to non-members.
In our July issue, we are planning to have an "Earliest Brooks Ancestor Proven" section. To avoid last minute preparation, the stencils are being cut now. It is, therefore, to your advantage to send this material now, following is an example for the "Earliest Brooks Ancestor Proven.":
"Thomas Brooks prob from London, settled in Watertown MA. Freeman 7
Dec 1636. Soon move to Concord," (This, of course, is preceded by the name
and address of the desc)
The greatest benefits from membership in any family organization are
not realized until it has been in existence two or three years, Slowly,
sometimes almost imperceptibly, missing dates, names, and places begin
to fill in, and family lines are drawn more clearly. Pursuant of this objective
, we trust that the records we print each quarter are clearing up questions
you've had, We invite you to correspond with the Editor and confirm, refute,
or question any statement appearing in these pages, If it helps straighten
out anyone's line, well be happy to be wrong.
I am sorry to say reprinting of Vol. I No. 2 has been delayed but I do hope to have it available soon.
Mr. Ted 0. Brooke has completed the Index for Volume I and I am in receipt
of it, The
Index will be sent free of charge to all who were members for the 1972 publishing year. Others may purchase the Index for $1.00.
Mrs. C.D. Collins, 815 Randolph, Holly Springs MS 38635 has a copy of
Brooks and Kindred Families by Ida Brooks Kellum and will relay anything
from it that anyone wants, Please enclose a SAVE with your letter.
Again, part of the 1880 Soundex of AR was continued and will be finished
in the April issue.

The following article appeared in The Washington Post, Real estate Section, on October 14, 1972.
HISTORIC HOUSES SEEN IN TINY BROOKEVILLE
One of the largest of those early lords of Montgomery County land was
James Brooke, who
had acquired almost 20,000 acres from about 1728 to his death in 1784.
In one of Brooke's grants, "Addition to Brooke Grove", the snug, little village of Brookeville is neatly tucked away.
One hundred and fifty years ago it was an established town, the only one in the county north of Georgetown. Architecturally and historically significant, this early Quaker community of less than 200 people was "capital" for a day in 1814. And some of Montgomery County's earliest homes are there.
Montgomery does not as yet have an historic preservation district. But when it does, Thomas M. Anderson, president of the Montgomery County Historical Society and member of the Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission, figures that Brookeville probably will be its first.
Situated two miles north of Olney on Route 97, and surrounded by still-private land grant estate, Brookeville was once an anomaly amid the rural and forested lands circling it. From its founding in 1794 to the time it turned the 20th century, Brookeville vibrated with the hum of smithies, wheelwrights, cobblers, tanneries, a carriage and wagon shop, several mills and three churches.
As you enter T-shaped Brookeville, attention is immediately drawn to a two-story, heavy stone structure with simple, clean lines typical of the architecture found in towns settled by Quaker families. Brookeville Academy was founded in 1815 but the building was possibly built before 1804. It was among the earliest private institutions of learning in the United State,
Although occupied by the American Legion for the past 20 years, it was willed to the St. John's Episcopal Church in Olney, and a member of the Legion believes that it would take an act of the Maryland legislature to sell it.
When the Academy outgrew this building, it purchased Merrywood (now owned by Dr. and Mrs. M. Joseph Reitman), a pillared stone mansion half a mile from Brookeville. Merry-wood stands majestically atop a gently rolling hill and commands a sweeping view of many of its 80 acres,
The 24 to 36 inch walls of the original structure guard the random width floors and two hand carved original mantels of this completely restored, spacious manor house, which was included on the St. John's Episcopal Church tour from Olney this fall. The first part of the house was built between 1748 and 1796 by Thomas Riggs whose descendants till live in Brookeville. In fact, many descendants of the early settlers, including the Brookes, still live in neighboring communities.
In the village, on the right and sitting back from the road, is an intriguing stone house believed to have been connected with a mill. Its present owner, Roy E. Graham, was told it actually was the mill. Built in 1770 the origional two rooms, one above
are 15 feet deep. No stairway existed in this early part, and there is evidence that a ladder used through an opening in the ceiling for access to the upper floor The room on the lower level was the kitchen with an enormous stone hearth. It remains in-tact with the hand-hewn ceiling beams in what is now the dining room; The walls are plastered with crushed oyster shells, hogs hair and lime mixed with water.
Two interesting little out buildings punctuate the aura of primitive life that clearly prevailed when the Graham's house flourished as the mill house.
One is the wood smoke house, considered to be even older than the original building, the other is the stone spring or cooling house, built with arrowpoints similar to those in a medieval castle which were designed for protection. Formerly, title to property in Brookeville carried a provision enabling residents to use the easement on Graham's property so they could have access to the spring, over which the house stands.
Most of the homes have their own stories A house once called Conner's Private Entertainment, was built from a Sears Roebuck catalogue. But the most significant historically is the Madison House, built before 1800 and now owned by Mr. and Mrs. Gene Archer. This home is presumed to have been built by Caleb Bently, first postmaster of Brookville's still existing Post Office, which was established in 1802 by Thomas Jefferson,
While the British were burning Washington during the War of 1812, President James Madison and several other refugees from the city, found shelter in the home of peace-loving Quakers. Wrote one of these refugees in 1815. "The appearance of this little village is romantic and beautiful, with a stream flowing at the bottom on which are mills,"
The present owners of these early homes demonstrate by their preservation efforts an abiding regard for a past so rapidly being dismantled.
It is only in recent years that "we are fully realizing the extent to which these historic homes are imperiled," said Commissioner Anderson, And with this realization has developed a public consciousness of historic preservation legislation proposed by Delegate Lucille Mauler of Montgomery County,

The following material is miscellaneous contributed by Miss Mary Helen Pemberton, 150 W. High St,, W. Milton, OH 45383.
Prior to 1752, March was the first month of the year, so when the figure
"1" was used in an origional record, it should continued in that manner.
Or, in this manner: "1st month (Mar) 1678." Otherwise, everything published
would be incorrect as so many books are. Many books have been published
by people who did not know this at the time. There is also a variation
of days. I do not have the exact rule at hand.

Non-member query: Hunt, Mrs. Francis Towle, Box 215, East Wareham, MA
C2538. I want to give an honor to my home town of Pittsfield, NH . In my
NH in the Great Rebellion by Henry Robinson, Plummer Brooks was the
youngest sol in the northern army of the CivW. He had a first initial "J.".
Plummer Brooks was 14yrs 8 months, I think. There were younger drummer
boys, but he was in active service. My Pittsfield, NH also had the distinction
of having the oldest sol in the northern army, I realize that with further
research, Plummer Brooks may have been found to not be the youngest Union
sol. (This is my query.) If interested, I can copy for you Plummer's record
from my book.
