Birth: Mar. 17, 1794, Ireland
Death: Oct. 28, 1884
Carroll County
Ohio, USA

Son of Henry Brooks 1754 to 1819 who died while migrating from Ireland.
Brooks - October 28, 1884 at the home of Sholl Toot, son in law of the deceased, Henry Brooks, Sr. - aged 90 years 7 months 11 days. Deceased was one of the most widely known characters in Carroll County, having lived in Union Township settlement for perhaps 66 years or more. He was born in Ireland and married but a short time before coming to this country. The young couple landed at Philadelphia and soon thereafter in company with other friends started to walk to Carroll County, this state a feat they accomplished in 17 days. They were soon followed by many other friends and relatives and the settlement has long been known as "Irish Ridge". Deceased has been as his years attest an industrious, temperate and frugal man. The society in which he was a shining light, the church of his adoption, and the political party of his choice, were honored by his membership and his name will long be cherished. The remains were interred yesterday by the side of those of his wife.
